This is interesting...

Societies worse off 'when they have God on their side'
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. Many conservative evangelicals in the US consider Darwinism to be a social evil, believing that it inspires atheism and amorality.


I say we teach this new theory alongside "intelligent design."

ROFLMAO... That's an awesome first comment from anonymous 1... ;-)
Jesus bless us all..

As for the rest of the post, well, duh! I'm amazed it takes studies to find simple stuff like that out. Can't they just look at Holland and Sweden and places, and go 'Oh, look at that, horrible crime rates are way down, I wonder what they're doing different?'

scratches head in amazement..
