Abstract:

Maybe religion and science are not so far apart, and in the workings of our brains we can find the link to our divine creator. Where ggod lives in the human brain says that we can locate an understanding of God's qualities in the different parts of the brain, each of which leads us to different patterns of thoughts. These thought patterns give us the God who watches over our lives and our holy places, loves us unconditionally and has a master plan for each one of us. This is the God our brains are designed to understand, and understanding our brains can give us a deep connection to the divine.
