    This book presents research that supports the naturalistic stance that the mind is identical to the brain. The author argues that if one were to look at the idea that the mind is the brain, then it follows logically that free will must be an illusion, that there can be no consciousness separate from the brain, and that there can be no substantial self that exists independently from the brain. He further argues that there can be no such thing as absolute moral responsibility.

    This illuminating and provocative book offers a guide to the religions of the world, focusing on the irrationality of religious beliefs. Listeners will be encouraged to reflect more carefully on why they believe what they believe. Every religion thinks it is the true religion. But clearly, they cannot all be right. The Seduction of Religion places each of the major religions in its historical context and examines some of their most important doctrines in the light of reason and common sense.
