Think over it.

    1. Research shows that Atheist people are more ethical than the pious. Religion often (maybe usually), causes otherwise decent people to act in unethical, immoral, and bigoted ways. It isn’t a force for good ethics, because ethical and decent people are good for other reasons than religion; but religion certainly is often a force for bad ethics.

      1. The research is not clear on that actually. But for the sake of argument, let’s say that research shows atheists are 10% more ethical than theists. This is only an average, so that if the groups were further subdivided, you’d get more interesting data. Generalizing about religion is a mistake.
