Why more intelligent people tend to be atheistic — ScienceDaily

The question about why more intelligent people tend to be atheistic dates back to the times of Romans and Ancient Greeks. The link between intelligence and religion can be explained if religion is considered an instinct, and intelligence the ability to rise above one’s instincts.

  1. What a great topic to debate. Sadly though, intelligence doesn’t seem to factor into it. Take Einstein and many other great minds, all religious. I am not religious at all and subscribe to Richard Dawkins’s philosophies on the matter. YouTube some of his talks, very bright boy.

    1. I thought the idea of religiousness as an instinct was a novel view but if that was the case, there is certainly more involved that the ability to overcome instinct. Personally, I subscribe to the school of thought that atheism is a form of faith (I’ve seen some atheists that give some of the worse Christians a run for their money)
