The God Spot           [weird science news]

The human brain does not contain a single "God spot" responsible for mystical and religious experiences, a new study finds.
    Instead, the sense of union with God or something greater than the self often described by those who have undergone such experiences involves the recruitment and activation of a variety [of] brain regions normally implicated in different functions such as self-consciousness, emotion and body representation.
    The finding, detailed in the current issue of Neuroscience Letters, contradicts previous suggestions by other researchers that the there might be a specific region in the brain designed for communication with God.

There's not a specific wigit for the Lord?
there's not (you say) a God Spot in the noodle?
perhaps if Adam's apple could be cored
you'd find therein a kind of Yankee doodle
while in the kidney one were apt to see
the signature of Mr. Poetry?
and in the heart one likely could deduce
a mark suggesing Love were on the loose
