Did anyone see this programme at 9pm last night. It was presented by a clinical psychologist, who looked into different people who were religious in British society.
How a preacher on Oxford St was looked on as mad, yet nuns in the same locality who locked themselves away were not looked at in the same way. Yet in can be said that these nuns really display abnormal behaviour, yet us as a society see them different.
It also challenged the concept of God, but came from a perspective that a belief in the supernatural is a benefit to us as human beings. They showed the brain scan of a pentecostal pastor speaking in tongues and showed how the patterns were different whilst he was doing this.
I found it very interesting coming from my agnostic point of view.
Did anyone else see it?
