Guilt Be Gone, Religion Makes You Happy

If you are observing Good Friday today, chances are you might be happier than non-believers. A recent study asserts that Europeans who believe in God are happier —whatever that means — than agnostics or atheists.

So how exactly did they measure happiness? The study, called Deliver us from Evil: Religion as Insurance, looked at how religion buffers the impact of stressful life events such as unemployment or divorce. Using subjective well-being, aka asking people about their feelings, the researchers found that religious people were more satisfied with their lives and handled disappointment better.

Do you find faith to be an effective insurance against the stresses of life? Are the religious just being naive to think that God will solve their problems, or is the purpose of religion to put things in perspective?
