"Math" shuts off a part of the brain? Is that right?
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/201...154002.htm

"....the PMC is not the brain's "center of self-consciousness"...


Quote:Yet all the electrodes that lit up during the self-episodic condition were conspicuously deactivated during arithmetic calculation. In fact, the circuits being monitored by these electrodes were not merely passively silent, but actively suppressed, said Parvizi. "The more a circuit is activated during autobiographical recall, the more it is suppressed during math. It's essentially impossible to do both at once."


I wonder if the same thing happens with theological literature to a religious wingnut?

I think what the 'science' is rendering is that returning to reactive measure (maintaining theorem within the mind) can affect some adversely. Perhaps even make it so some cannot even tie their own shoes.

I am bugged that many hold a 'law of nature' over their own capability!

I can't seem to stop sneezing today.

I wonder if I'm coming down with something.

Could be allergies. Allergy season is winding down, but flu season hasn't started yet.

I would love to reply in a serious way, but I feel that I'll simply get trolled.

each item shares something that is being 'currently' observed, in science and i am weird enough to point out items.

the trolls, eat garbage, with cake all over their faces.

Did you know, before today, that the brain did that during calculation?

it is almost like going against nature to adher to a 'belief' knowing damn well, that the adhered too concept, is contradicting your own experience.

ie... following a belief, and then witnessing that the practioners are the most horrid of law breakers, that you were told to accept.

iee..... the second 'law' (2LoT) is to be repealed to the 'pirates code' as a sort of 'guideline', too.

I think you may have some interesting things to say, but you are not succeeding in communicating them.

What is your original language?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
