Religion = Brain Dysfunction?


Jack Burns has a great description in this post: The Southern Wedding of a Fundamentalist Christian wedding, replete with all of the hypocrisy and flamboyant irrationalisty that one would expect from extremist religion.

Now we learn that this god thing may be a brain dysfunction. The BBC reveals, in this article, that epileptics can have religious experiences during seizures, and even atheists can have a “universal oneness” experience through brain stimulation. It seems that human brains are hard-wired to produce what is interpreted as a religious experience under unusual stimulation.

Just as I thought – religion is an irrational, abnormal brain condition that has been exploited for the benefit of those seeking power over others.

Which means, of course, that religion can be cured!
