Scientists discover the brain's 'God spot'... and show that faith helps human survival | Mail Online: "Scientists searching for a 'God spot' in the brain have found three areas that control religious belief.

A study of 40 participants, including Christians, Muslims, Jews and Buddhists, showed the same areas lit up when they were asked to ponder religious and moral problems.

MRI scans revealed the regions that were activated are those used every day to interpret the feelings and intentions of other people."
