'Believers are happier than atheists'

A study in the Telegraph shows that believers are generally happier and better able to cope with life's setbacks, than atheists, and it gets better the more they pray and attend church.

Radiolab did a program on liars and lie detection. In it they mentioned that people who were good at self-deception were happier.


Certainly you can be happy without deceiving yourself, right? And you can deceive yourself and still be unhappy.

I have a strong suspicion that the most unhappy people in the world are also the most self-deceived.

Suppose you knew someone who was deceiving him or herself. What would you say to that person?
