Name one Educated person that believes in god, like scientists for example.......oh wait. You can't. Some people are Atheists because they paid attention to science lessons. I'm one of them.

The study also shows that Americans with higher incomes attend religious services more often, and those who have experienced unemployment at some point over the past 10 years attend less often. In addition, the study finds that those who are married (especially if they have children), those who hold more conservative views toward premarital sex, and those who lost their virginity later than their peers, attend religious services more frequently.
The higher educated tend to earn more income and vice versa. Meaning the article title is not necessarily spot on. I believe it's mostly have something to do with income level rather than the level of education. When you have higher income you tend to have a more positive view on life hence more incline to stay in worship if you already are religious. But the rocky times might give you a different or new perspective and people might be disappointed or dissatisfied with their religion during that time.
