How do Athiesm and Hynosis interact with each other? I've always been told that hypnosis makes you extremely susceptible to suggestions, but that seems to be the anti-thesis of a very important part of Atheism(Assuming the atheist left a religion): Thinking for yourself.
They also say you can't hypnotize someone into doing something they wouldn't normally do(like killing someone), so I'm thinking that maybe, because of that, Athiests wouldn't be so susceptible to suggestions from the hypnotist. Or maybe there's something else at work, because some of the ridiculous things that people do while hypnotized they'd never do while not hypnotized.
Of course, my view is based on my very limited knowledge of the subject, so feel free to correct me. I'd love to see a study based on how Atheism and hypnosis interact.
