Unconscious Learning Underlies Belief in God

Unconscious Learning Underlies Belief in God - انسان ها به صورت ناخودآگاه خداباوری را یاد می گیرند

Individuals who can unconsciously predict complex patterns, an ability called implicit pattern learning, are likely to hold stronger beliefs that there is a god who creates patterns of events in the universe.

Their research, reported in the journal Nature Communications, is the first to use implicit pattern learning to investigate religious belief. The study spanned two very different cultural and religious groups, one in the U.S. and one in Afghanistan.
