Here’s something that almost certainly none of you will like. I mentioned this guy in the evolution of religion thread. He studies the science of religion, so believers don’t like what he says since they already “know” what God is. Non-believers don’t like what he says because he doesn’t simply dismiss religion as something that should be dismissed and thrown out.
Within the first 15 minutes, he explains that yes, mythological explanations are not scientific, but when they were considered valid, they were “thinkable”. There was no distinction between science and myth at the time. It’s the job of the scientist today to not just know the difference, but also to understand how our brains work and why it is that we once thought that way and how that is still affecting us now.
