Remember Carl Sagan's book "The Dragons of Eden"? If I recall he was one of the first people - I won't say scientist - to propose a brain hardwired for religion.
At one time I was quite enthralled with CS, and paid good money to attend one of his lectures at Carnegie Hall in Pittsburgh. I even dressed in beige slacks and a brown cordoroy jacket with leather elbow patches.
Boy, was THAT 35 bucks down the terlit, Not to mention the cost of the clothes! Although when I walked around smoking my pipe I have to admit the outfit WAS quite a babe magnet. Of course that's before it was "out" to smoke a pipe.
Oh and I had LOTS more hair.
