3. It's nurture not nature

 

I know plenty of otherwise intelligent people with advanced degrees, liberal ideologies and intellectual personalities who have no more real understanding of what science is or is about than a Bob Jones U administrator. They accept it as true because they like their toys and advanced health care but if you were to put one of them up against a televangelist in a debate you would not hear science debating religion, you would hear two religions debating. It's pretty easy to turn science into religion or to assimilate pieces of science into religion.

It's not about the level of intellect, it's about applying whatever you have to the right focus.
