We can never undersrand what God is. But Jordan Peterson tries his best to make a professional analysis and use his research to discuss his ideas with adamant atheist, Sam Harris.
Its refreshing to see two well educated individuals discuss this topic. But IMO I feel like Peterson is looking at it from an agnostic perspective, and noting the psycholigical benifits of being a society built on religious morals. Regardless he presents some very well thought out and valid points on why we need religion in society.
