Atheists, how much intelligence do you have? Now, imagine how much intelligence you'd have if?
you invested that intelligence in the Bank Intellegentsia in an IRA that gave you 8% intelligence return annually. Now THAT'S some intelligence. Maybe, after a few years, even enough to understand the Incredible Hulk and be grateful that he keeps saving the world from aliens who would make you replace your brains with pudding.
Feel dumber? Of course you do! That's TIME, killing brain cells. So open an account with us at BI today and let time work for you!
Brad, actually the truth is that I haven't the slightest idea of what an IRA is besides 'some kind of money thing' and that it stands for 'internal revenue account' ( I think).
But that's b/c I'm dirt poor and completely apathetic about my future.

The IRA pays interest now?
I suppose that beats bombing Belfast....

Research has shown atheists have a higher intelligence than people with a strong religious faith. The difference is 5.8 points according to findings in developmental psychology!
More members of the "intellectual elite" considered themselves atheists than the national average.
Only 7 percent of members of the American National Academy of Sciences believed in God. Whilst only 3.3 percent believed in God in the UK’s Royal Society.
Several Gallup poll studies of the general population have shown that those with higher IQ’s tend not to believe in God."
Neuroscientists have conducted the most comprehensive brain mapping to date of the cognitive abilities measured by the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS), the most widely used intelligence test in the world.
The results show that the various factors that comprise a high or low IQ score
depend on particular regions of the brain.
The WAIS test is composed of four indices of intelligence, each consisting of several subtests, which together produce a full-scale IQ score. The four indices are the verbal comprehension index, which represents the ability to understand and to produce speech and use language; the perceptual organization index, which involves visual and spatial processing, such as the ability to perceive complex figures; the working memory index, which represents the ability to hold information temporarily in mind (similar to short-term memory); and the processing speed index.
With the exception of processing speed, which appears scattered throughout the brain, the lesion mapping showed that the other three cognitive indices really do depend on specific brain regions.
For example, lesions in the left frontal cortex were associated with lower scores on the verbal comprehension index; lesions in the left frontal and parietal cortex (located behind the frontal lobe) were associated with lower scores on the working memory index; and lesions in the right parietal cortex were associated with lower scores on the perceptual organization index.
The study also revealed a large amount of overlap in the brain regions responsible for verbal comprehension and working memory, which suggests that these two now-separate measures of cognitive ability may actually represent the same type of intelligence, at least as assessed using the WAIS.
It matters not if they are atheist because of this new type of intelligence or get it because they are atheist – it is a totally different and far more efficient process!!Source(s): Aarhus University Ulster University Gallup California Institute of Technology (Caltech) National Institutes of Health Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina
