From Booklist

Like his and Peter Copeland's Living with Our Genes (1998), geneticist Hamer's provocative new book begins with the caveat that a single gene rarely accounts for a complex behavior, such as homosexuality, which was instanced in Living, or spirituality, the focus here. Still, Hamer has done sufficient research to argue that a single gene is implicated in spirituality, and his highly accessible exposition of how he arrived at that point is pretty impressive, if occasionally a bit Mr. Rogers-like in tone. Later, he adopts antireligious geneticist Richard Dawkins' concept of the meme, or transmissible unit of cultural information, to expand upon how culture and genetics interact to prompt expressing spirituality through religion and thereby to sustain faith traditions, such as in the demonstration case here, Judaism. (Hamer thinks Dawkins' attitudes toward religion less than rational, by the way, and poses those of sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson as a healthy alternative.) He ends with another caveat: distinguish between beliefs and the act of believing--and the war between science and religion just might be resolved. Ray Olson

“Fascinating. . . . A compelling case that spirituality very well may be part and parcel of our genetic structure.” –Los Angeles Times“Hamer ably narrates his quest to identify a gene that strongly correlates with self-transcendence. . . . Persuasive.” –The Washington Post Book World “Hamer weaves a fascinating fabric of mysticism, culture, consciousness, and biochemistry . . . rife with history and multidisciplinary tidbits. . . . Enlightening.” –Seed“Challenges some basic assumptions we may have and certainly goads us into reflection about human nature.” – The News & Observer

5.0 von 5 Sternen Leave the Agenda Behind 14. März 2010
Von In Search of Lost Time - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you read this book carefully, you will not fall into the abyss of some of the negative reviewers who misquoted, and more importantly, misunderstood the hypotheses presented. These previous negative reviewers who accused this author of rewriting earlier texts, particularly citing Persinger, did not understand this author's point. Persinger's theory (and yes, his name IS mentioned in THE GOD GENE) was very broad and unrelenting. His book definitely had an agenda beyond presenting scientific results; and I find him today to be obnoxiously certain about the correctness of his view. (Many so-called "hard" scientists and MDs can fall prey to thinking in these "black and white" terms, when in fact, most intelligent scientists leave room for a little grey area that might be provided by later research.) Clearly, the author of THE GOD GENE is more the modern social scientist, and I, as a reader, appreciated having ideas suggested rather than being hammered by a self-righteous pedant. (Persinger's book is very old in scientific-literature years, the 1980s, and perhaps his approach to writing is also dated. He cited one area of the brain as the source of "irrational" human belief in "supernatural beings" or spiritual optimism which he also, incidentally, clearly sees as a temporary aberration wholly caused by changes in brain chemicals). This may have been ground-breaking research in the 1980's and earlier, but research since then has clearly outrun this first basic step. And gene research has a long way to go. If you are interested in this topic and have a mind that enjoys pondering interesting hypotheses, I highly recommend THE GOD GENE. Don't let the title dissuade you. The author has since admitted that it may not have been the best description of his project.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The God Gene 13. Januar 2014
Von Elaine White - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
There were two things that I really appreciated about this book. First, the model for the study was clearly explained. I think that is important when doing research on concepts. Second, although it is a very scientific study, the author's writing style is enjoyable. He uses terms to explain concepts that a reader without a scientific/research background will understand. His conclusions are interesting and verifiable. I enjoyed reading and thinking with him about the concept.
