Can I get an AMEN! -- no pun intended, of course ;-)

Hi Jon,

I just wanted to applaud some rational thinking! For some ungodly reason (lol!), there is still a stigma attached to being an unbeliever, and so I support someone whenever I see them speak up on behalf of rational thought.

Anyway, about what you said... I wonder if we don't have the "god spot" because it made people more prone to religion which benefited society in the past. However, when you think of all the wars fought and people killed in the name of religion -- that can't be good. But it allowed the people in charge to control the hoi polloi which may have been beneficial to a society's survival. Or like you eluded to, maybe it's just a flaw that comes with something beneficial that evolution has given us.

Whatever the explanation, an informed society should oppose irrational beliefs. IMHO, of course :)

Jon
