In honor of David B. - IQ & religion (by country)

Waiting for Christmas Eve deliveries at my girlfriend's office, kind of bored, so I decided to plot IQ vs. "religion important" (data taken from Lynn & Vanhanen & the Pew survey). I got a correlation of -0.886. I converted the excel to HTML below.

Original excel file + chart is here

-0.886151153
