Somehow, I don’t think Dobson, Falwell, et. al. will like this story: ‘God gene’ discovered by scientist behind gay DNA theory. (News-Telegraph):

Religious belief is determined by a person’s genetic make-up according to a study by a leading scientist.

After comparing more than 2,000 DNA samples, an American molecular geneticist has concluded that a person’s capacity to believe in God is linked to brain chemicals.

His findings were criticised last night by leading clerics, who challenge the existence of a “god gene” and say that the research undermines a fundamental tenet of faith – that spiritual enlightenment is achieved through divine transformation rather than the brain’s electrical impulses.
