Are Humans Hard-Wired for Faith?

This may be an explanation for why belief in God is so popular and why atheism is not, as I had asked earlier. It seems that religious thinking comes from specific pathways in the brain. It is possible that this means that religion is simply a result of our brain's configuration, that religious thinking was an evolutionary advantage that helped humans to "survive, adapt and evolve in groups over the ages,... to cope with death, identify danger and finding mating partners." It is also possible that God created humans and designed the brain specifically to understand his presence. Either way, this study definitely proves that without a doubt, God either does or does not exist.
