    Don’t believe everything you read. See Camping, Harold.

    Besides, you’re supposed to become atheist because you’re smarter than the rest of mankind, not for personal gain. They’ll drum you out of the association when they find out.

    Maybe Christians who are happy with their sex lives stay at church. Rather than focusing so much attention on apologitsts arguing against atheism churches should focus on improving the sex lives of their congregations. Make sure the youth group is out by 7 because that’s when the guilt-free Baptist sex therapy starts!

    An important decision to make, and for all the right reasons it seems. You should write a book about it. “Nah, it wasn’t Dawkins, suffering and theodicy, other religions, church hypocrisy, a change in view concerning types of rationalism, or any of that. I just wanted hotter sex”

    Oh puh-leeeeeze. A self-selected online survey.

    An amusingly weak piece of non-research. A self-selected online survey with no control group has zero credibility as a piece of academic research. The article claims the data won’t be published in an academic venue because it wasn’t ‘peer reviewed’. This is false… you can always submit your research for ‘peer review’ later IF you research is of high quality. The data won’t be published b/c is it an intentionally skewed survey by a stunningly bad researcher.

    Duh: …

    (1) Only agnostics and atheists were interviewed. …“All his respondents — over 18 and all sexual orientations — had abandoned their churches and described themselves as agnostic or without a religious belief. “

    (2) Yet he was able to contrast this group with those not interviewed …“Atheists and agnostics were the lowest in guilt at 4.71 and 4.81. “

    What a tard.

    What we think he means is, he only interviewed agnostics and atheists (who else would abandon their church or native religions?), and those who were raised as agnostics and atheists had the least sense of culpability or responsibility for their criminal activity. (feign shock): “- Party!”

    But why be an atheist when you can be agnostic with the same orgasmic results? Agnosticism is more scientific.

    Oh, but Catholics and Lutherans scored almost the same. Looks like you can have low guilt and salvation too! Just confess your orgasms to the priest and …
