Mixing Memories

Mixing Memories has an interesting post, that I just picked up on, concerning Religious Schemas.

The two examples of similarities between religious concepts and nonreligious concepts illustrate one of the most striking types of similarity: the athropomorphization of God concepts. People seem to have a strong tendency to attribute anthropomorphic attributes to God in religious contexts that are inconsistent with their theological representations of God.

The post also has a link to an interesting table from a study by Barret & Kell. Yikes! Most of my answers would be in the 0.0% of respondents quite a bit.
