    Sky Fairies make you stupid

    Religious people understand the world less, study suggests | The Independent

    explains a lot about some posters


    Religious people are more likely to have a poorer understanding of the world and are more likely to believe objects like rocks and paper have human qualities, scientists say.

    Researchers at the University of Helsinki compared believers in God or the paranormal to people with autism after finding they tend to struggle to understand the realities of the world around us.

    Religious beliefs were linked with a weaker ability to understand physical and biological phenomenon such as volcanoes, flowers, rocks and wind without giving them human qualities.

      3000 years ago Italians worshipped many gods. They now worship one. At least they're moving in the right direction.

          Quite right. I never use bog paper without thanking it afterwards.
