Here's a report in the Sydney Morning Herald that asks "Are we hard-wired for God?" or at least for believing.
It comes from a global study "Explaining Religion" based in Oxford. This piece reports on three aspects of the report: (i) evolution of belief in the supernatural, (ii) the religious instinct, and (iii) the cognitive appeal of faith.
And there's more to come from this study next week (in the SMH) and perhaps here.
(Note that this report was referred to in the previous blog)
Perhaps we are hard wired for God by God, not by genes memes etc coming from some nothingness that occurred prior to "THE BIG BANG"
