Go to: Spirituality: It’s only human

John Desclin's Avatar Jump to comment 25 by John Desclin

allow me to blaspheme (well, some may think this to be the case...) to me, spirituality is a matter of endorphins and of oxytocin, which I do not find disparaging ;)

Go to: 20 Christian Academics Speaking About God

Well, they believe because they were brought up and indoctrinated that way. That's a complete waste of time to listen to them: all old hats!

Go to: No room for inaccuracy in the brain

John Desclin's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by John Desclin

It's a pity that the reference (Neuron) is not given in full. After searching on medline, I could find an article by Dr E.R. in Neuron, dated earlier this year. It tells us about experiments made on tadpoles. It certainly is interesting, but the report made by Medical Press seems to me a lot of hyperbole.

Go to: Science and religion: God didn't make man; man made gods

I am somewhat disappointed by this. I found it quite commonplace. Moreover, to talk about "a world that makes sense" does not smack of science. Humans create sense, which is not quite the same (at least for scientists, IMHO)

I am afraid this post does not tell us much!
