How many times have you heard atheists argue that people with the highest intellects are atheists. Many of them are. At same time, there are many very intelligent Christians..
I know lots of them.
One of my professors, the late Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen (1948-1995), was one of the most respected Christian debaters. He held an earned Ph.D. from the University of Southern California in the field of epistemology.
I know one well-known atheist who refused to debate Dr. Bahnsen if the debate was recorded.
One would think that if an intellectual ass-whipping was inevitable, that an atheist would want it recorded to show the world that Dr. Bahnsen was intellectually incapable.
“In 1994 a controversy emerged after atheist philosopher Michael Martin cancelled a debate with Bahnsen, because Martin ‘refused to allow the debate to be taped and sold to support a Christian organization.'”
Now we learn that many people with the highest IQs are theists and Christians.
The following is from Steve Williams at Examiner.com:
Have you ever heard the claim “all smart people are atheists”, or maybe its inverse: “people who believe in God are dumb”? It’s quite a pervasive urban legend, and one which I’ve known is false for a long time, but I didn’t realize just how false until the other day. I recently decided to do a quick cataloging of the ten highest IQ’s on earth, and discovered that it’s nearly the exact opposite of the truth!
