THE SCIENCE OF RELIGIOSITY IN THREE POINTS
Negative correlation between intelligence and religion.
Greater negative correlation for dogma than behavior. In other words people demonstrate ethical behavior under the advice of the religion’s wisdom literature but ignore the dogma.
- First, intelligent people are less likely to (need to) conform and, thus, are more likely to resist religious dogma.
Second, intelligent people tend to adopt an analytic (as opposed to intuitive) thinking style, which has been shown to undermine religious beliefs.
Third, several functions of religiosity, including compensatory control, self-regulation, self-enhancement, and secure attachment, are also conferred by intelligence. Intelligent people may therefore have less need for religious beliefs and practices.
In other words, we cannot NOT have some sort of intuitionistic training of some form.
Women are biased toward greater demand for mindfulness out of genetics.
The lower classes are biased toward greater demand for mindfulness out of ability.
“RELIGION” SOLVES THE NEURAL ECONOMY PROBLEM BY SOLVING THE MINDFULNESS PROBLEM.
