Autism, theism and atheism
2015 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper is a critique of previous publications that aim at establishing autism as a case of atheism. I argue that such assumptions are based on a simplified understanding of both religious belief and autism, inadequate methods, and blindness to cultural impact on results. In conclusion, I hold that to date we have no reliable data that will reveal what leads autistic individuals to theism or theism, and new approaches are required for exploring the topic.
