Please provide a link to an empirical, peer reviewed, scientific study proving that religion is an infection.what if we could 'cure' religion like we cure other infections... should we? What if the infected individuals don't want to be cured? Very interesting times.
I don't want a link to a description of what a meme is, nor do I want you to explain what the concept is. I know both of these things already.
I am also aware of studies showing that a religious experience can be created by stimulating certain regions of the brain with electical impulses (for the record, I have never had a "religious experience" either in church or in a lab).
I want a link that shows a legitimate and recognized study proving empirically that religion is an infection that alters the mind.
