    @ Shinzy

    How does that make the study flawed? It's a very logical progression from low IQ to low education to more prone to religion.

    Sort of proves the study LESS flawed if you ask me.

    @ Lightning From the East

    Creation scientists cannot be trusted in their vies.

    They do not conduct any experiments with an open mind because it has already been tainted with religion.

    Your list of them is worthless.

    Actually, some studies have shown that some of the more exceptionally devout types of religious people tend to have HIGHER than average IQs. This is ironically what keeps them sticking to their dogma, because they're able to rationalize away oppositions and doubts that come up. As Michael Shermer once said, they tend to be very smart people who came to believe in something for rather dumb (emotional) reasons.

  • Yes. People have done studies on that sort of thing. That's not to say everyone who is religious is dumb/has a low IQ or anything. I think people with higher IQs just naturally take a more scientific/realistic approach to life.

    That's what the evidence seems to show:

    Keep in mind this only suggests a correlation, not causation.

    And there are myriad problems with IQ tests.

    But given those caveats...yes, it appears people with lower IQs are much more likely to be religious than those with higher IQs.


    edit: I have to quote a columnist who commented on these studies:

    "It's not stupidity that makes you religious, it's religion that makes you stupid." (his words, not mine!)

    Yes. Seek out the answer in IQ studies. States that tend more toward the atheistic have higher IQs.

    As a statistical average, yes. As an absolute rule, no.

    Considering that 94% of scientists are atheists or agnostics, I would have to go with yes.

    Thats what the studies suggest. I don't often point it out though. It's wrong to judge individuals by whats true on average.

    There have been many studies that show that correlation.
