Citing sources.
I recently heard the following.

"Believers are more likely than unbelievers to seek extraordinary medical treatment when faced with a condition that is likely to be fatal."

The thing is that I cannot remember where I heard or read that. Maybe a speaker at the Reason Rally, or on YouTube or on a post here. I think it's a real gem but I hesitate to use it in debate because I can't cite a source. Can anyone help me out?

RE: Citing sources.
Sorry. never heard it. Did you type the phrase into google?

I just did and the first entry is this thread. Smile I don't have the time now, but it if you keep changing the wording you might find it.

I had a look see, and came up with zilch. The closest I could find was something about stress and anxiety differences in each of the two cases:

"Believing in God can help block anxiety and minimize stress, according to new research that shows distinct brain differences between believers and non-believers."

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

I heard this back on the old RDF forums. That's the extent of my memory.

RE: Citing sources.
is pray methods extraordinary medical treatment. Or does it count holistic treatment? or experimental scientific treatments?

without even an acknowledgement of what Extraordinary is the source isn't even still the only concern.
