comment Is religiousness a genetically heritable feature?
@Preece I do not assume a priori that such a gene exist nor that the religiousness is it only function if such a gene exist. It could for example makes people more social and helps integrate the members of community (as integration is indeed one of the function of religions in human communities). Also, as I said, I do not think that the content of any religion is a product of direct biological evolution.

comment Why do humans have sex in private?
The argument that people prefer to have sex in privat in order to protect themselves when they are helpless does not convince me. Especially the analogy to other activites limiting the possibility of self-defence like sleeping or eating is not appropriate (in my opinion), because people commonly take the latter two activities in presence of other trusted people (to feel safer?), while having sex in presence of friends and family would be even more embarrassing (correct me if it is seen different in any other culture).

comment Is religiousness a genetically heritable feature?
@BenBrocka Thanks for revision of my question, but I think you've changed the meaning of my question. "Religious preference" may suggest what religion one will choose instead of if he/she believe or not.

Ok, I know that it is hard to measure the "religiousness", but was it studied for any possible measure? Qualitative or quantitative (theist/atheist)?
