Be your own guru
We are Homo sapien sapiens. Sapient - having or showing great wisdom or sound judgment. You seem to feel that 'Sapient' means a fool... an otherwise religious species. If belief in god(s) is truly an evolved human universal, ..
“By contrast, disbelief is generally the result of deliberate, effortful work against our natural cognitive dispositions — hardly the easiest ideology to propagate.” .. assuming that atheism leaves an indelible stamp of immorality even on people’s faces ..
I have now accepted that the experiments in our initial Science paper were fatally flawed, the results no more than false positives.
Religion is no less an evolutionary product than is a raptor or a ribosome, .. The seemingly bizarre religious rituals that many deride as irrational may in fact be cultural evolutionary tricks that help create cooperative societies.
.. religions may have survived and thrived in part because they served an evolutionary purpose. .. atheist can have a more mature, scientifically literate, and fulfilling relationship with religion if we are open to the possibility that it doesn’t poison everything.
Which fool says that? 'Religious species', then we should have been named Homo religiosa.
Do you think believing without evidence is a better option. You forget that I loaned you USD 1000. When are you going to repay me?
It is the religious who think that by worshiping this God or that, they will get immortal life in heaven.
Ara Norenzayan is a psychologist. Why the article writer had to mention this if the results were fatally flawed and no more than false positives?
You did not tell us about the qualifications of the article writer?
I agree to that. Ideas about religion, tribe are unifying. See for example, the Al-Qaeda or Islamic State. Conflict between Sunnies and Houthis in Yamen. Or Iran or Iraq. Or the Shia Hazaras of Afghanistan and Gilgit and their Sunni neighbors. Or the Christian Kukis and the Hindu Meteis of India. Or the Sunnis and Yezdis of Iraq. How many should I mentrion. Don't forget Africa.
Religions do not serve any evolutionary purpose. Even without religion, we will mate and produce offsprings.
Religion is a poison in many cases if not all. Atheist do not need any relationship with religion.
@sun rise , I am disappointed by your selection of such a worthless article to post in this forum.
