"...an American molecular geneticist has concluded that a person's capacity to believe in God is linked to brain chemicals."

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.

Turn it around. Those with an absence of this gene may be predisposed to a reluctance accepting a higher authority than themselves.

"Buddha, Mohammed and Jesus all shared a series of mystical experiences or alterations in consciousness and thus probably carried the gene," he said.

He forgot the Q.E.D. between the phrases. Or, is that why he used 'thus'?

It's amazing the extremes some will go to justify a lifestyle.

Is Sexual Orientation Fixed at Birth?

"..(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.
