I made a mistake while posting here because I have been up for about 30 hours, that section of my post was copied and pasted from an email to an administrator of a forum asking for them to post my survey link.So again, apologies for the gross error.
As for my hypothesis, it is a very, very loose one. It is an exploratory study, so I have no idea how it will turn out, nor do I care to be honest which way the data goes. I am neither religious nor Atheist; however, from the literature I have read, and the studies I have looked at, I believe the evidence suggest that my hypothesis may be correct. Primarily, it is focussed on the psychology of belief and as such is highly theoretical in many cases dealing with theological issues rather than scientific ones.
The Msc I am doing is in Research Methods and statistics, as such, the 'quality' of the study is not so important, what is important is that any mistakes or methodological errors made are addressed in the write up. I only had 3 months to completely re-jig my project as an American University decided to try to charge me for use of a scale in my previous study which was ridiculous. So it is all very last minute, I just have to make do.
Thanks for the feedback!
