Evolutionary Psychology - This is sort of an economic model of human psychology, which posits that all behavior is caused by the need to reproduce. Argue all you want, but it works pretty well. Although it's predicated on the historical fact of evolution, I'd think that "Go forth, be fruitful and multiply" would be a dandy scriptural support for this theory.

EP has become sort of an intellectual fad in recent years, but I should stipulate that I supported it before it was cool. There's a good summary of basic EP in Survival of the Prettiest : The Science of Beauty. There were also a lot of articles in pop science magazines like Discover and SciAm back in the 90's, and there may be more now.
