Put your faith to work for science

Postby Fadl » Wed Nov 09, 2011 6:14 am


At the following link: https://somapps.med.upenn.edu/neuro_t/

you can participate in a survey that is part of important research into an emerging specialization in neurology called neurotheology. Out of this branch of science there has been accumulated a considerable amount of evidence suggesting that prayer, meditation, involvement in religious communities and activities have an effect on the various regions of the brain which result in many healthful changes in the mental and physical health of the individual. As Baha'is we are naturally not surprised by these findings, but since our faith gives so much importance to science and learning, I thought it would be wonderful if Baha'is participated and shared their religious experience to help the researchers gain further scientific insights into the spiritual.

Please participate, and also share the link with any other English speaking individuals who you feel might also be interested!
