Default Atheists deemed untrustworthy: Study

Atheists are almost universally perceived as untrustworthy, a new study has found.


"Where there are religious majorities - that is, in most of the world - atheists are among the least trusted people," said lead author Will Gervais, a doctoral student in psychology at the University of British Columbia. "With more than half a billion atheists worldwide, this prejudice has the potential to affect a substantial number of people."


The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, combines information collected from six different surveys.


One, a Gallup poll in the U.S., found only 45% of American respondents would vote for a qualified atheist president, and rated atheists as the group that clashes most with their vision of America. What's more, many Americans say they disapprove of their children marrying atheists.


In another survey of university students in Canada, researchers described hypothetical situations in which someone does something untrustworthy, such as pretending to leave insurance information after backing into a car, then asked participants to guess if the person was a Christian, a Muslim, a Jewish person, a gay man, a feminist, a rapist or an atheist. Only rapists were deemed as untrustworthy as atheists.


Respondents said they are also more likely to hire a religious person for any job that requires a high level of trust.


"Outward displays of belief in God may be viewed as a proxy for trustworthiness, particularly by religious believers who think that people behave better if they feel that God is watching them," said Ara Norenzayan, co-author of the study.


"While atheists may see their disbelief as a private matter on a metaphysical issue, believers may consider atheists' absence of belief as a public threat to co-operation and honesty."

The Virtue of "trust" starts with the Catholic Church

athiesim is not the opposite of religion. its the opposite of believing in God.
i have athiest friends and i tell them how stupid they are as often as i can.

i think the trust issue comes from having shared worldviews. athiests dont share the same worldview as theists so their actions are less predictable if predictability is even possible.

Atheism is about objectivity. Every Atheist ive met is a selfish idiot, with no sense of self or those around them. To them god has done nothing for them, their is no god, so they just do what they want. They make me want to punch them in the face. They're not Atheist, they're Satanists and raging drug addicts. I can't even imagine living a life without a God. I've actually only met one self professed Atheist.

I'm muslim, but I understand an atheist's viewpoint. I got plenty of atheist friends and they simply don't want to play the game. can't blame them. they're just sitting on the sidelines doing their own thing. true, some of them are arrogant assholes, but most just don't care and that's whatever. anyway, I don't get why so many people get offended or pissed by atheists. did they steal your lunch money?

It's always fun when to watch Christians or Muslims attempt to illustrate atheists or agnostic atheists as evil, untrustworthy, morally corrupt , lost individuals for not embracing ideologies that have spread across the globe like chemical reactions usually by violence or forced indoctrination.

.but when a counter punch is thrown and they get quizzed about their own set of ethics too which they subscribe (whether it be: deontological, pragmatist, or consequentialist) more than often they stare off into the abyss of space when a very challenging hypothetical question is posed that might conflict with some bitch ass scriptures written by the feet of neanderthal men.

Hahaha. Not to say it hasnt happened just not to me. My story is much different. It involves drugs, falling out with the church after being conformed, car crashes and intrigue. As the Bible says loosely, we all do the same things, so who are you to pass judgment. I also should be living a quiet life, so maybe i should stop talking unless necessary. This site isnt really necessary, i just like the Wu Clans music.
