Cognitive Scientists on Religion

This NPR 13.7 article on a cognitive science conference at UT Austin offers 15 videos on religion and cognition.  The clips are 2 to 5 minutes long and address such questions as: How is the process of acquiring religious and scientific explanations similar?   Why should scientists care about religion?   How can evolutionary perspectives on religion inform the science and religion dialogue?    Are scientific and religious explanations philosophically incompatible?  Some of these Q&As could serve as useful unit content.  Several or all might be used to create a unit or a course.
