Empathy may be the formation of hypotheses in response to emotional stimuli that
manifest themselves in structures connected with emotion.  Hypotheses of this
type may be a primitive ability which may increase group cohesiveness.
Hypotheses of this type may be the bases of religion as opposed to hypotheses
generated by the advanced forebrain.  These two types of ability to form
hypotheses may separate religion (emotion) from science.
