Spiritual People Are More Empathic

Ever since Galileo Galilei was punished by the Inquisition for claiming that the Earth revolves around the sun, the scientific community has not been very keen on religion, or its adepts, for that matter.

 

But the latest studies have shown that spiritual people are more empathic than logical, detailed-oriented ones….

 

According to a study conducted by a professor of philosophy, agnostics that prefer scientific reasoning over God theories are more likely to have a certain analytical intelligence.

Also, the researchers claim that women are more religious than their male companions, thus more capable of showing empathy and social ease.
