Justin I usually agree with your posts, but I must point out a flaw in your statistical logic. Just because this study showed that atheists are a higher IQ on average (shown in multiple studies, not just this one), doesn't mean that someone with a higher IQ is more likely atheist. In the US there are more people that are Christian than atheist, and given a reasonable standard deviation (not sure what it actually is) there may be more high IQ Christians than atheists, making someone with a higher IQ more likely Christian. Your mistake is a common one in statistics, a study may show A associated with B, but you can`t make statements then judging B vs A.

There goes Crakr, moving the goalposts again. And Justin, IQ tests are a sh*tty measure of actual intelligence.

Kudos educating yourself, but you are the exception, not the rule and you know it. You realize you're just trying to combat my rebuttal because you`ve stepped into a belief of atheist elitism now, which is promoting prejudice against deists.

Justin: Now, You can take your asinine assumptions about me and other Christians, eat them, and apologize or confirm that you're just a ideologue and a bigot.

Your choice.

Justin: The $26,000 figure is 'total household income`, not individual income. Please don`t be deceptive by doubling it.

How you phrase it, the poor seem to be banned from knowledge.

I didn`t say `banned` and I said, `Higher Education`, not knowledge.

Most people, according the other link, are NOT lower middle class and no amount of deceptive math on your part will change that.

Kudos educating yourself, but you are the exception, not the rule and you know it. You realize you`re just trying to combat my rebuttal because you`ve stepped into a belief of atheist elitism now, which is promoting prejudice against deists.

I could likely find a similar graph to this one based on ethnicity, but if so, promoting it would be racist now wouldn`t it ?

My average IQ score is 150, grew up lower middle class, have a college degree and I`m Christian.
