    Now more than ever geneticists need to erase this gene.

    sigh, the Human Genome Project has been mapped, there is no such thing as a 'religiosity gene', which predisposes a person towards a particular religious point of view. Same as the mythical gay gene which is supposed to predispose someone towards a particular so called 'sexual orientation', its just a nonsense, it does not exist! pure tooth fairy!. When will you people stop using pseudo science to politicise your issues. I take it this was intended as a joke, if not, its simply another failure of the materialist to try to explain elements which are not explained merely by observing the material universe.

    Look at this, quoted from the article

    Previous research has suggested that a genetic predisposition toward religion is tied to a variety of characteristics such as conservatism, obedience to authority, and the inclination to follow rituals,

    considering i am socialist by nature, have made a career of arguing with authority and the only ritual i tend to follow is trying to get up in the moring, i think we can safely shelve this to the nether regions of the science forum, where postulation and dogma are rife, and where plausibility, rather than truth, rules as king!

    haha, genetics, the materialists panacea for all! All hail the God of Science!

    I actually wouldn't know, if there is, or is not a gene for homosexuality..... but it doesn't matter, because full blown homosexuality is a condition accompanying the child at birth (they have no say in it)

    The condition exists because of the persons karma from past lives.

    Don't worry, society will do its best during the coming Tribulation to remove all those bothersome Christians from the planet.

    The Antichrist will make Hitler seem like an amateur. Don't you worry, the Christian Holocaust is coming.

    The anti Christ is already amongst us.

    Every person who upholds false teachings and presents error as truth are the anti-Christ.

    That would mean Christians who support the error in the Bible are themselves the anti Christ.

    Isn't that ironic..........the Christians themselves are the anti-Christ.

    This is true because what is the anti-Christ?.......it is any person, place or thing, that is against what Jesus stands for, and the error in the Bible goes directly against the true teachings of Jesus which the Bible does not present.

    The true teachings of Jesus have been excluded from the Bible, and in place of those, are substitute teachings which have been put there to support error.

    The error has been put there to support the superstitious fabricated teachings of the Old Testament.

    Remove the error and you will no longer be the anti-Christ.

    Christian Holocaust? Is coming?

    I've heard that more Christians have been murdered during the last hundred years than the previous 20 centuries combined.

    Do you think there will be a pogrom of sorts in the future?

    And if that is the case, why have we not heard from your purported god? It would seem to me the last 100 years have been arguably the most evil years of the last 2000. So why did your god supposedly appear then but now when christians need it the most, it never shows up? Sounds like a fair weather god to me.

    Did they actually claim the existence of a gene, or is the fact that it is in quotes a hint that they are really talking about the sets of genes that predispose someone towards religiosity?
    I think there is fairly conclusive evidence that predisposition to homosexuality does exist in genes.

    It is my belief that poverty and lack of education have a far greater effect on reproduction worldwide, so one could argue that 'stupid' genes are going to dominate society - but then again both poverty and education have more to do with location and inherited culture and wealth (or lack thereof) than with intelligence derived from genes.

    Just go away and read the article, for goodness sake! What you think is practically irrelevant, we are interested in science not pseudo science used for the sole purpose of politicising views of what you think, might, maybe, could be, possibility that or seems to be the case! There is no such thing as a religiosity gene nor the so called gay gene, so just stop pretending there is. When will you materialists face up to the truth, spirituality is out with the realms of your attempts to reduce it to purely physical elements!

    So you do have abandoned the pseudo-science creationism for the science of evolution?
    Wow! Good for you!
    I didn't expect that, but you have actually learned something lately!

    please note the title of this thread,

    Religiosity gene responsible for world population,

    it may help you in your endeavour to post something with relevance!

    I commented a line from you. If that is out-of-line, then you shouldn't have wrote that.

    You cannot define science and pseudo-science at your opinion. If I quote your words: "What you think is practically irrelevant". Correct. What you think is practically irrelevant. So don't go and call pseudo-science science and science pseuodo-science. Because if you do, then you are totally out-of-line.

    I thought you actually have learned something. Was I wrong?
