Firstly - love the avatar - Irish by chance?
I doubt it has anything to do with intelligence.
Respectfully disagree - the courses described are both hands on and academic. Also, because the clerics have weighed-in on this there is an element of
truth to the story regarding females outshining their male counterparts intellectually and my friends that I refer to in my OP verify that the males
in Uni over there get quite pissed when exam results are posted and the girls, as always, dominate the high end of the distribution curve.
One of my Iranian friends I refer to in the OP for instance - she will be a very good surgeon soon, and as you know the skill set required there is
both hands-on and academic.
Now, I own a very modified WRX and she has assisted me in stripping it down more than once - and she has only learnt mechanics from me and what she
has observed during those times - now I am asking for her advice on my car because she just knows and understands stuff - she's like Data from Star
And you can go down the line to High School and Grade School where women do much better as well.
Agreed - I have an 8 year old daughter and a 5 year old son and this comment^^^^^ is frighteningly apparent in her school here in Australia, I can
even see the difference between her and my son when at the same age. She is/was streaks ahead of my boy (alphabet, counting, reading etc etc)
Hmmm...........wonder why Satan gave Eve the apple and not Adam.........maybe its because he recognised her intended intelligence and she recoginized
the value of wisdom as being superior to that of Adams - he was just a "Yes" boy!!
