    Some study shows even things like empathy and friendship can be hardwired into us;

    The one thing that is Hard Wired is the yearning for knowledge. There is that innate desire to fill every unknown gap. If something is not understood it is not enough to accept that it is simply not understood, but to create something in its place in order to explain it. Just as in algebra it is an unknown variable. The Scientific approach is to accept it as such & accpt the variable as an unknown quantity. The Creationist view is to attribute everything regarding that unknown variable to a God.

    God did not create Man. Man created God.

    There is a yearning for knowledge; and I don't think its the end of the God story; by far.

    On the contrary, our latest research and quantum understandings point towards quantum fields that exist after death in people, and throughout the Universe. Science is close to proving God, possibly even interacting directly or merging with Him.

    Science will play its role up ahead in knowledge, I think the union between man and God will be filled by relationship, not science. I think its going to be a " Ruler-subject" type of existence.

    Re: The brain " Hardwired to believe in God."

    In Eph. 1:9-11 the bible covers " Predestination", it reveals that we exist, because we were supposed to exist. It shows how God " purposed it according to his will", not according to our will or happenstance. It said that this existence of our lives is God's good pleasure.

    Predestination , or God foreordaining; God established in advance lets us know a bit more about him, he is a predestinarian. This puts him in control of past, present and future then, which is astounding. Even we can conceive those three things in just our finite consciousness. Imagine to be able to manipulate them as God must do!

    I anticipate one day getting to know God, so I am not against that assumption living within my consciousness before and being there up ahead in my future.

    I think God has hardwired the future of all humanity; life itself, which is why I have hope for our future. I sense its all just in his great awesome hands, his creative peaceful, well balanced mind has it in order. I believe he really loves us all and will be there for us in his own time and way, when it comes down to it.

    Is God then some kind of control freak? No, he is a great ruler , a supreme being responsible for all things.
