Yads - they're pretty much the only people in this group with anything
sensible to say. And I think you're younger than at least half of us. Which
means, according to the report you're so excited about, you are also dumber.

I think Aggy is younger still. So it's hardly surprising that neither of you
are able to work out what the article is actually saying.

You are a demented old fool. The article is saying that men's IQ's have
been falling by 7 points every generation since political correctness
took over in the classroom and subjects like maths and English were
dumbed down so that girls could get better grades at the expense of boys
grades. You just have to look at the GCSEs getting easier, and easier,
and easier, and girls copying each other's coursework, and then
complaining when coursework was removed, and at the difficulty of easy
maths questions which an 11 year old from this country could easily do
40 years ago, and an 8 year from any Asian country where PC stupidity
hasn't got a foothold can do today without batting an eyelid.

Then there's the alleged influence of television, which as we've seen
from Doctor Who has deteriorated after it was taken over by PC bigots
with low IQs compared to those in the 70s, and used to brainwash viewers
instead of consisting of plots which stand up to scrutiny and educating
them about actual science.

Political correctness has destroyed television with writers like Moffat
and Chibnall, it's destroyed the movies with writers like J J Abrams,
its destroyed music with the chart full of garbage, it's destroyed
comedy, and it's destroyed literature.

Binky is so cute when he learns a new "word", then mangles it and then
beats it to death without regard to meaning or context.

He is so speshul that way.

No. The article didn't mention political correctness at all. Not once.

And even if it did say "IQs have been falling... since political

Correctness has made people dumber!" (e.g. They could both be unrelated
side effects of something else.)

Most IQ tests rely heavily on literacy and numeracy to come up with their
scores. Numeracy has been in decline since the early 70s, when electronic
hand held calculators came into use. Literacy (in the sense of powerful
linguistic skill, as possessed by readers and writers) has been in decline
since television took over as the major entertainment medium, and
accelerated with the advent of games consoles.

IQ tests do not measure intelligence. They measure the ability to perform
IQ tests and their results are biased by educational and cultural factors
including but not limited to numeracy, literacy, familiarity and fluency in
the language used, gender, religion, aptitude for logic over emotion, etc.

You would expect games consoles to improve problem solving skills more

You would expect games consoles to improve problem solving skills more

IQ tests do not measure intelligence. They measure the ability to perform
IQ tests and their results are biased by educational and cultural factors
And that ability has been lost thanks to political correctness.
So IQs are higher for those kids who are taught the old-fashioned, non-PC way?
Yes, it seems. PC brainwashing has made people's minds feeble, unable to
think logically (which is what you need to do to take IQ tests), or
think for themselves. Grammar Schools were closed down and replaced with
Comprehensives, so people who had ability were placed in classes with
people who didn't even want to learn, and the class was taught at the
pace of the slowest. To compensate the examples were made easier, so the
CSE was created, where the highest grade was equivalent to the third
highest grade at O-Level, and then the GCSE which was easier still. The
next wave of stupidity, probably coming from the feeble minds of those
'educated' under the CSE of GCSE was to keep adding new higher grades
because the exam was so easy, and then when they ran out of ways of
adding new top grades they reversed the grade numbering so the top grade
was 9 and they could add higher grades above that as the exam gets
easier. What these imbeciles don't realize is that adding new top grades
completely devalues the exam, especially for those who score the top
grade before it changes from 9 to 10, and then to 11, because employers
will think that someone who scored an 9, two years earlier, is less
intelligent than someone who scores an 11 now. These people are absolute
morons! You don't add new higher grades if more and more people keep
scoring the top grade on an exam that keeps getting easier and easier,
you make the exam more difficult and change the existing grade boundaries.

No it doesn't. Political correctness is about being intolerant and
disrespecting the majority, suppressing freedom of speech, and freedom
of expression; all in pursuit of a deranged dogma, not about favoring
what is best over what is isn't; but about favoring the stupid over the
intelligent, the sick over the healthy, the week over the strong, the
disabled over the able-bodied, the minority over the majority, the
extremists over the moderates; all by bullying people into submission,
not by explaining things rationally or logically, but by brainwashing

Socially conservative people, those who hold the same prejudices as yourself, Aggy, have a lower IQ. Proof: https://www.livescience.com/18132-intelligence-social-conservatism-racism.html

So it's no wonder that you have a problem interpreting reports and twist them to try and support your own warped point of view.

You are interpreting the findings incorrectly. What the data actually
shows is the complete opposite.

It is people who support Political Correctness who have a lower IQ as
shown by them giving positive responses to questions concerning
prejudice and authoritarianism.

