    I think so.
    And this has something to do with religion?
    Isaac Newton, Rene Descartes, and Blaise Pascal were all devoutly religious.
    Gregor Mendel was an ordained priest.

    Descartes, bleh!!!

    Newton was an atheist.

    Pascal suffered from an epileptic seizure/pathology that triggered his "God spot" in his brain and led him astray.

    Mendel, um, he was chill, can't say too much about him.

    Shite, I might be confusing Newton with Galileo, yeah, I am.

    Whatever.

    Newton was probably a Deist, then.

    The patron of rational epistemology. The man that invented the coordinate graph, as well as many other geometric contributions. And someone that independently discovered matter-like properties of light. Your respone to this man is "Bleh".

    Sterling argument.

    (I might add, that it is especially funny since I've been getting the impression that you use his kind of reasoning).

    You're right that he was crazy, but I don't know what this "God spot" is. Crazy or not, he was intelligent and religious.

    Do you know who he is?

    Nope. He wasn't a diest either. He did hide his religion, though, because being highly religious was rather unpopular among intellectuals at the time.

    Okay then.

    What this does a pretty good job of demonstrating is men that are geniuses both in terms of contribution and personally developed skill were religious.
    Sometimes radically.

    I simply don't see a corellation between intelligence and religion.
