Hi All--
The following article should be retrievable from the NEW Times. It
summarizes a good deal of recent research on theorizing
about the foundations of religious beliefs in humans. Not a perfect summary,
but pretty good for anyone who is unaware of this
line of discussion.

 In the world of evolutionary biology, the question is not whether God
exists but why we believe in him. Is belief a helpful adaptation or an
evolutionary accident?
