Neurotheology: Are Humans Hardwired for Faith in God?

CNN has carried a number of religious-oriented articles of late. This one was kind of interesting about scientists studying the human brain and its connection with a person’s faith in God. It seems that there is a new field emerging called neurotheology.

I believe the answer to the question posed in the subject head of this post is “Yes.” We all have faith in something, someone or some ideology. We are all worshippers. This is true even for those who don’t believe in God. It’s just that they are their own god.

  1. As a Christian who is also certifiably insane, it troubles me that my faith may be integrally connected to my brain.
