Not intellectual.

When people profess atheism, never be intimidated by the thought that they are somehow intellectual. They are not. The Bible says that such a person is a fool (see Psa. 14:1; Rom. 1:22). So, make sure that you move from the intellect (the place of argument; see Rom. 8:7) to the conscience (the place of the knowledge of right and wrong; see Rom. 1:14). This is what Jesus and Paul did, as well as others (see Mark 10:17–22; Rom. 2:19–24).

Isaiah 19:11 Surely the princes of Zoan are fools; Pharaoh’s wise counselors give foolish counsel. How do you say to Pharaoh, “I am the son of the wise, The son of ancient kings?”12 Where are they? Where are your wise men? Let them tell you now, And let them know what the Lord of hosts has purposed against Egypt.13 The princes of Zoan have become fools; The princes of Noph are deceived; They have also deluded Egypt, Those who are the mainstay of its tribes.

    As if. Anything that requires you to park your brain and just ‘believe’ can not be considered intellectual or of good conscience. Blind faith in the scribblings of some desert tribes 2000 years ago always makes me question the intelligence of ‘believers’. I also always think it’s funny how people (of any religion) denounce the existence of others gods as false gods, but hold their god as the ‘one true’ god….it’s just a game of one-up-man-ship between imaginary friends.

    I can’t help but notice that both atheists and the godless left presume intellectual superiority over their opponents. They are so condescending that it’s infuriating. And when they find themselves overmatched in argument, they resort to name-calling and ad hominem argument, as if to say, “We don’t have to respond to your arguments since it’s plainly obvious that you’re a moron and we’re the intellectual elite.”
    A similar MO. A similar source?
