And that’s not me, it’s science!
For decades, mainline Protestants have been beset by bad news: declining numbers, aging membership, waning cultural influence.A new study from Duke University Medical Center, however, gives these Protestants one reason for cheer: they seem to have larger brains than born-again Christians, Roman Catholics and the religiously unaffiliated.
Sadly the silly people at USA Today don’t know that Protestant, Reformed, and the rest are ‘born again’. More media theological ineptitude. Fortunately, the media people didn’t perform the study.
Anyway, yeah for us! Naturally this also explains why true Christians practice baptism by immersion, attend worship twice on Sunday and on Wednesday night, and have Vacation Bible School in the Summer. They don’t worship images and they don’t call the Lord’s Supper the ‘Eucharist’. They don’t drink wine but grape juice and they don’t eat wafers and call them ‘the body of Christ’. And it’s all because we have bigger brains!
And that’s not just me, that’s science!
