Default People Who Believe In Heaven Commit More Crimes

Study Finds People Who Believe In Heaven Commit More Crimes

Duhhh!!

Quote:
SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) — Believing if you are on a “highway to hell” could impact whether or not if you commit a crime.

A study published in the scientific journal PLoS One by University of Oregon’s Azim Shariff and University of Kansas’s Mijke Rhemtulla finds that people who believe in hell are less likely to commit a crime while people who believe in heaven more likely are to get in trouble with the law.

The two professors collected data for belief in hell, heaven and God from the World and European Values Surveys that were conducted between 1981 until 2007 with 143,197 participants based in 67 countries. They compared the data to the mean standardized crime rate in those countries based on homicides, robberies, rapes, kidnappings, assaults, thefts, auto thefts, drug crimes, burglaries and human trafficking.

“[R]ates of belief in heaven and hell had significant, unique, and opposing effects on crime rates,” Shariff and Rhemtulla found in the study. “Belief in hell predicted lower crime rates … whereas belief in heaven predicted higher crime rates.”

They also found that a recent social psychological experiment found that Christian participants who believe in a forgiving God gave themselves more money for the study.

“Participants in the punishing God and both human conditions overpaid themselves less than 50 cents more than what they deserved for their anagrams, and did not statistically differ from the neutral condition, those who wrote about a forgiving God overpaid themselves significantly more-nearly two dollars,” the study found.

Shariff and Rhemtulla believe that the study raises “important questions about the potential impact of religious beliefs on global crime.”

Uh

A study published in the scientific journal PLoS One by University of Oregon’s Azim Shariff and University of Kansas’s Mijke Rhemtulla finds that people who believe in hell are less likely to commit a crime while people who believe in heaven more likely are to get in trouble with the law.

Basically it says if you believe in Hell you committ less crimes.. While people who believe in heaven are more likely to get in trouble with the law.

That study makes 0 sense.. Because if you believe in heaven then you believe in hell.

So People that believe in hell committ less crime it says right there

I'm sorry, how can you believe in hell and not in heaven or vice versa? unless u r jew or muzzie.

basically it says people who believe in 1 unconfirmed place commit less crimes and that another people who believe in a different unconfirmed place commit more crime.........

so basically, Jews are criminals according to the study and Muslims are law abiding citizens and Christians pose a difficult conundrum because they are both believing.*

*I took it to extreme stereos for an extreme problem with this survey.......

Point is that even if you are religious it doesn't mean you will not be involved in crime. There are more believer in the US than not so of course there are more religious people committing crimes than not.

All a Christian has to do to go to heaven is believe in Jesus. This is why so many criminals are Christians.

They get to rape, steal and murder and STILL go to heaven.

Sounds like a good gig to me.

Unless you're deeply religious, I highly doubt the promise of heaven or threat of hell affects much of what you do. I highly doubt belief in heaven or hell affects much of what western people do.

I think the biggest deterrent for anyone in the western world, atheist or christian or jew, is consequences here on this earth (jail). even that wackjob religious cult leader from waco, texas, when police tried to negotiate with him, expressed the REAL reason he didn't want to come out of the house - he was worried about how he'd be treated in prison.
