Did Evolution play a part in making people beleive in god so easily?

I was just wondering. Now that I Think about skepticism doesn't seem to be common sense. And I know a lot of gullible people. it would make sense, and I guess it'll mean religious people aren't necessarily stupid. just really impressionable.

thanks for your input. I didn't mean to give the impression that I think religious people are stupid. I was just having a conversation with a friend of mine today and he was talking about genesis and how many holes in it. And he thinks that only people that lack critical thinking skills could possibly believe in the bible. but I watched a video on this subject on Youtube, Which made me want to know if other people thought this way as well. My fathers pretty intelligent and he's a devout christian. 

Consider, if you will a deranged, delusional, hallucinating madman who, when you fail to accept his rants, murders you.  Your genes, for reason, logic, and sanity are being removed from the gene pool while he continues to reproduce.  Now, do this over thousand's of years, and evolution suggests that reason, logic, and sanity will be reduced in the population, and deranged, delusional, hallucinating madmen will increase.
