Baptist ministers son

I am a Baptist ministers son and a happy atheist. You would love the book The Birth of Consiousness and the Breakown of the bicameral Mind, by Julain Jaynes. He explains how most feelings of a god are mental abilities that we are losing. A good thing I think . It helps explain how very intelligent people we respect believe. Well if they feel a spiritual presence how can they not. Most honest and sincere religous leaders acknowledge there is no scientific basis for belief but if they "feel" a presence to pray to its hard to ignore.

I don't feel it.
