Passing on the God Gene

You know, I know the science is borderline, that genetics is complex and that there's free will involved and the whole area says nothing about the existence of God. But I do like the whole concept of a "God gene".

By enabling humans to perceive meaning in adversity, and a sense of optimism, it's posited that the " God gene" gives religious believers a slight evolutionary advantage.

So don't waste your time arguing with Darwinian atheists. Just rejoice. We have better genes.


  1. He has set eternity in the human heart.

  2. But we are just as optimistic, except when we get grouchy, but that's an age thing...

  3. Oh, to hell with it - we're all doomed I tell you, doomed...
