Brains Hard Wired for Belief

Thanks for the link. I tend to think that the propensity for magical thinking is hardwired into the human psyche and that religion meets some psychological need.

That is why I tend to disagree with atheists who insist upon lumping liberal and fundamentalist theists together. I don't think that magical thinking is a problem as long as a person is capable of recognizing when he or she is engaging in it.
