It is true that there are some christians who are not the brightest bulbs but I could -- and do -- say the same about atheists.
In fact, there is very strong evidence that there are idiots in any group you could think of.
I have seen some pretty idiotic claims mace atheists. While some christian arguments are absud, some atheist arguments are just as absurd. The idea that there is no evidence for the spirit world is about the stupidest argument i have heard
One woman recently toldme she was better educated and smarter than me simply because she was an atheists - and that gave her superior brain ability to outthink me .. of course she offered no arguments of substance.
She also said i was mentally ill for believing in god.
so you see it goes both ways,. Oh yea, she lives in europe, so that also made her superior ...
A little respect would go a long way ... and respect is a two-way street.
I respect those that think diffently than me, and they have that right -- and that respect lasts until they disrespect me. I wont respect anyone who does not give me equal respect.
its ok to think differently, and some people are better educated than others.
whether that makes you a better person is debatable.
some people are book smart and some people are street smart, etc.
