    Believers in Heaven More Likely to Commit Crimes??? WHAT???

    Hello everyone,

    I was going through the news today and I was stunned when I found this article by CBS Seattle News. It would seem that some muslim college proffessor Azim Shariff and a coleague have published a study in the scientific journal PLoS from the University of Oregon.

    Clip from link below:

    Study shows belief in heaven and hell had significant, unique, and opposing effects on crime rates,” Shariff and Rhemtulla found in the study. “Belief in hell predicted lower crime rates … whereas belief in heaven predicted higher crime rates."

    Read the entire study posted in the scientific journal PLoS One below titled "Divergent Effects of Beliefs in Heaven and Hell on National Crime Rates":

    If this isn't NWO United Nations, aka Government sponsored propaganda garbage trying to push an anti-religious doctrine, then I'm a Chineese General. Are these two fools seriously trying to say that believing in GOD and HEAVEN leads to higher crime rates?
    Are you kidding me CBS Seattle News?? Are you really trying to say christianity is responsible for high crime rates after some ungodly muslim cult member prints an article in a scientific journal?
    I mean haven't you read the 10 commandments? People who follow the religious laws given to Moses by GOD himself do not become criminals!!

    10 Commandments Exodus 20:1-17

    (1)“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me."

    (2)“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments."

    (3)“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain."


    (4)“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it."

    (5)“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you."

    (6)“You shall not murder."

    (7)“You shall not commit adultery."

    (8.)“You shall not steal."

    (9)“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."

    (10)“You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.”


    Can someone please help me preach here, how can anyone following those 10 commandments possibly have anything to do with causing higher crime rates? Perhaps CBS Seatle should spend more time reading the bible and less time reading garbage NWO propaganda.

    God Bless
