  1. @ihtg – “does this make sense to you”

    difficult to know, ’cause they didn’t break the data down by ethnicity in the paper (which would’ve been nice). as staffan said on twitter: “Religious or not often coincide with Clannish and WEIRDO. A big and likely confound overlooked.”

    sounds like the muslim kids were particularly unaltruistic/harsh in punishing:

    “Children from religious homes—particularly Muslims—also showed a greater inclination to judge someone’s misdeeds as wrong and punish the perpetrators….

    “Muslim children on average gave the highest rankings and sought harsher punishments than either their Christian or secular counterparts. Decety says he is unsure why this is the case.”

    that could fit with clannishness, etc.
