Evolution and Religion

Greg Graffin's Ph.D. work suggests that
  • only 10% of the people think religion is incompatible with evolutionary biology.
  • Relgion is an adaptation. A part of Evolution. That religion was manufactured by humankind.
  • Naturalist worldview proposed by evolutionary biology is harmonious with religion on one condition: If the tenets of theology such as 'existence of soul' or 'consciousness' and such are rejected as unnecessary.
A longer write up is available here.

Graffin is a evolutionary Zoologist who received his PhD from Cornell in 1991.
