GUEST,Wolfgang Obit: More Muslim intolerance? (589* d) RE: Obit: More Muslim intolerence? 18 Jan 05


I'm curious, Carol, have you any link to statistics or studies of what you call a fact (no greater per capita number of reprehensible acts...)?

I have no empirical knowledge on any relationship between religion and number of crimes but I would consider it very likely that religion, like nearly all other cultural or biological contexts, also influences the number of per capita crimes. Incidence of crimes is rarely statistically independent of age, gender, social standing of the offender. So why should it be independent in the case of religion?
