The Neural Buddhist

"Neural Buddhist" - I think this is an appropriate title for my current mindset about God and religion. Ironic that it takes a staunch conservative like Brooks to articulate such a liberal view of God belief. The advance of Science Brooks posits will end belief in the Bible but not in God...

"First, the self is not a fixed entity but a dynamicprocess of relationships. Second, underneath thepatina of different religions, people around the worldhave common moral intuitions. Third, people areequipped to experience the sacred, to have moments ofelevated experience when they transcend boundaries andoverflow with love. Fourth, God can best be conceivedas the nature one experiences at those moments, the unknowable total of all there is."
