'Religion doesn't have a 'God spot' as such, instead it's embedded in a whole range of other belief systems in the brain that we use every day.'
It is my hope that this 'scientific evidence' will in turn influence contemporary understandings of religion from theological, socio-political and anthropological perspectives. Religion informs, and is informed by, a complex web of beliefs, commitments, relationships and ways of being-in-the-world. To segregate religion as an autonomous sphere of hocus-pocus disingenuously flattens our experience of the divine.
