evidence suggested in this paragraph of the O.P. article in looking at the basis of spiritual belief or faith as a hardwired evolutionary trait.

"The study found that several areas of the brain are involved in religious belief, one within the frontal lobes of the cortex which are unique to humans and another in the more evolutionary-ancient regions deeper inside the brain, which humans share with apes and other primates, Professor Grafman said."
