People who are not religious know more about religion than people who are

In other words, grass is green.

To become an atheist, born into a religous family, is probably one of the hardest things to do from an intelligence standpoint. Atheist have the highest IQs of any other "religous" group. In other words...we're awesome.

It gives people hope. It's a fools hope but still hope which can make people happy. Like they saying goes, "ignorance is bliss".

wow...

Are you this bigoted towards any one else or do you save all of your contempt for those of us who made the choice to believe in God?

Idk what you're saying. Maybe you attempting at humor. If so sorry I'm not picking up on it :P

You asked what do humans have to be unhappy about. I say suffering and the awareness of mortality.

Being agnostic, I still agree with the quote that "religion keeps poor people from killing rich people"

That's about all it's good for.

Exactly. It's a way to control people who have nothing other than a promise that things will get better in another life controlled. Without it, there was no way to get people to do what those in power wanted. Most religious rituals can be explained if you use critical thinking. One example would be the Jewish Kosher diet. Had they had refrigerators back then, there probably wouldn't even be such a thing. These things don't come from God.

Not at all. Ive go no beef with someone who believes that Im wrong about any subject including my belief in God.

What I'm taking issue with is your intimations in this thread that people who believe are fooled by hope, or afraid of their own mortality, or are somehow less capable of critical thinking. The suggestion that those folk who choose to believe are mentally lesser is or that their choice wasn't a fully considered and well reasoned one patently offensive.
