93. The only part of this article that compared different beliefs showed
people of different faiths and atheists used the same parts of the brain when dealing with moral issues-

They found that people of different religious persuasions and beliefs, as well as atheists, all tended to use the same electrical circuits in the brain to solve a perceived moral conundrum and the same circuits were used when religiously-inclined people dealt with issues related to God.

Ok maybe these studies show what part of the brain deals with morality but they're trying way to hard to spin this.
