SHOCKER: Religious People Happier Than Atheists

This kind of story falls under what I call the "turtle firefighter finally makes it to the conflagration" umbrella: A European study in Britain has illuminated an apparently jolting revelation: that those who have attached their hopes and ultimate fates to a purpose above and beyond the terra-firma seem to have a compartmentalized mechanism with which to deal with cataclysmic life events with greater ease.

One would think these conclusions could be gained by anecdotal observation. Apparently not. I'd be willing to hold out hope that one day, "glaring and prima facie reflections of a grand designer" will be found in the universe, its origins and the human genome as well.
