Belief in God programmed in Brain

Belief in ‘God’ is programmed in our brains


Old news but current. Back in 2009 a scientific study had shown that the belief in ‘God’ or supernatural force that is above everything is programmed in different parts of our brain. This is important because such a belief does not exist in animals which makes it a strange addition to evolution.

That’s why there are divided opinions amongst scientists whether religious belief has a biological basis or not. Followers of Darwin’s theory suggest that this center of the brain was evolved because the belief in the Divine can help you survive in difficult circumstances when you cannot do anything else.

What makes this discovery important is when we correlate it to the hypothesis that humans were created to serve the ‘Gods’. If such a theory has any truth in it, then this scientific study supports it. A programmed brain to believe in ‘Gods’ is the perfect tool to create faithful servants.

Such a strong belief in our minds has created multiple religious divisions in humanity and all of them are supposedly seeking the truth and enlightenment and yet the wars between religions have brought death to millions.
