You need to understand a couple of things:<quoted text>
Of course ,the fact that this report was based on a Scientific Study conducted by the American Journal of Psychiatry is rendered meaningless by the simple fact that the report concludes that,because of their unbelief,Suicide and other mental problems are much more prevalent among those non affiliated than those affiliated with religion.
Now,how does an Atheist deal with that issue?
He/She is unable to accept the results and has to go into denial.
Any excuse will be used to attempt to negate the Scientific findings of this report.
These are the same individuals who claim that nothing created something from nothing,which eventually gave birth to the stars ,planets and life as we know it.
They can not explain how it happened......
It was an accident,who knows.
Most certainly could not have been created by a superior intelligence,but,noninteiligen ce is quite capable of creating such a miracle.
1) NEVER link to sources that are universally considered to be completely stupid, such as conservapedia. If you find an article on that site that links to a real source then post a link to the *real* source. If I see a link to conservapedia I do not click it and I assume the poster is a full-blown nuthut.
2) One study proves nothing. This is true of ANY study. For example, there was a study from a few years ago that showed homophobia correlates with homosexual arousal. In other words, the more anti-gay you act the more likely you are to have homosexual desires. But one study proves nothing. So it would be foolish to go around claiming that homophobes are closeted gays (though it is a fun way to rib a**holes).
3) Studies do not always tell us enough information. As was already pointed out, your suicide article does not demonstrate that belief in god reduces suicide rates. The actual factors involved are more complex than that and have more to do with social concerns that personal beliefs.
Have a nice day. I'm going to go wallow in my nihilism, read some Sartre, and take a bunch of pills to fill the baby Jesus-shaped hole in my heart. lol
