Belief Out Of the Closet: Believing in the 21st Century | Hester Oberman | TEDxUofA

We are not wise sapiens, but Homo Anxious. We need purpose to direct our lives. When we are scared, we regress to a more primitive part of the brain the amygdala where we construct bifurcated narratives of ‘us versus them.’ This feeds a polarization and dehumanization by othering the other; and ‘we’ always are the heroes. Ideas are beliefs, abstract imagined realities. Ideas we believe in hold power, value, and the impetus to share with others. We all believe in some big abstract idea like money, science, or God. There is no such thing as a nonbeliever. What is your idea you believe is worth spreading? Hester Oberman was mostly trained in The Netherlands (Amsterdam and Leiden) and Germany (Tuebingen), with a Ph.D in Psychology of Religion and Philosophy of Religion. She works in the Religious Studies & Classics Department, and is also affiliated with the Honors College. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Dude.. dont tell us a story.. present a claim with data, and not give us the science behind your conclusion... Youre basically just telling a story without the punchline.. message Lost!

That's a big chunk of TED talks in a nutshell.

A little hard to follow the speech style, but I did manage to pick out some strong ideas. Will look around for other presentations or writings. Thanks. ... I got a question Ms Oberman (or anyone who cares to answer) . Do you believe we are overdue "a leap" or "revolution" in religious believes to a new form of religious thinking ? Perhaps brought on by a need to relate better to today's cultural forms, new sufferings, errors and misreasoning, yet a higher general intelligence ?

"When we are scared, we regress to a more primitive part of the brain the amygdala where we construct bifurcated narratives of ‘us versus them." Talking directly about trump and the GOP.

Hydrochloric Acid The world will become more educated and religion will obviously begin to falter as they do. But atheists and agnostics typically don’t have a very high fertility rate as demographics.
