Am I reading this correctly?

So when a non-religious person affirms a belief regarding a religious concept (e.g. God is a myth), they light up the same brain regions (related to " emotion, self-representation, and cognitive conflict") as a Christian person, who affirms their belief (e.g. God is real)?

If I am reading this correctly, I'd say it's an interesting finding - both sides of the "debate" should keep it in mind, I think...
