    Might be a tad controversial but do you think people who believe in any religion are less intelligent? In my lifetime the people I've met who believe tend to be on the dimmer side

    Not necessarily thick, but certainly more gullible and wanting something to cling onto.

    In my experience religious people fall into three categories.

    1. People who are brought up with it.
    2. People who turn to it in order to deal with life.
    3. Paedophiles.

    Define "less intelligent"...and which Religion? (not for a moment suggesting there is/are any specific links).

    I think people are less Religious now but there seems an awful lot of dull fkrs around - more than there used to be i'm sure!

    I am not so sure about that. I think we are just more aware of them thanks to social media.

    You may have a very valid point there TDA.
    Based on some (lots) of past clients..a few people knew they were dull until you give them access to the internet - then every fkr knows.

    I've based it off that my job involves quite complex problem solving and a theme is occurring that the religious ones who join never seem to grasp how to do it.

    Or "born again" Christians. Usually caught wanking to dwarf porn (or in jail for brutal murder) and using that line so that you can't take the piss anymore.

    I am equally intolerant of all religions. All nonsense and, in the most part, harmless. But, it is a powerful weapon for perverts to abuse children for example. At my granddad's funeral the vicar, who was female - well done the Church, it only took 2000 fucking years - anyway, this vicar was going on about "those who believe in me will find a path to eternal life blah blah blah". Rather disrespectful, I thought, and arrogant. My granddad wasn't religious at all, but it's not the done thing to have a funeral without one.

    For my funeral, I hope no-one wastes any money and if they want to spend some time celebrating my life, just hope they end up pissed, shagging someone they always wanted to, but probably best not to, and wake up with a stinking headache.

    Fuck religion, a waste of time. It's main purpose is to take people's minds off the sombre thought of mortalitly. Once we're gone we're gone. You may have spent countless hours praying and singing crappy hymns, but once you're gone... you're fucking gone.

    OP - I don't think religious people are less intelligent, they just have all the wrong answers.

    There’s always been dull fuckers around.

    We had Dopey Stephen and Dopey Gerald in Merthyr when I was a kid.

    Dopey Stephen tattooed “ELVIS” on his forehead in Indian ink but did it in the mirror so it said “SIVLE”.

    Dopey Gerald we used to make dance by throwing coppers on the floor for him or give him the Corona bottles to take back to the shop for 10p. Quite cruel looking back on it but good sport when you’re 10/11.
