Religion and Scientific Literacy

Analyses show that sectarian  Protestants, Catholics, and people with fundamentalist beliefs in the inerrancy of the  Bible have significantly lower levels of scientific literacy when compared with secular  Americans. Religious differences are identifiable in multivariate analyses controlling  for other demographic factors.

Conclusions. Religion plays a sizeable role in the low  levels of scientific literacy found in the United States, and the negative impact of  religious factors is more substantial than gender, race, or income.

Īsi sakot. Jo neizglītotāks cilvēks, jo vairāk maldās pasaules izpratņu džungļos.

Reliģiozi cilvēki mazāk zina par pasauli, mazāk dzīvo realitātē. Viņu smadzenēm pietiek ar reliģijas mantru radīto mazo  pasauli.

Harmonisku, nepretrunīgu un dziļi harmonisku izjustu, bet – no īstnības tālu esošu pasauli. Smadzenes mūs piemāna, un mēs to nezinājām gadusimtiem. Kāda traģiska smadzeņu darbības īpatnība! Skarbi.

Palasiet tik latviešu dzejnieku (Austra Skujiņa, Fricis Bārda, Jānis Ziemeļnieks, Jānis Grots, Eduards Veidenbaums) skaisto dzeju. Kāda traģiska nezināšana un meklējumi! Skumjas, jautājumi un vajadzība pēc īstuma un patiesības.
