A Brief History of the IQ Test

Here is a segment of the documentary "Stupidity." Did you know there are actual classifications for morons, imbeciles, and idiots?

It is estimated that variations in IQ between individuals is around 20-50% due to heritability and 50%-80% due to environment. The enviroment factor alone can explain why Arabs in the middle east perform so poorly on IQ tests. Some researchers want to include genetic factors as cultural factors. For example, in Saudi Arabia, it is cultural for Muslim Arabs to marry close relatives (2nd cousins or closer).

Whenever I debate with Palestinians supporters, I usually come away with one of two thoughts: the person is a complete imbecile, or the person is lying so much that he/she believes the lies. Occasionally, I will come across someone who doesn't know enough about the conflict and has formed an opinion based on hanging with the left too much.
You can tell that there just isn't something right with certain people. Twilight Zone logic is used by those who support the Palestinians, for example. But mostly Palestinian supporters rely on half truths, lies, and fallacies in order to make a point.
Are they really stupid, or just deluded and/or insane. Check out for yourself by reading the comments:

Here is an example of the "logic" used by Pali supporters.

And to the Israel supporters, please don't hold back from commenting on the imbecile's blog.


  1. I think the Palestinian issue is a lot like Northern Ireland. You have to suspect the education of anyone who takes a stand on either side.

  2. Simon, we'll just have to disagree on this one.
