YES, BUT….

…look at it this way…It’s like being an atheist or agnostic. No place for wishful thinking? I agree if you put it that way. Yes, but…How many more suicides might there be if a mutation had not occurred which gave them hope? Hope for a spiritual connection? For a union/reunion? Where is that pocket of bliss that has perhaps already prevented many suicides–and thus posed a reproductive advantage for humans? Perhaps that’s the God gene, of which Wikipedia says:

“The God gene hypothesis proposes that human spirituality is influenced by heredity and that a specific gene, called vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2), predisposes humans towards spiritual or mystic experiences.[1] The idea has been proposed by geneticist Dean Hamer in the 2004 book called The God Gene: How Faith is Hardwired into our Genes.

“The God gene hypothesis is based on a combination of behavioral genetic, neurobiological and psychological studies.[2] The major arguments of the hypothesis are: (1) spirituality can be quantified by psychometric measurements; (2) the underlying tendency to spirituality is partially heritable; (3) part of this heritability can be attributed to the gene VMAT2; (4) this gene acts by altering monoamine levels; and (5) spirituality provides an evolutionary advantage by providing individuals with an innate sense of optimism.”
I’m going to have to think some more, so I’ll sign off for now.

Time magazine couldn’t find anything to disprove Edgar Cayce. When something that smacks of perhaps the occult I’ve seen even scientists suggest it was “just esp.” In many other situations they deny the existence of esp.
