I agree with this study about anti-atheism being deeply ingrained. Even after hundreds of years of doubt and science debunking this, that, and quite a number of things in the Bible, people still gravitate to their holy books. Why?
Just goes to show, we may have some very good technology, but our social-cultural milieu has a long, long way to go before we can truly call ourselves an enlightened culture.
Anti-atheist distrust ‘deeply and culturally ingrained’, study finds
Contrary to what this study found, when I hear of someone doing something illegal or dishonest, my first inclination is to think that that person must be religious. Religion breeds a cognitive dissonance in people, and after all, all you allegedly have to do is ask for forgiveness from the hippie upstairs and all will be right with the world. So you can fuck your brains out, fuck that alter boy, or steal to your hearts content, as long as you ask forgiveness. Such bullshit.
