13. Yes but I'm looking for a direct historical religious correlation, according to this paragraph,
only 8 out of 10 were affected and the one mentioned notable exception wasn't religious. So I'm hypothesizing that for religious people those times of heavy magnetic field fluctuation would be particularly intense with the result of an up or down swing in religious, fundamentalist or evangelical fervor throughout the world's various societies.

"Dr Persinger said that about eight in every 10 volunteers report quasi-religious feelings when wearing his helmet. However, when Professor Richard Dawkins, an evolutionist and renowned atheist, wore it during the making of a BBC documentary, he famously failed to find God, saying that the helmet only affected his breathing and his limbs."
