Intelligence may also lead to greater self-control ability, self-esteem, perceived control over life events, and supportive relationships, obviating some of the benefits that religion sometimes provides.”

    What a load of CRAP.

    You cannot measure intelligence from “surveys.” And the sample was pitifully small.

    I know TONS of New Atheists, and they are just stupid enough to love this fallacious bias confirmation. No more IQ than back when they were fundamentalists.

    I am an old school atheist, and find both educational levels and perceived intelligence levels to be much higher in liberal theistic communities, like the UUs or the Quakers or the Scientific Pantheists.

    New Atheists are so stupid they think their IQ goes up with they don’t believe in their god anymore.
