Liberals tending to have higher IQs is new news to me. Can't say that I'm surprised about atheists having higher IQs though. In fact, that's what I surmised all along given that it takes a lot of stupidity to believe in a fairy tale book that a bunch of hippies wrote a few hundred years ago in order to soothe their inquiring minds on the reason for their existence.

It also says being a prude means you're smarter as well.

i've always hated talking to staunch anything, liberal or conservative, because all their opinions are spoon-fed to them. their intellect has always seemed to be of the pseudo variety. but perhaps i'm just not smart enough to understand them.

IQ is for idiots who say there smart from a bunch of quick puzzles. So I guess all those religious buddhists in china and hindus in india are all a bunch of retards compared to you fat smelly twats sitting on your ass all day doing a fucking suduko. I did one of those IQ tests and got a score of 144, saying im genius or above average and I most certainly believe in god. Stop feeding athiests trolls who think there better than thiests just because science has proven most religious ideas wrong and use this to say that there is no god.

To all the idiots who think that a IQ determines your "Common Sense", "Experience", etc, wake up.
IQ just determines your academic smarts, nothing more.

I hate people who turn into Athiests and rub it in everyone's face because they think not believing in God makes them badass and independent.

I'm a Athiest, and I don't go around calling anyone with religion retards and proceed to prove them wrong.

Man, god doesn't exist, it was just an excuse for "Priests" to make more money in the medieval times. The big bang is the truth!

Wow, you sound like an extremely smart person. Perhaps if you'd actually research some of these "Fairy Tales," you'd find an equal number of proofs pointing in the direction of God being factual.
Any manner of belief structure can seem unstable when picked apart...
OH YES MR SCIENTIST, I'M SO GLAD CLOUDS OF MICROSCOPIC PARTICLES SOMEHOW MANAGED TO MANIFEST THEMSELVES INTO BEING! I GUESS SINCE THEY WERE SO MINUSCULE THEY NEED NOT EVER HAVE A BEGINNING. ( I prefer Clifford the Big Red Dog over that previous fairy tale I summed up for you.)

"What the thinker thinks, the prover proves."
Accepting any manner of belief blindly (yes even my Atheist friends who rely on only the most selective concepts of science to decorate their understandings with) without actually experimenting YOURSELF to see just what is possible, is foolish. It is of imperative importance one goes beyond the books of any creed, be it religious or science, and experiments themselves.

Read The Bible, The Torah, The Qur'an, attempt a prayer of some intervention. If that's not your style, utilize some literal Mind over Matter techniques to see if you, yourself can bring about change in conformity with your own will.
Just don't jam up and become one of the many who are so scared to try anything that might actually cause their previous understanding of reality to shatter.

As for myself, I was an Atheist for quite a long time, and quite a devious one at that, but instances can change an individual.
while I may still be a Liberal, (and quite devious,) my Friend, I am as well Christian after enough amazing instances changed me from Atheist.

Also, My IQ is about 125. (Some tests have pointed to 120, others 130, so I'll play it safe and leave it at 125)
Still perhaps I'm just a diamond in the rough, or too busy being brain washed from my fairy tales.

It's funny because Christians hate hippies.

Wisdom and intelligence aren't found in books. They aren't measured by tests which in themselves are prone to fallacy and misrepresentation -they were written by people. Gathering intelligence is a lifelong journey. To say that one person is more intelligent than another is to be blind to the fact that learning takes time. Each of us is now in a different state, a different place along the number line of learning.

Also, god isn't a fallacy for idiots. God is an idea as old as man, used to illuminate basic truths about human nature, and nature in general. We fucked up when we decided to name god, and give him (or her, or it) a personality.

-personal belief: god is the sum of all energy and decay, life and death on planet earth. He is everywhere, in everything and simultaneously nowhere and nothing. God is gravity, god is freefall. God is whatever you make it to be. Each person's perception defines their reality. The mind is the origin where all dimensions meet. In essence, each and every one of us is god, or a god, in that we are a part of god and god is a part of us. He is the most evil, and the most benevolent. Jesus and Satan are just 2 sides of the same coin.


Boldest is he who refuses see what has once come and is to be.

Atheists tend to be smarter because they don't leave everything to their higher power, they take charge.

Also, when people say that IQ is stupid and that they have "street smarts", street smarts is just their way of defending themselves and making them look even slightly smart.

Yes I am an atheist.

Phew, what a long and depressing post!!

This makes no sense.


God is an idea as old as man, used to illuminate basic truths about human nature, and nature in general.

The idea of a god hasn't produced a single tangible advancement that I'm aware of.


-personal belief: god is the sum of all energy and decay, life and death on planet earth. He is everywhere, in everything and simultaneously nowhere and nothing. God is gravity, god is freefall. God is whatever you make it to be. Each person's perception defines their reality. The mind is the origin where all dimensions meet.

Jesus and Satan are just 2 sides of the same coin.

Again, an idea with 0 explanatory power. Useless.

I had heard about that before, but I was pretty surprised to see it actually be confirmed. I can understand the liberals having higher IQ's, but it is interesting how atheists do it as well. That reminds me of something I heard on Snopes about a report that talked about how there was something circulating about all the Democrats having high IQ's, but I guess the people who made that have the right idea.
