Atheists happy too

“Confident nonbelievers” are just as satisfied with their lives and emotionally stable as religious people, suggests a study by Luke Galen, associate professor of psychology at Grand Valley State University, Allendale, Mich. It’s the spiritual seekers who tend to be unstable, according to the report. Galen said results of the Non-Religious Identification Survey show that “the common assumption of great religiosity relating to great happiness and satisfaction is overly simplistic.”
