Is there any word in modern usage as telling as "hardwired?" We are now bring informed that we are evolutionary machines "hardwired" for religion. See reviews of Nicholas Wade's new book, "The Faith Instinct" here and here. Love is just an evolutionary trick to get us to bond and take care of our children, you see. Religious experience is just an illusion to foster altruism, thus benefitting group selection. Morality must be some kind of evolutionary trick as well.
And this is where modern secularism meets fatalism: I can't help it, I'm just wired that way. We are only our bodies and our bodies are only machines.
