Happy Sunday! I really liked "The Fallacy of the God Gene." In my opinion, this statement really sums up the origins of religion:

The human brain is extraordinarily adept at posing questions, but simply abhors the concept of leaving any unanswered.

Insert an unexplainable explanation of supernatural forces into the unanswered gap, add a healthy dose of fear, credulity, and a few millennia to lend historical credence, and voilà: religion! I mean, I could see searching for the implacable curiosity of the human brain, but religion itself is only an indirect result of this.

And thanks for the mention of my blog post. :D
