That part about people staying up later was spot on (I'm a f**kin night owl), but that "religious people tend to be less 'intelligent'" concept is complete bulls**t. I'm religious and my logic/reasoning is f**kin flawless.

On another note, if you wanna know who is stupid, check for the loud people.

If your logic/reason was flawless you would not be religious.

Sorry bro, you lose.

I think the better question for this article is exactly what is intelligence? Once you learn about IQ tests you learn that they are not accurate measures of a person's intelligence.

Is intelligence the blind memorization and manipulation of written doctrine to define your life and justify your actions? Because if it is than lawyers and religous people have a lot in common.

Is it the manipulation of masses of people to agree and support your cause? Because then you can lump the politicians, gang leaders, and preachers together.

If its the ability to intrinsically examine the principles that you have been raised with and discard what doesn't work ( i.e. atheism) than the atheist that come from religous backgrounds should be clumped with the people that change political parties, the criminals that come from straight-laced upbringings (or vice-versa), the hoe's that were supposed to wait for marriage, and the college graduates that statistically weren'y supposed to graduate high school or live past 21.

What I'm trying to say is that intelligence is far too complicated to believe that you can gauge it with a test and to varied to believe that a certain set of beliefs and /or behaviors go with it. And for all of the atheists that were quick to say that thier view is a sign of intelligence, Albert Einstein was very religous.

Why do people want to accumulate trivial 'facts' and opinions? Your not taking your 'smarts' with you. I don't take life as serious as you people.

funny things about atheists is that by denying that something exists or being anti-something you are actually validating the existence of sd thing........basically you cant have an anti- _____ movement if the _____ doesnt exist. you can only go againt the current if there is a current.

I'm Atheist, I'm Liberal, I scored pretty high on the ACT, Graduated with honors...yeah this article sounds about right...lol really though

I think there are smart atheist, dumb atheist, smart theist as well as dumb theist, but on average the atheist are smart. When it comes to liberal vs conservative, I think liberals win by a landslide just watch fox news.

I dont even know where to start.

To all the people saying that atheists are usually smart on average. There are way more religious people than atheists so I have no clue why your saying that like its going to affect anything lol. Its too much of a difference in numbers in the 2 groups to make a fair comparison when it comes to that.

Also there is a difference between someone who comes to a religion on their own and firmly believes it and one that comes to a religion based on others and is forced to believe it.

Also just because someone is an atheist that doesn't make them any better than someone who is religious.

Too much bias. Quite a lot of critically acclaimed scientists were/are religious heads.
Being a scientist is no indication you are a smarter person overall. You are just more knowledgeable in a particular field / discipline.

There are completely retarded atheists and the spectrum between smart and dumb religious people vs atheists will produce shockingly similar numbers.

Sorry to burst your bubble but atheism is not an indicator of superior mental capabilities.
Something has to be wrong with you if you believe in god. To believe in a imaginary deity thats all knowing and all powerful and can read your minds, and talk to you. You don't know where he/she/it is but yet you know that he/she/it is real..... that sounds like delusion to me ppl. Not sayin atheist are smarter but we are def. able to see things in a whole different light that theist cant because their thoughts are restricted due to their fear of hell.

Did you know that when you were born you were and atheists too? Some atheist are not anti-theist. I'm an anti-theist because of all of the harm religion does to us as species. Religious beliefs k!ll ppl and for what cuz someone dosnt want to believe in the same imaginary friend in the sky as you. Religion is not necessary it is holding us back.

Nothing is wrong with you if you "believe" in a God. God is a forming idea and still an actual possibility.

Whats to stop atheist thought from being restricted to to fear of them actually being wrong and the theistic belief actually being right?

When we were born we were more likely agnostic than atheist.

People k!ll people. The causes can come from anything even atheism as well. Your just biased to look at Religion because of your anti-theistic stance.

Religion is holding us back?
