He literally said Quantum theory yields much, but it hardly brings us close to the Old One’s secrets. I, in any case, am convinced He does not play dice with the universe.”
He also specifically states he does not believe in the god of the bible, rather he is closer to Spinoza's view of "god". And then goes on to explain that he basically means nature.

That wasn't a multisource, that was like an original and 5 photocopies.
...not to mention that the pseudoscientific methodology being utilized here is inevitably flawed since it doesn't account for the much larger population of humans who have never even taken an IQ test...assuming, of course, that an IQ test is an accurate measure of intelligence.

And it certainly doesn't take a genius to formulate this conclusion.

The only reason this thread was started is because he got his ass handed to him in the other thread about atheists are generally smarter than theists. This thread does not change that.

Out Of The Top 10 Most Intelligent People In The World: At Least 8 Think God Exists And 6 are Believing Christians

Out Of The Top 10 Most Intelligent People In The World: At Least 8 Think God Exists And 6 are Believing Christians – Scott M. Sullivan
Hilarious. Not only is the list incorrect (the highest IQ ever measured was well over 200, not 198 like your fact-proof article maintains), but it's blatantly "leading" despite the weasel words at the bottom " Now to be sure, none of this is to be taken as an argument for God’s existence, nor is it a claim about the relevancy of IQ tests regarding this question. But since no one would deny the intelligence of these people, it is, at least, yet another example of how off base many claims made by modern atheists can be. "

The real question is this: are the theists so desperate not to be thought of as morons that they would lie and disseminate lies to bolster their assertion they aren't simple-minded children and dullards? I think in light of the past history of theists that lying is not only likely, but PROBABLE. I know Garry Kasparov (Twitter, been a fan of his for a long time), and he's not a religious man in any way, shape, or form. Yet he's on your list, lol.
