Science says faith is healthier

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC61047/

Results

Mortality was 28.1% (475/1691) in the intervention group and 30.2% (514/1702) in the control group (P for difference=0.4). Length of stay in hospital and duration of fever were significantly shorter in the intervention group than in the control group (P=0.01 and P=0.04, respectively).

Conclusions

Remote, retroactive intercessory prayer said for a group is associated with a shorter stay in hospital and shorter duration of fever in patients with a bloodstream infection and should be considered for use in clinical practice.

I guess atheists need to encourage faith because science tells you there are benefits.

You can’t argue with science.

The benefits of faith (but not prayer) applies to other monotheistic religions too

There was a strong linear association between Quran memorization and hypertension, diabetes, and depression indicating that those who had memorized a larger portion of the Quran were less likely to have one of these chronic diseases. Future studies should explore the potential health benefits of Quran memorization and the underlying mechanisms.

Even monkeys prayed for heal faster.

AKA no placebo effect.

Living in a Christian society has benefits.

Atheist tax?

This study was performed to examine the effects of intercessory prayer (IP) on wound healing and related physiological and behavioral factors in nonhuman primates. Twenty-two bush babies (Otolemur garnettii) with chronic self-injurious behavior (SIB) were stratified by wound severity and matched by total wound area. The animals were then randomized to IP and L-tryptophan or L-tryptophan only for treatment of SIB and related wounds. The IP intervention was conducted in a double-blind, randomized manner. Prayer was conducted daily for 4 weeks. Initiation of prayer was coincident with the first day of L-tryptophan administration. Physiological and behavioral variables were assessed at baseline and end of study. Following IP/L-tryptophan treatment, prayer-group animals had a reduction in wound size compared to non-prayer animals (P=.028). Prayer-group animals had a greater increase in red blood cells (P=.006), hemoglobin (P=.01), and hematocrit (P=.018); a greater reduction in both mean corpuscular hemoglobin (P=.023) and corpuscular volume (P=.008); and a reduction in wound grooming (P=.01) and total grooming behaviors (P=.04) than non-prayer-group animals. The results of this study are consistent with prior human trials of IP effectiveness, but suggest IP-induced health improvements may be independent of confounds associated with human participants. Findings may provide direction for study of the mechanisms of IP-induced health improvements in both human and animal models.

Christians iz magic?

sheeeeeet

I need to pray for a relative to win the lotto.

Teachers’ unions HATE THEM!

Need a piece of paper? You sure?

Moneyball your education.

http://www.openculture.com/free_certificate_courses

Delicious progress.

“You can’t put a price on a good education.”

You know, you were right….

Teachers will, by and large, go the way of horse-shoe makers and coachmen.

Protip: I know a lot of people who do these. Take 2 fun courses (they can be zany) for every 4 serious ones.

There’s freedom of association in action.


I want churches to start banning atheists again.
Picture r/atheism.
“We didn’t want to go there anyway but I have rights!”
No, you don’t. You’d think libertarians would know this.

Empirical appropriation?

Read it and weep, intellectually dishonest history re-writers.

They’ll claim Newton was Asian next.

You didn’t write these formulae or the many treatise on empiricism that makes science formally a method. It’s like when they try to call ancient philosophers ‘psychologists’ when Galton is probably spinning in his grave, clutching all the mathematics he brought to invent the field of psychometrics. He invented correlations and developed fingerprint technology when most people were still starting fires to cook dinner. Sure, give dick-measuring Freud credit, sounds fair.

Psychology is a “behavioural science” aka it needs maths!

https://apa.org/pubs/info/reports/stem-discipline.aspx

The National Science Foundation (NSF) definition of STEM fields includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering, computer and information sciences, and the social and behavioral sciences – psychology, economics, sociology, and political science (National Science Foundation, Division of Science Resources Statistics, 2009).”

https://www.simplypsychology.org/wundt.html
Wilhelm Wundt opened the Institute for Experimental Psychology at the University of Leipzig in Germany in 1879. This was the first laboratory dedicated to psychology, and its opening is usually thought of as the beginning of modern psychology. Indeed, Wundt is often regarded as the father of psychology.”

Freud opened his office in Vienna in 1886, for comparison.

Get over yourself. Even the Gutenberg press making the wide publication of scientific materials possible was European.

