So aside from the psychological effects is there any thing scientific that we can look at, with regards to religion?

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

Quote:"People who reported an intimate experience of God, engaged in religious
behavior or feared God, tended to have larger-than-average brain regions
devoted to empathy, symbolic communication and emotional regulation.
The research wasn’t trying to measure some kind of small “God-spot,” but
looked instead at broader patterns within the brains of self-reported
religious people."

I wonder what would happen if you asked these guys what do you think about atheists. What region of their brains would light up? I bet you it'd look rather aggressive.
