The God gene hypothesis proposes that human beings inherit a set of genes that predisposes them towards spiritual or mystic experiences. The idea has been postulated by geneticist Dean Hamer, the director of the Gene Structure and Regulation Unit at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, who has written a book on the subject titled, The God Gene: How Faith is Hardwired into our Genes.

This hypothesis is highly questionable, as is evident from the article.
...except that a series of recent articles has shown that certain stimuli and certain physiological conditions (think: epilepsy) give one experiences that could be termed religious / mystical. G_d as electrical stimulus: sounds a lot better than the big imaginary friend of childhood indoctrination!
