79. Very interesting. I would point out one thing, however.
The article says, "...and the research proves, they contend, that belief in a higher power is an evolutionary asset that helps human survival".

Just because something improved the chances of survival at one time does not mean it still does so. I would say religion may be one of those things that was a net benefit when we lived in huts, but is now a net negative.
