When I came out to my mom and grandparents that I was an Atheist, they were in total shock. They blamed it on my boyfriend, they blamed it on themselves, but what was the worst is that they said I was Atheist because I had low intelligence. How could that be? They told me that I had low intelligence because I was only studying one side of the arguement, not both. How could that be? I lived my life as a Christian. I was a devoted Christan for a long time untill I realized how backwards it all was. I could no longer force myself to believe in something that was so rediculous, so I looked at the other side of things and found that it made more sense. I do not understand why I am stupid because I decided to not blindly follow some invisible being. So please, someone explain to me why I have low intelligence.
