IQ Determines How One View Religion and God?

Argument from inconsistent revelations

“Why should fewer academics believe in God than the general population? I believe it is simply a matter of the IQ. Academics have higher IQs than the general population,” says Ulster University academic Richard Lynn. “Several Gallup poll studies of the general population have shown that those with higher IQs tend not to believe in God.”

The quote above is taken from this article which can be found here. Sometimes it baffles me as to how so called experts can come up with a study that is largely reductionist and simplistic as this. As if to say that it is having a certain amount of IQ determines that one is better than the others. I have no grudges on atheist, who have their right to disbelieve in God but to base their arguments on IQ is somewhat a joke. In that sense, how will they make reasoned arguments to people with lesser IQ’s, if what they are propagating is the truth? This is because if one is hampered with low IQ, then they are in no sense able to make reasoned decisions based on what they decipher as true or not. Having no viable framework to think for themselves, isn’t militant atheism a form of oppressive “religion” in how they too like “religion” (in how they understand it) make a case for their own brand of propaganda? Isn’t “militant atheism” a form of imperialism in itself, where the elite rules in what is viable fact to believe?
