The origins of religious disbelief (revisited)

Posted on January 29, 2013 by James Kohl.

The origins of religious disbelief

Excerpt 1) “Religious belief and disbelief share the same underlying pathways and can be explained within a single evolutionary framework that is grounded in both genetic and cultural evolution.”

Excerpt 2) “… one path towards greater disbelief arises from comparatively weak mentalizing abilities, which render the representation of personified divine beings unintuitive.”

My comment: Another path is via the failure to embrace the complexity of the cell with its genetically predisposed ability to adaptively evolve from unicellular to multicellular organisms with brain-directed behavior via ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction. If, instead, you attribute religious belief or disbelief to cultural evolution, you have probably ignored important aspects of Creation and the complexity of systems biology with its origin in the cell.

It would be interesting to learn whether more physicists than biologists prefer cultural evolution to its obvious genetic underpinnings of cell biology, and whether a statistically significant measure might link culture and physics to “mindblind” atheism. In the context of Darwin’s theory, however, no cause and effect was proposed that would enable adaptive evolution from unicellular to multicellular organisms with a brain.

What’s since been learned about genetics includes facts that seem unappreciated by evolutionary theorists who claim that Darwin’s theory of evolution challenged the fundamentalist interpretation of the Biblical view of creation. The Biblical view of Creation seems much more consistent with what is now known about molecular epigenetics and nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution.

Could it be the allegorical representations, which can only be taken in faith to be representations of fact, continue to be the source of disbelief thousands of years later when the biological facts that support adaptive evolution are known?  Is it likely that the ridiculous random mutations theory of adaptive evolution inadvertently tied to Darwin’s observations on species diversity is the problem “mindblind” atheists must deal with?

If so, perhaps physicists could help by learning about the basic principles of biology and levels of biological organization that are required to epigenetically link sensory sensory input to our adaptively evolved gene-cell-tissue-organ-organ system pathway, which links genes to behavior and back. If not, the physicists, evolutionary theorists, and others may be doomed by their “weak mentalizing abilities” to share with others their religious disbelief at a time when more biologists are sharing with others their belief.

James Kohl owns, and he has published books and award-winning research journal articles about human pheromones. With colleagues he was the first to show that a mixture of human pheromones increases the flirtatious behaviors of women, and increases their level of attraction to the man wearing the mixture - during a real-life social circumstance lasting 15 minutes.

What is the vomeronasal organ (VNO)?

The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is a cone-shaped organ in the nasal cavity, which is believed to be one of the body's receptors of pheromones. More, specifically, the VNO, which is part of the accessory olfactory system in the nose, does not respond to normal scents, but may detect odorless, barely perceptible pheromones.

Other schools of thought believe that it is not the VNO but rather cells in our main olfactory system and their affects on hormones secreted by the hypothalamus that are responsible for the affects of pheromones.

What are optimized pheromones?

Optimized pheromones are lab-certified pheromone formulations that have the optimum concentration of biologically active pheromones scientifically proven to produce behavior-altering results -- particularly as sexual attractants. Optimized pheromone formulations do not necessarily contain the maximum level of pheromones available on the market, but rather contain the greatest degree (and combination)of human pheromones that trigger a conditioned biological response in humans that, in turn, dictate their sexual behavior. Optimized pheromones also release neurotransmitters that directly modify the behavior of the opposite sex, such as triggering sexual excitement. For example:

Optimized pheromones for men are scientifically proven to bring about an increase in the luteinizing hormone (LH) in women, thereby causing a woman to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a man. This LH surge elevates a woman's predisposition towards sexual activity.

Optimized pheromones for women are scientifically proven to bring about a biochemical surge in men, thereby causing a man to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a woman. This biochemical surge is what makes a man fiercely determined to copulate.
