Born to Believe by Andrew B. Newberg

Book Description

Born to Believeis accessible, entertaining popular science, the first to explore human beliefs, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. It presents the controversial argument that we human beings are biologically hardwired to create and maintain a system of beliefs. And it demonstrates that even our perception of reality is nothing more than a constructed belief filled with inaccuracies, assumptions, conjectures, and confabulations. Even our childhood memories are filled with beliefs about events that never occurred.
