Lemuel Calhoon

We have a great many illegal aliens who are illiterate third world pesants dragging down our average.

Debbie

You are correct, Lemuel, it couldn't have anything to do with the Hillbilly White Trash group in America. We are all highly educated in the areas that count, heh

Simon

Yes, and let's not forget the hillbilly red neck morons who can't spell "peasants"

Tralala

Hello...lets just say that this iq "league" sucks...i'm from Serbia thank you. U know what the funniest thing is? Everyone i know, wich consists of a preety large amount of ppl is around 110-115, I'm 139, and 5 of my best friends are 130-150...

BTW Does the country with the highest I.Q. win wars?

Nope, taht is the stupidest thing i heard since JOrge Bush said "I beleve that man and fish can coexist"...
Winning a war is mostly about the manpower, political influece, and military strengh, not IQ...
If we, Serbs, have an averega iq of 80, than americans have an avrage iq of 40 to beleve all that political crap ther president tells em day after day...
Sorry for the spelling

I know its an old post, but...Why were you so shocked Debbie? The US has been falling behind in technology and science for quite some time now. We are certainly among the slowest when it comes to Internet speeds.

As recently noted between Ortho and myself, we are well into the times of the "knowledge economy" and where "knowledge is power." Unfortunately, we find outselves surrounded by alot of people with half charged batteries.

"Illegal aliens who drag our average" Lol I'm the son of two illegal aliens and I have a IQ of 136( standerized IQ test) and at the risk of sounding narcistic. My IQ is higher then the lowly IQ of 98 that the united states it's the redneck fucking war mongols of the United states that bring our avarage down and Fucking arrogant fools like "lemuel calhoon" that bring our average Iq down oh yes also idiots like Lemuel shouldn't be able to even turn on there comps if all they will do if fill the Net with useless CRAP

Stormwarning

But, please remember that its not your "IQ" that counts, but how much of it that you use.

You would think that someone with an IQ of 136 could make a point without having to resort to F word profanity. You would also think they would not use poor grammar and run-on sentences in their diatribe.

I would venture to say this drive by commenter does not have an IQ of 136. Even if he does, if you don't have a command of the English language, you will still sound like an idiot.

The average IQ of blacks in the USA is 85, and the average of mestizos entering the USA is 83. About half of blacks and of latinos do not graduate high school. It would be interesting to see the IQ of the USA would be without blacks and latinos averaged in. It would undoubtedly be higher. (And the rate of violent crime would be lower.)

The lower IQ of France in interesting, as France has the highest population of Jews of any nation in Europe. The average IQ of Israel is 90 to 95, depending on who you ask. The Jews with the highest IQ are those mixed with Europeans. Those from Africa and asia are lower.

Jews in New England havent' seemed to lower the high IQ of those state. But these are mostly European jews. As a side note, the state with the highest jewish populations also usually have a higher number of AIDS cases.

The average IQ of Japan is about five to ten points higher than the USA. But they lost WWII miserably. One thing that IQ tests do not reveal is the level of creativity. In war, it helps if you are able to invent new weapons. Orientals are notably non-creative.

During WWII, there were shortages of vital materials. The Germans were very innovative in impovising new and different materials. The Japanese proved unable to improvise anything; they basically stayed with what they had learned from the West before they bombed Pearl Harbor.

There is some rumor that Japan tested a nuclear bomb in Korea during that war. And there is also rumor of the same about Germany.

The smartest people in WWII were the Swiss; they stayed out of it. It was a stupid war, with white people killing each other.

ADP

You must be kidding. I mean you must be fucking kidding. Only the dumbest of mongrels could posit arguments such as these and then make the claim that they themselves are intelligent. HAHAHAHA(I'm actually laughing out loud). "Narcistic" narcissistic. "Standerized". Standardized. It's not even the spelling, and I do not bring it up for the spelling, but it is the corresponding phonetics that are so stupidly overlooked. A couple basic points: Casting off Richard Lynn and his studies as nonsense, is nonsense. He is a prestigious scientist with a long track record of cogently articulated and exhaustive studies on intelligence. 5 friends with IQs between 130 and 150. Oh my lord. Sunny Meadow has a (an) IQ of 136. HAHAHAHA. Oh man, we really are fucked. To claim such an IQ or that you know 5 people with IQs between 130 and 150 demonstrates that neither of you understand the mathematics of IQ testing or standard deviations. Look it up. You will understand. Then demonstrating your own ignorance in a public forum is nothing short of a direct manifestation of your own intellectual inferiority. Stupidity is a problem, but stupidity + ignorance is recipe for disaster. Oh and the comments about Ashkenazis and the Japanese are blatantly indicative of a white idiot with very little understanding of ethnic or populational genetics. Secondly, national IQ was about 3 points higher or more 60-70 years ago. I will leave the rest for you idiots to figure out. If you need any help, I'll probably be back at some point so just leave questions about comments by others that you do not understand or regarding nuance of which you are without insight.

