No, I think it's written somewhere...

Colossians 2:8

King James Version (KJV)

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

thats why the study and reactions are funny cat. if someone posted a "study" that said religious people were smarter don't you think you would go oh wait a sec or look at who did the study and find a way to diminish it?

 

i will add though that i consider being called religious a negative thing. i don't want to be or appear religious because to me those guys are wooden and don't change and aren't open to helping others and are locking more into traditions than God.

 

but that's another thread.

I actually thought about that. I'd look into the study and see how reliable it was, however I wouldn't just say, they must be bias and dismiss it.

Am I the only Athiest on this board? As for intelligence, I've always scored high ninety percentile on standardized tests growing up and 5 years ago took the Wechsler Adult intelligence test administered by UNO over two days and scored High Superior. Also I am pretty successful at my work so all in all the article seems pretty dead on.

I'd look at the methodology before concluding that, actually, and try to explain the results with logic based on the writing of what was done rather than "well clearly the authors are just bias."

 

Then again, I'm a bias non believer.
