I guess if a scientist says it, it must be true:
Religious belief can cause damage to a society, contributing towards high murder rates, abortion, sexual promiscuity and suicide, according to research published today.
According to the study, belief in and worship of God are not only unnecessary for a healthy society but may actually contribute to social problems.
The study counters the view of believers that religion is necessary to provide the moral and ethical foundations of a healthy society.
It compares the social peformance of relatively secular countries, such as Britain, with the US, where the majority believes in a creator rather than the theory of evolution.
Pardon my French, but what a load of merde! The religious leanings of those who actually participated in murder, abortion, sexual promiscuity and suicide weren’t considered, nor were the societies of the recent past that carried the philosophy of Darwinism to its logical conclusion (Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, and Mao’s China) analyzed.
In short, the conclusions of this so-called “research” are worthless, nothing more than propaganda intended to paint Christians as little better than murderous hypocrites.
