Is God an Accident of Evolution? The Next Step in Evolutionary Theory (Al Mohler)

This article by Al Mohler is about Paul Bloom, a Psych professor at Yale who posits that the reason for widespread belief in God is evolutionary in nature. I didn't read the Atlantic Monthly article, but I did read a piece that included Bloom's work in the Wall Street Journal a couple of months back.

Of particular note is this quote near the end of the article:
"Given his worldview, Paul Bloom would have us to recognize that we have outgrown the idea of God and that human beings should embrace a secular and scientific worldview, leaving the infantile residue of evolution behind."

I hope to tackle this prevailing "wisdom" among scientists in a post in the near future.
