The Faithful Are More Likely to Torture

Following my rant on guns on campus, I found this little ditty thanks to Philosopundit.

Big conclusion: The more faithful you are, the more you think you are justified. I chalk this up to someone thinking that they have God on their side. If that's true, then they somehow participate in the unfolding teleology of the righteous. Bullshit.

Smaller Conclusion: If these people had their way, they would be teaching creationism, not evolution, and we could bring back Aristotelian substances and get rid of particle physics!

Reminds me of this:

With or without religion, good people behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil — that takes religion.
