Understanding the concept of “Man making God”


dprjones has another great YouTube clip. As an aside, I highly recommend his YouTube channel, he has lots of great stuff … and no, he has not paid me to plug it, I do not personally know him.

OK, so the specific set of clips I’m highlighting today revolves around a book by Andy Thomson.

The Book: Why We Believe in God(s): A Concise Guide to the Science of Faith

The Author: J. Anderson Thomson, Jr., MD, is a Trustee of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science and a staff psychiatrist for Counseling and Psychological Services at the University of Virginia Student Health Center, as well as the University of Virginia’s Institute for Law, Psychiatry and Public Policy. Thomson also has his own private practice, and is a forensic psychiatrist for Region Ten Community Services.

Tempting as it might be to read and then recap the book, dprjones has gone one better and interviewed the author. Here it is … enjoy.
