Harley Faggetter replied to Sally Morem's discussion Are religious experiences the result of brain damage? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

"Sally, Please excuse the lengthy reply but there was mush food for thought here. I imagine that the title to your post was tongue-and-cheek but I don't think that the religious experience is an abnormal behavior that arises out of some…"

Gert Nutov replied to Sally Morem's discussion Are religious experiences the result of brain damage? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Dno where did i heard this,but the thing is that some scientists constructed a special helmet,which stimulates a certain area in the brain thus creating what religious people call godlike/spiritular experience."

Jim DePaulo replied to Sally Morem's discussion Are religious experiences the result of brain damage? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"A strong indication that religion is, in part, influenced by our genetics is that it occurs in nearly every culture extant but also, all cultures of the past. Parts of the human population have been separated by 70,000 years or more - cultural…"

"A very interesting article. As a teenager I had a few "religious experiences" which (at the time) I believed were direct communication with God. As I grew older and my scepticism grew I had great difficulty figuring out what these…"

Jason Spicer replied to Sally Morem's discussion Darwinian Conservatism in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"And don't forget the criminal justice system. Conservatives are so eager to dispense with due process, ignoring the fact that they'd be screaming for it if they were ever in the government's crosshairs. Weird that they think…"

Here's a friendly Hi to writer Sally Morem in Minnesota

We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.

This is a fantastic meeting place with its 14,500 bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that God and gods are nothing but fictions in people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy lively discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
