Religious people are they less intelligent than atheists study unveils!

BradSnell_IconBrad: A report that I read recently states that Religious people are less intelligent than non-believers, according to a new review of 63 scientific studies stretching back over decades.

A team led by Miron Zuckerman of the University of Rochester found “a reliable negative relation between intelligence and religiosity” in 53 out of 63 studies

Even in extreme old age, intelligent people are less likely to believe, the researchers found – and the reasons why people with high IQs shun religion may not be as simple as previously thought.

Intelligent people are more likely to be married, and more likely to be successful in life – and this may mean they “need” religion less according to the study by Miron Zuckerman.

The studies used in Zuckerman’s paper included a life-long analysis of the beliefs of a group of 1,500 gifted children – those with IQs over 135 – in a study which began in 1921 and continues today.

A 1916 study quoted in Zuckerman’s paper (Leuba) found that, “58% of randomly selected scientists in the United States expressed disbelief in, or doubt regarding the existence of God; this proportion rose to nearly 70% for  scientists.”

“Intelligent people typically spend more time in school—a form of self-regulation that may yield long-term benefits,” the researchers write. “More intelligent people get higher level jobs (and better employment (and higher salary) may lead to higher self-esteem, and encourage personal control beliefs.”

More intelligent people are more likely to get and stay married (greater attachment), though for intelligent people, that too comes later in life. We therefore suggest that as intelligent people move from young adulthood to adulthood and then to middle age, the benefits of intelligence may continue to accrue according to the study.

People possessing the functions that religion provides are likely to adopt atheism, people lacking these very functions (e.g., the poor, the helpless) are likely to adopt theism,” the researchers wrote.

So in summing up this  outdated study over 70% of scientists in the USA didn’t really believe in God or raised doubt in the  actual existence of Heaven and God.

Whitefox_AvatarRay: I have to chuckle a little at this study.

1) First of all it was a “scientific report” about the superiority of “scientists”. Could it possibly be biased?

2) Second I suspect the scientists were indeed lacking in education when compared to religious folks. That would be less education in the study of God’s word. Do people that read their Bibles, many on a yearly basis have less education  because they did not study Darwinism, or other philosophies of men? What you have is differing areas of study. There is the study of the creator (religious) verses the study of the created (science).

3) I also believe some of the facts are deliberately wrongly stated. For example marriage. I don’t believe the statistics from this report based on the early 1900’s are true today. Today it is more likely to be the secular humanist who is highly educated in science who will tend to fornicate (sex before marriage) and are also more likely to divorce if they do get married and are less likely to marry, whereas religious folks get married.

4) There is also an alignment between worldly education as opposed to religious education. People educated in the philosophy of men tend to also become more financially endowed. The article claims that poor people are ignorant and therefore subscribe to religion. I would suggest that worldly people chase the almighty dollar and substitute their need for God with material things including their desire to worship the created thing rather than the creator. It is one and the same person that is highly education that also tends to be wealthy in terms of this world. The Bible answers this with the statement that the rich find it difficult to get into heaven. (Their riches tend to stop them from finding out the truth of religion.) But in reality it is the educated in the philosophies of men that are the ones that are ignorant of God’s word and purposes. They are uneducated in the things of eternity and the things of God and they are headed for a lost eternity as a result of their spiritual impoverishment.

5) The article talks about self regulation as somehow superior to God regulation (we must assume this is what they mean). This drives to the definition of morals. Are morals dictated by God or by ourselves? Today marriage in Canada includes gay marriage whereas the Bible only supports heterosexual marriage. This type of union is an example where self regulation is leading society in a different direction than religious regulation. Such regulation is not superior to religious regulation it is different. But you cannot prove that self-regulation has proven to be superior to Gods regulation.

Educated people who are educated in the word of God know this whereas uneducated people in the word of God do not seem to know these things.

The Bible has three things to say on this subject which come to mind.

“Claiming to be wise they became fools”

“Beware of Science falsely so called”. (Beware of mans science. It will lead you to nowhere in terms of eternity.)

