rainy but still warmish.

Last night attended the first of this year’s Minns Lectures by Branden Thornhill-Miller. Covered a broad range of findings and theory regarding the Psychology of Religion.

Odd factoid: some of the prayer-and-healing studies seem to indicate that people who know they are being prayed for have more complications than others. He speculates that it may be because they are thinking “Things must be bad if I’ve got so many people praying for me.”

Are we “Wired for God” or simply wired to imagine personal beings where none are present?

Tonight: the psychology of us UUs.
