Because you are on Nairaland religious section talking about smartness. What every right thinking person expect from religion is solution to social conflicts devastating the human society not some skills that's not compulsory.


Believers deal with people's mindset changing their thoughts from being hazardous to peace makers. While you can only think of a particular skill that's only useful when people get sick! smiley
Are you sure you are not high on something?

OK it's no more about smartness now you're going abusive shey? cheesy

My friend, smartness is not measured by skills but the ability to change people's thinking either for good or bad. In this case believers are smarter than atheists in the sense that they've managed to inculcate peaceloving in the minds of over 8.7 millions of people from different races on this planet, all these people have vowed never to raise weapons against anyone again.
Now these are people that could kill you due to Racism or Politics whether you offend them or not but believers have changed their thinking using that book (Bible)
I am telling you that there is no smartness greater than that. You may now go on with your insults and abuses after all there is no difference between you and misinformed Churchgoers when you are caged in your reasoning it either abuses, insults or curses! cheesy

I am just wondering because you are not making sense anymore.

FatherOfJesus:
If you apply logic and reasoning to the Bible, you will disbelieve it from Genesis until revelation.


Really? If one apply logic and reasoning to the bible, one will disbelieve it from beginning to end ? You are actually saying nothing about the bible is reasonable? Isn't that you being unreasonable?
.
FatherOfJesus:
That’s why logic is forbidden in religious practice, it opens up loopholes, it’s better you believe by faith (ofcourse which creates rooms for infinite uncertainties).
Whoever told you that logic is forbidden in religious practice lied a great deal to you.

FatherOfJesus:
Science is not anti religious, anything that employs sound logic and reason to explain the existence of everything will always hurt religion, whether or not it’s scientific.
.
Lol... How can religion be hurt sir? Religion is just the belief in the existence of God. If science tries to explain that, how does it hurt religion? If you said "it hurts religious leaders or blind followers", i'd agree with you. Religion existed far back before science and it tried in its own way to explain the beginning and events of time past. Is it accurate? No. But because it is not accurate doesn't make it absolutely false. Religion in itself is not threatened of any other explanations. Religious leaders in authority are, because they feel they will loose the power they have over the people. Religious leaders had always fought against science in time past because of power tussle. Religion is not perfect, so is science. Why? Because humans are involved in it. The truth is, science only explains what they want you to know. They still hoard a lot from you.
.
The conclusion on the whole matter is, you just don't believe in the existence of God and so you feel that anybody who does is a fool. That is what all of these is about. There is no need to try and compare the level of intelligence of atheist and believers because i know what your problem is. But whether you believe it or not, THERE IS GOD O!!!!

It is not that he does not believe nor know that God Exists it is rather because he knows that he can never ever enter The Kingdom of God like Judas Iscariot!

And that he is one of those marked for the lake of Fire, so he is here to take as many people with him, Exactly As Prophecied!

I hardly can think of anything that is logical about the bible. Of course, religious leaders may employ logic is other aspects of life, but all their logic comes to a halt when it involves their religion. This is why even great religious scientists were unable to provide Evidence for God, because they are very aware that to get results in science, you need empirical evidence and not unjustifiable claims

Funny. And odd, when I think about your statement above. Isn't logic a thing you are meant to apply when analysing a thing as opposed to seeking for logic in a thing?

When I read the Bible and the Quran wearing my logically lenses I get more amazed at the wealth I dig out of it, I must say. And anyone who hasn't tried studying the Bible and Quran logically is like a blind person studying elephants, and can't really be said to have studied the books at all, I dare say.

Logic (from Greek: λογική, logikḗ, 'possessed of reason, intellectual, dialectical, argumentative') is the systematic study of valid rules of inference, i.e. the relations that lead to the acceptance of one proposition (the conclusion) on the basis of a set of other propositions (premises). More broadly, logic is the analysis and appraisal of arguments.
