            I’m not that anon, but Isaac Newton was an autist about the Bible and Christianity, especially the prophetic parts. I could see this spergo starting as a Quaker or a Universalist, and then self-publishing a lot of shit.

            You didn’t even look into this, you fucking liar. He wrote a whole commentary on Biblical prophecy, and explicitly came out against mechanistic theologies and deism that were arising in his time. Leibniz was also a Christian. As was Descartes, who retained Catholic rites while in a Protestant country.

          Thanks for proving OP right by not understanding why an argument from authority is a fallacy.

          IT IS, modern science has both proven and disproven in a years span that male brain and female brain were identical and quite distinct respectively, the trick was that one study was demanded to prove that women were deserving of more rights, and the other study was for trans people.

          And so it is with modern science. A whore that sells itself out.

          So yes, it’s basically someone who paid to promote atheism.

          Case closed, science is a whore, we all know this happened with the brain, you can still google both studies.

          Why is that good?
          Is your purpose in life to ensure the survival of a technological social system or your genetic line?

          Mariah has cuckolded herself, by allowing an artificial organism called a corporation to hijack her reproductive system. Her fertility is suppressed to ensure that the bulk of her productive years is spent contributing resources and energy to the growth of this aggressive alien organism, rather than having children.

          None of that sounds very intelligent to me. Clearly Becky is the healthier specimen of the human species.

                Look man if you think being trailer trash popping out kids is a greater ideal than a surgeon than we have different value systems.

                Though perhaps a bigger picture discussion here is that none of you have actually proved that in 2021 Christians are having kids above replacement rate in your country. You might want to look for 2.2 as replacement due to the astronomical rate of suicide and overdose deaths too.

                  >muh surgeons
                  Most surgeons are barely competent. Elaborate systems of oversight have to be put into place to keep them from killing their patients, and somehow they still manage to find ways to do so through their incompetence.

                  I would genuinely rather live in a society that prioritizes having more cashiers working at the checkout line than having more surgeons, as I am more likely to use a checkout line in life than have surgery, and the negative impact of an incompetent cashier is far less devastating to my well-being than an incompetent surgeon.

                  >Though perhaps a bigger picture discussion here is that none of you have actually proved that in 2021 Christians are having kids above replacement rate in your country.

            He actually didn’t ask for the source and just asked where the study (probably didn’t see in the image that it says 53 studies) was conducted. And I correctly told him that these studies have been conducted all over the globe, and the result is that intelligence correlates negatively with religiosity.

          That’s not true. They found that people who are more religious in South Korea (Christian that is) are more intelligent.

          > Our results indicate that, unlike in Western countries, there is a positive relationship between religiousness and IQ in South Korea, so Catholic and Protestant Koreans, the two largest religious affiliations, actually have somewhat higher mean intelligence scores than nonreligious Koreans.

          > Meisenberg et al. (2012) found that the usual negative religiousness-education nexus found in most countries was not only reversed in a small number of highly-developed countries, but also in Sub-Saharan Africa, meaning that higher education goes with higher religiousness in Africa. This may hold a more pertinent clue with regard to explaining our findings in South Korea.

            Islam is a militant religion which forbids women from serving as militant.
            If you read the Islamic text you will read that Mohammad says that women are deficient in religion and intellect. One reason why women are deficient in relgion is because they cannot participate in jihad.
            So women not being militants makes them less religious in the Islamic model. In fact Mohmmad said that he saw a vision of hell and that most of its inhabitants were women.

      Also according to science, there are six gorillion genders and it’s in all of our best interests to eat bugs and live in pods.

      Please fuck off with your shit flimging attempt, crurent religions may have stumbling foundations but it doesn’t make then inherently evil, you need a common framework to keep poeples together, and I can’t wait for a new religion to emerge so we can stop seeing economic output as the only thing to do on this earth.

        It’s insane to me that so many people here are completely alien to the concept of orienting their life around family and friends and achieving goals, which almost every normal person I’ve ever met does.

      Christians are the 2nd most educated people in the world, after garden gnomes. So even if I accepted that atheists were more intelligent than Christians, I still have no reason to care because they’re less qualified than we are.

      I consider christgarden gnomes retarded (imagine worshipping a gnomish god who belonged to a pantheon originally)
      but being "more intelligent" isn’t necessarily good. Most modern atheists as others have pointed out are sterile and live in pods and leech off society
      So their high IQ doesn’t actually contribute anything. The vast majority of atheists aren’t nuclear physicist or mathematicians

      Furthermore this begs the question, if less intelligent people are indeed inferior, aren’t diverse folk extremely inferior too?

      This is just because homosexuals are higher IQ, and there is a high comorbidity of atheism and homosexuality.
