I think you are being a bit unfair here, neuroscientific? what does that mean?
look if you are not familiar with neuroscience i understand, so let me put it this way- medical data substantiating proof where the frontal lobe of the brain reveals an adverse effect when religion is introduced
If the real world of the religious and their need to suspend reason in favor of reality isn't enough then what would be?
It is very true that people who are religious, and I would expect this to be a gradation and not a true false type thing, they do not look at religion with the same reason that they would other things.
is that conjecture or are you suggesting a use of variation on neural pathways?
i know many personally who will trust anyone who claims to be a christian instead of going with any kind of reputation check. They get fleeced by a company that sells them "christian" goods or "christian" work and then can't understand why a christian would do such a thing, reason is out the window... Christians that do not trust Muslims or Jews for no reason other than nonsense.
Personal choice here. If one simply does not do their homework before purchasing, then thats their fault
Reason never figures into religion.
what? Christian apologists are forever attempting to reason
When it comes to religion people do not apply the same amount of reason to religious information as they do to other types of information.
how would you know? are you in their mind?
I don't understand what you ate looking for as neuroscientific data, brain wave patterns or something? I doubt you can get that for any specific human meme...
Religion actually demands the suspension of reason and in some way gets it from every theist, some are so sure they do not seek medical care in favor of being healed by god, one group actually died out because they were so sure god didn't want them to reproduce, they deny reality in many ways some more extreme than others but it an actual prerequisite for religious belief...
Don't feign concern here; you are showing yourself to be double minded. You would better serve your point with survival of the fittest
I will try to amass some statistical data but neuroscientific???
yes neuroscience preferably, be specific, pull data, support your claim. Rambling rants serve no purpose other than to shoot peoples and their faiths down- this is unacceptable. Just because organised religion doesn't work for you doesn't mean that others don't need it for whatever particular reason. Why should you play God and dictate what is good and right for an individual?
