Inspired by several comments on polls regarding religion: Are atheists smarter than those who believe in God?
Seriously? This sounds like some kind of elementary school playground disagreement with one group of kids looking for something to taunt other kids about. It's a step above "my dad can beat up your dad!"
Maybe not smarter but certainly favor logic over faith.
I've always found it fascinating the atheists claim exclusivity over logic and reason the same way the faithful claim exclusivity over salvation.
I don't think there's a right or wrong answer. But being arrogant is always problematic.
Not inherently, but in my experiences atheists tend to be smarter.
No, they (Athiests) mock their beliefs (Christians) and come across as arrogant. And (Christians) just preach at (Athiests) and come across as self righteous. And both push their agenda/beliefs on others. Yet accuse each other of this. And blame
religion for the self righteous people, wars, and the oppressed for 1,000,000, years. My opinion is they both sound like Fundamentalist idiots. I just think you're intolerant. I know all of them aren't like that, but they make them look bad
I question God's existence, but I keep my mouth shut, because, I figure people don't want to hear my comments, I hate talking about religion unless forced to, I always repeat myself, I'm starting to bore myself now. I sound like a broken record now
That was pretty good. You nailed it pretty well.
They think they are.
I think there's a correlation, but I don't think either is necessary for the other. You don't have to be atheist to be intelligent and you don't have to be religious to be dim.
Nope. Neither theists nor atheists are more intelligent based solely upon respective (a)theisms.
How would they be smarter? I don't understand.
Me either, but that is the claim by some.
That makes no sense.
If anything, it's the other way around.
And you guys are so humble too...
That's my honest opinion. Don't like it, to bad for you.
There are smart and dumb in both groups :)
That's very true
What an arrogant view to hold. No.
I thought so too
