CHEATING RUNS IN THE FAMILY ACCORDING TO STUDY

CHEATING RUNS IN THE FAMILY ACCORDING TO STUDY CHEATING : Researchers surveyed people about their parents’ and their own history of infidelity. Nearly half of the subjects who were raised by philandering parents admitted to having cheated on a partner—making them twice as likely to stray as those brought up in a faithful family. That puts your mom and dad’s union right up there with the top predictors of infidelity, like your own relationship satisfaction and your personality, says study author Dana Weiser, Ph.D. The tendency to sleep around is…

Religious countries likely to perform worse in science and maths, study finds Research also finds women generally more religious than men Students in religious countries are likely to perform worse in science and maths than their more agnostic or atheist counterparts, new research has found. “Countries that are more religious score lower in educational performance,” the study’s co-author, Professor Gijsbert Stoet, told The Independent. As a result he advised that “governments that might be able to raise educational standards and so standards of living by keeping religion out of schools and out of educational policy-making.”…

Quantum tractor beam could tug atoms, molecules

Quantum tractor beam could tug atoms, moleculesdouble-slit experiment

Quantum tractor beam could tug atoms, molecules Electron beams could enable ‘matter wave’ treknology, theoretical study suggests The wavelike properties of quantum matter could lead to a scaled-down version of Star Trek technology. A new kind of tractor beam could use a beam of particles to reel in atoms or molecules, physicists propose in the May 5 Physical Review Letters. Scientists have previously created tractor beams using light or sound waves, which can pull small particles a few millimeters or centimeters (SN: 11/15/14, p. 16). But “the idea of doing…

Religious People Much Happier Than Others, New Study Shows

Religious People Much Happier Than Others, New Study Shows A strong correlation exists between religiosity and personal happiness, according to a new study by the Austin Institute for the Study of Family and Culture. The study found that people who attend religious services on a weekly basis are nearly twice as likely to describe themselves as “very happy” (45%) than people who never attend (28%). Conversely, those who never worship are twice as likely to say they are “very unhappy” (4%) as those who attend services weekly (2%). Building on prior…

Atheists Are More Intelligent Than Religious People, According To Study

Atheists Are More Intelligent Than Religious People, According To Study According to a study of 63 different papers, atheists are generally more intelligent than religious people. Miron Zuckerman, Jordan Silberman and Judith A. Hall rounded up the results of multiple studies,the Independent reports, with the meta-analysis showing that there was a negative correlation between intelligence and those that follow a certain belief. “Using analytic (as opposed to intuitive) thinking, more intelligent college students may be more likely to eschew religion,” the study said. “If atheism is disapproved of at home,…

California fault capable of producing magnitude-7.4 earthquake, study says

California fault capable of producing magnitude-7.4 earthquake, study says   An earthquake fault running from San Diego Bay to Los Angeles is capable of producing a magnitude-7.4 earthquake that could affect some of the region’s most densely populated areas, according to a study released Tuesday. The study looked at the Newport-Inglewood and Rose Canyon systems — previously thought to be separate — and concluded they actually form a continuous fault that runs underwater from San Diego Bay to Seal Beach in Orange County and on land through the Los Angeles…

Religious people understand the world less, study suggests Religious people are more likely to have a poorer understanding of the world and are more likely to believe objects like rocks and paper have human qualities, scientists say. Researchers at the University of Helsinki compared believers in God or the paranormal to people with autism after finding they tend to struggle to understand the realities of the world around us. Religious beliefs were linked with a weaker ability to understand physical and biological phenomenon such as volcanoes, flowers, rocks and wind without giving them…

Banned chemicals persist in deep ocean

Banned chemicals persist in deep ocean

Banned chemicals persist in deep ocean Chemicals banned in the 1970 s have been found in the deepest reaches of the Pacific Ocean, a new study shows. Scientists were surprised by the relatively high concentrations of pollutants like PCBs and PBDEs in deep sea ecosystems. Used widely during much of the 20th Century, these chemicals were later found to be toxic and to build up in the environment. The results are published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution. The team led by Dr Alan Jamieson at the University of…
