    The researchers asked religious and nonreligious test subjects to ponder God as a savior, a forgiver, and a moral guide. The fMRI scans revealed activation of particular neural pathways, including those in the anterior prefrontal cortex. But this brain region is not used only for religious thought. Investigator Jordan Grafman says it is also a center for empathy and for the perception that others have thoughts and feelings of their own. “People were using established cognitive processes to try to understand the actions of a supernatural being,” he says.

    Oh, that is funny. Empathy and perception that others have thoughts and feelings of their own? I guess that may be true of Christians in other countries, but here? OK, maybe a few. A very few. Tell you what. Ask the gays their opinion.

    Especially funny, leave it to science to "find God". Science succeeds where religion fai.....

    Of course then there were the experiments of Dr. Duncan MacDougall. Who attempted to weigh the Human soul.

    One may find interesting the thoughts of this man who's website is below.
    I first heard of him from the media.

    Christopher Michael Langan states:

    "What does this say about God? First, if God is real, then God inheres in the comprehensive reality syntax, and this syntax inheres in matter. Ergo, God inheres in matter, and indeed in its spacetime substrate as defined on material and supramaterial levels. This amounts to pantheism, the thesis that God is omnipresent with respect to the material universe. Now, if the universe were pluralistic or reducible to its parts, this would make God, Who coincides with the universe itself, a pluralistic entity with no internal cohesion"

    Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe

    The rest, if interested you can google or youtube search the rest of Langans videos.
