    Scientists also have a higher average IQ than Christians. However, there are many scientists who are atheists, and many scientists who are Christians, and there is no difference in IQ among these people.

    The scientific "worldview", if there can be said to be such a thing, is to rely on objectively verifiable evidence with a healthy dose of skepticism and not only continually retest what you think is true, but be willing to change as new evidence comes up.

    The atheistic worldview, if there is such, would be along the lines of "we don't believe in any gods, because there is no reason to do so."

    If these two world views were real, they would be in perfect harmony with each other, as opposed to the theistic worldview which is "I believe in a god or gods for no good reason and will do so without any evidence."

    No, because IQ does not actually measure intelligence.Beside your premise is unsupported and likely false.

    No. Clearly you are not a scientist.

    As most scientists are ALSO atheists, how did you manage to ascertain that?

    That's a false correlation. I could just as easily say that on average, scientists have higher IQ scores than everyone on the planet, and state that this is a sign that scientific worldview is more intelligent than everyone's worldview.

    "Atheists" are people who do not believe in God. Stand to sense that scientists, selected for reasoning powers, would do better than average.

    On average, scientists are atheists.  And that by a huge margin.

    shot yourself down in flames again I see.

    It used to be entertaining to see you dullards go through your mental contortions, but it is tiresome after so much of it.
