  1. Not quite sure if the y-axis is IQ. If that were the case, then the US and Ireland are below the global average of 90, and most of Latin America scores as poorly as Sub-Saharan Africa (which seems unlikely due to their South European admixture).

      It’s not IQ perfectly but that is the general pattern. The Anglosphere is more religious than you’d expect from its average IQs, and that throws off the pattern.
