Huffington Post Blog Entry: Ritual is Power

Please check out my recent blog post sponsored by the American Anthropological Association on the October 24, 2012 edition of The Huffington Post. The brief entry discusses religion’s role in contemporary society and the possible evolutionary roots to its existence in human culture.

In the near future I hope to explore the evolutionary advantages of ritual. Using my current fieldwork at Huaricanga as an example I hope to evaluate the impact of religious activities on human behavior to answer very basic anthropological questions.
