People love to believe that believers are dumber than non-believers, but I haven't seen any basis in truth in that.

To me it's just a simple question of what you can bring yourself to believe and for me I can't believe anything but atheism, but this fact doesn't really inform any other part of my character or intelligence.
Yeah, I remember when I claimed to be an athiest, I was pretty judgmental of believers. The truth was that I was the opposite of an athiest, I believed in the Christian God so much that I thought he hated me, so the only way to deal with that was to hate him back. Of course, at the time I was 13, so I guess that's almost an excuse for acting like a retard.
