The Most Human Thing We Do: Religion and the Need to Create

While religion is most often associated with otherworldly beings, transcendent realms, and our disposition after death, there are many reasons to believe that, in fact, the quintessential aspects of religion are the exact activities and experiences we seek out as a meaning-making and symbol-making species, especially as seen in forms of play, such as art and games.  Is there something religious in our need to create?  Is there something creative in our need for religion?  This talk will explore what it means if the answers to those questions are “yes.”
