Religious people are no more likely to act morally than the irreligious, according to a new study.
The study, ‘Morality in Everyday Life’, was published in the journal Science.
The study used text messaging to gather data from 1,200 people.
Among its conclusions, it found that “Religious and nonreligious participants did not differ in the likelihood or quality of committed moral and immoral acts.”
