My new book, "Contradictions between Neuroscience and Religion".

Posted on October 24, 2012 at 10:15am 0 Comments

I am very happy that "Contradictions" was exhibited in the Springer booth during the Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in New Orleans.  The book shows that the brain itself accounts for all what we are, and that it is not necessary to postulate, like Descartes did the existence of the soul or any other supernatural substances.  The down side is that at our death, we will be back at the same state in which we were before we were born.  The show will be over!
