I thought about posting this.

Could it be true, reading the bible, in all it's codes activates brainregions that weren't used before? Or does that just happen growing up?

It might work for some people, same way mantras do for others.

I highly doubt it.

The whole brain is used. The bit about us using 10% of our brain is a myth.

There are probably certain regions that are more active when people think about spiritual ideas.

Well an 8 week course in mindful meditation is proven to change the brains structure, so it wouldn't surprise me If reading the gospels has an effect on neuro plasticity of the brain.

There is no such thing as an "unused brain region." Every part of the brain is used.

Pornography also activates regions that aren't in constant use.
Just sayin'!

Just like every part of a fat lazy slobs body is used, one could say... It's all there, but is it in good shape??

Personally I have noticed that something wise beyond the literal ego meaning is hidden in many writings.. The Bible, Shakespeare, Koran, many hidden codes understood in more of a subconscious way..

I very much have a feeling similar to meditation as the wisdom hits some layer below me that I can't quite see, until it bursts forth. Some texts are like an equation that can't be solved linearly.. Calculus speaks to this, and yet people think in lines even though advanced math doesn't.. Some of these things follow curves and greater than cubed expressions.. Meaning above 3D understanding..

YES it does change your brain. Simple answer.

I've heard that religious and spiritual materials (mantra, prayer, ritual, ceremony) activate elements of the lower—lizard—brain more frequently. I know for sure that the limbic system, which helps formulate memories and control emotions, is directly tied to religious experiences. None of these elements of the brain, however, are unused during regular life. The whole brain is active, at different periods, depending on what we're doing. What this really says, to me, is that religious experiences are not external, but internally controlled. They are projections of the mind, not actual separate beings.

Ah yes, I've heard of our brain having a smaller part that being some kind of reptillian.

Something makes much sense suddenly
..

It may be so that it is not.
