Study Finds Religious People Brain-Damaged

A new study draws a conclusive connection between deeply religious people and brain damage. According to information from an earlier study, researchers determined specific areas of the brain were related to the Self, while others related to something called "self-transcendence" - a catch-all term for spiritual beliefs, feelings, and etc. When damage occurred to this portion of the brain, major changes in a person's spiritual and religious beliefs followed quickly.

According to this information, researchers now believe that stimulating certain areas of the brain could cause major changes in a person's spirituality and religious beliefs.
