Religion and Evolutionary Psychology

Why humans find it hard to do away with religion: A summary and critique of current explanations for religion from evolutionary psychology — “The belief that we live under some kind of supernatural guidance is not a relic of superstition that might some day be left behind but an evolutionary adaptation that goes with being human. But the irony of the new atheism is that it is pre-Darwinian. If religion is an evolutionary adaptation, converting humankind from it isn’t so much unwise as simply impossible.”
