Post Biological Underpinnings of Religiosity

This is a lecture by Robert Sapolsky. It's a part of a course that's posted on Stanford's YT channel but this one lecture wasn't included for some reason.

Lecture Collection | Human Behavioral Biology a link to a playlist containing all the lectures in that course (except the one I linked above).
Did you see that ludicrous display last night?

I'm 11:27 into this and it's a really long lecture. WarK, is this guy somehow trying put religiosity and mental illness in the same category? I will continue it at a later time, but I do not have the time to watch a hour and 20 minute video at this time.

I take it back. I am watching the whole thing. I find it interesting and the Prof is funny.

*Edit Again*

Great freakin video

Indeed - Sapolsky, along with Frans de Waal, are top-notch primatologists.
