    The world would be a better place without religion and the religious types. Much safer, kinder, wealthier.

    Do you have any examples to support that claim? The only officially atheistic countries I know of were Communist, or 'Progressives' as many called themselves, and they didn't do so well.

    There is a negative correlation between IQ and religion. The higher your iq the less likely you are to be religious. The worst countries in the world are the most severely religious. The best countries are the least religious.

    There is a positive correlation between IQ and many things such as crime, violence, generosity, wealth, etc.

    Almost all geniuses are atheist as well as most of the greatest thinkers in history.

    Overall atheist are far superior to religious folk in most areas, but many are too stupid to realize this.

    So all the Communists were geniuses, or had very high I.Q.s anyway. Still didn't seem to do all that well despite this superiority.

    You also seem to lump all religions together as though each is the same as the next. This is absurd.

    Can't believe it was ordered to be taken down. This memorial means a lot to all of us here in San Diego. If atheists would fight against real battles of infringement of their rights and not war memorials, I would be the first to help them. In this case though, they are being blatant assholes.

    Isn't it your argument that atheists are smarter than religious folk? I can only point to officially atheist countries to provide some evidence for your claim.

    Interesting I never read much about that. Forcing atheism at the government level is pretty messed up, certainly not the work of intelligent people. Of course it may have just been a bid to break the influence of religion so the state held total power and control, totalitarianism.

    And yet, after all those decades of trying to stifle religion, through murder, theft and destruction, it seems to have made a comeback. Perhaps there is more to this religion deal than we think.
