|Can Religions be Assessed Objectively?
Lamond, lecturer in philosophy at Wernberg University in Austria, argues
that there is a pragmatic test for the existence of one or more deities:
do they answer prayers or invocations? He argues that on that basis,
every deity of every faith has proved his or her existence. In this
lecture he sets out to define these "deities" : are they thought forms
of the human mind, archetypes or in fact "gateways to forces of life
or of the cosmos?"
