Why We Believe in Gods: Andy Thomson (Lecture)
This great lecture summarizes scientific research that explains why humans have an inclination to create divinity.
It is not a defense of atheism, but rather shows what science says about the various modules & capabilities that humans have developed over thousands of years that lend themselves to the creation & acceptance of religious explanations.
Although the presenter made clear that he is not a man of faith, the conference is not an attack on the church as much as an explanation for why people might believe. Very current and a good intro for anyone who wants to learn more about this topic.
