Well, as a well known scientific expert, I can tell you that indeed almost all if not all atheists are far smarter than theists. So there you have it from a well known scientific expert.

Sorry Daniel, as a theist I have to give you thumbs down.  You simply like to go into a bar in a bad neighborhood and spit in their faces.

Most recent scientists are agnostic or atheist.  There is a reason for that (they are overly rational).

I don't ask person X, who has no expertise in Y ... about Y.  I find an expert in Y.

I thought that this is an Atheists Forum.

What "everyone knows" is often incorrect.

But I don't understand, this should be an "Atheist Forum", I thought that people will be happy to read researches showing that atheists are much smarter then religious people.

So where am I wrong?

Everyone knows that it's true.

I don't have anything in common with other atheists other than a lack of belief in the supernatural.

Just like only for you only thing you have in common with any other human is that you're breathing, so it is with from atheist to atheist.

Atheism isn't some special club with set rules and ideologies. It is merely the lack of belief in the supernatural, and that is the only thing in common.

I suspect that the average person who doesn't believe in Santa Claus is smarter than the average person who does believe in Santa Claus. But I've never done a scientifically controlled study, so I can't be sure.

So what?

That's just a statistical correlation.

You still have not told us who you are (you are actually supposed to intro yourself and make 10 posts prior to starting a new thread)--so, an intro would be nice.

Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I feel it's a shame the intro page won't stop anyone posting elsewhere before they have made 10 there.