Both the Communists and the Nazis supported racist and authoritarian
ideologies and both of these movements were left wing. The Fascists also
supported supported racist and authoritarian ideologies and the were
right wing.

Are you trying to tell me that this research is saying that Communists
and Nazis have high IQs and are good, whereas Fascists have low IQs and
are bad? Bollocks.

What the research actually shows is that people who have authoritarian
and racist views have low IQ, since no one was asked the questions are
you a conservative or liberal, and in America a liberal would be
equivalent to a moderate conservative in the UK.

The research proves therefore that those who favour Political
Correctness have low IQs since people who support Political Correctness
are not only authoritarian--people who have no respect of freedom of
speech or expression, as shown by their censorship of anything that goes
against their ideology--but they are also extremely prejudiced and
racist, just like the Nazis, Communists, and Fascists; against anyone
who is different to them and represents the conservative majority
viewpoint held by those with high IQs. And by conservative majority we
are talking about conservative as it is defined by British
socio-ecconomics not American conservatisim which is right of the
British Tory party.

In general the research proves that extremists have low IQ, and that is

So it's no wonder that you have a problem interpreting reports and
twist them to try and support your own warped point of view.
You are interpreting the findings incorrectly. What the data actually
shows is the complete opposite.
It is people who support Political Correctness who have a lower IQ as
shown by them giving positive responses to questions concerning
prejudice and authoritarianism.
Both the Communists and the Nazis supported racist and authoritarian
ideologies and both of these movements were left wing. The Fascists also
supported supported racist and authoritarian ideologies and the were
right wing.
Are you trying to tell me that this research is saying that Communists
and Nazis have high IQs and are good, whereas Fascists have low IQs and
are bad? Bollocks.

What the research actually shows is that people who have authoritarian
and racist views have low IQ, since no one was asked the questions are
you a conservative or liberal, and in America a liberal would be
equivalent to a moderate conservative in the UK.
The research proves therefore that those who favour Political
Correctness have low IQs since people who support Political Correctness
are not only authoritarian--people who have no respect of freedom of
speech or expression, as shown by their censorship of anything that goes
against their ideology--but they are also extremely prejudiced and
racist, just like the Nazis, Communists, and Fascists; against anyone
who is different to them and represents the conservative majority
viewpoint held by those with high IQs. And by conservative majority we
are talking about conservative as it is defined by British
socio-ecconomics not American conservatisim which is right of the
British Tory party.
In general the research proves that extremists have low IQ, and that is
why they are likely to follow extremist figures from either side of the

Only if they are PCists. Religion falls into the category of obedience
of authority figures too, just like Political Correctness. So it's no
wonder the PC loonies want to put an end to religion. It's like
Scientologists wanting to put an end to psychiatry, so they can replace
it with the beliefs of Scientology. Political correctists want to
replace religion with political correctness because political
correctness is nothing more than yet another false religion.

Hmm. Aggy and Yads are not fans of political correctness.
Being politically correct basically means that you can show respect to others.
No it doesn't. Political correctness is about being intolerant and
disrespecting the majority, suppressing freedom of speech, and freedom
of expression; all in pursuit of a deranged dogma, not about favoring
what is best over what is isn't; but about favoring the stupid over the
intelligent, the sick over the healthy, the week over the strong, the
disabled over the able-bodied, the minority over the majority, the
extremists over the moderates; all by bullying people into submission,
not by explaining things rationally or logically, but by brainwashing
people to its will.

No Tim. In fact, despite all of Aggy's claims, the reverse has been proven.

People who are anti-PC are conservative racists - bigots like Yads and Aggy - and they have a lower IQ.

I've taken these stupid online IQ tests and got around 150 as well.
Everyone knows they're fixed to give you more incentive to pay money to
join the 'club'.
Good point!!

Hmm. Aggy and Yads are not fans of political correctness.
Being politically correct basically means that you can show respect to others.
No it doesn't. Political correctness is about being intolerant and
disrespecting the majority, suppressing freedom of speech, and freedom
of expression; all in pursuit of a deranged dogma, not about favoring
what is best over what is isn't; but about favoring the stupid over
the intelligent, the sick over the healthy, the week over the strong,
the disabled over the able-bodied, the minority over the majority, the
extremists over the moderates; all by bullying people into submission,
not by explaining things rationally or logically, but by brainwashing
people to its will.

Oh, and there is no link between IQ and political correctness.
The evidence shows that there is. Political correctness lowers your IQ.
You can even see that with Albert Einstein who said it as it is.

