This is an odd one.
Tom Rees is reporting on research carried out in China which indicates atheists are quicker at recognising their own face.
The research also revealed Christians feel less positive about themselves than atheists do.
….the relatively low opinion Christians had of themselves was linked to their relatively tardy reactions on the self recognition test.
Both atheists and Christians had equally positive feelings about their friends.
There are some caveats to this research, but is intriguing nonetheless.
