“Studies find…” whatever the people financing them – want them to find.

I don't find this surprising at all. Whether you're religious or not, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, is a very pertinent lesson for humankind. I would like to believe that most people in the world try to live by some version of that philosophy.

Sweden has a socialist bent - you might almost say that their politics creates a state religion.

Survey studies are useless.

No one is going to tell you they are unethical.

The deceptive premise here is that religion is a behavior modification program.

Religion is about what God wants, why we are here, and what happens to us afterward. Man's "morality" has nothing to do with that. So basically this is an atheist setting up a strawman then bragging about how he defeated it.

Communist propaganda bullshit.

It has nothing to do with living in a xian society or country. the fact is that most people tend to be moral in a civilized society. No amount of mythology is needed to be moral.

Both of my parents were good people. Both of them were raised in churches, and both left their churches as adults because "some of the worst people we ever met were church people."

Bad people gravitate to POWER. Period.

And that's the reason we are seeing a lot of wokeness in the churches now. It's a confluence of two streams of manipulative, power-hungry cunts.

If you're honestly a good Christian then good luck to you, but look to your wallet and watch your kids like a fucking hawk..

"Participants were asked to agree or disagree with statements such as 'I am willing to be unethical if I believe it will help me succeed.'"

So it's an utterly worthless study loaded with leading questions. Figured as much.

Let's check on the vast majority of Chinese and see how deep their morality runs.
