Quote of the Week:

'Humans are evolutionarily designed to be paranoid and they believe in God because they are paranoid.
'This innate bias towards paranoia served humans well when self-preservation and protection of their families and clans depended on extreme vigilance to all potential dangers.
'So, more intelligent children are likely to grow up to go against their natural evolutionary tendency to believe in God and they become atheists.'
