THE VAGARIES OF RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE by Daniel Gilbert (Edge)
Read this fascinating article on The Vagaries of Religious Experience carefully because it is not saying what you may think at first. Daniel Gilbert explores the nature of religious experience and shows how a good deal of what we might interpret as God's action may not be so. Gilbert is not arguing that his evidence shows there is no God. But what he is suggesting is that what we know about the human mind gets rid of the worst caricatures of God.
