    Studies have also shown that atheists, on average, have higher IQ than religious people.
    Therefore, I think that atheism should be taught in schools to increase childrens' intelligence.

    Is it that teaching children athiesm makes them more intelligent, or just that more intelligent people question the validity of religious teachings?

    Studies also show that religious people are happier...

    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I would consider myself spiritual over being religious per se. I am personally a much happier person today than I was a few years ago, and a big piece of that has been incorporating prayer and thankfulness into my daily life.

    Why did you air-quote 'person'?
