I have wondered for years if there is a correlation between atheism and left or right hemispherical dominance in the brain. I am right brained, (and left handed) 11/5. You can take the test yourself to determine your dominant side.

I know the right brain is visually, emotionally, and creatively motivated and the left is logical, systematic, and mathamatical. I would like to know if there is a predominance of one side over the other in atheism.

The results from this test and the one from intelliscript.net were similar but the breaking down helps me understand more.

This makes sense to me. I'm a terrible drawer, I can't improvise music at all and I frequently have a hard time sympathizing with people I think are wrong.
