Atheists...if any are lurking, join and defend your position on why God doesn't exist.  Agnostics you too...isn't it time to get off the fence and take a side? ;D

Are religious kids less generous?
« on: September 26, 2019, 04:50:31 PM »
Well, well.  Look at this.

Does a Religious Upbringing Promote Generosity or Not?

It appears that an article from 2015, in which a researcher claimed that data supported the idea that religious upbringing led to kids being less kind than non-religious kids, has been retracted because the data on which it relied was erroneous.  However, apparently many media outlets which covered the initial 2015 story haven't covered news of the error quite as extensively.

Goes to suggest not only that researcher data can be (very) flawed, but that social/political conservatives have an uphill battle against both academia and the media.  But we already knew that, didn't we?

So basically we get spoon fed fake news, fake research, and many gullible people out there don't know they are being duped.  This example is not the only one I'm sure.  I bet there is significant evidence against all of the claims about climate change that will never see the light of day until the narrative changes or no longer suits the powers that be.
