IQ vs. Religion

The graph shown above relates the arithmetic mean IQ measured in various country's populations, to the fraction of each country's population that believes religion is very important.

The US value is circled in red.

So, does it imply religion clouds our minds with untrue facts?
Obviously, the response that will depend on who you ask... religious people will say no (or something), not-so-religious people might say yes, non-religious people will say yes (or something).

At the least though, it's interesting to consider.
