The duty of a theist is to nurture the seed of truth and love in the society he lives in.
To share with him the divine truth to the ones whom lack in faith, and enrich their spirit, so that they shall taste the sweetness of life, and clear the clouds above their heads, so that the light will open their hearts.
Thus they shall once again see, and live , together, not apart.
Sincerely, Delshad

I couldn`t help but notice that the outcome, intelligent people usually don`t believe in religion , faded more and more as the timeline went on.
This seem to suggest that cultural beliefs in a specific time period has alot to say about the results .
And wouldn`t the fact that the last research ended somewhere in the sixties imply that most scientist have frowned upon the idea?
I`m also curious about the academic`s own world view, we all know how little significance this usually has on the way the tests are made, and thus their outcome.
And finally, what where your intentions by that post.
I dont really believe that your motive would be to set yet another barrier between peoples values and preferences, or?
I certainly hope not.

No I don't think that was my motive, although I'm not quite sure what you mean about me setting barriers.
Not that you have done it before, but that there is already enough of prejudism against religion in some societies.
And by posting a research like that , I fail to see the good that can come out of it.
I had even pointed out some flaws after I had critically analyzed the researches but you didn`t want to include that in your reply, why?

Mind you, its curious that you seem opposed to the idea while forgiven, who is also religious, seemed to advocate it in the first place. Personally, "educated people are less likely to be religious" doesn't sound nearly as self-evident as "less educated people are more likely to be religious" to me, even though its logically equivalent.
The word religion, has a very broad field, and one`s definition of it isn`t like anothers.
For example, if you had made a research in ,Saudi Arabia, asking the people if they believed in Allah, then you would probably in 95% of the cases get the respond ,yes.( I picked Saudi Arabia because of its religious structure and its educated citizens, if you wished to point that out)
So tell me then, isn`t religious preference mostly cultural, or do you perhaps believe that the Arabs IQ are under average, if you do that,( which I highly doubt), then thats another story.
