Well, Psychology Today isn't a blog and there have been other studies published in journals that make the same claims.  One study about atheism and intelligence was actually written by the same guy who said black women were the least attractive of all women.  While I do believe the study claiming black women are inherently ugly was of a very poor design and based more on opinion, rather than fact, I tend to look at atheism a bit differently.  There is a clear pattern, here, of secular nations having lower crime rates, a tendency to provide good health care to citizens, and a tendency to be economically more stable than nations that are not.

Yes but the link posted is a blog. Its in the URL

And the logical fallacy that I mentioned in my last post Is that just because 2 things are correlated doesnt mean that one causes the other
Thats an incorrect conclusion to jump to. But the mistake is made everywhere.

Of course this is true.
 
What did Salin call Religion? 'It's the opium of the masses'. Confused
 
Duh! Just keep ém all doped up ... praying away their troubles instead of taking hold of them themselves.

Well the entire point of intellectualism is to question ideas, so it makes sense that people who tend to be intellectual question religion, social norms, and anything in relation to the status quo.  I think a lot of people don't admit this in public settings for fear of offending religious people.  I believe our president is atheist or at least agnostic.  Remember his statement about the rural population of Pennsylvania, "clinging to their Bibles and guns?"

What do you guys think of this comment:

Hardly suprising. Religious people are required to 'believe' not to think. The poorest and least educated countries are most religious. More education and wealth and... well, people start thinking about other things than sickness and hunger. I imagine that in 500 years people will thing about us the same way as we think about ancient Greeks believes in Zeus, Hera and other gods... as stories for children, interesting but not real.

Um, yeah.  Because what it is saying is that people who tend to question social norms more, tend to be more intelligent.  If you notice, there aren't very many devoutly religious people in the scientific community.  Ask yourself why that is.

Do you think people in medical fields are less likely to question things than people in scientific research?

Doctors go through a whole lot of science training but do you think the distinct between it be focused on practice rather than research makes it less likely for them to question religion?

Just wondering why my doctors always seem to be devoutly religion, whereas my research professors are not.
