On Point's Tom Ashbrook takes a look at religion with philosopher Daniel Denett. Denett's theory has religion (all types) blend seemlessly with evolution in an unexpected way. He believes that religion is a process of evolution. He wants to study the whole process of religion using scientific standards. A fascinating interview. You can listen by clicking the link below. Another guest, Stephen Pope (Professor of Theology, Boston College) adds his 2 cents as well.
Dennet's conclusion is that religion is not miraculous or supernatural, but a product of nature itself -- of Darwinian evolution, like the finch's beak or the opposable thumb. If that sounds like sacrilege, maybe it is.
