8. It was this specific claim that was nonsense:


He claims that science can only reach the recently evolved rational part of the brain, the neocortex, whereas religion can access the older emotional part of the brain, the limbic system.

Nobody denies that religion offers community. But if you somehow think we atheists are forced to grieve in solitude you are sadly mistaken.

What we donít do is serve up idiotic platitudes along with the food and drink and hugs as we console each other over the death of friends and family.
