Hi Shakes,

I agree with all you say in your post, and particularly noticed the above excerpt. I think you have pin-pointed the relevant factor, the ability being more finely-tuned in some than in others.

It explains perfectly why many otherwise very perceptive people are ensnared in a belief in a supernatural god. Their ability "to make critical and sceptical judgements" in this direction is less finely tuned than in non-believers.
