God=Brain; Brain=God?

Researchers are determined to localize a spiritual center within the brain. Across the anthropological history of the Navajo, the ingestion of psychosomatic drugs augments spirituality. While most of these drugs are hallucinogens, it is important to remember that the hallucinogenic effects of these drugs manifest from perturbed neurochemistry within the brain (mainly serotonin and dopamine). A more extensive review of this research is documented on NPR’s website today (thanks, Christina!).

I ask; does this mean that the difference between an athiest, a moderate, and a fundamental believer is a mere and marginal reflection of varying neuromodulation?!

  1. There’s definitely *something* different between the brain of a fundamentalist and a non-fundamentalist. 😉
