Study finds that children raised without religion show more empathy and kindness
A study conducted by the University of Chicago has found that children raised in non-religious households are kinder and more altruistic than those raised with religion. The study which was published in the journal Current Biology looked at 1170 children between the ages of 5 and 12 years in six countries (Canada, China, Jordan, Turkey, USA, and South Africa) and examined “the religiousness of their household, and parent-reported child empathy and sensitivity to justice.”

+Roger Parkinson I think the self-righteous, moralising piousness it what brings them to attention more than your 'regular' sex offender :)

Or "Gods will".

That means we won't pay insurance.

+Roger Parkinson Nope it wasn't productive. I think the mental leap to understand what you were being asked may still be some time away. Good luck with it. Vishnu bless you.

House fires are something I know something about having had a house wrecked by one in 2002. No injuries in my case. It's usually the smoke that kills people. You get a very dense black sooty smoke that leaves grime on the wall afterwards. People suffocate before they burn. Books, of course, don't suffocate and remain unharmed except for maybe a coating of soot. In our fire the fire crew contained the flames very quickly but the smoke had got everywhere a door was left open and that did most of the damage. If something like that happened in this case it is not at all surprising the person died and a book (with a black cover?) was undamaged. And, yes, I do get the irony that she sounds almost pleased a replaceable book was saved and her SIL died. Maybe this is her way of handling a horrible event.

SHOCKINGLY EASY! A British celebrity illusionist shows how easy it is with various methods such as cold reading to make everyday, intelligent people believe that they are being contacted by their deceased relatives.
[5:41] In this hugely uncomfortable climax to Messiah, Derren Brown skilfully convinces an audience that he has the ability to communicate with the dead, and is validated by an industry ‘expert’. [Source: Derren Brown YouTube link] Comments

Liar Liar Pants on Fire: "All of these methods point to the same conclusion: even if Lott wasn’t lying about his own results, his analysis would still be deeply flawed."

We were referred to Rita by a close friend when we had our first child. I had bad experiences with dentists as a child and we wanted our child (then later plural - children) to have a different experience. I also wanted to try to overcome my anxiety about them too. We have been going to see Rita regularly for the past 11 years, so I think this is long enough to form a strong and experience-based opinion. The clerical and dental staff are fantastic. Seriously friendly and helpful. Always willing to sort things out and work with you if you need to make appointment changes or your private health care card stops working! I've had a few emergencies over the years and the same is true. They will do whatever they can to get you in as soon as possible. Rita is gorgeous. She is sooooooo lovely. I can honestly say that I would sweat blood when I thought I had to see a dentist. I avoided them regardless of the problems I had. Rita has been instrumental in helping me to no longer find the process anxiety provoking or fear inducing. My heart no longer races at the thought of going to the dentist and I no longer avoid going. If you have any anxiety in relation to dentists, Rita she is the person to see. My wife, who has no 'dentist phobia' also sees Rita and we've been very pleased with everything she and the staff have done for us. Our three children enjoy going to the dentist for their regular check up and look forward to telling Rita and the other staff about the things that have transpired since their last visit. Here is are two specific example of our experiences: It appeared that our eldest child would likely need a dental plate to manage a problem with the growth of her upper palate. Rita told us that she'd keep track of what was happening. Finally she referred us to a specialist who didn't charge us at all - he said he wanted to wait at least a year to make sure any work was necessary! When it was determined that some intervention was necessary, the same specialist and his staff provided the level of consideration, friendliness and expertise that we experience from Rita and the staff at Balmain. Fantastic. Two years ago, I was experiencing extremely serious neuralgia. Rita referred me to a specialist who has published and presented work on the subject. In addition he was very, very friendly and supportive. In summary, it's not only that Rita and the staff at Balmain are very kind, friendly and highly competent but that if you need to be referred on, you are referred on to people who are similarly kind, very friendly and highly competent. I cannot recommend Rita and the staff at Balmain any more highly. At times I'm reluctant to refer people to her purely for selfish reasons - the more people know how good she is, the more people will see her and the harder it will be for US when we want to change our appointment times :)
