To be fair though, it probably is different than talking to yourself. It would be more like imagining a conversation with someone else.

interesting though I doubted there would be. why would talking with God be different? it was an interesting idea though.

i didn't find a study that is exactly what you are describing, but it looked at what parts of the brain light up when asked to think about god.

in short. 'There is nothing unique about religious belief in these brain structures,' Professor Grafman said.

'Religion doesn't have a 'God spot' as such, instead it's embedded in a whole range of other belief systems in the brain that we use every day.'
