    Can you send me a link to that study, if it is on the web?

  • Michael Hunt says:

    Flawed. There aren’t enough atheists to account for 90% of drug abusers. Plus, in my life, the worst abusers tended to be hard-core christians. Drug abuse and christianity both fill the same psychological role.

    I wasn’t doing any drugs when I told my grandpa I didn’t belive in god(s). I was four.

    I am not doing any drugs now, either. I am 39.

  • sweetlilchickie1985 says:

    I have a memory of a PSA, I think it was the 1980s. It was? done something like this one. It was animated and it showed a little girl running around playing and then found a needle on the ground and she reached for it, but a grown up pulled her away from it and she walked away with them.

    To this day, I don’t remember what this ad was for or who sponsored it or anything. I get the feeling it was Canadian though. Any help would be appreciated!
