intelligent people are not religious

"When a man is freed of religion, he has a better chance to
live a normal and wholesome life."
Sigmund Freud
"I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious ideas of
heaven and hell, of a future life for individuals, or of a personal God.
So far as religion of the day is concerned, it is a damned fake...
Religion is all bunk."
Thomas Edison
"So far as I can remember, there is not one word
in the Gospels in praise of intelligent."
Bertrand Russell
"Faith does not give you the answers, it just stops you asking the questions."
Frater Ravus
"What excellent fools religion makes of men."
Ben Johnson
"There is not one single established religion that
an intelligent, educated man can believe."
George Bernard Shaw



"The presence of those seeking the truth is indefinitely to be preferred
to the presence of those who think they've found it."
Terry Pratchett
"What excellent fools religion makes of men."
Ben Johnson
"The foolish renounce this world and pursue an imaginary world to come."
Giordano Bruno

delusional "doctor" is a fraud selling his book
This boy is not pathetic, just a boy.
I think the "doctor" above stole his idea, haha.
“Countries with a high percentage of nonbelievers are among the freest, most stable, best-educated, and healthiest nations on earth. When nations are ranked according to a human-development index, which measures such factors as life expectancy, literacy rates, and educational attainment, the five highest-ranked countries -- Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands -- all have high degrees of nonbelief. Of the fifty countries at the bottom of the index, all are intensely religious. The nations with the highest homicide rates tend to be more religious; those with the greatest levels of gender equality are the least religious. These associations say nothing about whether atheism leads to positive social indicators or the other way around. But the idea that atheists are somehow less moral, honest, or trustworthy have been disproven by study after study.”
Greg Graffin

“The world holds two classes of men - intelligent men without religion, and religious men without intelligence.”
― Abu'l-Ala-Al-Ma'arri

"Religion...is the first enemy of the ability to think. That ability is not used by
men to one-tenth of its possibility, yet before they learn to think they are
discouraged by being ordered to take things on faith. Faith is the worst
curse of mankind, as the exact antithesis and enemy of thought."
Ayn Rand
"Faith may be defined briefly as an illogical belief in the occurrence
of the improbable. A man full of faith is simply one who has lost
(or never had) the capacity for clear and realistic thought. He is
not a mere ass; he is actually ill."
H.L. Mencken