“It is harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God than for a camel to pass through the eye of a sewing needle.” (SKJV)

Seeking for Truth

01ff5b7Ray: The search for truth is the core purpose that we have started our website. Jesus said “Seek and you will find.” We believe that truth is not elusive that it may be found but we might have to do our part to do some home work and put some effort in, in order to find it. Once you know the target is there the next step is to figure out how to hit the target.

I worked during my career as an Management Information Systems Consultant. In my travels I was made privy to the Business rules used to make money by some of my financial clients. In the late 90’s I worked for one client that was a private corporation in which the owner had 5 Billion net worth invested in the company and his salary was 5 Million per year. He was the richest Canadian and wasn’t interested in any one knowing it. I asked how he became so rich? I was told that in the 60’s he discovered that he could consistently average 100% return on his investments in the stock market. I was told that eventually he had this whole company put together and that his wealth skyrocketed continually. The company didn’t double its value every year but this particular stock broker who owned the company continually showed this kind of performance to the rest of his staff in his own portfolio within the company. I was told he wouldn’t share the information even with his own staff. I was told he didn’t have a particular rule other than he switched his tactics continually and that he spent a lot of time researching the market. More than most.

What I learned from this is if one man can do it, I can do it. I subsequently did quite well in the market myself averaging 40% return for 5 years running. One of those years I reached 100% return but that year was averaged against one year that I lost 8% and the overall average for me was around 40%. I don’t do the stocks now. I may again. I have switched to other less high yield investing but that allows me to pursue some of my other pursuits with my limited time available to me. But the reason I tell this story is to relate that Once I knew that someone could be successful in the stock market then I also knew it could be done again. But I had to then do a lot of seeking to find the secret of that mans success. I believe I partially found some of what he knew and partially repeated his success. I had to do a lot of seeking to accomplish what I did accomplish. I was rewarded for my seeking to the level that I was willing to seek.

There is vastly more treasure to be had in seeking the truth from the Absolute God who can reveal Absolute truth to us. Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life”. The reward we are seeking is eternal life. That is a wealth far beyond earthly riches. Even after accomplishing that there is further treasure to unearth if we are seriously devoted seekers of Truth.

Seeking truth, if I am to accept that the Bible is the place to find it involves seeking to know Jesus. (Look for our topic Prophecy proves the Bible for the reason that I believe truth is to be found in the Bible.

)

Jesus said,

John 8 – 31 the Truth shall set you free.

The Apostle Paul said,

1 Timothy 2. 3 … God our Saviour; 4 … desires all men to be saved, and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

I believe that for some the seeking of truth will lead them to salvation and for those already led to salvation it is Gods desire that they continue on to seek to know the truth. A starting point in that venture is to come to realize that there is truth. Once you realize this then how can you help but seek it to its ultimate end.

A Radio Chat with Ray & Brad in 2010

picture-3552 Ray: We have been quiet at this blog. We hope at some point to increase our activity. I thought I would post a radio show that was aired on Blog Talk radio in 2010. Brad and I met in 2008 when I ran in the Canadian Federal Election as a candidate for the Newmarket-Aurora riding, representing the Christian Heritage Party of Canada. Brad interviewed me on a local Newmarket Radio station and on Internet radio several times over the following two years. (We have lost our archives of most of these interviews.) It was after this last radio show that Brad and I began to talk about sharing a blog site to present some of the things that we discussed on his show.

We spoke about a book which tells the truth about global warming in that program by an author named Glenn McKerron.  We hope to have Glenn on our YouTube show soon to revisit the topic of Global Warming.

