Is religious ceetainry just an intelligence.test

Why is it that the vast majority of people who are 100% certain that their religion is fundamentally true and correct have trouble understanding things like cosmology and the theory of evolution? Are stupid people just more apt to be certain in their beliefs and unable to change them.

    Every religion has an aspect of science it doesn't do well with. Atheism's is anything pertaining to race.

      You are a fricking moron. Atheism is no belief in god. Nothing more. It is not religion. And it definitely doesn't do "science" about race. Shows OP might be right.

    For the same reason that atheists who are 100% certain that their religion is fundamentally true and correct have trouble understanding things like metaphysics and ontology: What is not useful is discarded.

        What gives you that impression? Neither cosmology nor evolution are an issue for religion.

        Also, why do think atheists don't understand metaphysics? It's something that is hard to understand. It's more that most of tgem tend to be physicalists.

        Yes, a church with a creed and saints. The uniformity of behavior gives it away.

            Prove that atheism is a religion because you claim that it is?
            >Religion is a range of social-cultural systems, including designated behaviors and practices, morals, beliefs, worldviews, texts, sanctified places, prophecies, ethics, or organizations, that generally relate humanity to supernatural, transcendental, and spiritual elements—although there is no scholarly consensus over what precisely constitutes a religion

            Atheism is hardly a religion. Well, I guess Reddit Atheism would be one, it's physicalism + scientism + liberalism elevated to a creed, but that would hopefully not include all atheists quite yet.

            Atheism can never be a religion because it doesn't have any rules. It only defines itself as lack of belief in god. As for the reddit atheists, they only make upto a small percentage of atheists from a small section of the world. Atheists are all over the world, from different cultures and wuth different morals. Some good, Some evil.

            Atheism is a sickness of the soul, modern Satanism pretending to be simply "non religious". Really deep down you KNOW Gpd exosts and despise Him so you lie about Him not existing. There is so much proof evolution is a hoax, and atheissts still preach it.

            Low IQ people sometimes have trouble understanding that others have thoughts, opinions, positions and ideas different from their own. It's quite sad really.

            No. No one provided any proof.
            >There is so much proof evolution is a hoax
            Where is the proof?

    Multiple studies confirmed it. Religiosity is negatively correlated with intelligence. The question is, are brown people stupid because of their religiosity or are they religious because they are stupid? Asians are some of the least religious people on planet and they are naturally also the smartest.

      You have really naive outlook. Atheists are prosecuted in brown countries, so they will never admit to it. As for Asians, while they might not be religious, they tend fall prey to cults. Cults are huge problem in Korea and Japan. Shows how Atheism without introspection of nihilism leads back to religious like behavior.

          Not him, but I think it's because a good chunk of online discourse is just people browsing comments looking for something they disagree with so they can post "you're wrong, here's why". Look at any thread and most of what you'll see is debate junkies trying to get their fix.
          Try talking to atheists irl, and not the new atheist types.

    It depends on what you believe. At the very least what constitutes as knowledge or certainty is ambiguous. Devotees to transcendental mythology (belief in JHWH) have a set of principles that they deem important because some book is the direct teachings of said transcendental signified. A more popular stance nowadays, as my terminology suggests is the belief in semiotics or something alike. The evolutionary model is something that is not as old as these Bibles so it pertains not to such items. Sure, devotees have a cosmology, but the approach is top down, not bottom up as modern empirical rationalists (or positivisits, whaßever) assigned themselves in their search for answering how the world works.

    The fundamental idea here is that instead of assigning belief onto the objective reality (a thing modern man is skeptical about), the modern man assigns its belief onto its seeing, hearing, judgments, etc; belief comes from within. This reversal makes the religions incommensurable with modern thinking: where the old religious man judges the words as truth, the modern man judges the words as symbol/metaphor. So yes, I think stupid people are more apt to be certain of these archaic cosmologies as they do not concede to the similarity these competing belief systems share. The "modern" God is dead & stuff, is just as much idiot blabber as the religious fundamentalists though, but I don't care enough to elaborate now. Maybe some other anon feels himself competent to add to this.

    In the specific case of Fundamentalist Christians: because they are intentionally kept in the dark. If you go look at "I used to be a bible basher but now i'm an atheist" stories they all lose their faith when they actually learn what modern evolutionary and cosmological theories entail.

    Religion just isn't necessary nowadays. The so-called Holy Book is clearly just a collection of myths.
