On this episode of ID The Future, Anika Smith interviews science writer Denyse O’Leary about her book, The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Case for the Existence of the Soul.

In the book O’Leary and her co-author Mario Beaurogard, neuroscientist and Associate Professor at Université de Montréal, explore the question of whether or not the mind is an illusion as materialists believe. The Spiritual Brain looks at whether religious experiences come from God or are merely the random firing of neurons in the brain. Drawing on his own research with Carmelite nuns, Beauregard shows that genuine, life-changing spiritual events can be documented. He and O’Leary offer compelling evidence that mind creates matter, rather than matter creating mind.

My Note: You will notice that those who are imbued  with the Darwinist perspective  . . . life and mind are a product of an accident of nature . . .  point out that brain surgery opens the way to spirituality and offering insight into the use of the phrase, “Half wit.”  (See Related Articles)

    Denyse O’ Leary is no science writer. She knows nothing about science. She is a christian apologist and creationist.
