I just read this the other day. Very interesting. I especially like this quote:
It may turn out that the brain treats religious faith as its own special category of belief unlike ethics and math.

Ya think? You mean...believers brainwash their selves...???????

Thanks for the comments guys.

Yea, there is definitely a fundamental difference between beliefs like faith, and knowledge like quantifiable, testable, and falsifiable ethics and math.

Facts are things that you don't come to believe through desire or wishing.
