13648The Faith Instinct
- Jan 4, 2011I am reading an interesting book called "The Faith Instinct: How Religion
Evolved and Why It Endures" by Nicholas Wade. It speaks of the
evolution of religion from man's hunter/gatherer days to today's
mega-churches. It begs the question, "Did we evolve this instinct as a
method of survival to enable groups of people to interact and bond
together or were we endowed with this instinct by god so that we may
seek him/her/it out for purposes of worship"? Do humans need religion?
Does Humanity need religion? The book does not much address the
existence of a god, but our tendency to band together for worship.
Wouldn't a bowling league be as effective?
