Dear New Zealand atheist and British/UK agnostic,

Short messages for you two can be found below.

Message to the New Zealand atheist Ace McWicked

Alcoholism was a serious social problem in the former atheistic Soviet Union.[1] Between 1940 and 1980, this atheist state had the largest increase of the amount of alcohol usage in the developed world.[2] See also: Atheism and alcoholism

Ace McWicked, you wrote:

"coming out of my retirement from RW to briefly comment on this in that I can't believe after all these years... [User: Conservative] ...is still at this sh&#. *#@& man, do something else. It has been nearly 10 years since I first started reading CP and editing here and in that time I have gotten married, gotten divorced, had a child, bought a house, traveled to several different countries, worked my way up the corporate ladder, gotten a new girlfriend, crashed 2 cars, had a health scare, quit smoking, quit drinking, started drinking again, buried 2 family members, written half a book, moved in and out of three cities in 2 different countries and basically carried on with my life."

My response

Please see:

Message to the British agnostic Mercian

Brain researchers have conducted a number of studies focusing on the differences between atheists and the religious. See: Atheism and the brain and Atheism and intelligence

Mercian,

Two things stand out for me. How does one of the editors know he is in the 99.925 % IQ if "Only pretentious people take written IQ tests and/or join Mensa"? And wouldn't such intelligent people point out that it would be "Users:Conservative" not "User:Conservative"?--Mercian (talk) 23:16, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

My response

There are metrics that are correlated to IQ such as ACT/SAT/GRE scores, Chess ELO rating, Thinkfast levels, etc. (see: IQ scores and correlation with ACT/SAT/GRE scores and Chess Rating ELO and IQ Score Correlation and Bill McGaugh's Thinkfast Page).

At least two of the members of the User: Conservative editing team scored high on a college entrance exam (I am not sure how the third editor of the User: Conservative editing team did on his/her college entrance exam(s).). At least one member of the User: Conservative editing team scored extremely high on his/her college entrance exams.

At least one member of the User: Conservative took the now defunct Word Dynamo test and scored extremely high on the test (see: User: Conservative and the Word Dynamo test).

At least on of the editors of the User: Conservative editing team: knows his past ACT score, has some recollections of his/her past Chess ELO scores obtained from Yahoo chess, took the Word Dynamo test and owns a copy of the software package Thinkfast.

Based on the data I have at my disposal, at least 2 members of the User: Conservative editing team could join Mensa if they desired to (I don't have enough data on the third member of the User: Conservative editing team to know either way).

By the way, Conservapedia's Atheism and intelligence article has a top 10 ranking at a popular search engine whose name begins with a G. Also, I still maintain that nice and demure ladies tend to eschew Ariana Grande concerts!
