Writing under the pen name John F. Brain, the author of The Natural Bible for Modern and Future Man calls upon the most advanced knowledge of modern neuroscience to discuss the origin and practice of religions around the world. The author uses contemporary knowledge of the interaction of the three principal development stages of neural evolution in humans to explain the wide range of religious beliefs and related behavior among the various cultures in the global community. This book is directed towards those interested in issues such as separation of church and state, the ethical application of new human sciences, changing views of sexuality, and the continued clash of cultures around the globe. The Natural Bible for Modern and Future Man strongly emphasizes the need for greater care in exercising the responsibilities of leadership, especially those involved in legislative, judicial, and educational processes.
