re: #139 Anymouse 🌹

Mostly I shy away from those sort of claims… it’s very difficult to show causality in human character traits in general and something as vague as “religion” is going to be even more of a challenge to analyze.

While there have been previous research trying to link attraction to certainty (which is expressed in religious fundamentalism or political “conservatism”) with various genetic causes, frankly complex human traits are polygenic and the correlations demonstrated don’t rise to near anywhere a physical science requires for evidence (though social science seems quite happy with just one sigma values.)
