Mind Links - Advertising and Religion

Actual, factual content is on the way but until then, enjoy these two stories from Mind Hacks:

Towards a neuropsychology of religion focuses on Pascal Boyer's essay in Nature in which he explores the cognitive restraints on religion and how the need for spiritual belief may have come from the way our brains evolved.

Then they discuss advertising statistics and how they're all a load of crap. Millie would be proud.

EDIT: This just in: Dumbass Creationists try to use neuroscience to prove that souls exist.
