Report Religious people are less intelligent than atheists, study finds

Well, I never saw an insect going to church so probably something.
After all, being part of a religion requires a certain amount of intelligence.

What really bugs me about articles citing studies these days is that they don't link to the actual results and only offer their own interpretation of the results. It's not easy to find on Google 'cuz there are so many forums and blogs discussing the subject, and you end up ignoring the information because you don't have enough to base a decent opinion from. I feel like providing references is like... a part of their job or something...

No, this dude's job was probably to find some kind of evidence that religion hinders intelligence to some extent, and if he didn't he probably didn't get paid or had some weird catch 22 alongside it.

    So you are pursuing game dev as a hobby? What industry is your dayjob in?
  • jonas jonas:
    FAANG?
  • Jesus4Lyf Jesus4Lyf:
    Not quite FAANG, less pay for a less hours/stress. Yeah, game dev as a hobby.
  • jonas jonas:
    makes sense. Do we have a hobby game dev subforum to showcase some work?

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
