Atheism and Education
Can Education Prove or Disprove a God Students have not Seen?
Atheists Smarter by Education or Dumber by Socialization?
Actually, I believe there is an inverse relationship to intelligence and education. While atheists laud reports of studies which show there is a correlation of education to atheism, most of them have never seen any such study. In fact, it is likely that most who believe this is true have never seen such a study, and certainly have never reviewed the raw data. After years of asking atheists to show me the science backing this statement (and receiving nothing in response, except dogma), I executed my own aggressive research. I found the one study upon which this claim is based. See below.
This is a problem amongst the college educated. They have been formatted to accept a statement that a study was completed. And, they also accept the conclusion the lecturer gives them. They do not request the raw data. They also do not ask for the analytical process, statistical model, or equations used.
It is a tactic of Satanists, and people who do not understand who their father really is, to LIE. How many false claims at "the missing link" have there been as false claims to "prove" the THEORY (not law!) of Darwinian macro-evolution (the sudden transformation of one species into a distinctly new species by mutation)? Lucy, pilt down man, and several other archeological "finds" have been debunked as outright lies.
Back to the relationship of atheism and education. Heuristically, there appears to be a correlation. But, what is the basis of this correlation? Certainly, no CAUSAL relationship has been proven. Atheists like to say that more intelligent people reject God, and that more intelligence is measured by completing education.
Have any of them considered that it is the EDUCATION, not the ability of the students entering systems of education, that is the independent variable in this relationship? That is to say, for those atheists who passed stat 101 for arts students with a C, that education CAUSES rejection of God. This is a basic error in statistical analysis and in scientific reasoning. Once you have noticed a correlation, you must be very careful before claiming causality.
It is an easy foray into research to learn that Satanists have several very effective tactics. One of these is to control all leadership and information. To execute this, they have infiltrated groups and now run them. They actively seek to own and control the top seats of religious organizations (the reason so many teachings in denominational churches are weak and errant), scholastic systems, corporations, and governments. One of the biggest known New World Order families (who are all Satanists) owns 99% of all text book publishing in the U.S. Another of these families owns all the major museums.
In Business, Education Systems are Called Socialization Tools
In international business school, they teach that the more control the government maintains over the education of children, the more stable the country. This is part of what corporate leaders call "socialization". This might be called "mind control", "thought control", "idea control" or even "belief control" by free thinkers who apply a rational, philosophical eye to the situation.
Mind control is often established with the simple repetition of information. I did a review of all my business texts which I had in e-book format. They ALL had a favorable mention of Darwin. Even my accounting text worked it in.
Now, Einstein is credited as an ultimate example of iconoclastic scientific theoretical work. He formulated an experiment to test his theory of relativity. When a plane flew around the globe with a clock, it returned a few seconds behind the clock which remained at the point of origin. If you know what you are talking about, you can predict in such a way.
Darwin predicted that, IF his theory on the origin of species was correct, that the fossil record would provide an ample representation of transitional species. Despite the over abundance of fossils recovered, there has NEVER been even ONE example. If you think there have been, you have been deceived by "artists conceptions". Typically, the museum commissions a contest, with several entrants. The artist who presents the one which best fits the promoted idea- which in turn promotes a rejection of God- wins the contest.
I state here that I know what I am talking about. To support my position, I make the following predictions: Satanic elements (whether they are recognized as such or not) will continue efforts to control all education (socialization) of children. The attack on marriage will continue. Media and other idea control tools will continue to push the idea that homosexual marriage is good and an "outdated" Christian concept of one man and one woman for life is the silly thinking of individuals with limited capacity for scientific, reasoned thought. They only believe it because that is what they were born into! Eventually, the government will claim that THEY own all children, and should raise them themselves.
Do Nations with More Education have More Atheists?
The Problem with the Graph
The problem with the graph is obvious to anyone who understands how an IQ score for a society is attained.
How IQ Test Results are Tabulated
First, all the scores are tabulated. The average score is then scaled to 100. Those who are a little below are scaled to scores in the 90-99 range. Those who are a little above in the final tabulation are scored 101-110. This extrapolates to the left all the way to (potentially) zero, and to the right to some score which differs for each test. Most IQ tests max out at some score. Often, the maximum is 140 or 145. Specialized IQ tests are used to measure scores up to 160. Above this, specialists are called in to assess individual persons.
However, by the very structure of the test, the scores are statistically distributed around the average score of 100. Just glancing at the distribution in the above graph, any statistician can see there is a problem. The distribution is not distributed with 68% within one standard deviation of 100, and not with 95% within 2 standard deviations.
If these results were correct, you would see most of the results around 100, and fewer at the extremes.
Compressing the data into these standard deviations would drastically truncate the small differences these researchers claim.
Countries on Left of Graph NOT Atheist
Of course, all of this ignores other important facts, e.g. Only 1% of Americans are atheists. How did such a small portion overwhelm the other 99% so much to raise the American IQ so far above IQ scores of other nations?
Additionally, note that most of the nations to the left have a history of Christianity, and many are still primarily Christian today. Most of those on the right side (e.g., Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt) are extremely religious, mostly regarding pagan pantheons and Allah. These nations on the left remarkably have little to no history with Christianity.
