That's interesting.
I wonder how long it will be before they identify the pathways responsible for religious belief ?

Damn phone, I'm unable to open the link. Undecided

But this seems similar to the areas they found in the brain when stimulated the can reproduce the "death" experience, complete with tunnel, dead relatives, content feeling... interesting.

I would have to think that "religious belief" is more like a OCD condition and it's pathway would be something else that would indirectly trigger the behavior.

Very cool insights... can't wait to get to that link. Smile

Oh, sweet sensations. Of course, just because we can make this all known through a physical explanation doesn't mean God didn't dunnit!

Well they did say guardian angels, so that's pretty much is.
I'd love to see those ghosts finally stop getting air time. Don't get me wrong, I love a good ghost story but not when they posits that its actually real on the most flimsy evidence ever conceived. Then again that electronic voice phenomena did bring me out of that superstition as the "voices" you hear are so subjective you can make up multiple words or phrases being said, and when some one says " listen to when she says help me" that is exactly what you will hear, so suggestive.

That won't stop those who love manipulating science to fit their supernatural beliefs though... now instead of just electromagnetic field readers picking up ghosts, they'll start saying those scans are picking up actual ghosts inhabiting our brains.

I've just shown this article to my believer friend. His response:

RE: Brain center responsible for ghosts identifed
Unfortunately you can always impose god following any sort of discovery. Look at all the back-petaling the Catholic Church has done recently. The bible is true except for those little bits where God didn't really mean what he was saying lol!
