same thing applies to the mentally challenged who think "aliens" exist on other worlds.....chuckle

Sorry, sparky, the universe is teaming with life, that is a reality and your refusal to embrace it is only a further demonstration of your limited mental capacity!!

I'm not sure why you're quoting what I think is an actor here. I wouldn't have thought their opinion on anything other than acting was worth very much. Still, the quote is valid, although it doesn't take emotions into account. For me, I have relatives who are believers, and I can therefore react to insults to believers.

I'd like to know what Rowan Atkinson says to all those who are being censored in his England for criticizing Islam. I wonder if he is even handed with critics of Islam and Christianity.

People these days just ignore self-contradictions like that.

They call it "winning".

Yep, my bad!!

Anyone that believes Earth has the only intelligent life in the whole of the cosmos, is a f*cking moron, and shouldn't be allowed an opinion about anything else!!

A study published in the journal Neuropsychologia has shown that religious fundamentalism is, in part, the result of a functional impairment in a brain region known as the prefrontal cortex. The findings suggest that damage to particular areas of the prefrontal cortex indirectly promotes religious fundamentalism by diminishing cognitive flexibility and openness—a psychology term that describes a personality trait which involves dimensions like curiosity, creativity, and open-mindedness.

Religious beliefs can be thought of as socially transmitted mental representations that consist of supernatural events and entities assumed to be real. Religious beliefs differ from empirical beliefs, which are based on how the world appears to be and are updated as new evidence accumulates or when new theories with better predictive power emerge. On the other hand, religious beliefs are not usually updated in response to new evidence or scientific explanations, and are therefore strongly associated with conservatism. They are fixed and rigid, which helps promote predictability and coherence to the rules of society among individuals within the group.

Religious fundamentalism refers to an ideology that emphasizes traditional religious texts and rituals and discourages progressive thinking about religion and social issues. Fundamentalist groups generally oppose anything that questions or challenges their beliefs or way of life. For this reason, they are often aggressive towards anyone who does not share their specific set of supernatural beliefs, and towards science, as these things are seen as existential threats to their entire worldview.

before you go lashing out at me and the article link read the study
Thats the left wing filtered RAWSTORY version of the article.
There is no link to the actual journal article.
So it's impossible to comment on the information.

really? got credible, verifiable, undeniable proof to back that up? oh, abduction stories from mentally unstable folks, youtube videos of lights, and grainy photos that could be anything are not proof.

the fact that you can't come up with any proof further demonstrates your own limited mental capacity.

the link is right there in your quote?

Quote:Abstract

Beliefs profoundly affect people's lives, but their cognitive and neural pathways are poorly understood. Although previous research has identified the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) as critical to representing religious beliefs, the means by which vmPFC enables religious belief is uncertain. We hypothesized that the vmPFC represents diverse religious beliefs and that a vmPFC lesion would be associated with religious fundamentalism, or the narrowing of religious beliefs. To test this prediction, we assessed religious adherence with a widely-used religious fundamentalism scale in a large sample of 119 patients with penetrating traumatic brain injury (pTBI). If the vmPFC is crucial to modulating diverse personal religious beliefs, we predicted that pTBI patients with lesions to the vmPFC would exhibit greater fundamentalism, and that this would be modulated by cognitive flexibility and trait openness. Instead, we found that participants with dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) lesions have fundamentalist beliefs similar to patients with vmPFC lesions and that the effect of a dlPFC lesion on fundamentalism was significantly mediated by decreased cognitive flexibility and openness. These findings indicate that cognitive flexibility and openness are necessary for flexible and adaptive religious commitment, and that such diversity of religious thought is dependent on dlPFC functionality.

that is a pretty weak complaint.. let alone completely fallacious religious circular ad nausem intended to cast doubt on it's validity.

pathetic.. haven't you hopeless tools got anything better?

you are sick people.. time to wake up.
