"People often reason egocentrically about others' beliefs, using their own beliefs as an inductive guide. Correlational, experimental, and neuroimaging evidence suggests that people may be even more egocentric when reasoning about a religious agent's beliefs (e.g., God). In both nationally representative and more local samples, people's own beliefs on important social and ethical issues were consistently correlated more strongly with estimates of God's beliefs than with estimates of other people's beliefs (Studies 14). Manipulating people's beliefs similarly influenced estimates of God's beliefs but did not as consistently influence estimates of other people's beliefs (Studies 5 and 6). A final neuroimaging study demonstrated a clear convergence in neural activity when reasoning about one's own beliefs and God's beliefs, but clear divergences when reasoning about another person's beliefs (Study 7). In particular, reasoning about God's beliefs activated areas associated with self-referential thinking more so than did reasoning about another person's beliefs. Believers commonly use inferences about God's beliefs as a moral compass, but that compass appears especially dependent on one's own existing beliefs."

- Put people in an fMRI machine
- Ask them what they think about X, and a certain area of the brain lights up
- Ask them what other people think about X, and a different area lights up
- Ask them what God thinks about X, and it's the first area associated with the self that lights up, not the second. Neurologically, God's will is your will.

This makes sense. Most people have never met their "god" so they can only infer his beliefs based on what they would imagine them to be, or what they were told the beliefs are. It's kind of a weird experiment to begin with, though. Dubious value, at best. I wouldn't go so far as to say that the experiment somehow proves God is a psychological construct. There are much better ways to do that.

It does kind of disprove the whole "personal relationship with Jesus" thing though, dunnit?

clearly jeebus is a part of us and he resides in the self-referential reasoning department of our brains as proven in this study

I just always want to know if people take the bible/Koran/tora as literal or allegory. Sometimes people pick and choose. They don't like the stuff able stoning people or slavery etc but like the parts about reserrection and miracles, all based on people who had no idea what lightning is. People say that tell me about a person in a fox hole who doesn't believe in God. I ask, tell me of a person who doesn't believe in an mri that was saved by science.
