Why does the anti-theist think rational thinking is the mark of anti-theists, when irrational thinking is really the mark of the anti-theist?

Update:

Knightwulf: EXCELLENT ANSWER!

Update 2:

Jeff: Terrible answer, do you have mental health issues?  Struggle with logic?

Update 3:

God of Thunder: there is nothing more irrational than rejecting the testimonial evidence of God out of your own personal incredulity.

    Why do YOU LIE and prove everything you say is irrational?

    How unintelligent do you have to be to post to add to the evidence the religious lack the intelligence of atheists?!!!!!!!!!!!

    Research repeatedly shows atheists are 7.8% more intelligent than the religious.

    Only 7% of Americas Academy of science and 3% of the UK’s royal Academy are Christian!

    Neuroscientists have conducted the most comprehensive brain mapping to date of the cognitive abilities measured by the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS), the most widely used intelligence test in the world.

    The results show that the various factors that comprise a high or low IQ score

    depend on particular regions of the brain.

    The WAIS test is composed of four indices of intelligence, each consisting of several subtests, which together produce a full-scale IQ score. The four indices are the verbal comprehension index, which represents the ability to understand and to produce speech and use language; the perceptual organization index, which involves visual and spatial processing, such as the ability to perceive complex figures; the working memory index, which represents the ability to hold information temporarily in mind (similar to short-term memory); and the processing speed index.

    With the exception of processing speed, which appears scattered throughout the brain, the lesion mapping showed that the other three cognitive indices really do depend on specific brain regions.

    For example, lesions in the left frontal cortex were associated with lower scores on the verbal comprehension index; lesions in the left frontal and parietal cortex (located behind the frontal lobe) were associated with lower scores on the working memory index; and lesions in the right parietal cortex were associated with lower scores on the perceptual organization index.

    The study also revealed a large amount of overlap in the brain regions responsible for verbal comprehension and working memory, which suggests that these two now-separate measures of cognitive ability may actually represent the same type of intelligence, at least as assessed using the WAIS.

    It matters not if they are atheist because of this new type of intelligence or get it because they are atheist – it is a totally different and far more efficient process!!

    Also please note a meta-analysis by Personality and Social Psychology Review of 63 studies showed a significant negative association between intelligence and religiosity.

    In addition atheists have been found to live longer, suffer far less memory loss, Alzheimer’s and have less incidents of diabetes and other complaints!

    Other research shows believers have diminished intelligence because they rely on intuition and not facts and that the strength of religious conviction is inversely linked with intellect. It is so clear that Agnostics are smarter than believers but less intelligent than atheists!

    For the same reason the theist thinks rational thinking is the mark of theists when irrational thinking is really the mark of the theist.

    There's nothing more rational than rejecting unsupported claims about a god.

    EDIT:  So if you reject the personal testimony of Hindus, you're being irrational?
