FunVax is a Government made viral vaccine that "cures" religious fundamentalism. It inhibits VMAT2 the so called "God Gene" which causes people to be prone to have spiritual experiences. Although FunVax has brought stability to several countries in the Middle East and is currently responsible for the pro-democracy rallies through out the Middle East we believe that it is a dangerous precedent for the future. We also worry about FunVax spreading to Western Countries and disrupting the belief system in the US and Europe. Joey Lambardi originally leaked this information and is planning on making all his evidence available at funvax.wordpress.com...
Molecular biologist Dr. Dean Hamer, in his recently published book The God Gene: How Faith is Hardwired into our Genes explored this "sense," or feeling of a higher power, and has concluded that it could possibly be the result of a gene known as vmat2. This gene may be directly responsible for an inherited predisposition for spirituality. Dr. Hamer narrowed his search for the suspected spirituality gene to nine specific genes known to play major roles in the production of monoamines. These chemicals include serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine, which regulate functions such as mood and motor control. A variation in a gene known as vesicular monoamine transporter, or vmat2, seemed to be directly related to how volunteers for Dr. Hamer's experiment scored on his self-transcendence test. Those volunteers with the nucleic acid cytosine in one particular spot of the gene scored higher than those with the nucleic acid adenine in the same spot (1).A single change in a single base of the gene seems to be directly related not to the belief in God, but to the increased probability that that individual will identify as spiritual. The results of Dr. Hamer's experiments are not wholly impressive, mainly because his work has yet to be repeated, and much of his analysis is provisional, but it does demonstrate the belief by some in the scientific community that spirituality is not a result of transcendence; rather, it is a result of chemical signals.
