In the second part of this blog I provide a blueprint of how unchallenged abstractions come to sway individuals of all stripes, regardless of intelligence and/or career.
About the Author
I am an experimental psychologist by trade, and a neurotherapist on the side. My experience as both, along with a colourful life, has demonstrated to me with conviction the abstractions we believe as real to be the most fascinating and worrying aspect of human cognition. I grew up a muslim, a junkie, a boxer, and a bassist, all habits discarded over the better part of a decade, although I still attempt the bass when I can. Atheism is freedom incarnate, if only to realize those divine shackles holding us were never there.
In this two-part blog, I examine some trends in thought which contribute to the maintenance of supernatural beliefs, even amongst some intellectuals.