In short: the basis of atheist claims to superiority based on higher IQs over the religious is based on a biased work. It is not scientific at all. The data is not scaled. The data is not representative. The sampling of atheists is far too small. The conclusion is not supported by the data.
Are Ethiopians Mildly Retarded?
Second, a person with an IQ of just 70 is someone who can barely cope with living. People with IQs between 55 and 70 are technically considered "mildly retarded". Are we really expected to believe that continental Africans are this way? I don't. And here is the reason: In my personal experience, I have not found this at all. A major problem with book-smarts people is that they cannot actually do much of anything. If they ever manage it, it will take them years to learn to apply any of what they read in books. This is called "common sense". Common sense tells any person who took STAT 101 that this graph is seriously in error. Further, common sense tells us, "Ethiopians do not have an average IQ of 65."
Study Claiming Atheist Superiority Conducted by Racist
It took me less than 10 minutes to find that the study making these claims was conducted several decades ago by a pro-apartheid racist who carried a strong bias that blacks were of inferior intelligence. Further, the test he gave required knowledge of things particularly English, like the fact that tennis involves a net at mid-court. Would anyone be surprised to learn that most Africans had never seen or heard of tennis in the year the test was conducted- 1929?
Children with these IQs, in American schools, are placed in "special needs" classes. Do you remember those kids who rode "the little bus"? Use your common sense: Are all Central Africans, Senegalese, Haitians, Ethiopians and Sierra Leonans like the neighborhood kids who rode the little bus?
The answer is: No, they are not like them at all.
Conclusion: the "study" is completely flawed. It is so blatantly flawed no reasonable person can accept it. Only those who wear the glasses of bias will accept it, believe it, or promote it.
Every single atheist who claims atheists are smarter than Christians can trace their belief back to this one study. And, each person who makes this claim demonstrates their ability to be told what to believe, and to believe it without any scientific basis, without any personal experience, and without the benefit of common sense.
Part of the Blame Belongs to Christian Parents
Matriculating students are 70% Christian entering college. Exiting, this number is typically halved, and falls to as low as 2% at Ivy League campuses.
Why are colleges able to simply teach faith out the children of Bible-believing Christians?
The answer is one most Christians will reject: It is because they are not actually Bible believing. Instead, they are man believing. Instead of believing what the Bible says, that the Holy Spirit will lead believers into all understanding, most Christians attend denominational churches that teach denominational doctrines. Most denominations teach that there is no more power- no prophecy to convince another person that God knows and that God speaks to His children; no visions to predict the future and strengthen the faith of believers, no power of the Holy Spirit to show the Kingdom of God and give sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, health to the sick, and to even raise the dead.
I have seen all of these. That is why a professor cannot convince me otherwise. I do not have "blind" faith. When I first believed, yes, I believed just from hearing. However, as I grew under the careful guidance of my Father in Heaven, and the sanctification of the Holy Spirit, I saw more and more the faithfulness of the Word of God and it's unbreakable nature.
When parents are only followers of men, and their children do not study the Word, then they can easily be carried away by every new doctrine. This includes recent trends like atheism on campus, worshiping other humans, so-called Christian Wiccans, sex and homosexuality in the "church", even.
But, Jesus clearly said we are to care for others with honest love. And, we are to preach the gospel, cast out devils, cleanse the lepers, and heal the sick. Many times, preaching and healing were paired together in the directions Jesus gave us.
So, this failure of leaders, including parents, is why youth go to college and lose their teaching-only faith.
Want to change that? Learn about deliverance, doing what Jesus wants us to do.
Learn about Deliverance. Do it now, don't delay another day.

Alternate Explanations for Correlation between Atheism and Education
When plausible theories outside the favorite or preferred theory exist, then that theory is not yet proven. Here are some alternate explanations to "Intelligent people get educations. Educated persons are prone to atheism. Therefore atheism is the more intelligent belief."
1. Education and atheism are more correctly correlated with income. Those from poor families cannot afford to apply to college. Many such families have no concept of how to apply, when to apply, or even that the college itself will finance the entire degree and even give money to help with rent. Such people also have time to go to church on Sunday. Their family owned business is not distracting them; they are not on call at the hospital, either. When someone is sick or injured, they cannot afford the emergency room. They pray. And, those who pray are the only ones who see results. The faith of people who have seen the Power of God, not just heard the "gospel of salvation", cannot easily be shaken in their faith.
Other people have lucrative careers and time-consuming jobs. They stopped reading their Bibles. When they fell ill, they trusted doctors and pharmaceuticals, not God. Their children grew up marking the Christian box on forms, but had no real relationship with a living God. Their understanding of God was mental, nothing more. Those children go to college and a new explanation is given. And, it comes over and over and over again. It is a contest between a light explanation given long ago and a heavy argument in the right now.
So, the poor continue to be the ones richest in God, and to work poor-paying jobs (generally speaking). The rich trend toward trusting education and science while excluding God or marginalizing Him.
Training God out of Youth is a Satanic Goal
The following video is going to alert you to a truth. Some of you will be shocked, others angry. But, the infiltration of the government by Satanists and Secret Societies is pervasive and almost total. It is possible that all the topmost positions of power and influence in America are held by a small group of the SSS (Secret Society Satanists.)
