The Power of Suggestion...

Good day to all!  I felt I really should share this here, as it's really quite fascinating.

British mentalist and skeptic/atheist Derren Brown creates a synthetic and quite powerful religious experience for an atheist/scientist/skeptic using purely psychological and suggestive means.  This is truly quite an interesting bit of insight to how religion works...and how we can be manipulated into thinking artificial experiences to be truly supernatural.

Trust me when I tell you, it's worth the ~45 minutes of your time.  If you're like me and you're godless but fascinated by religion and its effects on people, you really must see this.