Devolution

RAY: Devolution is an interesting topic. In most cases things have wound downward not upward over time. For example the first Dinosaur (latin for “terrible lizard”) that was discovered was called Iguanodon as it was noted to be identical only more than 10x larger than todays Iguana. It is also this initial discovery that has caused the common belief that these terrible lizards had leather skin with scales. But the Iguanodon has seemingly devolved into todays Iguana. This is also the case for sharks which have devolved in size and plant species which have much smaller leaves than they did 6000 years ago. There is a scorpion that was found in an underground cavern system which appears to have lost its eyes over time. Wholly mammoths have lost their hair and are much smaller today (now called elephants). Humans that used to live up to 1000 years are now living only 80 years on average. The Neanderthal is an example of ancient humans that lived a long life. We know this because of their lengthened noses and their extra bone along the eyebrows. (It has been observed that noses never stop growing all of our lives and that extra bone accumulates above the eyebrows all of our lives.) Today no one lives long enough to develop the skull features of the Neanderthal. Opposite to what Darwin believed it appears that things are increasingly becoming reduced rather than improved over time.

This was in response to a very interesting article entitled Our sense of smell is “devolving” by Adam Benton

The Simplified King James Version. Why is Ray working on a version of the Bible that resembles the King James?

A few sentences were cut off in the video.

Ray: That is what proves the accuracy of the over 5000 Majority Texts and that is what disproves the two rogue Alexandrian documents known as the Alexandrian Text. The Alexandrian text should be avoided completely. These texts are also referred to as the Vaticanus (it was discovered in the Vatican) and and the Tischendorf (after the name of the one that discovered it in a monestory in the Sinai) it is also refered to as the Siniaticus. Some argue there are some other texts but these are the two almost complete texts from which we are now receiving most of our modern Bibles today.

One of the arguments for the need for newer bibles is the desire for English that is more up to todays standards. This is a legitimate argument and it is the reason that the KJV itself went through 5 revisions up to and including 1812, 1769 or 1762 depending on which version of the KJV you use. All of these versions are almost identical except for punctuations mostly.

I have chosen to stick with the KJV line of bible as the KJV is based on the Majority of the texts and not the alexandrian. There was a recent attempt to give us an updated language bible called the New King James Version (NKJV). The problem with this version however is that they too accepted some of the errors from the Tichendorf (Alexandrian).

Starting in around 2003 I took some courses in Greek and Hebrew so that I could better understand the original languages of the Bible. After that in 2009 I wrote a book entitled “Illumination or Illusion” which examined the various KJV and non-KJV versions which resulted in many people asking me which version of the Bible I would recommend for someone wanting to have a more modern Bible? Starting in 2010 I decided that I would experiment with producing an accurate modern version that I am calling the SKJV (Simplified King James Version).

We are now preparing this new version for use in “English as a Second Language” training by Missionaries overseas and eventually we hope to make it availble in regular book stores later on. The New Testament is complete and we have about a years worth of work to complete the Old Testament ahead of us.

If anyone would like to examine a portion of the SKJV, Look down the left side of the screen under FREEBIES for the downloadable copy of the Gospel of John. It includes the Bible introduction and some commentary. I hope to pick up on this topic again at a future time.

Brad: Well that concludes our show “Truth is what matters”. We hope to hear from our listeners. You may comment on any one of our programs. We look forward to hearing from you.

Paedophiles are behind Ontario Sex Education

RAY: The following is an article from Charles McVety, President of Canada Christian College which he sent me today. I think our readers will find this information most interesting.

——-
——-

Dear Ray,

Many people have asked me, who is behind this radical sex education program confusing our young children with six gender teaching starting in kindergarten?

This movement was started by Dr. Alfred Kinsey who was a scientist, researcher and pedophile. Dr. Kinsey is cited on page 19 of Toronto District School Board curriculum guide Equitable and Inclusive Schools. Dr. Kinsey also published an 804 page book in 1948 that spawned the sex education programs of today’s children. He taught that children are sexual from birth and had orgasms as early as two months old. He used 317 men to rape hundreds of children, recording their every move, timed with a stopwatch. A few ways that Kinsey described children’s orgasms include kicking, screaming, hitting, convulsions and vomiting.

Kinsey’s infamous “table 34” (See Below) listed baby “orgasms” as young as 5 months old, and that a 4 year-old had 26 “orgasms” in 24 hours. This torture of little children led “scientists” to conclude that children need sex education as early as possible.

Now Ontario’s “Both/and — a curriculum resource for elementary school classrooms” states on page 18 “the idea of completely reforming the way that we as a culture think and speak about gender is daunting, at best. What better place to try though, than Kindergarten?”

