8:53 PM | Religion matters more than education when it comes to creationist beliefs
The USA is a conundrum when it comes to creationist beliefs.

9:30 PM | Are religious pictures more powerful than words?
Subliminal priming is a classic way to study how religion might affect attitudes and behaviour. But previous studies have had mixed results - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. In the last post, I described a study which found that using words to prime Muslims had little effect, but subtly playing the call to prayer did. Maybe Muslims are different from Christians? Or maybe there is something fundamental being revealed here.Take a look at some studies done recently by Sarah Cavrak & […]
