26. It IS definitely bullshit

On so many levels. For one thing, the "stress" of a rowing competition is completely unlike the stress of say, facing death for a condition for which science currently offers no cure or other hopeless situations in which many even non believers might turn to God and religion. And praying to a supernatural being is completely unlike thinking about science. The study did nothing but gauge how different groups feel about science, or religion. It's yet another attempt to illustrate that atheism or agnosticism is a form of faith. Which is bullshit.
