It's clear that many highly intelligent people are Christians.

Belief in magic and gods has been around since the evolution of homo sapiens, 250,000 years ago. That's only 2500 centuries, a drop in the bucket compared with the age of the earth (formed 4,500,000,000 years ago). Oldest life forms appeared ~4,000,000,000 years ago (that's counting to a million 4,000 times BTW).

The knowledge that there is no such thing as god is a hard pill to swallow, even for the brightest.

It will be another million years (or longer) before everyone realizes that belief in god = belief in magic.

Also, anyone realize how big the universe is? I need to go look up those ASTOUNDING numbers again...
