For him, that is beside the point/5.

Question: "Does the 'God gene' disprove God?" Answer: Dean Hamer’s book, The God Gene: How Faith Is Hardwired into Our Genes, in no way disproves ’s theory – that the VMAT2 gene in humans is responsible for producing a belief in God – has been widely criticized both in secular scientific circles and in the theological world.

Popular science at its best, The God Gene is an in-depth, fully accessible inquiry into cutting-edge research that can change the way we see ourselves and the world around us.

Paul Wilson is the winner of the Career Achievement in Thriller Fiction in the RT Reviewers' Choice Best Book Awards. One example is The God Gene: How Faith Is Hardwired into Our Genes by Dean Hamer.

In this book Hamer explores the impact of genetics on belief in God. The specific gene in question, that everyone has some version of, is VMAT 2. Hamer claims that this gene accounts for the spirituality that emerges in some people but not others.

One of the most attention-grabbing efforts to link spirituality and genetics was put forth by geneticist Dean Hamer in his book, The God Gene: How Faith Is Hardwired into Our Genes.

According to Hamer’s hypothesis, spirituality is a “biological mechanism” that is imprinted on our DNA. His findings, published in a book, “The God Gene: How Faith Is Hard-Wired Into Our Genes,” are being greeted skeptically by many in the religious establishment.

In The God Gene, Dean Hamer attempts to explain religion and spirituality in purely physical terms. Yet, before he ever discusses the so-called "God gene," he redefines faith itself. Hamer begins his book with an illustration drawn from Buddhist spirituality, and within the first ten pages he redefines faith as "self-transcendence.".
