Altered public meme: Jesus Kills Brains

Recent FMRI studies indicate that (as suspected) increased intensity of belief in superstition/magic, leads to a decrease in function of the parts of the brain associated with rational thought or problem solving abilities. More studies are required to eliminate such things as confirmation bias, though it's higly probable!

LOL!  Just noticed the missing "h" in highly, just lowered my touch typing speed by 5.

So very true Loren, especially when it comes to discrepencies between Biblical descriptions of reality and actual reality, such as creation stories and causes for disasters in the O.T. with the claiming of responsibility for teachings by Jesus of lessons that already existed in Buddhism and Confucism for half a millenium in the N.T.   Not to mention the blatant display of extreme narcissistic megalomania by their god in both, showing that it is hardly a caring, rational being and totally devoid of any omniscience.

Great take on this, Loren.

Maybe ... but flip it around and it works, too:


Those who actually USE their brains, particularly in thinking clearly will see through the BS which is both the old and new testaments and reject both.

Nice two-edged sword, really.
