comment Do porn and other remotely perceived entertainments work because of Mirror Neurons?
@Ben Brocka, maybe the underlying biological reasons for imagination's stimulation is the same as the mirror neurons'. That doesn't necessarily refute my claim. And what is the controversial part of the mirror neurons?

comment Why are people inclined to praise or fear the unknown?
Steven Jeuris, you changed title from "praise" to "belief" but I want to emphasize this praising/fear inclination rather than believing them as some deities' creations - the latter is the result of the former I presume. Did you watch the video link I gave above? The tribe's first encounter and they immediately praise/fear from that unknown thing - just as when we heard news about CERN: "oh I don't know what it is but it is so coool! But don't play with the nature, you will bring the apocalypse!", feear and/or praise. This is my point, not god/religion/aliens specifically.
