TWO PROVISIONAL TRUTHS
[That’s how scientists speak of our current knowledge about reality]
FIRST PROVISIONAL TRUTH
THE BRAIN GENERATES BELIEFS AND REINFORCES THEM AS TRUTHS -Belief comes naturally, but analytical thinking has to be learned!

(Times Books, 2011)
SECOND PROVISIONAL TRUTH
SOCIETY GENERATED MORALITY AND RELIGION REINFORCED IT AS TRUTH –Religion had a “Johnny-come-lately” role with respect to human morality!
