[Solved]Research Help
So I'm reading along Mr. Boghossian's A Manual for Creating Atheists and I come across this passage:
Peter Boghossian Wrote:Faith is a failed epistemology. Showing why faith fails has been done before. And it has been done well (Bering, 2011; Harris, 2004; Loftus, 2010; Loftus, 2013; McCormick, 2012; Schick & Vaughn, 2008; Shermer, 1997; Shermer, 2011; Smith 1979; Stenger & Barker, 2012; Torres, 2012; Wade, 2009). There's no need to recapitulate this vast body of scholarship. Instead, I'll briefly explain what find to be one of the principle arguments against faith.

So I'm thinking to myself "Cool, let me google the hell out of this!"
Well, I can't find any information. I tried googling "Bering 2011", "Bering 2011 faith", "failed faith experiments", etc... Can't find shit. I can't be the only one, hell I came across two posts here (1, 2), one on AF, and another on DebatingChristianity that reference this exact passage, but no explanation nor outside links.

Any help or explanations would be great, thanks in advance.

Your Google skills suck ass.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Don't tug at those strings too hard brother you whole system of 'faith' I mean evidence based belief, will come tumbling down around you.

If it makes you feel any better I googled a couple different versions as well and could find anything either outside of various atheist on various forums who quoted your passage, and then I found the passage itself.. So your google skills don't suck that bad.

The Index: A/S/K Ask Seek Knock as outlined by Luke 11:5-13
Ot Old testament
Nt New testament
H/S Holy Spirit

If you want to ask me a question feel free to Pm me or E/M me. I will not speak of it to anyone.
