Terry Gross interview of Stanford Anthropologist re "When God Talked Back"
Terry Gross interviewed a Stanford Anthropologist, on Fresh Air today. Tanya Luhrman had some interesting stuff to say about her study of a CA fundie group.

I was kind of shocked how easy it was to question her conclusions/results of her 4 week "iPod study", (seemed like VERY poorly designed research, and obviously questionable interpretation of the results). But her ideas about the cultural shift in American's ideas about a "god", is pretty interesting. (She also seems to miss the obvious neurophysiological basis of "prayer"...beta-endorphin release). http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer...04-09-2012 Einstein
