  1. After reading published studies on this subject I’ve decided that I should start praying to believe in God and, more, do so several times a day. Actually, I will add prayers as if I already believe, so I’ll be thanking God for the day, hoping that God helps me in various situations I’m in and so forth. Someone told me that another way to know God is to read the Bible, something I’ve never done, so I’ll start doing that (1/2 hour a day is what was recommended), maybe even go to Church (there’s a Catholic Church near my home), another thing I’ve never done until recently (as a result of these articles and for other reasons).

    I’ve been an atheist all my life but I think it’s better for my health to become a believer and actually practice my faith. I’ll probably have to eventually convert but I won’t even consider that until this “experiment” on myself yields some ground, that is, until I at least believe in God.

    I don’t know if I can, but I’ll be really trying. I also read that surrounding myself with believers helps, so in addition to going to Church (Mass in this case) I will help in their outreach programs.

    I realize that this will now take up a lot of my time but it seems to be worth it after all.

  2. I would love if you could e-mail to me ‘recongising cognitive biasis’. Your webinar is so interesting. I am living in Ireland but I hope to attend one of your seminrs in America at some stage.
