Your Brain, Is An Amazing Thing

There are many things that our brains do for us, many more we are yet to discover. One thing is certain. It is capable of far more than we give it credit for, often enough giving credit to gods instead of the gray matter between our ears.

If you’ve read much of my blog posts you’ll know that I think that all our answers are in our brains or will be derived from brain activity which is verified in the outside world.

Here are a couple of videos. They are long, so here’s a night about human brains which sounds like a great Halloween title, but this is is nothing of the kind. This is the real stuff. Where’s the beef?! Here it is baby. We’re learning more each day about our brains so you had better get used to hearing more and more about what makes you tick.

Go to YouTube and get some more Pinker goodness.

Yes, one guy talking about talking is awesome, but why don’t you show us some really good talk about brains.
Ok, you asked for it.

Yes, it’s going to eat up a few hours of your life to watch all that. Go on. Do it. It’s good for you.

Do comment to let me know what you think.

For me one thing that says religion and belief in gods is wrong is what we already know about the brain. There is so much that points to the fact that the more we pretend to believe a lie, the more real that lie becomes. That is why it is so important for religions to get inside your head at a very early  age. They know they are helping to form life long neural pathways that you will have to fight hard to get rid of. I really don’t know how to think of that except to say that it is evil, if there is such a thing.
