We study the complex relationships between education and religiosity by examining the effects of various individual differences on both these variables. We show that omitting individual differences, particularly intelligence, may lead to dramatic changes in the sign of the effect of education on religiosity. These findings may explain previous conflicting reports about the relationship between education and religiosity.
