Evolution, religion, schizophrenia and the schizotypal personality

A lecture by top Stanford Anthroplogist. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! *

One of his quotes (now famous) from the video, regarding the contribution of schizotypal thinking to religion:

"Get it wrong, and we call it a cult. Get it right, and maybe, for the next few millennia, people won't have to go to work on your birthday."

* over 80 minutes long so hunker down (well worth it for people with an interest in these things)

And, in the meantime BPG battles on with his everyday small business dealing with chartered accountants SA, man, is this taxing, boring work!
