Decades ago, I read a short article, by Carl Sagan, in Reader's Digest, called "Amniotic Universe". I think it was excerpted from his book, "Broca's Brain". I've repeated Google searches over the last 10 years trying to find that article but haven't been able to find a (free) copy. I'd gladly pay but that's difficult to do from the Philippines.
Anyway . . . the article relates the birth experience to religion and makes many wonderful, powerful, correlations. If ANYBODY has a copy, please post it here or email it to AtheistExile@gmail.com.
