  2. Hey Freethinker...you like "EVIDENCE" right? Here check this out. Historical SAT scores. The bible & prayer was taken out of public schools in 1963. Check out this graph of how SAT scores started to plummet in 1963 and kept going.

    Here is a link to the article to where they state they do not know why test scores started dropping after 1963, but you just have to put two & two together and its pretty obvious.

    Hard to get excited about studying for years & years when you believe that nothing exists after you die.
     
  3. Studies comparing religious belief and I.QIn 2008, intelligence researcher Helmuth Nyborg examined whether IQ relates to denomination and income, using representative data from the National Longitudinal Study of Youth, which includes intelligence tests on a representative selection of white American youth, where they have also replied to questions about religious belief. His results, published in the scientific journal Intelligence demonstrated that on average, Atheists scored 1.95 IQ points higher than Agnostics, 3.82 points higher than Liberal persuasions, and 5.89 IQ points higher than Dogmatic persuasions. [4]

    Nyborg also co-authored a study with Richard Lynn, emeritus professor of psychology at the University of Ulster, which compared religious belief and average national IQs in 137 countries. [5] The study analysed the issue from several viewpoints. Firstly, using data from a U.S. study of 6,825 adolescents, the authors found that atheists scored 6 g-IQ points higher than those adhering to a religion.

    "Where knowledge ends, religion begins." -- Benjamin Disraeli


    Bill O'reilly says God controls the tides. Soon he'll say that rainbows are God's way of warning you there are gay people in the area. He is a former teacher and odds are there are similar mutants in the school systems.
     
  5. he is actually correct as God = the Mother Nature .
    he just doesn't know why .
     
  6. Santorum is the most dangerous person running, he has the potential to be the worst for America, yes even worse than Bachmann.
    Both are religious fanatics but Santorum is a very capable fanatic.
    We just don't know if he was in power and went off the Jesus cliff and started making decisions that his twisted mind would be thinking was guided by the hand of god. He is too big a risk for America, luckly for us no one on is behind this guy.
    Gingrich and Romney profess to be Jesus people but that's all it is, they wouldn't destroy America in the name of god and wouldn't "talk" to Jesus and do what they think Jesus is telling them to do. Gingrich or Romney would be pragmatic in their decision making, which is all we can ask of them.
