Religious kids are "meaner" than those who are not religious
Says a team of scientists from University of Chicago. Would have posted the well written article which reviewed the report, but since it's in Norwegian, well yeah, good luck reading it. So I posted a link of the raw source instead:

http://www.cell.com/current-biology/full...%2901167-7

I hardly post here, so if this comes across as a quack page then I apologize.

Humans group, that is part of evolution, what religion does is turn our evolution into a comic book gang.

Not being a scientist, how do you determine the legitimacy of the website/authors? Also how do you know if it has undergone a legitimate peer review? Articles have to go through some form of review according to the webpage but I have no idea if it is a rubber stamp or rigorous.

RE: Religious kids are "meaner" than those who are not religious
This isn't the first thread on this.

The basic take homes of the article were:
  • Non-religious kids are less selfish.
  • Religious kids are less judgmental of people being mean to others.
  • Religious parents tend to over-evaluate their own kid's moral behavior.

Looked for a thread that was similar, but since this section gets like an average of 2 threads a day, it was too much hassle.

I've always guessed that people who need religion are 'worse' people than those that don't, rather than religion makes people 'worse' than the people who aren't.

It's that sanctimonious, holier than thou attitude religious people have that makes them think their shit don't stink and everyone else's does. This belief gives them the right to treat others like Dodgy..... crap.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

It's 2015, not 1985.

It's called Russia.
