What if Religiosity is genetic like homosexuality?
It kind of struck me while reading about the soviet treatment of the religious. Especially those who were former adult atheist of high academic achievement. They categorized them as having a mental illness.

Similarly during this time homosexuals were treated as if they were mentally ill and treated accordingly.

However I think it's well established now that homosexuality has genetic underpinnings that suggest it's a natural phenomena.

What if a genetic link to being religious is discovered? Will this change the attitude of atheists towards religion?

Also to add it must be noted that the communists tried for several decades through the strongest state efforts to eradicate religion and failed. Should we learn any lesson from this?

It makes sense.

Stupidity tends to run in families -- it lends to reason that so would religion.

Son, the only thing that bothers me in this world is veganism.
If we don't eat meat, the animals will rise up and take over. That's just an inescapable fact that certain morons in society do not seem to able to grasp.

You, on the other hand, are so unnoteworthy you couldn't possibly hope to bother me with your stupid opinions/thoughts.

I had a quick browse of some of the threads you made. I can take what you say as a compliment.

You have quite the way with asking loaded questions.

Comparing religion to homosexuality? Wtf?

There's a genetic link with sociopathy and with albinism. Should we excuse Jeffrey Dahmer's actions and give guys like him therapy to put a bandaid on lack of empathy like we give those lacking melatonin broad spectrum sunscreen?

The fact that I am gracing your shitty thread with my presence is compliment alone.

No , just looking at your threads and your language here you are basically a tool. Go stop polluting this thread. It's not a compliment for you to shake of it's shit on this thread instead of shitting in your own where it BELONGS. You have plenty of threads made by yourself specifically designed for your type of defecating.

The line of reasoning is that people who are homosexual are that way naturally on account of their genetics and if there is a link between genetics and being religious they TOO; the religious that is that way on account of their genetics and should be respected accordingly.

In this light being anti religious is no better than homophobia.
It shouldn't be anymore of a problem if a person quietly is religious and not bothering anyone than engaging in homosexuality and not causing any harm to others?
