I keep hearing how critical thinking and general knowledge are a path to escaping from religion.It seems that people with normal intelligence have to make a concious effort to suppress their own rationality in order to keep believing in their religion which ever one that may be. Making a virtue of faith makes a virtue of gullibility and stupidity.This gives abnormally gullible and stupid people an environment in which they can excel.Because religion comes easily to them. Where as normal people have to keep talking themselves into it.
