With Jesus our ancestor in Middle East could experience a physical manifestation of God through Jesus miracles.
Now 2000 years later we are talking about a physical manifestation of God in our brain.
I saw two videos:
- The Ted seminar “This is Your Brain on God | Michael Ferguson | TEDxSaltLakeCity“
- Morgan Freemans “The story of God“. starting at 1:35:26
This video is now blocked in Youtube because of copyrighted NG material
I will focus this post on what was said in these two youtubes.
This part is based on the Ted seminar “This is Your Brain on God | Michael Ferguson | TEDxSaltLakeCity”
Michael Fergusson is a Neuroscientist in cognitive neurology at Harvard Medical School.
Neuro Spiritual System
FMRI were made with Christian believers lieke.g. Pope Francis.
They were asked to press a button when they had a Spiritual experience of God. In those moments three areas were activated:
- Frontal Attention regions,
- The Nucleus accumbens
- and the Medial prefrontal cortex.
the scientists call it the neuro spiritual system
Michael Ferguson made this nice observation:
“when Jesus describes heavenly rewards,
neuroscientsts are illuminating the biological embodiment of these ancient metaphor”
Physical manifestations of God
Morgan *Freeman met Andy Newberg a neurotheology neuroscientist in Philadelphia who studies what happens in our brain when we have religious experiences.
I am personally skeptic in considering the neuro scans to be a proof of a divine presence or a God manifestation.
I would rather prefer to say that those MRT scans show the brain reacts on divine belief and divine experiences. But that is just my hypothesis.
God has however the power to “play” with Quantum physics rules , like Jesus did once as God is in my belief, the Creator of these. God is therefore able to show up in any kind of incarnations (Avathars) or any other way.
You may look at this interview with Andrew where he share his opinion about the “conflict” between religion and “Science”. He makes a good effort to solve that millennial conflict many humans have. To bring peace in this “conflict” has been my effort long time now . My last effort ended up describing a new “theoscientific” Creation view in the “Enlightened Genesis“.
