Why is that?
Basic assumptions being greater IQ than average for society = less likely to be religious
Second assumption being greater IQ than average for society = more likely to be in law school
And that's about it
Neither of those assumptions are true, and the first one is actually fairly stupid
I cannot help but step in and provide evidence, which you so vehemently claim does not exist, that supports Sinfiery's first assumption. Consider the following: "Evidence is reviewed pointing to a negative relationship between intelligence and religious belief in the United States and Europe. It is shown that intelligence measured as psychometric g is negatively related to religious belief." This a quote from Dr. Richard Lynn's 2009 article "Average intelligence predicts atheism rates across 137 nations" that was published in Intelligence, a peer-reviewed academic journal of psychology. In 2012 Social Psychology Quarterly article, Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa, a professor at the London School of Economics, concludes "atheism ...correlate[s] with higher intelligence". These are only two of numerous studies that support Sinfiery's assumption.
