now THAT is one hell of a way to make money
I like how the athiest and agnostic bowls look like they have more money in them
what is that in the buddist bowl
a … hair tie? for a bald man?!
Hahaha the Jewish bowl…
And hey, those proportions are all totally based on which religions are most generous to the homeless, and not at all based on the concentration of people of those religions in downtown Austin, Texas (which is where it says he is here). No, clearly the evidence is conclusive: Hindus, and Jews are the least generous people in the whole world.
The fact that Jews make up approximately only 2.0% of the population of Travis County (where Austin is), Muslims make up 0.4%, and there are only 3 Hindu congregations in the whole county (the percent of constituents is not available), all while the “unclaimed” population (which include atheists, agnostics, ‘spiritual,’ and any other religion or denomination not listed among the 188 in the survey) is approximately 54% of the population. (Statistics from here - and I’m sorry I got any of the numbers wrong).
I mean, those statistics are from the year 2000 and out of date, right? And everything has surely sHiFted ARouNd in terms of religious adherence percentages since then, right?
And there are no other factors that might contribute to who in each religion donates money. Nothing like how the 20% of the population that is Catholic could significantly consist of Hispanic immigrants, who may not be able to afford to play this donation game. Possibly, though the poor are not always the ones who are the most stingy with their money.
So… yay atheists are winning!
