Billy Joel sang that he once believed in causes too and had a pointless point of view..
And then magnets came along.
If we are to believe this study that even a British rag called ‘bizarre’ then we will have to conclude this:
Using a technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), researchers safely shut down certain groups of neurones in the brains of volunteers.
TMS, which is used to treat depression, involves placing a large electromagnetic coil against the scalp which creates electric currents that stimulate nerve cells in the region of the brain involved in mood control.
Researchers found the technique radically altered religious perceptions and prejudice.
Belief in God was reduced almost by a third, while participants became 28.5 per cent less bothered by immigration numbers.
How long until the Republican and Democratic campaign committees begin employing magnet power at conventions or rallies?
