Found this via twitter - 



Do atheists have better sex? Yes. According to science, that is -- and more specifically, according to the recently released "Sex and Secularism" study.

In January 2011, organizational psychologist Darrel Ray, Ed.D. (psychologist for 30 years and author ofThe God Virus as well as two books on psychology) and Amanda Brown (undergraduate at Kansas University, focused on sexuality and sex therapy) conducted a sex survey of over 14,500 people -- atheists, agnostics, and other people in the secular community. The survey was looking at religion, atheism, and sex: how religion affects sex, how leaving religion affects sex, whether lifelong atheists feel differently about sex than people who have recently deconverted, and so on. The report -- "Sex and Secularism: What Happens When You Leave Religion?" -- is on the Internet, and if you want all 46 pages of the naughty details, including the charts and graphs and personal stories, you can download it free (you just need to register on the site).

But if you just want to know the gist?

Leaving religion improves people's sex lives.

Wonder what will theists make of this. Probably claim that it proves their assertion that atheism leads to sexual immorality.

Well how the hell can religious people be expected to enjoy sex at all!?  I mean, how would you feel if you believed your dead grandma was looking down on you from heaven?

LMAO Heather. Maybe we should start an ad campaign -

Do you realize that your dead relatives/ancestors are watching you have sex??

Hopefully the really nutty theists ones won't ever have sex after watching those ads & eliminate themselves from the gene-pool!

Well thanks a great deal Heather, I can now officially say goodbye to any potential erections I may ever again hope to achieve.

Lol this thread is hilarious. Better sex, huh? Not really that surprising, since most "true believers' don't have a good track record of enjoying anything.

On a related note, Arianna Huffington, who was once married to a Republican politician and is now married to a Democratic politician, says that sex with Democrats is definitely better. My wife likes to refer to this since she and I were at one time Republicans, and are now Democrats. Arianna is right!

Greetings Earthling,

I don’t care whether people believe in God or not.  I only care if people exhibit loving kindness, empathy, and compassion. I only care if people help each other, if people join forces to lessen inhumanity. 

I discovered Secular Humanism to be a mutual admiration society of armchair philosophers.  There is really little difference between a secular humanist, a Unitarian, or anyone mildly committed to any theist religion. 

I seek people committed to helping others.  Most atheists realizing there is no afterlife pursue pleasure, and happiness.  Atheists tend to see themselves as individuals rather than part of the brotherhood of humanity, or part of sentient life. 

I see humans willing to engage in self-sacrifice for the betterment of all.  Officer Spock: “The Good of the Many Outweigh the Good of the One.”

Unfortunately, humans do not operate logically. 

Humans tend to pursue a selfish game strategy that leads to everyone losing. 

If I had a little help, I could alter the future of mankind.  I don’t expect anyone to believe this claim.  I just wish I could find someone in a position to help willing to hear me out.

United we stand, divided we fall.  Organized humans can do much more good than individual humans.  National armies and business corporations succeed because they are organized.

Organized religion has been both a force for good and evil.  If we are going to destroy organized theism, then we need to replace it with some kind of organized group of caring humans. 

Poor / needy atheists have no community where they can turn for emotional support or emergency aid.  Government aid can not replace the role of a church to help a member in distress.  We need to find a way to form groups, where people know each other, and can help each other based on the kind of human being they are. 

In many religious congregations, when a member of the congregation needs help, the other members are there for them.  Religious congregations offer their members many benefits. 

Most atheists and secular humanists just want to be left alone, they follow the creed of Nietzsche or Ayn Rand.  There is are no secular humanist congregations where members help each other, support each other, and work together for the common good.

If you are an attorney, donating your time to work as a guardian ad litem is great. You may be self-sufficient, and independent.   What about atheists who are not self-sufficient?  What about atheists who need to belong to a community?  Where do they find camaraderie? Fellowship?  etc?  I find secular humanists to be very cold.  Secular humanists are cats. But most humans are like dogs. They need to belong to a larger family, to an extended family.  Atheists have nothing to offer people like this.

I discovered most people don’t believe in God because they think that is the most likely truth.  Most people believe in God so they can join a congregation where they can be part of group. The lone wolf is a pathetic creature.  When the lone wolf injures a leg it starves to death.  When a wolf that is part of a pack injures a leg, the other wolves bring it food.

Wolves are effective hunters only when they hunt as a pack.  They can bring down animals much larger than themselves. Lone wolves are not effective hunters.  This is why people join gangs.

Atheism is not a viable alternative to organized religion.  Until atheists create organized groups that cater to the poor and needy, they will be viewed as selfish, self-centered hedonists.

Please Google: “ultra empathy”

The very first listing is mine. 

Cheers,
