Hm? Was that Krazy Jethro, the person to whom my post was directed at that answered? No, it was intrepid. Still I will answere you. Oh, and I
didn't respond right away because I don't sit here all day waiting for a response. I was at the movies with my friends.
A.) Of course you should bow down. I'm smarter than everyone everywhere. In fact, find someone smarter than me, and cooler than me at the same time
and maybe I'll consider talkign to them. I rule.
My point is that I never said I was smarter than anyone, i don't know where you got that from. I said people as a whole are still stupid, but they
haven't gotten any dumber. And yes, in a way being open minded is a sign of intelligence. People are more edjucated about things. People are just
lazier. The knowlege is shifting. Most people don't know advanced math as well because we have calculators. Oh right, that's laziness!! How many
people could re-format a computer in the 60's? People are smart in different areas. I don't see any statistics that prove people read MORE back
then either. As intrepid said earlier, intelligence can be measured in many forms. Same goes for how it's learned. By the way, how old are you?
Were you even around 40 years ago to see if we've gotten dumber? I know I'm only 17, but through reading history you can see that we've gotten
more intelligent. If you want proof, look around you. Hell, look right in front of you at the COMPUTER MONITOR in front of you which couldn't even
be comprehended a few decades ago. Like I said, the knowlege is shifting and I still think there is more of it. If you're just talking about the
every day common Joe, they probably haven't gained or lost much either way.
Was I wrong when I corrected Jethro about I.Q? Did I say that I.Q. is all that matters in being smart? You're reading something that's not there
Intrepid, or mis-interpreting. He said that intelligence is a born trait. I corrected him and said that I.Q. is a born trait. Intelligence CAN be
achieved. As far as ignoring my posts, I have respect for you for actually replying. Not that I'm above anyone, but people just don't want to put
in the effort when I make a good point.
