No "God Spot" In the Human Brain

Apparently a recent study has discovered that there is no single "God Spot" in the brain responsible for mystical experiences. Rather, there are several parts of the brain involved.

Okay, well, that isn't terribly interesting in itself. This was interesting, though:
In the study, 15 cloistered Carmelite nuns, ranging in age from 23 to 64, had their brains scanned while asked to relive the most intense mystical experience they had ever had as members of the religious order.
23 year old nuns? I didn't think there were nuns under 60 anymore...
