No more convenient that labeling a perfectly credible study as 'incredible' and disregarding all the evidence to the contrary...wouldn't you say....
It's not credible. But you can support it all you like. It reinforces the fact that fundies are not very bright.

I would LOVE to see a movie of you in Research Methods 301!!!

Funny you should put it that way...a crystal ball would require belief...wouldn 't it??
Correct, and a crystal ball is about as real as your sky-god creature.

Just like you have to believe in Santa Claus, the easter bunny, the toothfairy, unicorns, humpty dumpty, etc, etc.

Things which aren't true or don't exist require belief.

David Popenoe, Ph.D. Life Without Father: Compelling New Evidence that Fatherhood and Marriage Are Indispensable for the Good of Children and Society (New York: The Free Press, 1996)

Reviewed by Matthew Sulzle

June 2009



David Popenoe’s book Life Without Father: Compelling New Evidence That Fatherhood and Marriage Are Indispensable for the Good of Children and Society examines the dramatic decline in the status of fathers and fatherhood in American culture in recent decades, and his conclusion is remarkable. In response to the arguments of certain lobbyists, politicians, and his colleagues in sociology who wish to convince the world that women and children no longer need men, this National Marriage Project (Rutgers University) researcher boldly states his thesis:“The aim of this book is to try to convince you that this no-father argument is fundamentally wrong. If we continue down the path of fatherlessness, we are headed for social disaster" (8).

The aim of this book is to try to convince you that this no-father argument is fundamentally wrong. If we continue down the path of fatherlessness, we are headed for social disaster.
The book is organized into four parts. Part One presents Popenoe’s diagnosis of the state of fatherlessness in our nation today. Part Two places this diagnosis into context by giving a history of fatherhood and family life in recent times. In Part Three, Popenoe makes his case that “fathers matter,” and that fatherhood is a virtue upon which the well-being of children and our very social fabric depend. Finally, in Part Four, he gives his recommendations as to what our nation should do to “reclaim fatherhood and marriage.”

Had enough 'sociology' yet??

"The aim of this book is to try to convince you......."

So he came at it with an obvious bias, rather than as an independent researcher.

Enough said.

More important is love regardless of gender.

Not into reading I see...actually, the answer is very simple, but you have to be willing to step outside the bias....doubt you will seek any truth on these matters...
So I take it you have no knowledge of any biased studies. You just make that up as an excuse to be a bigot.
