Are Atheists the Intelligent Ones?

Stolen with permission from Kirk Hastings
This kind of thing is laughably fallacious. Every once in a while, someone will hit me with the claim that they are smarter than Christians simply because they choose to disbelieve that God exists and what the Bible says about them (Psalm 14.1, Proverbs 1.7, Romans 1.18-22). They are ignorant (willingly or otherwise) of the fact that some of the greatest intellects of all time have been Bible-believing Christians. Further, I have had some giggles by eviscerating fallacious remarks by someone claiming to be smarter than us st00pid dumb Xtians. My feeling is that people make this kind of claim simply to bolster their fragile egos and to gain some self-worth, which should come from a relationship with the Creator of the universe.

By the way, it is ridiculous to worship the intellect, as if that was the sole measure of someone's worth!
