Correlations of Religiosity and Societal Health

From The Journal of Religion and Society (2005):

The staudy done by Gregory Paul suggests that higher rates of belief in and worship of a creator correlate with higher rates of homicide, juvenile and early adult mortality, STD infection rates, teen pregnancy, and abortion in the prosperous democracies.

This contradicts Kent Hovind's assertation that evolution and the removal of Lord's Prayer is the downfall of American society, which is inaccurate and outdated.

Hey Corey,
It’s easy to contradict something Hovind says.
I am always amused/surprised/saddened that Hovind has as many supporters as he does.

Found your site from a pro-Hovind blog you posted to a few months ago.

Good stuff, I’ll be back!

Your "Kent Hovind's assertation" link is missing an i from statistics.

Thanks, I redid the link.
