Dr. Zach says that his research shows that oxytocin levels rise in the brain when trust exists. Has he done any research into how they drop when trust is destroyed or at least, seriously damaged?
Trust is essential to any human inter-relationship, including with the Great Holy. But we all know instances where someone's faith is shattered, or at least, seriously damaged, by some incident which the majority culture calls "an act of God". It would be interesting to see how oxytocin levels differ in people of absolute faith from those who are, say, atheistic, particularly if those in each group have been thru similar faith-shattering incidents & the atheism occurred after the incident.
The same could be researched in romantic relationships, or those where a parent abuses 1 or more children in a family.
