Thrive Center Director, Dr. Justin Barrett, spoke September 13-14th, 2013 at the Cognitive Science of Religion Conference, “Is Christianity Natural?” at Seattle Pacific University. Barrett was an invited plenary speaker at the conference alongside Emory University’s Robert McCauley.
In the conference’s opening plenary session, Barrett was the respondent to McCauley’s lecture, “Why Religion is Natural and Science Is Not.” Barrett gave his lecture, “How to Train Your Dragon: A Christian Response to the Cognitive Science of Religion” in the closing plenary session, to which McCauley then responded.

It’s hard to believe how fast time goes by and that it has been nearly one year since Dr. Justin Barrett’s installation as the chair of the Thrive Center for Human Development. If you missed the installation last year, here’s a chance to take a look back.
