20 June 2017. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… “Atheists are More Intelligent Than Religious People”

Now, I’ve seen it all. Read this. Actually, this is a sign that the secularists in the chattering class are running scared. “We’re smarter than you are! There! Now, shut up!” It’s true that Evangelicalism (and its related cousins in Catholicism and Orthodoxy… and its analogue in Islam, Wahhabism) is a movement of the terminally stupid, but that’s not the gamut of religion. Secularists tend to be fragmented… believers tend to gather in groups. Therefore, secularists see more danger in their intellectual opponents than believers do. More secularists are militantly anti-religious than believers who are militantly anti-secularist. That’s a sign of fear. “We’re more intelligent!” That’s more a sign of insecurity than anything else.

Don’t hate secularists… most aren’t militantly godless or terminally stupid. However, many in the chattering class are so, so have a care.
