Atheists are more intelligent than religious people
Writing in the Freethinker (July 2008) Chris Barker argues that there is nothing racist about suggesting that atheists are more intelligent than believers.
IT was bound to happen. When Professor Richard Lynn claimed last month that people with higher IQs were less likely to believe in God many of those outraged by his assertion quickly tried to give his words a racist cast.
Professor Lynn, Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Ulster University, said many more members of the “intellectual elite” considered themselves atheists than the national average. A decline in religious observance over the last century was directly linked to a rise in average intelligence, he claimed.
Professor Lynn, who has provoked controversy in the past with research linking intelligence to race and sex, said university academics were less likely to believe in God than almost anyone else.
A survey of Royal Society fellows found that only 3.3 per cent believed in God – at a time when 68.5 percent of the general UK population described themselves as believers. A separate poll in the 90s found only seven percent of members of the American National Academy of Sciences believed in God.
Professor Lynn said most primary school children believed in God, but as they entered adolescence – and their intelligence increased – many started to have doubts.
He told The Times Higher Education magazine:
Why should fewer academics believe in God than the general population? I believe it is simply a matter of the IQ. Academics have higher IQs than the general population.
Several Gallup poll studies of the general population have shown that those with higher IQs tend not to believe in God.

My problem with the CIA World Factbook is that, unlike every other source of U.S. government statistics that I know of, they provide no metadata--no indication of who collected the data or how it was analyzed. For that reason, I regard it as a less reliable source of religion statistics than the Pew Forum or the American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS).
We could also use Dim's logic when faced with statistics showing religious belief among US prisoners:

It seems very hard to conclude that atheists are under-represented in American prisons. They may, or may not, have failed to mention their atheism to authorities. In other words, the statistics are inconclusive.
Sorry, my mistake. Dim doesn't come up with his own ideas, he copies and pastes other peoples thinking.

Ah, the magic decoder ring apologetic, how lame!

Blessed are the weak minded as they are easily controlled by the scam of religion(s). Their gullibility and sheep mentality makes it real easy to keep them content with being poor by promising a paradise in some next life. Snake oil salesmanship at it's finest.

Poor baby! Can't handle Christian based proof?

Why do you waste so much time trying to prove God doesn't exist? I don't waste anytime proving gremlins don't exist. I could not care less if someone said they did exist. You fight God only because you know he's real. It's the only thing that could explain your obsession with it.

Going by that logic you must believe macro evolution to be accurate and true.

Again Christian opinion websites are not a bias free source so they are rightfully ignored. Any bias free verified source for your ignorant statement? The same one that claims agnostics do not exist?

christians were gassing the jews, and non believers, in the 2nd world warThe Holocaust was caused by Christian fundamentalism:



History is currently being distorted by the millions of Christians who lie to have us believe that the Holocaust was not a Christian deed. Through subterfuge and concealment, many of today’s Church leaders and faithful Christians have camouflaged the Christianity of Adolf Hitler and have attempted to mark him an atheist, a pagan cult worshipper, or a false Christian in order to place his misdeeds on those with out Jesus. However, from the earliest formation of the Nazi party and throughout the period of conquest and growth, Hitler expressed his Christian support to the German citizenry and soldiers.

Hi, do you think these churches that claim to be Christians are the body of Christ. Adolf Hitler was an evil man of the RCC's. He was no more a Christian then the man on the moon. A true Christian will not shed another man's blood. No true Christian would even hate another man, hatred is the same as murder in the eyes of the God of Spiritual Israel.

A true Christian trusts and obeys the commandments of God according to his new everlasting covenant, that many churches deny today. If my country goes to war and under there laws I am ordered to go, that sin is not on me, but that country. If we obey the laws of the nations we live under, we are obeying commandments of God of Spiritual Israel.

Look what the so called Christians of this nation have done (USA) to the Indian's and to the blacks and their own people (North and South) and also those of their native country, England.

Holocaust was no made by the God of Spiritual Israel. Look who is the God of these many Christians churches are. The believe Satan is still their father and prince. They still live in darkness.

As I said, they deny the everlasting covenant and are trying to get to heaven through another door.

I will say this again, everyone that came into the new world 2012 years ago was a Christian, no matter what they call themselves today. You are and others are hating the wrong God. A true Christian knows there is only one God the Father and one Lord Jesus Christ. His new name is Lord God Almighty and the Lamb, everlasting Father in the Holy Ghost.

When I look that the works and words of all these religions today. I see the works of Sation, their father. They curse Hilter, but they are no different.

The true name of Spiritual Israel is LOVE. Love by the Holy Spirit. I don't see this love of his today.

People are hating the wrong God. No nation will stand by shedding of another mans blood.

Yes Hitler was a Christian. He wasn't a good Christian but he was a Christian.

In fact he famously called the Jews Christ killers and he was going to get revenge for what they had done to Jesus.

This is a fact.

Hi, the fact is, those were not the Jews who killed Christ in the end of that old world. Christ forgive them on his cross when he said, forgive them father for they know not what they have done. It was God the Father that sent his Son to die on the cross and Jesus give his life freely, no man took his life. Even Moses said, one would come like me and he will be your deliver. Christ said, there is no greater love, then for a man to lay done your life for your brethren. Those men lose their lives for his name sake.

It is sad to see how many agreed with him. People are just as evil as he was today. They will continue to kill each other in all nations.

It doesn't matter what the bible myth says my non English speaking reject. All that matters is that Hitler considered himself a dedicated Christian who was going to make the Jews suffer for the supposed sins of their past.

In fact I have heard christians argue that God was indeed working through Hitler because while the holocaust was horrible it allowed the Jews to reclaim Israel.

Hi, all you say, shows you don't know anything about God's people, the chosen, elect, and the faithful which is the Spiritual Nation of Israel in the life of Christ today. The Spiritual Nation of Israel consist of all men, Jews and Gentiles, with their wives and children, that came through the flood and fire at the end of that old evil world in the life of Christ. They live in all nations under heaven and speak every tongues under heaven.

The nation of Israel is not a piece of land. God said, there is a land called Israel and there is a nation of Israel (Jacob, his name was changed to Israel).

Hilter was an evil man and he got his just reward and others are getting there today.

Like I said before, everyone that came into his new world 2012 years ago was a Christian NO matter what they call themselves today. We were all one in the Spiritual Nation of Israel. Many have left him for all these false gospels, doctrines and spirits that have raised up in all nation.

There is NOT one man that does know the LORD of Heaven and earth. They may deny him, but they know when.

You can deny the NT (the word of God) in the precious blood of Christ and also the everlasting covenant that he made with new Israel in the beginning of this new world. Truth will always be here, even after you are gone. The LOVE of Truth is in his people, forever and ever, world without end.
