Exactly one-half of the population of America has an IQ of 100 or less. And, even if the majority believe in space aliens and ghosts...should we let those who are uneducated and unqualified dictate the course of science?
Seemed to work out pretty well for him and for our country.
But of course if the annointed elete don't wish the great unwashed to be educated and that the annointed ones are only those that have the answers then that's probably not an issue.
But to me at least that kinda sounds like how liberals operate.
Of course not. Those ignorant, unwashed masses of little people have no business doing anything other than what WE tell them to do.
I read your comment just as I was falling off yet another turnip truck so I may have misinterpreted what you wrote. But it seemed a bit elitist, don't you think?
No. 100 is the average IQ, not the median IQ (the median defines the point at which half are above and half below). It's very unlikely that the average and the median IQ values are exactly the same--this is only true for a perfect normal distribution. It's probably roughly true, but it's certainly not exactly true.
Just a statistics nit (and common error).
It seems that somebody needs to be educated on the difference between a mean and a median. Perhaps you should stick to your area of specialization.
And from this, your conclusion is . . . ?
...should we let those who are uneducated and unqualified dictate the course of science?
It doesnt seem that we ought. But, should we then demand that those without a voice in the matter nevertheless must share in paying the bill? (Lets see . . . what was that called back in 1774/75)
And 90+% of Academe don't know that Socialism is slavery of masochists by government.. and Communism(which is socialism) is slavery of mascochists by by a sadistic government..
What then IS IQ.?.. or intelligence for that matter..
The fool has said in his heart, there is no God..
Nietzsche is dead, God is quite healthy...
Is Jesus GOD.?.. If he WAS he still is, if he wasn't he still isnt..
