Several observations support that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not anti-intellectual.
Rate of Patents Issued to Utah Inventors Exceeds National Growth During Past Two Decades:
Recent studies that suggest that the LDS community has produced more scientists per capita than most religious groups in twentieth-century America:
Utah has produced a disproportionate share of mathematicians:
Latter-day Saints attending Harvard Business School are so common that people joke about being dominated by the three “Ms” (the other two are McKinsey and the military):
Los Alamos, which has the highest per-capita of PhDs in the world, is ~8% LDS. Bascially 4 times the national average.
These observations do not prove anything, but claims that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is anti-intellectual do not seem to be well founded.
