Would be interested to know if anyone has watched this and what they thought. Especially on the experiment where someone was "programmed" to have a religious experience (where they were in no way religious).

I love this guy's stuff. He really shows how malleable and manipulable our minds are.

I thought the first part of these specials was the best (medical conditions and placebos) but not relevant to this board unfortunately.

It has been a few weeks since I saw this show, and I keep thinking about. Is religious belief something that we are programmed with i.e. are we hardwired to accept belief of the extraordinary?
