Resumo

Este artigo tem por objetivo apresentar os argumentos de Daniel Dennett e de
Richard Dawkins para explicar o surgimento, a presença e a continuidade das religiões na
experiência humano-social conforme elaborados respectivamente em suas obras Breaking the
Spell e The God Delusion.Um ponto comum nos argumentos apresentados por esses autores
neoateístas é que a religião deve ser analisada e explicada pela via biológica e à maneira
darwiniana, isto é, como um processo gradual de evolução cultural.
