No one believes God exists because it is a ‘preposterous’ idea, according to Graham Lawton, author of a new book on the human existence.

Mr Lawton argues people want to believe religious claims because they have a ‘God-shaped conceptual space waiting to be filled’.

But deep down people don’t actually think it’s true – not even priests and nuns.

The controversial author suggests that as our lives become more stable, society could become more ‘godless’ as our need for religion fades away.

n ‘How to be Human‘, Mr Lawton analyses the strange things that make us human – including human’s propensity to find religion attractive, arguing that it is the default path of the human mind.

Mr Lawton, who wrote the book with New Scientist Editor-at-Large Jeremy Webb, has a degree in biochemistry from Imperial College.
