Religious Brain

The cortexes in the brains of religious people are thicker than those in non believers. The Columbia University study claims that this effect protects against depression as well. God's will or placebo effect? I guess your answer would depend on the thickness of your cortex.

Religion is the last bastion of fools who submit to the faith in others who preach, write, and tell them what to believe and how to think. "We interpreted it for you from ancient ages ago .. COMPLY .. resistance is futile"

And don't forget to keep those checks and money orders (yes, we'll even take cash) rolling in!

Hallelujah!

Can I get an "Amen!"?

Yeah, you keep thinning that cortex, guys! 😝

Maybe the thicker cortex develops to protect their brains from harsh things like reality and facts. 😊

Sounds like cases of cortex-envy.

Note that they referred to the thickness of the cortex and not its size. The old insult "thickheaded" could have been coined by grave-robbing med students of yore.
