What is Neurotheology?

Eric replied:

Hi, Brian —

According to Wikipedia, Neurotheology, also known as spiritual neuroscience, is the study of correlations of neural phenomena with subjective experiences of spirituality and hypotheses to explain these phenomena.

Proponents of neurotheology claim that there is a neurological and evolutionary basis for subjective experiences traditionally categorized as spiritual or religious. The discipline studies the cognitive neuroscience of religious experience and spirituality.

For more details go to <Neurotheology>.

Beyond that, I can't provide any more information.

Mary Ann replied:

Just to add to what Eric said,

In other words, it is not a theology at all, but an attempt to deconstruct theology by materialistic determinism and rationalism.
