Brilliant Theists

MYTH
Theists are stupid

Being a theist does not entail intellectual deficiency. Johann Kepler, Blaise Pascal, Nicholas Steno, Charles Babbage, Gregor Mendel, William Ramsay, Robert Boyle, Roger Bacon, Isaac Newton, Joseph Lister, James Simpson, Louis Agassiz, William Kelvin, James Clerk Maxwell, Galileo Galilei, Louis Pasteur, and more than 132 other prominent, intelligent philosophers [1] are theists. And what about the Church Fathers and Doctors through the centuries? Those saints are intellectual and spiritual giants!