Nowadays the Method could actually be patented so ownership claims are valid and vital parts of legally-protected cultural heritage.

http://www.cultureindevelopment.nl/Cultural_Heritage/What_is_Cultural_Heritage

“Cultural Heritage is an expression of the ways of living developed by a community and passed on from generation to generation, including customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions and values. Cultural Heritage is often expressed as either Intangible or Tangible Cultural Heritage (ICOMOS, 2002).”

Ideologies too, including the invented philosophy of secular empiricism (not religious-based).

“Driving force behind all definitions of Cultural Heritage is:
it is a human creation intended to inform (John Feather, 2006).”

Methods of information in a race.

The more formalized, the better!

“Having at one time referred exclusively to the monumental remains of cultures, cultural heritage as a concept has gradually come to include new categories. Today, we find that heritage is not only manifested through tangible forms such as artefacts, buildings or landscapes but also through intangible forms. Intangible heritage includes voices, values, traditions, oral history. Popularly this is perceived through cuisine, clothing, forms of shelter, traditional skills and technologies, religious ceremonies, performing arts, storytelling. Today, we consider the tangible heritage inextricably bound up with the intangible heritage. In conservation projects we aim to preserve both the tangible as well as the intangible heritage.”

culture (includes precise philosophy and its movements) and technologies as a result of culture, what could that refer to?

On another note, white people have a legal right as a race to the exclusive use of our own symbols, including art, stories, architecture, fashions and food!

Give it back, you racist bigots.

They didn’t tell you that, did they?

Brief detour before the big reveal.

You have exclusive rights to your People’s

“traditional skills and technologies”
“objects, artistic expressions”

Picture Trump in a rice hat. Imagine their reaction. ….But this is fine.

WHITE CULTURE

DOESN’T BELONG

TO THE WORLD.

It’s embarrassing when you have no culture of your own to wear.

I’m big on earring archaeology.

“The ubiquitous coin necklace makes for the perfect starting point when layering—let it be your focal point and build from there.” “Pair a wider chain link necklace with your dainty pendants for the perfect contrast to your layers.” “Play with texture by mixing and matching different style chains with one another so each individual piece stands out.”

You mean like this?

Plagiarizing the style of dead Athenians from their very tombs. Shame on you.

On food, for fun.

It reminds me of the food lies (Dutch baby is an American name in the 1900s) like Americans stealing Yorkshire puddings and abusing them by covering them in sugary bullshit.
“Manca’s Cafe claimed that it owned the trademark for Dutch babies in 1942.” – wikipedia

Back to SCIENCE

Further reading: an important philosophical figure on par with Newton

https://www.famousscientists.org/francis-bacon/

was English.

Technically, Science (Method) was invented by the English.

BOOM.

That’s why everyone hates us, we invented pretty much everything.

“Francis Bacon discovered and popularized the scientific method, whereby the laws of science are discovered by gathering and analyzing data from experiments and observations, rather than by using logic-based arguments.”

Discovered = invented.

It isn’t a natural phenomena so ‘discovered’ is an inaccurate legal term.

Older books say invented.

It also has a true, academic name.

The Baconian method marked the beginning of the end for the 2,000-year-old natural philosophy of Aristotle, unleashing a wave of new scientific discoveries, particularly in the hands of devotees such as Robert Boyle.

Philosophy is not science, no math, no method. Bacon really invented falsifiability.

OT but

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5832789/Young-people-really-getting-stupid-IQs-falling-seven-points-generation.html

The above points were important because if you were taught these core fundamentals, you’d know 7 points in IQ is gigantic, especially in one generation. You could lose less than that with blunt force head trauma.

Since it’s rooted to a norm value of 100, that’s 7% of mind power. Compounding, heritable mental degeneration.

Video: What is a gentleman?

The beta thing is nice but no power. Nice is not a choice.

The cuck thing is power but no character. The wrong choice.

For a definition of coarse or boorish, picture an American rapper at a club. They are opposites. Birds of a feather flock together. However, cheap people will not let classy people alone, they constantly try to invade that space too.

The entitlement is a big reason they are vulgar.

This is not ambition aka the American Dream, it is a sense of being owed by other people for behaving decently or normally.

e.g. the beta expects everyone to like him because he pretends to like them, the creep expects a woman to sleep with him because he did her the honour of noticing her, the cuck expects social approval for selling you out with a smile.

These people are insufferable boors. All three of those have suppressed anger, rationalizing bad decisions.

This man in the video is more alpha than anyone insecure enough to write about it at length.
You do your own thing yes, but you needn’t be obnoxious about it.
