Headline: "New Study: Religious People Are Less Smart but Atheists Are Psychopaths"
What the hell is this? I'm too annoyed to read this article after reading the headline of it. Like, what the fuck, atheists are psychopaths? I haven't read something so demonstrably false from a news source I thought was okay in as long as I can remember.

I once took one of those online tests and it said I am a psychopath. I'm ok with that. Smile

I am frutrated by the fact i could not find the exact nature of 8 ethical questions/problems presented in this study. My bet is that those were loaded questions on which a theist would feel more connection than an atheist. As for the conclusion, it's a nice intention and important thing to remember, but is ultimately out of place in a scientifical study because of its tautological nature.

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.

I'm only a borderline psychopath. I feel some degree of empathy for young children and kittens.

I am crazy depending on the time of day.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

But most psychopaths are religious freaks along with their other sicknesses.

I enjoy the company of puppies and grew up with dogs. I've also eaten and liked dog meat on many occasions. So I guess it's situation dependent.

If God didn't want me eating babies, he wouldn't have made them delicious.
