    Rut roh.

    A team of developmental psychologists led by Prof. Jean Decety examined the perceptions and behavior of children in six countries. The study assessed the children’s tendency to share—a measure of their altruism—and their inclination to judge and punish others for bad behavior.

    Children from religious families were less likely to share with others than were children from non-religious families. A religious upbringing also was associated with more punitive tendencies in response to anti-social behavior.

    The results were at odds with the perceptions of religious parents, who were more likely than non-religious parents to report that their children had a high degree of empathy and sensitivity to the plight of others.

    “Our findings contradict the common-sense and popular assumption that children from religious households are more altruistic and kind toward others. In our study, kids from atheist and non-religious families were, in fact, more generous,” said Decety, the Irving B. Harris Distinguished Service Professor in Psychology and Psychiatry and the College and director of the University of Chicago Child NeuroSuite.

    The study included 1,170 children between ages 5 and 12, from six countries—Canada, China, Jordan, South Africa, Turkey and the United States.
    I'm sure supernaturalists will include this as a data point in the continuing striving for more ethical behavior.

    Whenever someone says something is "common-sense", odds are they just pulled it out of their arse, or learned it from someone else who pulled it out of his/her arse, and are trying to use it to end the argument that they know they are losing. Whether it's a Republican trying to explain the concept of trickle-down economics, or a Christian trying to explain the logic behind the story of Creation and Original Sin.

    Boy, those Comments.

    We can presume most if not all of the victims were boys. It needs to be made clear to show that this is a problem of active homosexuality in the priesthood. Homosexuality and coercing vulnerable boys into homosexual acts are the same thing. This is not pedophilia.

    She needs to follow the money and search every garage, attic and shed of every relative of the chancery officials. Many documents were offloaded in the dead of night in the hopes they would escape subpoena.

    It's an Ark. If it sank, it goes to the Titanic exhibit.

    Re: Religion Thread: We Could Say a Prayer

    Has anyone told evangelicals that Jesus was crucified by those claiming "religious liberty?" Or do they leave that little nugget out on purpose?

    School district told to stop accommodating students for Ramadan.

    Yes, Evangelicals are behind this. As if Christians are the only ones deserving of religious freedom (I read the New Testament repeatedly, and no, religious freedom isn't promised between Matthew 1:1 and the end of Revelation).

    They leave a whole slew of nuggets out all the time. Not just that one. Not a single passage in a Gospel can be talked about without putting it through the "Paul" filter.

    He was? I thought the Jews killed Jesus because he called himself God.

    so this guy sits on sexual abuse complaints for years, yet complains that LGBT Pride events are harmful to children? That's richer than anything I've ever baked.
