There’s little doubt that the belief in the Judeo-Christian personal God is on a seemingly inexorable technology-driven decline. Attempts to reverse this trend by religious advocates preaching messages such as God’s love for mankind, the beauty of faith and the promise of an afterlife are not doing the job.  There is, therefore, an urgent, immediate need for a new educational approach that is concrete, factual and sufficiently persuasive to penetrate the modern mind in order to counter the anti-God movement.


Physician Stephen DeFelice takes a fresh look at the new evidence concerning the existence of a personal God by using a unique epistemological approach or a new way of knowing what he calls, “The Emoji Brain.”


The primary objective of this provocative educational book is to encourage influential religious advocates of diverse types to employ such evidence in their efforts to support the potential existence of such a personal God. This book is not intended to support any particular religion and its transcendent beliefs.



The Emoji Brain directly confronts the two major anti-God forces – Scientism and Philosophy.  For centuries, scientists, philosophers, theologians and secular intellectuals pursuing this question have become bogged down in linguistic quagmires. The Emoji Brain frees us from this trap and takes us to Maybe-Ism, the argument that persuasively supports the existence of such a God.


In the final analysis, arguments, both pro and con, regarding the existence of a personal God revolve around the combination and oftentimes manipulation of three fundamental epistemological categories.  If so, they are cause, effect and purpose. What makes something happen, what is that something and for what purpose?


Journey with Dr. DeFelice as he takes a hard, unadulterated look at how atheists, agnostics and Godists apply this threesome, beginning with where these schools of thought agree.  No matter what your belief about God is, you will most certainly see things in a new light after reading and digesting the arguments in this book.
