Foreign Ideas & Moral Indigestion

Welcome to anyone coming from Genealogy of Religion! I hope you enjoy what you find here. It’s not much, yet — I’ve just started! — but more is coming soon. Of course, if you don’t like what you see, feel free to let me know; it will only help me improve as a blogger!

For anyone who is coming to ATOM from anywhere else, Cris, the blogger behind Genealogy of Religion (an awesome religion science blog; you must check it out), came upon my blog a few days ago and was extraordinarily kind in offering to introduce me and have me do a guest post. I decided to write about some new research from my own lab on disgust at ideas. Here’s a teaser:

Imagine you are dining at a friend’s home. Your host is excited because she has prepared a special dish for you. When dinner is finally served, you are surprised to see a whole egg on your plate and when you open the egg, you are even more surprised to see this . . .

To find out what’s on your plate and what that might have to do with religion, you’ll need to read the whole post over at Genealogy of Religion!
