God Believes the Same Things I Do!

I read about a series of studies in PhysOrg that showed that what a person feels that their deity believes is lined up with what they believe. Not only do they line up, but if yours change, you suddenly have a 'better understanding of god' and now know what he really wants. One study showed that we use the same part of the brain that we use on our own beliefs for god's. It seems our brain knows he is something we made up ourselves, and not a separate being. Now if the brain could just convince the conscious. Many religious will say that the reason is because their beliefs are molded on their god's views. If so, god must have no idea what he wants, because the beliefs of his followers are always changing. Take time to read some of the Digg comments. They are interesting.

Saw this in the comments, and had to include it:

“You can tell you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do” - Anne Lamott
