15. see i rather took the opposite from it..

 

..speaking as a godless heathen with high moral standards too..

to me the more annoying canard is trying to equate mundane "belief" with "religious belief".. it's the wobbly *stool* some believers like to stand on when preaching that atheism is "just another religion". the same wobbly *shit* that spawned, 'thars [sic] no athiest [sic] in foxholes!' canard.

i can accept, however, that not every nonbeliever is a scientist, and that science takes training.. the method takes practice to apply it well. it's interesting to me that, if this study is correct, then even though not every atheist is a scientist, atheists in general *tend* to look for a rational approach to problem-solving under stress.

iow, they don't crack and start begging jeebus for forgiveness.
