A recent study on the influence of religion on altruistic behavior among children was conducted by Dr. Jean Decety, at the Department of Psychology from University of Chicago along with an international team of scientists.
To test the correlation between religion and acts of kindness among kids, the scientists selected 1,170 children aged from five to twelve.
This large population of children belonged to six countries- Canada, China, Jordan, Turkey, USA and South Africa, creating a diverse mix.
The children were divided into three categories- Not religious, Christian and Islam.
Although the original sample included kids who were Hindus, Jews, Buddhists etc. yet they did not add up to a large enough sample size...
