Atheists Smarter? Not According to List of World’s Highest IQ’s!

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.

Now we learn that many people with the highest IQs are theists and Christians.
