Stanford professor's Tanya Luhrmann and Michelle Karnes teach "Belief," a Thinking Matters course that asks the big (and unanswerable) question why people believe in God. Some scholars argue that belief results from direct experience, such as visions or moments of transcendence, that testify to God’s existence. Others suggest that belief in the supernatural is better explained by the way the human mind has evolved or people’s experience of the social world.
