What an interesting and thorough article! Personally, I hesitate to ascribe anything to 'human nature'. I definitely do not think that being spiritual/believing in God is an inevitable part of evolution, because I don't think anything is necessarily inevitable. We might evolve in certain ways but that is based on an innumerable number of factors and I think it's limiting to think that it is inevitable or 'natural'. Almost anything can become natural or accepted over time- maybe in regards to this issue it would be interesting to go into more depth on WHY children show these predispositions and how that reflects on our society and ourselves as people---> in terms of societal/environmental/historical etc influences instead of evolution/human nature.
What do you think? :) thanks for sharing this piece!
