God, magnets and tin foil hats



Psychologists have discovered it's possible to significantly change a person's beliefs simply by targeting their brain with magnets.
Using what's known as transcranial magnetic stimulation, the researchers were able to temporarily shut down the part of the brain associated with detecting and solving problems.
People who were subjected to this treatment reported that their belief in God dropped by a third following the stimulation, while there was an increase in positive feelings towards immigrants.

So, belief in God not compatible with positive feelings about immigrants?

I think you could be forgiven for making that connection.

Well as an Agnostic I don't feel empathy with the hordes of young men fleeing their country, if that had happened here both in 1914 and 1939 we would be having this converse in German.
