If you are looking for articles proposing that religion is the product of natural selection, check out http://evolution-of-religion.com/ . This is a web site of an interdisciplinary team of scholars who are conducting a "scientific examination of... the... hypothesis—that religious beliefs and behavior confer adaptive advantages to individual believers, and were therefore favored by natural selection over human evolutionary history." The site includes links to articles which have been published in reputable journals and a library of suggested reading.
