"I so love it when someone writes a book that says stuff I've been saying on this blog for a long time. Except he says it even better."

In that case Brian, you'd also like the book I am reading at the moment called 'We Are Our Brains' by neuroscientist Dick Swaab. He talks about how the brain is responsible for everything we experience from consciousness, free will, NED's, morals, religion - wondering why so many people are religious and quotes Bonaparte who said "Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet."

His research is broad and detailed and sees no reason for bringing in anything remotely supernatural.

Our brain/bodies have it all - as I've always expected.
