I suppose they have direct contact with their god who tells them these things.
Proves you have to be delusional to believe these things... Exactly my point..
Yeah, I'd like to see that study. It seems like she's trying way too hard to sound convincing.
As an atheist that has survived hurricane Katrina (among countless others), been in the middle of multiple tornadoes, among facing other common city dangers (getting mugged etc), I feel like using common sense saved my ass a lot more than hoping an invisible BFF would help me out.
In the survival situation which would occur in a theist government takeover, I am quite sure she's correct. :)
However, a quick Google Scholar check did not reveal any documents that supported her claim. As the most important survival tool for humans is intelligence, at least one peer-reviewed, cited, academic study in a key academic journal is entitled "Why Liberals and Atheists Are More Intelligent."
I doubt she even knows what a real study is.
@Arcus Excellent point. I guess you only have to be that little bit smarter than your average moron to get him or her to follow you, give you money, etc.
It shouldn't surprise me that this shit works on so many people, but for some reason it still does (surprise me). Maybe the tide is turning. We can only hope... and continue to speak out for reason.
