No, certainly not. However, I do believe that there is a gene that causes general disbelief in fate.

I don't think so.

entirely possible, highly impropable

Hehe. I agree with DK.

No, belief is acquired during life, through experience, and is not encoded in our genes.

I don't think so, the human genome has almost been solved.

Oh, for crying out loud!

I laughed.

A lot.

Or am I seeing a joke where there is none?

exactly. it's a weird thing to think about. Kind of like how if you don't believe in free will, you wouyld belive that you have no choice in not believeing in free will.

No but there is probably a gene that causes stupidity.

You're a retard.

what about the gene that made me laugh so hard at this ?

I don't know but if you don't believe in genetic dtermenism at all then why do family members often resemble each other? Coincidence?

Possible, but highly improbable, since the genome is basically all mapped. It's more likely that there's a gene that determines belief in general, rather than specific things...
