Default Re: Belief and Intelligence

Let's say someone comes from out of space to Earth and looks at churches, mosques, synagogues, etc, god worshipping everywhere you look. What would they think? Would they think that there is indeed god or would they think that there is no god and the population of Earth just went bonkers? Now, that's the effect society has on a child. Unless you grow up in a strongly atheistic environment you may never even question if god exists. Does it make you less intelligent? That's why belief in god is in many ways irrelevant to this argument.

And by the way fear cripples abilities to reason.

Now it is your turn.
