Bear in mind, I can't really tell you what I think 'thought' is (or what 'is' is for that matter).
I think that if genetic predisposition were 'proven' it would suggest (according to certain interpretations of evolutionary theory) that belief in God hinders our survival (since the trend seems to be away from).
It is, of course, more complicated than that.
By definition I think that belief in anything is psychological.
So... "Are people genetically predisposed to believe or is it their conscious choice?" ...maybe both?

- Or do those people who believe, do so on the basis of following set social norms?
I'd argue that fitting in encourages faux belief; nothing more.
What was your original question though?