As they teach Ontario ‘s precious children that they may be anyone of six genders and perform sexual experiments by inserting vegetables into each other, they do so based on the disturbing conclusions gleaned from Kinsey’s torture of children.

This must be stopped.

Please watch my TV Special on Dr. Kinsey, this Sunday Evening at 11:00 pm on Vision TV or at http://www.canadiantimes.ca

Also be sure to have your friends sign the petition at http://www.stopcorruptingchildren.ca

The TDSB wants to hear from you! Click here for more information

For the sake of the children please do not ignore this. I know you are busy but your action can help stop this insanity.

If not you, then who? If not now, when?

May God Bless You

We did a video program on how this problem has progressed on July 18, 2013

July 8, 2014,

Ray: The following is an update. Several have asked me to prove that Kinsey used more than one source for his report. It seems that Kinsey used several. The following is a documentary which gave the Kinsey institute ample opportunity to defend Kinsey but in doing so they admitted to a mass campaign of mail in surveys sent in by pedophiles and other sexual deviant behavior practitioners.  So many that they have never bothered to catalog them. They also delved into Kinsey’s Homosexual interest. This is another taboo subject these days trying to connect homosexuality with pedophilia. Yet this information lends credence to the truth that homosexual interest also seems to lead to pedophile interest.

The following is the documentary.

Is the Christian Bible a source of absolute truth?

RAY: I wish to thank one of our readers for raising the very important question of why I would think that an archaic writing (the Christian Bible) is a source of truth? He felt that quoting from it does not prove anything about the topic of “Absolute Truth”.

I realize that this is a valid argument that has been raised which is worthy of addressing.

I tackled this question in the introduction pages of the SKJV (Simplified King James Version) Bible which we promote at our sister website www.bibledoor.com. I also addressed this topic in a more detailed manner in the introduction to another book that I authored called “Illumination or Illusion – A comparative Study of Newer Bible Versions”. Both of these books are available at www.bibledoor.com.

I have provided here a link to the web page for the SKJV – Gospel of John. On page viii of the introduction  there is a section entitled “The Holy Bible is God’s way of revealing Himself to us !“. Please read that article and keep the gospel of John as well to read at your leisure.

http://bibledoor.wordpress.com/store-2/freebies/skjv-johns-gospel/

We will attempt to discuss this topic in a coming show. In preparation for this show I would like to ask for your opinions. Please comment about what you think about this topic.

Without Jesus there is no absolute truth

RAY: At this website we hope to directly engage folks regarding things in which worldviews collide. Jesus said

“I am the way the truth and the life”. (John 14.6, SKJV)

Truth seems to be part of the invitation appeal being made by Jesus. It is said of Christ by the Apostle Paul that

“God our saviour desires that all men might be saved and to come to the 
knowledge of the truth”. (1 Tim 2.3-4, SKJV)

It makes sense to us that the world in general is leaning toward the idea that there is no absolute truth because for the most part the world is becoming increasingly affected by the false philosophy of Secular Humanism. The secular humanist cannot be confident in his ability to know the truth because truth does not exist without a knowledge of God and the world is increasingly rejecting the God of creation, our Lord Jesus Christ.

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, 
and all things that are made were made by Him. ... The Word became flesh 
and dwelt among us.” (John 1.1-3,14, SKJV - available at www.bibledoor.com)

Secular Humanism has taught today’s generation that Evolution is responsible for creation not Jesus. It has taught that there is no absolute truth because it is teaching there is no God. If God is truth which Jesus claimed He is then there is no truth if there is no Jesus in a persons life. At least for the person lacking the experience of Jesus there is no truth.

Some comments about Truth from other websites.

 

RAY: None of the following articles are my own. I thought I’d share what some other blogs are saying about “Truth”.

What is truth and does it matter? –  (www.chirstianity.co.nz)

A recent Barna Research Group survey on what Americans believe asked the question, “Is there absolute Truth?” Sixty-six percent of adults responded that they believe that “there is no such thing as absolute truth; different people can define truth in conflicting ways and still be correct.” Seventy-two percent of those aged 18 to 25 expressed this belief.

