Once more for science!

Being unbusy at work gives me an opportunity to catch up on my blog reading. I just ran across this article. I have often said that the more educated a society the less religious:

...survey, published by the Cambridge University Press.....concluded that "high levels of organic atheism are strongly correlated with high levels of societal health, such as low homicide rates, low poverty rates, low infant mortality rates, and low illiteracy rates, as well as high levels of educational attainment, per capita income, and gender equality."

For all my non believing friends out there; maybe there is still hope...after all we are barely out of the post colonial period!

I suppose he will beat the same drum.

This is an interesting article. I think I read it a while ago and then filed it away and forgot it. It would be so wonderful if the world would wake up.

I'm not mad, I just sit back and shake my head that you guys are so blind. Then you can say I beat the same drum, your doing the same thing, you beat the Gods not real drum. whats the difference? the difference is, one of us is correct the other will end up in hell for rejecting the truth. rick b

Rick how do you explain these facts? You can't possibly disagree since the facts are obvious and proven in several countries.

rick b said...

I simply do not see the article as "facts". Just because someone wrote that and called them facts does not make it so.

It's kind of like how atheists bend over backwards to try and prove the bible is false, and God is fake.

No matter how much evidence is given to you guys you keep fighting to prove it false. Rick b

No one is fighting anything, mate. It is just that the bible is!

I mean, have you ever, ever read your bible? According to the scriptures:

1. God inundated the waters from above and killed almost everybody on the planet, except Noah and his family and the animals in a putty boat! Really!

2. Balaam talks to his talking ass!

3. Snakes can walk and talk in the Garden of Eden!

4. Witches, gays and other "undesirables" deserve death!

5. Virgins of the female variety are to be given to the victorious Christian tribe as war booty!!!!

6. Women have no other role than to submit to their husbands and play the role of an indomitable sex machine!

7. If you masturbate, God will smite thee!!!!

I mean, Rick, seriously, get a life and read the bible, if it so interests you. Trolling around doesn't even give you half that excitement.

Go ahead rick. Start from Genesis all the way to Revelations.

Till then, we won't miss you. *Snort.

Beast, just because you dont believe and clearly mis-understand the Bible does not make it false. I cannot see your brain, I cannot touch it or smell it, but I suspect you have one.

So just because you dont believe or understand does not make it false. I dont understand gravity, Like your brain, I cannot handle it, see it feel it or anything, but it is real. Rick b
