Religious People Are Less Intelligent Than Atheists, Concludes New Study

Recommended Posts

A quick search will reveal I listed just listed an office building at $1.49 M and Vacanf land zoned BC-1 for $875k just this morning, not exactly boarded up shacks and over $100k in commission when sold. FAIL!

 

Yawn.........

You can't blame everything on childhood conditioning. 

 

Any lingering effect of this is usually wiped out by the time a child reaches adolescence, the time that children figure out that mom and dad and the local minister don't truly know everything.

 

True for a lot of poeple but I think you may be underestimating the strength of some bubbles (lol) some people grow up in. I have friends to this day that live in the same bubble they grew up in. Same church, same friends, same preachers, same side of town, same view of their parents, same influences, their kids go to the same christian school they did.

would just like to say that "more intelligent" doesn't mean "better" and that a capacity for critical thinking (as jase mentioned) doesn't preclude one from ending up with many of the same shitty views as the "moral majority" (see: the new atheist movement)

wonders where agnostics fit into the study...but I really don't care enough to read it

 

Probably included with the atheists as they should be

 

You either believe an all powerful god created everything or you dont

No...it was simply a direct comparison.  The study's intent wasn't going to worry about them....and you can discern the intent of the study however you want.

No matter what you say, I'm still going to wear my black panthers t-shirt on sundays during the season.

 

This Black Panther t-shirt?

Agnostics= Atheists with no balls

 

I do not know if there is a deity of some kind or not.  I have no evidence of it, I don't live my life as if there is or not, and while I personally don't think that any supreme being or beings created the universe and everything in it, I'm not going to tell you positively I know no such deities exist.  Meh.  I just don't think I can personally know if deities do exist

You can get more technical if you really want to, but as far as 99% of the public is concerned you are completely atheist

Same here brother.

 

That is why I don't ridicule or judge those who believe whole heartedly those who don't.

 

Live your life the right way.....

theist= you believe in the existence of ___.

 

If the answer is yes you believe, you are a theist. If you don't believe, you're an atheist.
