Religion and the Temporal Lobe

The BBC recently aired a documentary about how faith can be swayed by the activity residing in the temporal lobe, a center for brain activity; one most commonly paired with certain epileptic activity.

Scientists have debated for years about the role of the temporal lobe on religious activity; one noted change is the correlations between heavy drug/alcohol usage and increased religious activity afterwards. (George W. Bush is one person who springs to mind; spare the jokes, they already have been made.)

(Ironically a majority of conservatives have dealt with heavy drug usage in the past , and currently continue to do so as a side note.)
