I dealt with different people with different points of views and different ideologies. When it comes to the atheists..They are exceptionally smart! I thought about the reason for so long..Until i found my own answer. As an atheist myself.. I am not considered a smart guy at all Lol but being an atheist is not an easy thing. Most of us ended up being atheists after reading about different religions and comparing these religions with other religions. As well as comparing all these religions to science. Atheists keep reading books of religions,science,physiology and all other sciences associated with humans and nature in general. I am not a reader myself but I found myself automatically opening online articles about nearly everything and start reading and analyzing the same time. The first thing i learned is ACCEPTING DIFFERENCE..No one looks exactly like the other, we all have different traits and features.. The moment I accepted difference is the same moment i started to read about different religions and other ideologies.
Even when atheists argue with each other, they show scientific legitimate evidence to each other to verify their points of views and no matter how hard the arguments can be, they always had a smile on their faces, so they are also wise and loving and know how to argue.
Ladies and gentlemen, accepting difference is the key towards knowing more about our lives, not like other people who are trapping themselves in their bubbles and reluctant to know anything different from the thing they grew up with.
To put it all in a nutshell, being an atheist is not just stop believing in god. being an atheist is an effort made to reach this conclusion by reading a lot and making a lot discussions with different people and trying their best to analyze them. In my opinion thats why atheists end up being smarter than average people.
What are your opinions guys?
