    You already said it yourself, the majority of the world is religious. The two things aren’t correlated though.

    Now google “residential schools” or “the crusades” for example lol

      Apparently you didn’t read any of the hundreds of studies mentioned there showing religious people are more charitable.

        Yeah to recruit members, it’s just a business.

        Ever been to eastern Europe and visited the fancy gold plated cathedrals? Notice who is driving the new Mercedes s550 parked in the parking lot, and notice what the church attendees are driving. Charitable my ass.

          You have anecdotal claims. They don’t rise to the level of proof that the studies I mentioned do. Your claim is easily proven false, it doesn’t matter if you can’t accept that.

            What studies? You posted a Google search and have made about a dozen claims with no backing in his thread alone

              My dude… you are debating with an account that is less than 1 day old and has less than 20 comments (most of which are with you).

              Nothing good will come out of this when they need a burner account to state their beliefs

            Well, go give poland a visit, it’s not the watered down version of christianity that americans are subjected to. They literally run the entire country. That’s what happens when you let religion take over.

            I’m not downvoting you btw, it’s kind of refreshing speaking to a religious person on lemmy haha

        my brother in hell, if I believed in religion, and my religion says giving some amount to it or someone else gets me express pass to heaven, i’d be donating like crazy too. I’d be donating more if I know I’ve done horrible things and need more “blessing.”

        The charity doesn’t negate the bad things religion has done.
