you can actually see the corelation between religiousness and IQ. I thought this was funny too, you can even see the corelation between religiousness/IQ and political affiliation:)

My state of Mississippi is the most religious, least intelligent, and most conservative. We also have the highest rate of poverty, third highest teen pregnancy, most STDs, most obese, most diabetes, etc. etc... I also just found out that it is against our constitution for an atheist to hold state office:

SECTION 265.
No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office in this state.

and don't get me started on racism...

I see by the very well assembled graph that:
Impoverishment causes:
Religiousness
Higher Murder Rates
Higher Theft
Conservatism
Lower Health & Contentment (Possible cause of Religiousness?)

From a scientific standpoint this is useless. What establishes what causes what in this kind of a comparison? You're opinion? Or your Belief that this true?

Bruce, this was merely a statistical post. No analysis was included, so causality isn't implied. It's just meant to be informational and an individual can think what he or she wants to think about it. Your comment sounds pretentious. Stop trying to sound smart and learn the correct use of "your" and "you're."
