If you were wondering, non-religious people are way better than religious ones. It says so right here on this non-religious site.
The story reads:
Highly religious people are less motivated by compassion than atheists, agnostics and less religious people, according to a new study.
Research from University of California, Berkeley published in the most recent edition of the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science found a stronger link between compassion and generosity among non-religious or less religious people.
“Overall, we find that for less religious people, the strength of their emotional connection to another person is critical to whether they will help that person or not,” UC Berkeley social psychologist and study co-author Robb Willer explained. “The more religious, on the other hand, may ground their generosity less in emotion, and more in other factors such as doctrine, a communal identity, or reputational concerns.”
Non-religious people are motivated by real emotion. Not by threat.
Or by duty.
We see and hear a request, and we spring to action.
It makes gives humanism a gentle touch rather than one that is based on weird rules written in a book with contradictory regulations and impositions.
So take that, religious people. We can find a resource to make us look superior on paper, too.
