Not quite sure what that article is trying to convey.
I guess it takes a firm belief in the invisible magician to properly sell a gun online. Who knew?-Shawna

You and me both.
Stroop Effect

This was the test they were given. So I guess, according to the article, they didn't beat themselves up as badly when they messed up compared to atheists. This could mean a lot of things apparently.

It seemed to say that religious zealotry has a calming effect (like a drug?) making people less concerned with mistakes or something. But also less likely to change if they do make mistakes. Anxiety can be good.
That was what I got from it anyhow. Interesting idea.

Haha, yeah and the belief god gives you super powers too. No matter how convincing you're still a tool.

James Randi's vids on faith healing are funny. To me.

Saying a religious man is happier than an atheist is like saying a drunk man is happier than a sober.
