    the real decimation of Indian populations had nothing to do with massacres or military actions, but rather stemmed from infectious diseases that white settlers brought with them at the time they first arrived in the New World. UCLA professor Jared Diamond, author of the universally acclaimed bestseller "Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies," writes: "Throughout the Americas, diseases introduced with Europeans spread from tribe to tribe far in advance of the Europeans themselves, killing an estimated 95 percent of the pre-Columbian Native American population. The most populous and highly organized native societies of North America, the Mississippian chiefdoms, disappeared in that way between 1492 and the late 1600's, even before Europeans themselves made their first settlement on the Mississippi River (page 78)

  • Jumpin nous the data is the opposite about children and GOD !!!?

    CHILDHOOD THEISM Developmental psychologists have provided evidence that children are naturally tuned to believe in gods of one sort or another. • Children tend to see natural objects as designed or purposeful in ways that go beyond what their parents teach, as Deborah Kelemen has demonstrated. Rivers exist so that we can go fishing on them, and... show more
    CHILDHOOD THEISM Developmental psychologists have provided evidence that children are naturally tuned to believe in gods of one sort or another. • Children tend to see natural objects as designed or purposeful in ways that go beyond what their parents teach, as Deborah Kelemen has demonstrated. Rivers exist so that we can go fishing on them, and birds are here to look pretty. • Children doubt that impersonal processes can create order or purpose. Studies with children show that they expect that someone not something is behind natural order. No wonder that Margaret Evans found that children younger than 10 favoured creationist accounts of the origins of animals over evolutionary accounts even when their parents and teachers endorsed evolution. Authorities' testimony didn't carry enough weight to over-ride a natural tendency. • Children know humans are not behind the order so the idea of a creating god (or gods) makes sense to them. Children just need adults to specify which one. • Experimental evidence, including cross-cultural studies, suggests that three-year-olds attribute super, god-like qualities to lots of different beings. Super-power, super-knowledge and super-perception seem to be default assumptions. Children then have to learn that mother is fallible, and dad is not all powerful, and that people will die. S • Recent research suggests that children may also be predisposed to believe in a soul that persists beyond death.

  • Devin Kelley...surely the blame is with atheists and government?

    Nobody stopped this guy from doing anything. He should have been in prison for multiple rapes, fracturing his stepson’s skull, beating his wife, lying on his background check form. But instead he was free to kill people in the church.

  • Fear of God answers to fear of offending your spouse whom you love. Jesus teaches the silliness of thinking otherwise?

    Notice this-- very few people do Do not FEARf those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, FEARf the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t FEAR; you... show more

    I worked professionally in Statistics. What 63 Studies on Intelligence and Religiousness Really Say In 2013, researchers from the University of Rochester and Northeastern University pulled together all past studies conducted on the relationship between religiousness and intelligence at the individual (person) level. Of the 63 studies identified: 35 showed a significant negative relationship between intelligence and religiousness (the more intelligent a person was, the less likely they were to be religious). 2 showed a significant positive relationship between intelligence and religiousness (the more intelligent a person was, the more likely they were to be religious). 26 showed no significant relationship between intelligence and religiousness. In other words, only about half of the 63 studies suggest that the more intelligent a person is, the less likely they are to be religious. The other half of the studies don’t show that at all. The researchers themselves acknowledged, “The relation between intelligence and religiosity has been examined repeatedly, but so far there is no clear consensus on the direction and/or the magnitude of this association.”
