David Ray, "I believe in God. If believing in God makes you dumb then wouldn't it follow that all atheists here have even higher scores, better sheepskins, and far more successful careers and much higher salaries than me? Where did you go to college, atheist or theist? What degrees do you have? Which IQ text did you take and what was your score? What do your answers say not only in regard to the original question but to the various answers here given? I think that would be a better gauge than anything else."
My, my, Princess. Such a fit pitch. Apparently Rice, FSU and Columbia didn't require you to take any Research or Statistics classes, nor complete a thesis - or you weren't paying attention during these typically semester long classes. If you were you would know that a population of ONE (you) is NOT a statistically valid sample. If you were paying attention on this site (I'm sensing a theme here), you would note that these studies were qualified as showing correlations over large populations and, in most cases, looked at data over multiple years and multiple countries.
There are many such studies, and they have been conducted by researchers and scientists with PhDs and extensive experience in these fields.
That's all we have stated. There are obviously very intelligent and educated theists. If you want to see some of the studies, just ask. No one has insulted your education; we have insulted you. And a lot of us have degrees, advanced degrees and high IQs.
