Anyone from OK care to comment on the (intelligence?) of the population there?
I'm from OK and it's simple, trust me, though the study is done in Oklahoma, these results could likely be duplicated in alot of places.
Oklahoma is in the Bible belt.
Everyone there is highly religious, well actually, highly Christian. Other religions are looked down upon, and there are few congregations outside of the word of Jesus.
It's a heavily Republican state, interested in things such as Creationism.
They vote hard line conservative and believe themselves to have conservative "values," though what those values are beyond greedlust for money, I don't know.
People are taught not to think, not to ask questions, certainly never to question authority.
Schools are no longer places of education, nor were they ever in America. From the beginning they have been child prisons to indoctrinate students and teach them to do pointless busywork in their awful jobs later on in life.
Nobody is encouraged to learn or think. People here are one dimensional.
I am not trying to bash Oklahoma, like I said, I was born and raised there myself after all and still have plenty of family there.
But you surprisingly will not find people too interested in learning when it's been beaten into them to shut up and never ask questions about anything, the law, religion, the government, the media, etcetera.
It's depressing, but the study's results speak for itself.

What did Gore Vidal call it?.. Ahh yes.. The United States of Amnesia.
