A Conversation for Neurotheology - The God-Shaped Hole in the Head
GentleZacharias Started conversation Dec 17, 2003
On a related subject, you may be interested in Neal Stephenson's wildly entertaining and interesting "Snow Crash". (It's a book, but I don't know how to underline.) He talks about the boundaries of religion and neurology a great deal.

It is a brilliant book, and now I am going to have to re-read it, which will be a good way to spend chrimbo. Have you read 'The Diamond Age'? In fact all his books are good.
(PS - there is no way to underline in the conversations, I'm afraid).

I started "The Diamond Age", but then my friend stole it from me and is reading it, so now I am about halfway through "Cryptonomicon" which purports to be a little more difficult to follow than "Snow Crash." Although I do find that I have to reread all of his books at least twice to really get everything that goes on.

Definitely. I think I read Crypto first, then Snow Crash, then the Diamond Age.
A friend gave me QuickSilver a while back, but it is set in the past, not the future, and it covers three or four stories in series not parallel, and I got stuck at the end of the first of them. I'll try picking it up again over the holidays.
I gave Crypto to my sister for Christmas; she will adore it and read it to her husband who will also adore it.
