Religious belief linked to being a bit dim

PEOPLE who describe themselves as religious may also be a bit thick, according to new research.

As a study found that atheists know more about religion than religious people, experts said that in all fairness that should not really count as news and it was actually rather cruel to ask them complicated questions of that nature.

Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: “Are you religious because you’re stupid or does being religious make you stupid?

“It’s the classic chicken and egg scenario.

“For any religious people who may be reading this, a chicken is a domesticated bird, roughly the size of a football while an egg is the small, beige oval thing that comes out of it and then goes into your tummy – probably in the form of mayonnaise.”
