GOD DOES NOT EXIST !!!...RELIGON IS A 'SELF CONTROL` MECHANISM DREAMT UP BY MEN A VERY LONG TIME AGO...THERE IS NO HEAVEN, HELL, SANTA CLAUSE, TOOTH FAIRY OR EASTER BUNNY...ITS AN ILLUSION!!!...just my opinion!

Thanks for that link LazyMe484, pretty interesting. I think this is a case of half assed journalism. The study must have been on people who considered themselves devoted Christians or something. The last sentence ""However, my findings indicate that while this is true among those less committed to religious life, it is not the case for people who are more committed to religious participation and rituals." I think highlights this. It's insane to think that 82 pct of all Americans consult God when making decisions.

So happy I'm atheist and don`t have to attribute the ups and downs of life to a loving or punitive deity.
Also it`s hilarious that people use stats like this to then reason that "Americans are stupid" because religious beliefs aren`t an exclusively American concept. Hopefully humans can evolve out of that mystical woo-woo belief crap someday soon. (I include homeopathy, telekinesis, religion, tarot, etc. in the `crap` category)
