I'd be interested in understanding what conclusions Scuzz/Rowdy would like us non-religious folk to draw from this study.  Because honestly, if this is supposed to make me predisposed towards re-introducing religion into my life, I guess I should go with the Mormons.

that non-churchgoers have their life expectancy suppressed by their participation in a society that's pretty well religion-obsessed.  Non-believers are often discriminated against, but it's also just stressful to navigate the boundaries of a culture that nakedly loathes them.

You attack religion....you hate religion.....why........

You claim that I "attack[ed] anyone who even brings it up", and yet that quote demonstrates nothing of the sort.   Not only did I not attack you, the guy who brought it up, I didn't "attack religion."  If I hadn't read previous posts of yours, I'd suspect that English wasn't your first language given your propensity for misunderstanding.

I think he was insulted because you said you would be a Mormon. Christians hate Mormons and the mere mention of them sends Christians on the defensive usually. biggrin

Still trying to figure out why personal attacks are being allowed here. Since when is calling someone an idiot allowed here?

That link I provided shows that Mormons live longer than non-Mormons.  I'm sure there's no lifestyle choices they make that could account for the difference, of course, so the likelihood is just that they're most favored by God.

I know, I just honestly couldn't see what he was talking about either so I was making light of it.

It could be the no smoking, no caffeine life style. Also Mormons are very family oriented. I no several and they are very good people. A little to religious for me but very good people.
