Abstract

30 Ss from 3 student religious groups (Student Christian Movement, Evangelical Union, Newman Society) and 10 atheist students judged the logical validity of 24 religious syllogisms and 16 neutral syllogisms. Results indicate that Ss' evaluation of the religious syllogisms is influenced by their religious attitude, critical ability, and intolerance of ambiguity; that the fundamentalist EU group is highest in dogmatism and intolerance of ambiguity and the atheist group lowest; and that Ss high in intolerance of ambiguity tend to be relatively low in critical ability. 1967 Australian Psychological Society
