Comment Religious Center? (Score 1) 636

I find it hard to believe that there should be a part of the brain evolved to process religion. Just how would nature select for that? I think it more reasonable to believe that religion hijacks that part of the brain, but that it evolved for some other—more mundane—purpose. Question: What, other than Apple products and religion, stimulates that part of the brain? The answer might give us a clue as to what its evolutionary purpose really is, and why it is stimulated by religion and Apple Products.

The changed prices in the iTMS has been a reaction to nothing other than the fact that this was a demand posed by the record companies in exchange for them allowing Apple to provide DRM-free versions of their entire catalogues.
