Self-Exempting Reductionism Rides Again

‎"After comparing more than two thousand DNA samples, an American molecular geneticist, Dean Hamer, concluded that a person's capacity to believe in God is linked to his brain chemicals. . . . , and if he has refrained from arguing that a person's capacity to believe in molecular genetics is linked to a brain chemical, it is, no doubt, owing to a prudent sense that once -that- door is open, God knows how and when anyone will ever slam it shut again."
