This is the most and succint and accurate explanation I have come across to the great conundrum of religion and 'GOD'. The author insightfully draws upon the physiological roots of 'spirituality' stating that there is a part of the brain, likened with evolution; that has allowed the myth of 'GOD' to be perpetuated.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to find 'answers' and have not found it in any religion.

Thank you.
