It's always nice to see scientists bridging the gap between communities by getting science students interested in common spiritual methods and getting people in mindsets less secular to appreciate the validation of experiments. So here is an IONS study in which people from a handful of different faiths used their practiced blessing methods on chocolate ( :P yay! ) and then participants gave self-reports of their enjoyment of the treats.

    I see now that there was a higher purpose to my coming to this site. Obviously, it's my destiny to serve as a subject when they replicate that study.

Stay in touch with IONS
