"Belief in God doesn't deter a person from cheating on a test, unless that God is seen as a mean, punishing one, researchers say.Fairly interesting. As the saying goes: "We're not perfect, we're forgiven". It must be noted, however, that people who believe in a vengeful god may cause a lot of other problems.
On the flip side, psychology researchers Azim F. Shariff at the University of Oregon and Ara Norenzayan at the University of British Columbia found that undergraduate college students who believe in a caring, forgiving God are more likely to cheat.
No differences in cheating were found between self-described believers in God and non-believers."
