Religion in a Nutshell

(((evolutionary pychology and cognitive studies in religion summed up brilliantly in under two minutes by a stand-up comic; yes, it leaves out some nuance . . . emphasis on some.)))

Patton Oswalt has a brilliant little bit on the development of religion. Hmm, maybe I can embed it. I never tried that.

It worked!

Anyway, if you follow this, then you've finished about half my intro to religion course. And this is cheaper, although maybe not funnier. Ahem.

mildly nsfw, btw. some language, you know the drill.

btw -- it occurs to me that this is the nietzsche remix of cognitive studies of religion.