In a recent series of more than twenty interviews conducted at random at a large university, people were asked if there was such a thing as absolute truth – truth that is true across all times and cultures for all people. All but one respondent answered along these lines: “Truth is whatever you believe.”, “There is no absolute truth.”, “If there were such a thing as absolute truth, how could we know what it is?”, “People who believe in absolute truth are dangerous.” The lone exception was an evangelical Christian, who said absolute truth was in Jesus Christ.

I suggest that the situation that these surveys reveal is fairly typical of the Western World. As Clive Calver says, in an article ‘Thinking Clearly About Truth’ in Christianity, we “drift on a tide of uncertainty into a sea of unknowing.”

(for the rest of this article follow this link.  http://www.christianity.co.nz/truth1.htm)

Why Truth Matters  –  (Os Guiness as quoted by Ravi Zacharius – www.rzim.org)

At first sight, the biblical view of truth is obscene to modern minds. But on a deeper look, the biblical view is profound, timely, and urgent for today, even for those who reject it.

The following is a plenary session delivered by Os Guinness at Lausanne 2010 in Cape Town, South Africa (www.lausanne.org). Used by permission of the author.

In this extraordinary moment in human history, why is it that truth matters? There are times when history and the gospel of Jesus converge and create a great thrust forward in human history. So it was with the “gifts” of the gospel, such as the rise of philanthropy, of the reform movements, or the creation of the universities, or modern science. There are other times when history and the gospel collide and the titanic struggle shapes history in a different but equally decisive way. So it was when the Lordship of Christ triumphed over the might of imperial Rome. But there are still other times when history and the gospel appear to collide but, in fact, the gospel speaks to the deepest dilemmas and the highest aspirations of the age, even to those which oppose it. So it is today with the concept of truth.

At first sight, the biblical view of truth is obscene to modern minds. It’s arrogant, it’s exclusive, it’s intolerant, it’s divisive, it’s judgmental, and it’s reactionary. But on a deeper look, the biblical view is profound, timely, and urgent for today, even for those who reject it. But obviously regardless of what the world thinks, we follow the one who is the way, the truth, and the life. We therefore worship and serve the God of truth, whose Word is truth, and who Himself is true and may be trusted because of his covenant faithfulness.

Truth – Not Sides – Is What Matters in Journalism

August 25, 2009 by George Snell (not Brad Snell, not related) Comments

When I was a newspaper reporter, I heard the expression dozens of times a week:

If only more journalists and bloggers were as diligent as Tintin.

“There are two sides to every story.”

I heard it from sources. I heard it from editors (especially from editors). I heard it from fellow reporters. Hell, I probably muttered those words a hundred times myself. Probably as my lame excuse why I was giving equal weight to a contrarian and probably dubious point of view.

Because there are NOT two sides to every story. There never have been. Sometimes there is one side to story. Other times there are three or four and sometimes even dozens sides. The notion that there are two distinct and equally relevant sides to every issue is ridiculous. But that mentality continues to permeate journalism and the web – especially blogging.

It’s one of the reason why journalism is struggling. As mainstream publications cutback on reporting staff and put more pressure on remaining journalists to produce copy – more he said/she said stories are published. Why? Because they are easy to write. Here is how NYU Journalism Professor Jay Rosen of ThinkPress describes the fundamental features of a he said/she said story:
•“There’s a public dispute.
•The dispute makes news.
•No real attempt is made to assess clashing truth claims in the story, even though they are in some sense the reason for the story. (Under the “conflict makes news” test.)
•The means for assessment do exist, so it’s possible to exert a factual check on some of the claims, but for whatever reason the report declines to make use of them.
•The symmetry of two sides making opposite claims puts the reporter in the middle between polarized extremes.”

