Atheists nicer to Christians than vice versa

Atheists are more generous toward Christians than Christians are toward them, a new study has claimed.

Researchers at Ohio University asked participants to share monetary rewards with partners in a version of the “dictator game”, in which one person had no power to affect the division of the bounty.

When atheists were told of their partner’s religious beliefs, they “behaved impartially toward ingroup and outgroup partners,” the study’s authors wrote in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.

However, “Christians consistently demonstrated an ingroup bias”.

Most religious people are sectarian.  But I find the notion that atheists are kind to people they despise ... to be questionable.

We don't despise the people, we despise their silly delusion. And the fact that they want to make it the absolute law of the land.

This should be obvious to anyone who is or knows an atheist. We don't care about other peoples' beliefs nearly as much as Christians do. They elevate their belief system to the most important quality of their self-image. We put more importance on our human decency; the stuff that actually matters.

I don't believe you (because you are human, not because you are atheist).

Yes, LBGT want to make us all gay, by law.  Atheists want to make us all atheist, by law.  Jews want to convert all Gentiles (or kill them all).  That is how people role.  However minority positions are not likely to take hold.  The majority positions, they do take hold, they are much more dangerous.

I wish your virtue signaling wasn't delusion.  That would take great faith in humanity.

Yes, theists are concerned about theological nonsense, and atheists are free of that particular BS.  Yawn.

Once again, the babbling shit-fest strikes.

I really had the impression that you were much more intelligent, and knowledgeable concerning the atheist position than this.

Bigotry much?

I just started posting here after a break, and I don't remember you being so intolerant.

I do not despise individual Christians (or other theists). Hell, my entire family are theists of various stripes, and I don't despise them, I love them, enjoy their company, respect most of them; except with regards to their silly theistic beliefs.

I have several very close Christian friends, (that I don't see nearly enough), but every year we all go on a long surfing trip to various countries (this year it will be Costa Rica). I would risk my life to save any of them from drowning. Wouldn't even think twice about it.

You do understand that it is possible to despise an ideology, without despising individuals, right?

Every individual human is worthy of my effort, to base my opinion of them solely on their actions, not based on their religion.

Unlike the Unbeliever, I don't find your spewed shit funny.  I don't think it is comedy, but unbridled hate.  You seem so embittered with life that I doubt you laugh at anything.  Even the god you invented is evil and cruel and you don't seem to mind that.  You are clearly not the same Baruch that I had really wanted to spend an afternoon sharing coffee and ideas with 10/15 years ago.  I am very sorry for what whatever it was that you have lived through that has turned you so bitter and hateful.
