Again it depends on how the test was administered, there are so many different variables that can invalidate these, that the test is laughable. This is one reason why many Atheists get looked upon in a negative light. The way they come across trying to act superior to everyone else and trying to justify it, like you're doing now is extremely insulting and if the situation were reversed I'd probably be banished or facing a lawsuit.

It was an example that many people can understand.
