Christians happier than atheists - on Twitter

According to a recent "study" - Christians use more 'loving' words on Twitter than atheists do, thus concluding, they are happier than atheists.

what say you? i think it's a crap study to be honest. just because someone is using a lot fluffy words doesn't make them a happy person.

  • I think a lot of Christians try to put themselves in a good light but, don't necessarily mean the words they post. Just like how "bless her heart" is really "fuck that bitch" in christian southern. And, "I'll pray for you" means "you disgust me".

  • it is a scientific clinical practice that analyzes handwriting and connects it to human psychology that can assess personality.


    On TWITTER? Do you realize what Twitter is? There is no 'handwriting" on twitter. It's on the internet FFS. You get a choice between a pre-programmed font.

  • Scholarly evidence has spoken,


    *twitter* can hardly be considered "scholarly". That's like calling McDonald's food "healthy".

  • Blessings and it doesn't mean what someone said about Southerners.
    -------------------------

    Sure it does. I've lived in the south for over 2 decades and have heard these backhanded expressions many times. Southern girls used to go to finishing schools to learn how to insult in the most ladylike fashion.

  • well...does that mean our resident troll is an unhappy person b/c she uses such hateful language?

    also, did Bible verses count? cause that seems unfair. just cause someone posts a bazillion tweets from the Bible (which can have some beautiful and loving language) makes them happier? BS

  • I think anyone who has to engage in an "us verses them" competition is unhappy.

  • The conclusion was a bit far fetched. There are other indicators for happiness than language.

    Obviously you don't use twitter, of the results would've been vastly different

  • I don't really think the two things--loving language and happiness--have anything to do with each other at all, no matter who is speaking, Christians or atheists.
