Hmmmmmmm. And all this time I thought it was faith?
I guess I still do.
So does that mean there is an atheist gene too? And what about people who are atheists and later in life become religious? Does this mean they underwent a genetic change? Inquiring minds want to know.
At least this would explain how people believe in crack pot theories outside the mainstream or even rational. They have a hard-wired need to believe.
ehhh I have gas....
Turn it around. Those with an absence of this gene may be predisposed to a reluctance accepting a higher authority than themselves.
It's amazing the extremes some will go to justify a lifestyle.
Bunk. But can we use it to get special rights? :)
"..(1) From Dr. Dean Hamer, the "gay gene" researcher, and himself a gay man:
"Genes are hardware...the data of life's experiences are processed through the sexual software into the circuits of identity. I suspect the sexual software is a mixture of both genes and environment, in much the same way the software of a computer is a mixture of what's installed at the factory and what's added by the user." .."
Oh, brother. One more kooky theory from the same guy who brought us the gay gene. I think he's got some kind of gene that gives him a stubborn ability to come to bizarre conclusions based on flimsy evidence. He needs a transfusion of common sense.
Simple pedigree studies - conducted for centuries past - would have shown this by now if it were true.
It sounds to me as if there are some people who are making science into a religion.
Ooooo... You may be on to something here!
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, WEB
The good doctor is a fool.
