One comment on “Why Are Atheists Generally Smarter Than Religious People?

  1. Two things come to mind: the concept of “faith” – essential to all religions, mitigates powerfully against individual reasoning. Religions are primarily made up of “mobs”, i.e., religious people exist in group think, are anti-individual and are more likely to support autocratic, dictatorial rulers because their gods are dictators of the highest order and believers are taught to trust and love their dictator(s). Rebellion against authority is forbidden in most religions and “slaves” are to serve their masters without complaining, regardless of how they are treated. Religion, the opiate of the masses.
