Summary
Analysis of the clash of faith and reason in today's world; historical tour of mankind's willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs, even when those beliefs are used to justify atrocities; asserts that in the shadow of weapons of mass destruction, we can not expect to survive our religious differences indefinitely. Argues that moderate lip service to religion only blinds us to the real perils of fundamentalism; draws on new evidence from neuroscience and insights from philosophy to explore spirituality as a biological, brain-based need
