Yesterday I posted a link to an essay by Ilya Somin at the Volokh Conspiracy which addresses a study that supposedly proves that people who are more intelligent are more likely to be politically liberal and atheistic. Somin pointed out some serious methodological and ideological flaws in the study with regards to correlating intelligence to political affiliation. Today, Somin addresses the assertion that more intelligent people are less likely to believe in God.
