Book Tours: How We Believe (Michael Shermer) (1999)
Corinne Edwards interviews Michael Shermer, author of How We Believe. He discusses human beliefs and how they change over time. He argues that the reason people believe in a higher power is because human nature leads us to be pattern seekers. We have a need to believe in something greater than ourselves, and that reoccurring patterns in daily occurrences resemble what most people perceive as a higher power.
