Episode 129 - The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture, Part 2

There are countless ways to think about religion. But should we think of it as an infectious agent?

On April 27, 2010, the Center for Inquiry – Michigan in Grand Rapids presented a lecture by organizational psychologist and former Christian fundamentalist Darrel Ray. Its title: “The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture.”

I very much enjoyed and learned from Mr. Ray’s talk. These were among my favorite Center Stage episodes. Wouldn’t mind hearing more from him.
