Prayer

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/18/how-does-prayer-meditation-affect-brain-activity_n_1974621.html?1350588342&icid=maing-grid10%7Chtmlws-main-bb%7Cdl30%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D223366

A doctor has been doing research on prayer.  According to him, the brain changes when religious people pray.  The part of the brain associated with conversation changes when Christians pray to God.  That is because it is how Christians converse with God, in prayer.

The same doctor says that when he does the same test with atheists, the brain does not change. It shows that they are not having a conversation, because they are not communicating with God, since they don't believe in Him.

As a Christian, I don't need a doctor to tell me what I already know.  That God is real and we can talk to Him with prayer.  Still, it is an interesting study.  Another proof of the existence of God.  Still, there will be those who won't believe because their faith is in themselves and not in their Creator; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
