Yup. You're Just Plain DUMBER!

Well, here's more "science" to prove something!!

The study, which examined the hippocampus region of the brain, found that Protestants who did not have a “born again” experience had significantly more gray matter than either those who reported a life-changing religious experience, Catholics, or unaffiliated older adults.

The study, funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Templeton Foundation, included at least twoMRI measurements of the hippocampus region of 268 adults between 1994 and 2005.

You're prolly too dumb to formulate a question, so this class is over.

Here's the paper. What, you don't bold-face the Templeton Foundation, the group that's always trying (but failing) to find evidence to bolster religion?

I'm having trouble finding any meaning at all in this "study". More gray matter? So?

Go ahead, read about the function of the hippocampus.

And? More "gray matter" there means? Come on. You can do it. I'm sure you have much more gray matter than my "born again" brain and 152 IQ has.

Bite me with your inferences. We're not f-ing stupid, no matter what the "elites" might think. They may have a "bigger" memory, but they only seem to remember $#it that ain't true. And they're really good at making the same steamin' pile up as they go.

Ain't science grand? A pair of research assistants find a correlation between religious beliefs the shrinkage of a part of the brain. Let the science proceed. Maybe someone will explain the correlation some day.

Me? I don't need to use 'f' and 's' words to defend my beliefs.
