  1. Interesting piece from Freedom Builders. I mostly agree. I think if I had to go back to school I would study psychology with an emphasis on how religious beliefs influence the brain and the entire cognitive process.

    Perhaps it would explain the man driving an older style Jeep I passed today. It had a confederate flag flapping from the antenna, an entire side window painted with a confederate flag, and big red white and blue letters in the back window spelling "Merica". I sh&$ you not.

    1. Agi Tater -- Gaaaah! Jeep Man sounds like a nightmare come to life! In my home town here in Pennsylvania, I've seen three houses so far with Confederate flags, not to mention vehicles with the flag ... which is weird because Pennsylvania was not a member of the Confederacy. Some people are just clueless.

      The neurobiology of faith would make for fascinating study.
