This is why I find it hard to believe if he's being completely literal and without hyperbole. I doubt that the "full retard" kind of mentally handicapped people really have the capacity to ponder about existential subjects like religion and atheism and the like.

There's a difference between ignorance or plain stupidity and serious mental defects. And if you're diagnosing people over the internet, that's just silly.
But of course, there are lots of atheists that are dipshits, especially the teenage variety who are trying to be controversial, contrary, edgy, etc. And I've known plenty of religious people that are quite intelligent.
