If you have been wondering just what "biogenetic" means, there is an excellent example of the biogenetic understanding of human activities in terms of animal behavior in the article "God and gorillas" on the website Salon.com.

It's an interview by Steve Paulson with anthropologist Barbara J. King, author of Evolving God: A Provocative View on the Origins of Religion (Doubleday, 2007). It shows how really promising the anthropology-neurology linkage can be.

While trying to eliminate numerous spam comments, I inadvertently deleted all comments at the END of the posts up until #90. BUT... they are still preserved in the collections of comments found in posts #32, #67 and #83.

One set of comments, however-- for posts #84 to #89-- has been completely lost. If you happen to have copied any of them, I'd much appreciate your sending a copy to me so I can restore them. Thanks.
