Distrust Feeds Anti-Atheist Prejudice - Miller-McCune Research finds atheists are widely perceived as untrustworthy, which may be a factor in why they're disliked more than other minorities. http://www.miller-mccune.com/.../distrust-powers-anti-atheist-preju...
"People use cues of religiosity as a signal for trustworthiness," the researchers write in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Given that “trustworthiness is the most valued trait in other people,” this mental equation engenders a decidedly negative attitude toward nonbelievers.
There is no actual evidence backing up the assumption that atheism somehow leads to a decline in morality. In a 2009 study, sociologist Phil Zuckerman argued that "a strong case could be made that atheists and secular people actually possess a stronger or more ethical sense of social justice than their religious peers," adding that they, on average, have "lower levels of prejudice, ethnocentrism, racism and homophobia" than the much larger population of believers.

@Geraldo Cienmarcos

I just revisited the Project 2048 url that you posted in January, it doesn't appear to have the Human Rights info anymore.

For some reason, they've placed here: http://www.law.berkeley.edu/2048/

With my deep interest in nature, education and freethinking I think these camps are excellent steps in the right direction.  I can imagine directing one.  We need more.

Project 2048: Human Rights as Law.

 

[I think all of our Humanist organizations around the world should be signing on to this. Can we start a process to get all of our international affiliate free thought and humanist organizations to endorse this effort? - Gary]

http://www.2048.berkeley.edu/

The 2048 Project's mission is to educate students and the public about the evolution of human rights, and to provide a process to draft an International Bill of Rights that will be enforceable in the courts of all countries by the year 2048, the 100th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Yeah a synopsis isn't a bad idea. I'll try to do that later when I have more time.

@Wanderer: I don't have a lot of extra time on my hands. Most people present a synopsis of the material they attach in association with their discussions. I am wondering if you could do this and then we could reference the paper for more detailed analyses. It might also help catch the interest of others.
