It shouldn’t be surprising that we find humans hard-wired for religious experiences, after all, humans have been practicing ritualistic activities for tens of thousands of years. These rituals often involved consuming psychoactive drugs to heighten ones spiritual experience. If you imagine yourself in the distant past with all your relatives surrounding a campfire smoking peyote (or whichever way it’s consumed) and altering states of consciousness, you’d undoubtedly conclude communication with spirits or gods. This is one of the main reasons we say God is a product of mans imagination – that it’s all in your head.Garth said:But why should this neurological feature exist? Merely as an evolutionary adaptation that aids survival of the species? Or, like the other senses, has it evolved because the spiritual is a real feature of the natural universe? So the 'God Spot' has evolved to 'receive God', just as eyes have evolved to receive light, ears to receive sound, and so on.
