    A “believer’s gene” is a theory that those who are religiously inclined have a genetic predisposition towards religious faith. While there is no way to prove that religious tendencies reside within out DNA, there are many speculations that religion could be in our blood. This raises the classical debate of nature versus nurture and seeks to find a reason why some people believe in a particular religion and others do not. Religious people tend to have more children than non-religious people, and if there is a believer’s gene, this would mean that religion is very likely to spread at very fast rates.
