Does High IQ Trump God?

Is the brilliant atheist Richard Dawkins really all that much smarter than the equally brilliant evangelical Francis Collins, both of whom have outstanding careers in science? And do our values remain constant throughout our lives? How many of us believe today what we believed when we were much younger?

Many of us are still left wondering why we believe some of the things we believe so fervently. Is it because we are smart enough to accept a "novel" position that goes against our evolutionary history? Most likely, it's not that simple.
