This is your brain on God

Im totally buying into this article from NewScientist.    One can imagine a long list of evolutionary advantages the organizing power  of religion confers to believers, to say nothing of providing a vocabulary  for the expression of concepts seemingly near and dear to human existence that otherwise lack suitable outlets.  Interesting because this pegs religion somewhere below the expression of objective eternal realities but somewhere above complete and total bullshit.

It does not however explain a lot of other annoying shit.
