Christians are less educated than religious minorities such as Hindus
Interesting article. Not too surprising though.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/13/world/....html?_r=0

A few highlights

"There were 267 million Christians in the United States when the data was collected, but only 36 percent of them had a postsecondary education, including college or a vocational school, the researchers said. That made them the least-educated religious group in the country."

"Jews in the United States were more than twice as likely as Christians to have a postsecondary degree, and Hindus were almost three times as likely, Pew said. Buddhists, Muslims and those who said they were religiously unaffiliated were also more likely to have a college degree than those who identified themselves as Christians."

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Or in other words parallel the ethnic breakdowns.
South Asian are among the best educated and highest income earners in the US, with no real difference among south Asian Christians or Hindhus in America.

Why would you need to know anything when your invisible friend is the guy who created the whole universe?????

......

If ignorance = bliss.

And religion = truth.

Wouldn't ignorance of religion be truly blissful????

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

It's interesting that in the US at least many of the immigrants are more educated than many of the Christians who hate them so much. That doesn't seem to be as true in Europe, according to this repost.

Not all immigrants are the same here. Most people don't seem to have much of an issue with the brain drain immigrants, that come into this country through legal channels. It illegals, and perhaps muslim immigrants, primary because of prejudices regarding terrorism, that they seem to fuss over.

Secondly the US is pretty selective about the immigrants they take in from non-bordering areas of the globe. We try to take in the cream of the crop of those foreign countries, so it's not surprising that on average our immigrants score higher, than the average American.
