Seeing the general interest in God and religion on the forums this might interest some people.

PBS will broadcast God on the Brain, which is described as "An examination of neurotheology, the study of the relationship between religious experiences and the functioning of the brain".

It's being broadcast at 9:00 PM CST. Please check your local PBS stations.

I'll look for it...

I think it's really interesting that people get so much from their beliefs and the rituals of religion.

Faith and neurons....what a concept grin

There's been a study done on a group of graduate students where there temporal lobes were electrically stimulated. This produced out of body experience, religious emotions, and experiences not unlike those described by people claiming alien abduction.

This could explain the predilection of certain people to religion.

It might be in Canada. I'm not sure where in Canada she is. Perhaps a terrestrial signal from a US station could be picked up?
