How many people here know that a part of the temporal lobe produces intense feelings of spiritual transcendance, combined with a sense of mystical presence when stimulated? Even unreligious people, having had this area stimulated, were able to experience things like being visited by God, or seeing Jesus in a strobe light. Now, is the slow wave seizure over the temporal lobe the cause...or the effect of such an experience? The experiments by Michael Persinger of Laurentian University shows without a doubt that the religious feeling, and related experiments, are simply a by-product of stimulation of part of the temporal lobe by electricity. Of course, if there is a god, wouldn't he give his creation a means by which to perceive him? No, because if this part of the brain was intended to be used to percieve him, it would be to perceive him when he presents himself; His presence was produced artificially by electrical stimulation. What other arguments can be brought for and against the meaning of this discovery?
