What will happen to this person after death? If he totally believed in God before the surgery will God understand his dilemma and forgive him? I hope for the guy in question that God is a neuroscientist.
I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

But the thing is, God is love, and because love exists it is impossible not to believe in God since love is God and God is love, and therefore both brains will go to heaven.edit on 30-8-2011 by arpgme because: (no reason given)

Most people, including myself, can't consciously choose what to belief. It's a compulsion based on the facts we see around us, and the reasoning skills we're capable of, along with preconceived gestures influencing our perceptions.
I can't just 'choose' to believe in god. I could pretend to, but I couldn't force that the click in my psyche. So, I find it truely contradicting for a benevolent being to punish or reward me over something I can't control.
This is relevant mostly to some of the posts in response, but also to the guy at hand. His brains doing the same thing, just with the two sides in dissonance with each other. My question is, if 'god' can understand his problem, why couldn't he understand the rest of ours?
