"  My conclusion will always be that a breeding war will not help. Even if having kids guaranteed creation of more people with the same values (which it doesn't), it will still increase overpopulation and environmental problems.   I…"

"I really don't think it's genetics at all. Both of my parents are highly religious--and most atheists I know have religious parents. The reason why I am atheist is because I found evidence, not because I'm genetically predisposed…"

"I have my doubts on us ever demonstrating any 'religion gene', no more than we'll ever find a "gay gene". Being brainwashed can occur to anyone, especially at a young age. Intelligence has very little to do with…"

Spirituality in the Gene Pool

I've gotten into alot of research regarding the origins of human religious and spiritual beliefs recently Things point strongly to the idea that our openness to accepting belief structures like religions and afterlives/souls is evolutionary. The odds of turning out religious are contained in our genetics. Obviously logic, rationality, etc. play huge roles, but our tendency to be rational is inherited as well. Does anyone in here struggle with the idea of not reproducing while Christians…See More

"Oh, thanks for the update! I just found the article today and didn't see any follow-up articles regarding it. I'll try to research a bit more before I complain too much next time."

Loren Miller commented on Gabe Watson's blog post Bullying is okay if it's morally guided?
"Actually, there was an outcry in the wake of that bill and as a result, the "sincere religious or moral stance" argument has been REMOVED from the bill.More here."

Bullying is okay if it's morally guided?

Michigan passed a Bill earlier this month stating that bullying in school is now acceptable "if their act of harassment on another young person was done because of 'deep moral conviction' or 'religious belief.' On another article about this, a teacher posted that "I had one kid say to me 'Well my Mom and Preacher say that being gay is a sin so I am not sitting next to this filthy homo.'" And this can't be punished or corrected. As someone going into education, this is a scary thing. I don't…See More
