I thought this was one of the most interesting questions I've heard posed in a long time (heard it said by my girlfriend who heard it in a class).
A Pakistani Sociology teacher. To the best of my knowledge, not particularly religious.
Are you completely sure the question wasn't "Who is more dangerous - a religous person who is educated, or an uneducated, non-religous person?"

As far as the question as you've written it - it's pretty obvious from the current administration, and the Taliban, and the Hutus, and the Al Qaeda, and the IDF that the religous pretty much trump everyone as far as dangerousness goes.

I didn't know Pakistani's had much of a choice. I guess it's important to qualify the terms.

Well fine. I liked it. But then again, I'm a simpleminded boy from Texas.

I'd say that could be taken as equally as obvious. There are many ways of looking at these questions-- one must not forget there are like a million other variables that affect the outcome.

Who is more dangerous, a bicyclist with herpes, or a car driver w/o herpes?

Maybe it should've read 'potentially more dangerous', i don't know.. i guess anyone who thinks they know a lot when they don't actually seem to can be an irritation, i think that's as far as i'd go with this.
