    DescriptionBorn to Believe is accessible, entertaining popular science, the first to explore human beliefs, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. It presents the controversial argument that we human beings are biologically hardwired to create and maintain a system of beliefs. And it demonstrates that even our perception of reality is nothing more than a constructed belief filled with inaccuracies, assumptions, conjectures, and confabulations. Even our childhood memories are filled with beliefs about events that never occurred.

    Review quote
    "Our beliefs are the most precious things we possess. But how do we get them? Newberg and Waldman propose a thoughtful, well-documented, biological hypothesis...[that is] fascinating for believers and nonbelievers alike." -- Dean Hamer, PhD, geneticist and author of "Living with Our Genes" and "The God Gene"
