Shutting Down the Part of the Frontal Cortex That Prevents Irrationality

Scientists claim they can change your belief on immigrants and God – with MAGNETS

"A bizarre experiment claims to be able to make Christians no longer believe in God and make Britons open their arms to migrants in experiments some may find a threat to their values.

Scientists looked at how the brain resolves abstract ideological problems.

Using a technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), researchers safely shut down certain groups of neurones in the brains of volunteers.

TMS, which is used to treat depression, involves placing a large electromagnetic coil against the scalp which creates electric currents that stimulate nerve cells in the region of the brain involved in mood control.

Researchers found the technique radically altered religious perceptions and prejudice.

Belief in God was reduced almost by a third, while participants became 28.5 per cent less bothered by immigration numbers."
My nomination for Best comment:
So this study proves that by blocking a persons ability to think critically and reason, they stop believing in God and accept things that are obviously going to harm them. Brilliant. Think about it for a minute, its a liberal making machine, and to make it work, you have to shut down a part of the brain!"
What sort of person would allow his brain to be assaulted in this manner? I'm thinking proto-Atheist.
