In this morning's local paper, the Charlotte Observer, there was a letter to the editor claiming that as the Nones grow, there will be a decline in generosity. This was my response:
"Mr. Schwab seems to be looking in the wrong places if he thinks the
"Nones" are less generous. A simple internet search of "Are atheists
less generous?" will reveal several studies showing that the religious
in the USA and around the world are LESS generous than atheists. Oh,
another internet search of "Atheists helping the homeless" will reveal
the fast-growing movement called Atheists Helping Homeless."
Atheists more generous
Atheists helping the homeless
SCIENCE (from the Latin for 'knowledge') informs wisdom, reason and humanism. This is a 4-legged worldview within reality that maximizes well-being for individuals and society.
