12 cognitive tasks that measured planning, reasoning, attention and memory.

These are the intellectual facets of intelligence. This test, like AI, lacks emotion. Which is a (if not the) key factor for intelligence.

All this study says to me is that Atheists are more like robots than religious people are. Congratulations. You're advanced AI.

Turing test for Atheists, when?

c&p from previous comment I made to someone else

Religious people are excluded from professions which require a combination of high IQ and low morality, like lawyers. Without low morality, a high IQ is a waste of resources and is selected against. After the fact, atheists imagine their position to be a consequence of high IQ in the first place, rather than low morality. They confuse cause and effect.

Note that this rational explanation never seems to be suggested in any of these "social science" studies.

The study cited does not backup that headline.

From the research article discussion section: "An interesting conclusion from this study is that the basis of the religiosity effect should be conceived of as a cognitive-behavioral bias, rather than impaired general intelligence. "

...but the religious are happier and more confident about the future.

I personally wish I were but then, I'd have to find a faith that'd reflect my views... Shintoism?

I am raised catholic and got many doubts when I asked a religious figure how Mary went.

The person told me that it was decided in the XIXth Century that she just went up in the sky, like Jesus.

Also, the transubstantiation thing where it IS Jesus that they put in yout mouth during the communion, not just a mix of salt, water and flour... I heard I could be protestant with my beliefs.

This is a bogus study.

In order for something to be intelligent it has to have emotions.
This test only measures intellect.

each person had to complete a 30-minute set of 12 cognitive tasks that measured planning, reasoning, attention and memory.

Intellect vs intelligence

Intellect is often considered to be a branch of intelligence reflecting mainly its logical and rational side. Because of the lack of emotional and sensitive engagement, intellect is sometimes considered to be strictly limited to facts and not going beyond mere raw knowledge. However, intellect can carry a high level of complexity and thus avoid linear and formal logic patterns by referring to such mental processes as, for example, fuzzy logic and dialectical logic.

Government is God to atheists.

Where do you people come up with this shit.

The Ironic thing about you religious people is you believe that

"man cannot govern himself"

That's why the pope and other religious leaders have governed you dumb asses for the past century under the guise of "we speak in the name of god"

Govern = to control

ment = mind

So the people who wrote and spoke for "God" is your government.
