I wonder if there is this link between religion and OCD? Can compulsions be "turned on" in otherwise healthy people? I'd love to hear from some experts.

There is an excellent lecture by Robert Sapolsky dealing with the part these disorders probably played in the development of religion.

It's rather long at 80 minutes, but it is very informative.

Merry Christmas to everyone.
