Washing Away Our Sins -- Literally?
Sept. 7, 2006 — Germs may not be the only things you're washing away at the sink. Washing one's hands may also give the feeling of washing away your sins or cleansing a dirty conscience, reveals a new report in the journal Science.

Physical cleanliness is linked to moral or spiritual cleanliness in religions and cultures worldwide. Scientists have finally put that concept to the test and have found that physical and moral purity are indeed psychologically intertwined — and sometimes even interchangeable.

A person may feel his sins are washed away, by a physical activity but baptismal regeneration as a sacrament is a false idea. q.v.,

As the saying goes "cleanliness is next to Godliness"

Although this idea is nothing new, even Shakespeare knew about this - these "researchers" need to read a little Macbeth

Washing your hands or having a shower is a science now?

Chris,

Unfortunately, Northwestern is a real and well-known university. And 'Science' is the journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The high-falutin' mag. That's what makes this nonscience so sad.

"Liljenquist and her colleagues were inspired to research the phenomenon of the sense of linkage between physical cleanliness and morality after remarking that movie characters almost always showered after committing a heinous crime."

They got their idea from watching the movies? And they saw characters washing the blood off by showering and it was reported in the journal "Science" and therefore...

Pathetic, that that this is called research.
