Atheists are smarter
Creationists are smarter
Critical, skeptical thinking isn't easy. It's not that it's unnatural, but credulous attitudes are easier to adopt and maintain because they take less work. Skepticism requires some training, patience, and above all practice. Most of those who seek out such training and practice are involved in scholarly studies like philosophy, but everyone could benefit from them as well. Where can one start? I there is a God out there and/or just morals and values out there, if any of these things exist, wouldn't they be utterly useless and unintelligible to us. There is nothing to be gained by nostalgia for the old objectivism, which was in any case used only to justify arrogance, tyranny, and cruelty. People [forget] ... how utterly hateful the old pre-humanitarianism world was.
Atheists, because they are thinking rationally.
We are not retarded.
There is a positive correlation between higher education and atheism, meaning the higher your education the more likely you are to be atheist (and this is especially true for the scientific community). To explain this trend we need to understand that this is a causation effect. Meaning that people tend to become atheists with more education, not the other way around where atheists are more likely to pursue higher education. The exposure to lessons not taught in high school can change a person's beliefs. (Especially where non-traditional, non-creationist lessons are controversial in a school setting). Some studies in particular that can have an impact are anthropology, history, and science.
Im still laughing at the picture for the other option.
I hate religion, and its creationist dogma.
There have been many studies that show an inverse relationship between religiousness and intelligence, http://psr.sagepub.com/content/early/2013/08/02/1088868313497266.abstract Furthermore, seeing to what creationist want taught in schools under the guise of science I'd say that is a strong indication as well.
the atheist community is only smarter because all of us actually think on important topics a lot. we're not smarter because we're atheist but with atheism comes logic.
I voted this way just simply from my experiences on twitter
Atheists are skeptics so We do not simply believe things but we want them to be truth. We search for reasons. We go to the root of things in order to understand the properly. Theists are enclosed in ideal statements defending the sort of delusional arguments that be either be prove or disproved because trascend our capabilities. So, absolutely atheists are intellectuals theists are conformists
Science has evidence, I'm sure that there is no god up there
I HATE to choose one or the other because there should be no reason for one to be smarter that the other (unless you one of those asshats who wholeheartedly believes religion=a complete inability to think logically).
They are both in many respects close-minded and dumb as f.uck. Honestly who gives a s.hit what "the Truth" is. Neither side will ever have or obtain all the answer's to life's mysteries including the Universe itself. I wish I could vote neutral on this so to pi.ss off the atheists I'll vote "No".
They are born with a closed mind? No, that's not true, how can they be born with a closed mind if they don't have a mind at all?
