One of the kids in the library came across an interesting article today at the school. I’m a janitor. I was cleaning up a spill at the time. Kitty litter is very underrated. For my money it’s better then baking soda! Helps makes mean chili. (shh secret ingredient)
It’s a Catholic school. The kids got all upset. High school kids. He’d been reading the paper on the computer from England and he came across this article. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/2111174/Intelligent-people-‘less-likely-to-believe-in-God’.html
So i Started to read it. The nuns used to beat me when I went to school. I told them, back when I used to go to school. So the kids were like read this and I did.
I was offended. Here is where I respond to article written by Richard Lynn.
click please to read more.
Professor Richard Lynn, emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University, said many more members of the “intellectual elite” considered themselves atheists than the national average.
A decline in religious observance over the last century was directly linked to a rise in average intelligence, he claimed.
what are you telling kids this for? Don’t you know they can read this. There very impression able and to say this like this to make them feel stupid forr believing in something so simple as God is a disgrace. Every1 should believe in God. He is real.
School is different then when I went there a few many years ago. They don’t beat the kids any more. The kids these days want to learn. They used to call us knuckleheads.
God help you if you made trouble. Teachers were allowed to hit you. BOY DID THEY
No longer. All the nuns died. Kids these day want to learn anyway. That’s why they are smarter. We used to have to go into a trade right out of school. Sometimes we didn’t even finish high school.
I never finished high school. Too much money. My family didn’t want me to go to public school because of pledge of alleigance controversy.
So I got this job & my prayers were answered.
I was a honor student in school before I dropped out. But I was also a troublemaker.
this Richard Lynn sounds loike trouble maker. But I was also a knucklehead like him.
Professor Lynn, who has provoked controversy in the past with research linking intelligence to race and sex, said university academics were less likely to believe in God than almost anyone else.
A survey of Royal Society fellows found that only 3.3 per cent believed in God – at a time when 68.5 per cent of the general UK population described themselves as believers.
A separate poll in the 90s found only seven per cent of members of the American National Academy of Sciences believed in God.
this country was founded on religion. Why do u think we celebrate COLUMBUS daY?
Professor Lynn said most primary school children believed in God, but as they entered adolescence – and their intelligence increased – many started to have doubts.
What I say my be controversial but i think it has to do with the tenneagers getting depressed. they start using the drugs and sooner or later they get addicted to pot and b4 u know it there like different ppl.
So ya there is a problem but b/c of drugs thats why they think that way.
When I discovered cigarettes in high school I started 2 act diff. too.
Cigarettes aren’t even drugs!
He told Times Higher Education magazine: “Why should fewer academics believe in God than the general population? I believe it is simply a matter of the IQ. Academics have higher IQs than the general population. Several Gallup poll studies of the general population have shown that those with higher IQs tend not to believe in God.”
That pot magazine1?
He said religious belief had declined across 137 developed nations in the 20th century at the same time as people became more intelligent.
But Professor Gordon Lynch, director of the Centre for Religion and Contemporary Society at Birkbeck College, London, said it failed to take account of a complex range of social, economic and historical factors.
“Linking religious belief and intelligence in this way could reflect a dangerous trend, developing a simplistic characterisation of religion as primitive, which – while we are trying to deal with very complex issues of religious and cultural pluralism – is perhaps not the most helpful response,” he said.
Dr Alistair McFadyen, senior lecturer in Christian theology at Leeds University, said the conclusion had “a slight tinge of Western cultural imperialism as well as an anti-religious sentiment”.
Dr David Hardman, principal lecturer in learning development at London Metropolitan University, said: “It is very difficult to conduct true experiments that would explicate a causal relationship between IQ and religious belief. Nonetheless, there is evidence from other domains that higher levels of intelligence are associated with a greater ability – or perhaps willingness – to question and overturn strongly felt institutions.”
its like what came first chicken or the egg?
But we all know God came first. And on seven 7th he rested!
That’s what ill do now.
Goodbye & may God bless America!!!!!!!!
