Atheists smarter than religious believers - study

Religious people are likely to be less intelligent
than their atheist counterparts, a study claims.
The analysis, which looked at almost a century of
data, found a negative correlation between high IQs
Professors Miron Zuckerman and Jordan Silberman,
from the University of Rochester, looked at 63
studies in the field carried out between 1938 and
2012. In their paper, entitled "The Relation Between
Intelligence and Religiosity: A Meta-Analysis and
Some Proposed Explanations," Zuckerman and Silberman
drew the conclusion that the majority of studies
found that more intelligent people were less likely
to subscribe to organized religion.
Out of the 63 surveys, 53 showed a negative correlation
between intelligence and religiosity, while only 10
displayed a positive one.
They found that infants with higher intelligence would
be more likely to reject religion. Furthermore, older
people with above average IQ are less religious, the
"Our conclusion is not new," Zuckerman said. "If you
count the number of studies which find a positive
correlation against those that find a negative
correlation, you can draw the same conclusion because
most studies find a negative correlation."
