Finding God in the Brain

I found this through a link on Marko's post on Astrology. Wordpress had suggested it, I think. But whoev suggested it, it was an interesting read.

The information about the neurological studies of seizures experienced by those undergoing religious "ecstasy" and frontal lobe activity while speaking in tongues opens up a whole NEW area of exploration. As someone who grew up around folks with a lot of faith and folks who SAID they had a lot of faith, but were really in that building three times every week for their own reasons... I will be very interested to see where these studies lead.

But how DO you quantify faith?
