Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods by E. Fuller Torrey

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods by E. Fuller TorreyEnter to win one of ten signed hardcover copies.

The book shows how the gods, and then formal religions, are virtually inevitable outcomes of the cognitive evolution of the human brain. It integrates recent findings on brain function with archeological, anthropological, child development, neuropsychology, and animal behavior studies to offer answers to questions such as the following:

• Where and when did the first gods appear, and why did they appear when they did?

• Why is it very unlikely that Neanderthals had gods?

• Why were most of the major religions organized in the brief “Axial Age” between 800 and 200 BCE?

A reviewer for the journal Religion (2018, 48: 500) said: “This is the book I have been waiting for…I have no doubt that it will set the standard in the field for at least a decade or more.”
Publishers Weekly added: “Presented in a manner that is accessible to nonscientists […] (an) insightful, thought-provoking work.”

Professor Robert Sapolsky of Stanford University wrote: “A unique scholarly approach to the subject that is sure to be influential and highly regarded.”

National History Book Services said: “Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods makes a very convincing argument. And the fact that the book avoids polarizing the topic with unnecessary anti-religious sentiment will hopefully see many more people read it.”

Now available in paperback.
