Research Show that Religious People Are Happier
When facing a conflict or difficult situations, people who are religious are more able to survive and continue to feel happiness compared to those who are atheists.
A research by a team from the University of Illinois with the Gallup Organization, was later published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, August 2011.
Researchers analyze data collected from 2005 to 2009 on people in 150 countries who speak about religion, life satisfaction, and social support.
In general, researchers found that religion provides emotional support when basic needs like food, jobs, safety, and education are not met.
Religious people tend to feel more valued and have fewer negative feelings than those who are not religious.
