In God We Trust

A group of Toronto scientists have found the effect God has on a believer's brain. "The more they believe, the less brain activity we see" in the anterior cingulate cortex, a part of the brain that is involved in the experience of anxiety and helps modify behaviour.

So let's sum up : the initial error shuts off the part of the brain used to correct error, making it easier for people to dismiss error, which compounds uncorrected errors, leading back to the initial error in search of relief from the horrors created by all those uncorrected errors.

Well, at least that explains away the atomic bomb.
