The book for March is “SuperSense: Why We Believe in the Unbelievable.” Bruce  M. Hood

SuperSense is a fascinating book about how our brain works (or doesn’t!) Children reason about the unseen aspects of their word, and doing so leads them to beliefs that form the basis of later adult supernatural notions. We are therefore wired to believe in the supernatural. Hood gives many examples of sources and evidence of secular and religious supernatural beliefs. Which ones do you believe?

The Carnegie Library has seven copies and used copies are 1¢ plus shipping at Amazon.
