And the headlines read: BEING RELIGIOUS REDUCES YOUR CHANCES OF DYING BY 20 PER CENT
Here I thought 100% of people died. Apparently not, as 20% of Christians are actually immortals. How strange? Looking at better reports for the study we find a pretty critical point.
The apparent benefits of deriving substantial strength and comfort from religion disappeared when the researchers also controlled for smoking and alcohol consumption.
Realsie journalists are all blighted by this kind of poppycock.
