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.

"Showering — a simple everyday activity — is linked to morality in a way we never knew," said study co-author Katie Liljenquist of Northwestern University. ...

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

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.
