"Brain study shows that thinking about God reduces distress -- but only

" "Thinking about religion makes you calm under fire. It makes you less
distressed when you've made an error," says Inzlicht. "We think this can
help us understand some of the really interesting findings about people
who are religious. Although not unequivocal, there is some evidence that
religious people live longer and they tend to be happier and healthier."
Atheists shouldn't despair, though. "We think this can occur with any
meaning system that provides structure and helps people understand their
world." Maybe atheists would do better if they were primed to think
about their own beliefs, he says."
