Turkish sociologist declares that all children with autism are atheists and atheism is a form of autism

That’s the opinion of Fehmi Kaya, head of the Health and Education Associations for Autistic Children in Adana, Turkey. Autistic children are atheists, he said, “due to a lack of a section for faith in their brains.”
From TimeTurk (English edition) 4/22/13:
“Autistic children do not know believing in God because they do not have a section of faith in their brains,” Kaya said, according to daily Milliyet.
Kaya said the underdevelopment of faith sections in the brain caused autistic children to not believe in God.
“That is why they don’t know how to pray, how to believe in God. It is needed to create awareness in these children through methods of therapy.”
Kaya added that autistic children should undergo treatment to “create areas of faith in their brain.”
Apparently, it’s not the children’s fault. According to Kaya whose degree is in sociology, they are born atheists because of the missing faith section. “Research,” he adds, “says atheism and autistic children are linked. Researchers in the USA and Canada say thatatheism is a different form of autism.”
A backlash from individuals and autism associations throughout Turkey has caused Kaya to complain that his remarks were taken out of context by news reports.


  1. Wow! You can't make this stuff up. Did he receive his degree in the middle ages, or is that the education level for Turkey?

  2. What's missing in his brain, the stupid dipstick.

  3. Sounds like the opinion of someone with shit for brains.

  4. "the missing faith portion"

    "therapy to create areas of faith in their brain"

    turkey has a vaccine program too?

    eliminate then recreate.

    how special.

  5. It has recently been discovered by atheists that the religious people suffer from the most common form of retardation.
    Religion and retardation allway's go hand and hand and if you suspect some you know of having it.. Make sure they don't breed often times its genetic!

  6. Totally dense! Wonder what this jerk would say about Buddhism? About the concept of a learned faith? About many of us who begin as unbelievers, then change, or the opposite? Let's just hope he sees the light soon or shuts up.
