Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.

Apologies for being late. Without further ado, here are this week’s selections in the social sciences on ResearchBlogging.org:

  • What’s the deal with religious ferver? Does it make us more inclined to torture? Tom Rees investigates these questions at Epiphenom.
  • Cris Campbell of Genealogy of Religion traces the role of agriculture in ritual, and proposes that we actually have very little to worry about if we should ever encounter one of the Children of the Corn.
  • Kristina Killgrove of Powered By Osteons corrects Papa Berenstein of the long-running children’s series, The Berenstein Bears. He tells Sister that only trees have annual rings, but it seems that humans also have annual rings that can be roughly correlated to age.

    I’ll be back next week with more from the social sciences.

      Does your weblog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your weblog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, excellent website and I appear forward to seeing it expand over time.
