We like to think we make voting decisions based on logical, rational reasoning. But new research suggests that our subconscious reactions to the faces of candidates may play a substantial role in shaping how we vote.

Psychology is now doing the kind of research suggested by pneumatologists, like me, long ago.
Recent research has come up with evidence of phenomena that: The human brain is more than just a mechanism for logical, rational reasoning. It seems that we are pneumatoligical (spiritual) beings who happen to have minds (psyches) and somas (bodies).
Dr. Carl Jung, MD became well known as psychiatrist and colleague of his older mentor, Sigmund Freud.
Sigmund Freud ( a materialist and atheist) expected Jung to succeed him as the leader of the school of psychoanalysis. But in the process of treating patients he, the son of a Swiss minister, became a mystic and spoke of the human ability to "know God" without having to have physical evidence.
Perhaps this new evidence mentioned above will now prompt us to take mysticism seriously.
BTW, here is the famous BBC-TV interview in which Jung was asked if he believed in God. Listen to his response:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJ25Ai__FYU
