    You sound like a high priest who is about to execute me for being an infidel or a pagan. What do you know about whether I have ignored or studied such information? Try this one on for size: Only fools talk about things they know nothing about. What have I studied sangha? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

    Really, where is said proof? Something tells me you don’t have it handy at this moment.

    Only a moron would imply that I don’t believe in global warming.

    Thanks for playing sangha.

    You know, science has already proven that man did not evolve from monkeys, so I don't think that bush* and obama were the best examples to use.

    Evolution, as it was taught when I was in grade school, is a pile of warm excrement based upon half truth and half religion, just as the current AGW theories are.

    BTW, I am an agnostic on all three issues, and just as smart as any of you.
    Holy **** your understanding of evolution is completely flawed. No, seriously, when us liberal elitists are making jokes about rednecks being too dumb to understand evolution, "If we evolved from monkeys how come monkeys aren't still turning into humans" is literally the phrase used to make fun of them.

    Jesus Christ. Wow. That's the best post I've ever seen.

    Nobody sane thinks evolution rules out the existence of God. God is, by definition, outside the realm of science. So, straw man and whatnot. Evolution and other aspects of science, however, do rule out certain interpretations of the bible.

    As usual certain candidates continue to embarrass America. At least we know who not to vote for.

    When international IQ comparisons are done they have to compare "like to like." For instance, Japan can do a national IQ test and decide to normalize their population at 100 so that they can use the results for internal purposes and see what's going on in the country. When it comes time to compare Japan to the US then they need to move their societal mean up from 100 to about 105-108 so that it is in line with the white American norm of 100. This is because when the tests are compared side by side, the Japanese score higher than white Americans.

    The upshot is that the US mean IQ is about 98, Canada's mean IQ is about 99, Norway's mean IQ is 100, China's mean IQ is 105 and Hong Kong's is about 108.
    Interestingly, at least on study has shown that improvement in early child care (from about 4 months) can result in IQ improvement that is greater than the noted IQ differential between many of these countries. Abecedarian Early Intervention Project - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The effects of improved early child care are even more notable in practical effect.

    It seems that I read somewhere that the head start program jumped IQ,s few percentage points. Don’t know where I read it as its been a few years. Plus head start is in the winger bulls eye for cuts.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Hate to break it to you Deuce but the theory of man/everything evolving from a single cell is real and very much part of the evolution theory.

    My use of the term “man from monkey” is just as amusing to agnostics like me who think people like you are fools for what you believe and to make fun of them as well.

    Sounds like you and I agree on this issue other than the fact that you felt the need to insult me by comparing me to a redneck and dumb people.

    If you don’t think life evolved from a single cell or whatever twist you want to put on it, be sure to clarify.

    Hell, pre/post natal nutrition could significantly affect IQ. Which is why we're taller. Or some people are...

    It's also the case that IQ scores have been increasingly significantly by the decade.