This two sides to every story – he said/she said dynamic have produced coverage of:
•“Death panels” for the elderly as part of Obama’s healthcare reform package even though no such thing exists
•Holocaust deniers claiming that one of history’s most tragic events never even occurred
•The birthers movement who are claiming Obama isn’t an American citizen and should be removed from office

Now granted some of the coverage on the examples above is simply propoganda – the spreading of lies even when you know they’re lies. But many mainstream publications and blogs have reported on the issues above giving equal voice to the people who promote these fictional point of views. There is no “other” side of whether or not the Holocaust happened. To even give a voice to Holocaust deniers in a serious news article is to do a disservice to readers – and to society.

But this is what happens in a polarized political environment divided between Democrats and Republicans. The idea gets pushed that there are two sides – and only two sides – to every issue (as if every Democrat and Republican thinks exactly the same and that nuance doesn’t exist).

The job of a journalist should be simple: Discover the truth. Explore all the angles if necessary – giving a voice to dissenters with an opinion based on facts and reason. This could be one side, two sides or many sides. But at the end of the day reporters – those working for newspapers and those working for blogs – need to provide readers with what is real.

Some Famous Quotation about Truth
http://www.quotationspage.com/subjects/truth/

Categories: Absolute Truth, All Blog Entries | Tags: , | 9 Comments

It is not what you think that matters, truth is what matters.

RAY: Brad and I were sinking some balls on my billiard table, discussing what to call our new radio/podcast program. During the course of our conversation I said to Brad many people believe things that are not true. Many say that what’s right for you is right for you but whats right for me is right for me. If I think it is right for me to kill you but you think that it’s not right for me to kill you then who is right? “Obviously it is not what we think that matters, truth is what matters”, I told him. Brad replied, “That is the name we have looked for that describes our radio/podcast program.”

Brad and I first met in 2008 during the Canadian Federal Election in the Newmarket / Aurora riding. I was running as the candidate for the Christian Heritage Party at the time and Brad was interested in interviewing me to find out my political beliefs and to answer why Christians would want to establish a separate party and enter into politics. I told Brad it was the ultimate Christian Activism in trying to get our voice heard in the political arena. It was our hope that our voice might somehow shape the election by virtue of getting our message out at election times even if we were not to become elected. (You can review a blog that was set up at that time that gives some of my concerns that I expressed during the 2008 election at http://chp-newmarket-aurora.blogspot.com)

After that election Brad and I became friends. I went on the air at Blog Talk Radio with him and at Out and About Radio which is a local FM radio station in Newmarket and at another radio station which is a subsidiary of the CFRB in Toronto over the next couple of years to discuss my religious beliefs with Brad as the Host of the program. We also invited the leader Rod Taylor of the CHP to speak on the Out and About FM radio program on one occasion.

For the past year (2011-2012) Brad and I have discussed now and then starting an internet program and website to host it in which we might use video methods to produce an online discussion which seeks to contrast the Christian World View with other World Views. In this program we wish to explore the inner workings of the Christian faith. Many have heard messages from Christians related to how you should join them and become a Christian yourself but many want to know why they should become a Christian not just how they should do it. To answer the question “why” is a harder topic. First of all one would want to know why Christianity, why not Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, secular Humanism, Communism, Fascism and many other isms. Why should one chose the Christian World View?

Brad intends to ask the tough questions of Ray and other call in guests on each program. We may even host a debate with someone who wishes to challenge the Christian World View in some of our programs. Ray is known as “Whitefox” in the Atheist internet community as a theist and defender of Christianity at their websites. We invite these folks to listen into our program and to get in touch with us if they wish to participate in one of our shows.

Ray runs another website called http://Bibledoor.com. You may get in touch directly with Ray at bibledoor@rogers.com  Let us know if you would like to join our email list and you would like to give us your ideas about this show please get in touch with us. Let us know how you would rate our program. At some point we will post a rating widget at the site but for the first couple of programs while we are cutting our teeth we hope you will be patient with the quality of the program while we are learning to host it for you.

As a side note: This might interest BRAD. There is another Newscaster named George Snell who has an interesting article about Truth is what matters in the arena of journalism at his blog. While I do not agree with his opinions of the Bible I do agree with his article about the need for truth in Journalism.
