Review by Stephen Law of 'The Case for God' by Karen Armstrong


Stephen Law describes Karen Armstrong's 'God' as a psychological state that can arise, just as easily through, for example, long arduous training in a sport leading to the 'runners high'. His review is followed by many excellent comments.

Book: The Case for God by Karen Armstrong

Karen Armstrong promulgates 'The Golden Rule' during her 2008/2009 TED broadcasts.

Stephen Law talks about apophaticism, the view of some theologians like Denys Turner, that God is unknowable. Also see Jonathan Miller's interview with Denys Turner for the 'Atheism Tapes' when Turner bangs on, if I recall correctly, about 'how can something come from nothing'.
