    Cognitive Science, Religion, and Theology is the eighth title published in the Templeton Science and Religion Series, in which scientists from a wide range of fields distill their experience and knowledge into brief tours of their respective specialties. In this volume, well-known cognitive scientist Justin L. Barrett offers an accessible overview of this interdisciplinary field, reviews key findings in this area, and discusses the implications of these findings for religious thought and practice.

    Story

    After listening to “Thinking Fast and Slow” first, I think Barrets book is a good review of the latest cognitive science research but where “Thinking Fast and Slow” doesn’t consider the question of whether God exists or not, Barret seems to use the research to support the argument (as I understand it) that since a belief in a god exists in a mind, it must have been perceived, and since most perceptions are likely to be true, then the perception that a god exists is likely to be true.
    For me, this sort of argument works in Dodge ball, but not in investment decisions. In my view he undervalues the aspects of Quality of Information, Risk and Quality of Evidence in order to weakly justify a naturally occurring belief in a God.
