    That wouldn't be an argument for the truth of religion, just the utility of it.

    I don't know if you heard, but placebos work too.

    Anti-white racism is still racism folks. Sexism against men is also still sexist.

    Well, the source isn't very good either. That source tends to give bad information quite often.

    Religious people live four years longer than atheists, study finds | Daily Mail Online
    Based on 1000 obits across the country from one year?

    Yeah. You run with that.

    I will tell you a secret. If you live long enough, you are going to die of something.

    If this is true, then I wish I believed in God.

    In this case, I think there's reason to question the study. While it has been published, I would venture to say that atheists are less likely to publish obituaries in the first place, which skews the numbers. When my great uncle passed (an atheist) there was no funeral and no obit. The paper ran a two-line death notice, which is customary. According to the study, my uncle's death notice would have been passed over because it wasn't a true obit. Yet, he lived to 99, just one week short of his 100 birthday.

    I have a feeling that's probably pretty common when it comes to death announcements.

    Religious folks are more likely to elaborate about the deceased. Atheists are less likely. That's just my guess, but I think it's a factor.
