I may consider myself an agnostic, however I have to say that this post bordered on overt bigotry.

Just becuase someone is Christian doesn't mean they're stupid and ignorant, they simply choose to believe in something I disagree with. I have known many Christians much more intelligent than I, and many agnostics, as well.

The major difference that I see, at least, is that doubters tend to admit "Hey, I don't know" while believers cover it up through God. This, however, applies ONLY TO THE REALM OF THE UNKNOWN! The ability to aquire knowledge is not destroyed, only the way in which one describes what we don't know.

There is nothing that prevents a Christian from being a genius, just as there is nothing preventing an atheist from being an idiot. *cough cough* :)
