Recent DNA analysis shows that the majority of modern humans alive today have at least some genetic material in common with Neanderthal humans. Archaeologists believe that the first evidence of religious behavior has been found in excavations of Neanderthal dwellings in France. The presence of Neanderthal DNA in modern Europeans has led some scholars to assert that Europeans are genetically programmed for religious behavior in ways that people from other areas of the world are not.

Which of the following, if true, more seriously weakens this argument?


A The areas of the Neanderthal excavations have climates in which artifacts are exceptionally well preserved, unlike other area of early human activity,

B There is disagreement among archaeologists as to whether the artifacts found in Neanderthal excavations actually indicate religious behavior.

C Evidence of religious behavior has been found in every known human culture.

D A significant portion of modern Europeans do not practice any religion.

E It is impossible to tell by looking at someone whether he or she has Neanderthal DNA.

I went for B. Though C also seems convincing. Can someone throw light on the options.
