It Is Irrelevant That Atheists Are Smarter Than Religious People

Paarsurrey says:
Very good points.

• “So even if many intelligent people believe that there is no God, we cannot ever be sure, because there is no reliable scientific evidence”

Paarsurrey: I agree with this point. Being an intelligent human being does not mean that one is necessarily right also.

• “After all, science has taught us that the earth is billions of years old, so it seems likely that the Bible at least wasn’t right about everything.”

Paarsurrey: Very truly said; the teachings of Bible originally were truthful; with the passage of time the narrators of the scribes added things or took away things; or interpreted things wrongly.

• “Religion had developed flaws, and just like in every other time, the brighter minds decided that an alternative was needed to get rid of those flaws.”

Paarsurrey: It was not appropriate to find the alternative; instead they should have preferred to cut-off the dry branches yet saving the tree itself. There could be no alternative of the Word of Revelation.
The flaws could be weeded out.

• “Whether we’re talking about Aristotle, Einstein or Hitler, they were all extremely intelligent and fit that description perfectly.”

Paarsurrey: The later scientific search found out the mistakes they have made; yet everybody respects them for the contribution they had made to the human knowledge.

• “Some atheists have become precisely that which they have always fought against: closed-minded.”

Paarsurrey: There are a lot many of close-minded Atheists; one can see them on the internet; arrogant and deriding all the time; yet they claim to be Humanists.

• “The idea that this somehow justifies their claims and makes them in the right seems to be a popular way to interpret these results.”

Paarsurrey: I agree with you.

Ever since the Huffington Post revealed a study that shows atheists are more intelligent than theists, many atheists have been padding themselves on the back. The idea that this somehow justifies their claims and makes them in the right seems to be a popular way to interpret these results, but as appealing as that conclusion might be, perhaps it’s a bit premature.

In the past month I have made numerous posts criticising atheism. I don’t do that because I think atheism is wrong or because I feel like religion is right, but I do that because, as always, whenever something becomes the dominant way of thinking, it becomes ignorant. Just like certain parts of feminism, some atheists have become precisely that which they have always fought against: closed-minded.

The problem here is that the results of the study aren’t being thought about in a rational manner. They are…
