It looks like you're just making excuses.
Why don't you look at other historical studies on people based on race or religion and you'll see why I seriously question the credibility of the study.

Do you seriously want an honest answer to that question?

Let's see you use a study that reeks of trying to further an ulterior agenda, there are plenty of historical examples as to why this study probably isn't credible, and you accuse me of being irrational.

The reason a lot of people have a problem with atheists has to do with their attitude.
