Comments

Generalities aside, the manner wherein Atheists are smarter than Christians is well elucidated in the following dialogue between fictional FBI Agent Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter (from the movie Manhunter, The Silence of the Lambs’ original prequel):

Will Graham: I thought you might enjoy the challenge. Find out if you're smarter than the person I'm looking for.

Hannibal Lecter: Then, by implication, you think you're smarter than I am, since it was you who caught me.

Will Graham: No, I know I'm not smarter than you.

Hannibal Lecter: Then how did you catch me?

Will Graham: You had - disadvantages.

Hannibal Lecter: What disadvantages?

Will Graham: You're insane.

Surely you're not using Freud as an example of rational thought!

"Such an attitude fits perfectly into Freud’s theory"
Neither does it fit into a definition of Christianity.

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
