There are a few popular books going around about some new “discoveries” in the brain. Purportedly, our faith is wired into our Genes. I have my suspicions about this hypotheses and how they reach their conclusions. Nevertheless, some Christians might be getting scared that this assertion might be true, and it is the only reason we may have faith.

Rest assured; there is nothing to fear. Even if it is true that some people are wired to faith (although I do not necessarily agree), it makes no difference. Let me save you tiring library research. The bottom line is this: regardless if we are wired for faith or not, it tells us nothing about whether or not the claims of Christ are really true. In other words, the validity of Biblical texts and the historicity of Christ are either true or false regardless of how you are wired.

For this reason, I take no “stress” to the “God Gene” hypothesis.

Hey! The answer to my prayers! Another post. Now I don't have to cry. I feel sooo much better. Did you read the quotes I put on your bottom most post? I have so much fun finding those.

What won't these "scientists" come up with next? You know, there were some criminologists a while ago who came up with some theories similar to that one. They tried to use characteristics like facial features, body build, etc to determine whether a person was more or less likely to be a criminal. Their theories were shot down faster than you can say the sh!* has hit the fan. Well, maybe not THAT fast, but you get the idea. So, I wouldn't pay too much attention to their "newest theory."

Besides, if this theory is true then it would go against anyone who has ever said that we humans have the ability to choose (and that's a lot of people). I don't believe in that being wired or destiny stuff. I like to think that I am paving my own way. But that's just me. To everyone else out there - whatever floats your boat. Hmmm, time to post a few more quotes. C ya!

Better late than never for my post, right? I say the quotes you posted—those are good. I can use some material like that! I also commented in the other blog comments. P.S. don’t pave your way into ditch, pay attention to where you’re going!!!

What do you mean "pave my way into a ditch"? I've never heard that before.

You said, “I like to think that I am paving my own way.” I was just suggesting some navigation.

Thanks for the suggestion. People in my family have been known to be ....navigationally challenged. But for me, so far, just a few canyons and gorges. I'm not lost...yet.