Debbie

ADP: Who is your comment directed toward? I simply posted the article. You seem awfully upset by it.

Reverend Grouch

Boy! It's a good thing you didn't mention God in the post. ADP really would have demonstrated his intellect by showing his mastery of the English language.

You know how people like him just hate God!

KAK

It's the comedy hour...It's just got to be the comedy hour.

Israel is full of Arabs.

Stupid people should be killed off.

Jinx

ADP: you said "Secondly, national IQ was about 3 points higher or more 60-70 years ago."

Have you heard of the Flynn Effect?

Anton

"it's the redneck fucking war mongols of the United states that bring our avarage down"

For someone with an IQ of 136 one would think you would know how to spell "average" correctly... and I think the phrase you're looking for is "war mongers."

Unfortunately for you though, statistics show that it is actually blacks and hispanics (the non white ones) who are the least educated and intelligent. They do the poorest on standardized tests and are the least likely to graduate high school. It is not racist to suggest that they bring the national average down.

"Secondly, national IQ was about 3 points higher or more 60-70 years ago."

Further evidence that blacks and hispanics drag down the average. The percentage of whites back then was exceptionally higher than it is today.

1. IQ test only test kwowledge in school NOT test other telent such as leadership, communication, imagination.
2. Who won the war? Take a look the history in the world.
People of poor countries, rude, no food always beat the people of rich, civilian countries in order to get food and survive.
3. Alien don't take IQ test. That's no point that they draw the score low.
In countries of Asia, people's IQ test score is very high.

Q

Although Lynn's findings as to the IQ variations between different European countries seem plausible and are in all likelihood valid, I don't agree with his theory that these minor IQ differences can be considered significant factors in determining who will win a war. Compared to factors such as resources, manpower, political influence and the competence of the decision-makers in high-ranking positions, the fact that one country has an average IQ of 106 and another an average IQ of 99 would hardly make a difference - certainly not a difference big enough to be observable or testable on any level. Maybe all other factors being completely equal... but when has that ever been the case?

John if stupid people were killed off who would do the manual labor. If everyone who you considered stupid was killed off there would be an absurd number of people being killed. The absolute lack of intelligence started with the Spread of Christianity and other religions like it. I do not have anything against the ideas spread by religions. The fanatics who take the stories seriously and ignore the true messages are the people who are holding back the world. The point in time with the highest amount of religious fanaticism was the dark ages. If you look at it now-a-days the fundamentalists are the ones protesting funerals and research facilities. Not even mentioning blowing themselves up in the Middle East. So although killing them would result in a massive jump in theoretical productivity it is better to just argue with them and slowly gain ground and allow them to still pull ore out of the ground, fix your plumbing, and create steel.

May this thread never die...I am surprised that Italy ranked so high. I wounder how that data was collected, mostly from the North maybe. Serbia, Croatia and all that area probably had a lot of brain drain during the commie years. They will probably be on par with Greece and Russia in a generation.

Thomas Haagensen

Alright i was born in America i am 19 years of age my I.Q. is a 150. I am one of those exceptionally gifted people, the reason i am so intelligient is because of my diagnose. Number 1 Skitso-Effective Dissorder Depression type 2. Major Depression Dissorder Severe 3. A.D.H.D. 4. Borderline Perssonallity Dissorder 5. P.T.S.D. 6. Anxiety Dissorder 7. Psychosis. It is known to some that mentally ill patients or Psychotic people like me have an exceptionally high I.Q. I met a patient in the state hospital in Evenstan Wyoming that had an I.Q. of 180 no lie but the sad thing is that the meds he needed to help him live somewhat of a normal life decreased his I.Q. all the way down to an 89 the meds i was on also dropped mine. This is why i am no longer on anything but A.D.H.D. meds because they help with my intelligients oh and by the way i am whiter, then the brightest light, this illuminated sight, could blind somebody, who knows it might, oh and if it comes to it i could most definately throw down in a fight, lets just say that America's Close Combat Training is the best in the entire world no lie, statistcally it's right on the dot, oh and i've fought, i've fought a lot, anybody out there i can stop but if it's a cop i'll stop, stop and talk, talk with the cop. Oh and by the way the guy that had an I.Q. of 180 i did not mention his name for a reason i am not aloud to talk to anybody that i met in the State Hospital. One more thing though, something a ton of people don't reallize is that the people with exceptionally high I.Q.s actually tend to mess up on a lot of stuff only because a lot of stuff in this world is designed to be easy the things that people in a regular society are actually quite difficult to somebody with an intellectual mind such as mine if somebody understands what It's like to experiance what i'm saying here comment about it it'll make me feel better to know that there are more people out there that are gifted but also cursed like me.

jimmy cormack

What about the Scots, given that they are 20 months away from a referendum on independence? They seem to have achieved rather a lot in the fields of science and medicine especially. Lookup Scottish inventors and you will see.
