Homeless man proves Atheists are more generous than Christians and Muslims

by | 16th, May 2013

RELIGIONS are often the first to point out how good charity is and that we should always reach out to those in need. However, one homeless chap has conducted an experiment which shows religious people aren’t taking their own advice.

The homeless man, as seen in a Reddit thread, bears a sign that says: “Which religion cares the most about the homeless?” There are nine begging bowls in front of him, each with money in them.

Each bowl is placed on top of a piece of paper bearing the words ‘Muslim’, ‘Atheist’, ‘Jewish’, ‘Buddhist’, ‘Spiritual’, ‘Agnostic’, ‘Pagan’, and ‘Christian’.

And who is donating the most money? Why, it happens to be the Atheists!

It is worth pointing out that the Buddhists seem to be rather generous too, but the Christians, Muslims and Hindus come out of the experiment very poorly indeed.

Of course, the man may be begging in an area where there are very few Christians and Muslims, or indeed, Atheists are suckers for showing off in the face of religion.

Either way, this isn’t exactly looking good for those with spiritual guidance.
