The Brain's God Spot Scientists searching for the neural "God spot", which is supposed to control religious belief, believe that there is not just one but several areas of the brain that form the biological foundations of religious belief.

The Myth of Persephone - Greek Goddess of the Underworld by Laura Strong, PhD One of the best known characters in the Slavic genre of folklore and fairytales is the deadly guardian of the Underworld, Baba Yaga. Usually found in the deepest darkest corner of the forest, she is commonly portrayed as a hideous old hag with razor sharp teeth who cannibalistically devours those who naively stumble upon her domain.
