Because the intelligent would rather know than believe.
You believe plenty of things you don't know

1) Existence of external world
2) Your memory is accurate (mainly)
3) The fact you existence 5minutes ago

etc..

Am I the only one laughing at this? you are proving arrggh right. He is saying there is no argument for being religious just as there is no argument for racism. However, you say it is a belief and not asscoiated with intelligence but 10 minutes ago ppl were calling racists "stupid"
Racism is not about putting faith in an unknown. It's about prejudice. Therefore it's stupidity.

It's not stupid to be religious, and not intelligent to be secular.

You are now welcome to join me in laughing at yourself now.

While rascism is not putting faith in a non-existant entity as is the case with religion, you could argue that rascism is a belief in itself. By that logic, how can you argue rascists are stupid? It's just a belief.

But with god we can't know he doesn't exist. With these grey areas it's up to your belief.

Racism is not a belief, it's a judgment. And a stupid one at that.

By that logic, I could say we can't know leprauchauns don't exist. Also, you cannot prove that my god, Bob, who I have just invented right now, doesn't exist.

Fine by me. It doesn't matter if I don't know or can't prove, I choose not to have a belief on the matter.

Corey, there is ample evidence for the existence of the external world. I can touch, feel, smell and interact with external objects. There is not one single shred of evidence for the existence of god, except for jesus christ's occasional cammeo appearances on the dishcloths of hysterical devout christian nuns in south america.
