For certain people that are accustomed to being wrong--wrong answers in algebra, poor grades in biology, failure to understand cause and effect in history, inability to find a winning plan in a chess game--there is psychological comfort, indeed a sense of triumph, in the sense that one is correct on the basis of nothing more than belief in a myth.
I Corinthians 1:18-19
Are you insinuating that only stupid people believe in Jesus Christ? You might be hard pressed establishing that as fact.
EDIT: 1 Corinthians 1:18-19 does not condone anti-intellectualism or undermine the value of intelligence. What it does assert is that the simple message of the Gospel is more powerful than all the philosophy and wisdom in the entire godless world. No other message has the power to save. Those who rely upon the world's wisdom rather than God's wisdom will be perpetually frustrated by the simple message of the Cross; it will seem like foolishness to them.
One need not be particularly intelligent to disbelieve the message of the Gospel.
