Sounds right to me.
"It's important to note this doesn't imply a belief in the supernatural is caused by brain damage; epistemology - or the act of forming a belief - involves a rich mix of neurological processes that cannot be limited to any single piece of brain tissue."
The study is inconclusive.
The truth is the spirit and brain matter are mutually exclusive. While the body, soul and spirit are inextricably linked, only the death of the body can separate the spirit and soul from the body, but an unregenerate spirit keeps one separated from God.

Don't take it personal Ghost, it's not meant as an insult. It has to be said. It's a matter of life and death.
Don't worry sir, I don't take your poor reasoning personally.
An atheist doesn't believe in God because they are unconvinced of His existence. An atheist doesn't became an atheist out of fear of something he doesn't believe in. That's just silly. - This of course has been explained to you numerous times and no doubt will require doing so again in the future.
Please don't take the above personally. It has to be said. It's a matter of intellectual growth.
