Sioux Falls Atheists recommends the following courses on the root causes of human behavior.

Sioux Falls Atheists especially recommends the courses The Neuroscience of Everyday Life and Understanding the Mysteries of Human Behavior. These two courses focus on the root causes behind human behavior, one of them being your genetics. Gone are the days when psychologists and sociologists could solely blame the environment and how you were raised for human behavior. The evidence is overwhelming that 30% to 50% of human behavior is driven by the individual's genetics. What everyone is so worried about is what does this mean for free will? It clearly means that one's free will cannot always be counted on to control your behavior. Your free will is not the only factor in your decision making process such as the "Tabula Rosa" crowd would like you to believe. Your genetics is actually running a lot of the show. For instance the drive to survive and breed is so basic, so overwhelming, that it spurs us on into behaviors that are hard or nearly impossible for us to control. Want proof? If you've been heterosexual all your life, and felt desire only for the opposite sex, try becoming a homosexual and feeling desire for the same sex as you. Good luck!

Secondly the Sioux Falls Atheists recommends the course The Spiritual Brain. When people with strong spiritual beliefs have spiritual experiences their brains are flooded by endorphins and other naturally occurring mind-altering drugs. Brain scans show they light up like Christmas Trees. They are on a natural high that strongly reinforces the spiritual behavior. Studies have show that spirituality (not the same as being a believer in a established religion) has several genetic components. They show that spiritual people are happier, are healthier, and live longer. Seems spirituality has survival and breeding benefits. It makes perfect sense then that spirituality would be genetically encoded. Atheists need to live with this and accept it and deal with it.