You and binky are the most vocal "anti-PC" members here.  Check
Being "anti-PC" should raise your IQ....  Check
But the stupidest posts here written by the two of you?
It seems to refute this campaign of yours, lock stock and barrel.
In the words of Mythbusters......this myth is busted!
You argument is based on a false premise, that out posts are the

Political Correctness has made people dumber!
https://news.sky.com/story/are-we-getting-dumber-study-shows-drop-in-iq-scores-11402322
Stephen Wilson, Mike McKeown, Solar Penguin and IDlehands do make good examples!
Yads - they're pretty much the only people in this group with
anything sensible to say. And I think you're younger than at least
half of us. Which means, according to the report you're so excited
about, you are also dumber.
I think Aggy is younger still. So it's hardly surprising that neither
of you are able to work out what the article is actually saying.
You are a demented old fool. The article is saying that men's IQ's
have been falling by 7 points every generation since political
correctness took over
No.  The article didn't mention political correctness at all.  Not once.
And even if it did say "IQs have been falling... since political
correctness took over", that's still not the same as saying "Political
Correctness has made people dumber!"  (e.g. They could both be unrelated
side effects of something else.)
It pertains to Political Correctness when it speculates that the fall in
IQs is down to the way Maths and English are now taught; taught to
satisfy the PC loonies to bring girls scores to the same levels as those
of boys; ie. by reducing standards (as seen with the GCSE) and using
teaching methods that are biased against boys and favour girls.

It’s probably true that attempts are being made to eliminate some of the
historical bias in education towards males, which of course an ultra
chauvinist would see as “favouring” girls. I have no idea how successful
such attempts could be.

Changes in math have been seen in a strong de-emphasis on basic arithmetic-
we have machines to do that for us. Contrary to Aggy’s lunatic ravings,
calculators and computers are qualitatively different in this respect from
slide rules and log tables - those don’t help you on basic “sums”, the
facility for mental arithmetic that does help you to more intuitively grasp
the relationship between numbers in a sequence and thus fill in a gap, or
extend a sequence.

The sort of person who sneers at the ideal of “political correctness” -
regardless of shortcomings or stupidity in pursuing that goal - is by
definition in favour of “belligerent wrongness”.

Aggy is belligerently wrong and a champion of it - yep, sounds about right.

Of course it's favoring girls because just like with Doctor Who it's
taking something away from boys and leaving them with nothing. There
were always more males in the top 5% in Maths and English compared to
girls and there still are, because of biological reasons in who male and
female brains are wired. What the PC lunatics did was to deprive male
students of the high grade of education they had the right to and
instead concentrate on making everything easier for girls on order to
close the gap, none of which made any difference except on lowering the
IQ of boys, and making the boys who scored the lowest score even lower.

Oh, what a load of complete and utter crap. You can't use a calculator
to do algebra for you; you can't use a calculator to solve simultaneous
equations; you can't use a calculator to solve quadratic and cubic
equations; you can't use it to do calculus (using non numeric methods);
you can't use it to do geometry for you... All a calculator is is an
adding machine no different to a slide rule of log tables. The mental
arithmetic needed in any of the above is very limited, what you need are
problem solving skills and logic, and if you can't even add 2 and 2
together then there's not much a calculator can do for you.

Try solving this problem with a calculator and see how much use it is?

"If Mark gives Tony £3 they will both have the same amount of money. If
Tony gives Mark £3 Mark will have four times as much as Tony. Who has what?"

and this one...

"What number is missing from this sequence?

We're showing signs of being a Spanish web design company? If you say so,

OK Yads, but you've still not explained why you think we are showing signs
of being a Spanish web design company. For that matter, why is it only
Demantia that we're showing signs of becoming, and what's the difference
between early Demantia and Demantia today?

Political Correctness has made people dumber!
https://news.sky.com/story/are-we-getting-dumber-study-shows-drop-in-iq-scores-11402322
Stephen Wilson, Mike McKeown, Solar Penguin and IDlehands do make good examples!
Yads - they're pretty much the only people in this group with
anything sensible to say. And I think you're younger than at
least half of us. Which means, according to the report you're
so excited about, you are also dumber.
I think Aggy is younger still. So it's hardly surprising that
neither of you are able to work out what the article is
actually saying.
You are a demented old fool. The article is saying that men's
IQ's have been falling by 7 points every generation since
political correctness took over
No.  The article didn't mention political correctness at all.  Not once.
And even if it did say "IQs have been falling... since political
correctness took over", that's still not the same as saying
"Political Correctness has made people dumber!"  (e.g. They could
both be unrelated side effects of something else.)
It pertains to Political Correctness when it speculates that the fall
in IQs is down to the way Maths and English are now taught; taught to
satisfy the PC loonies to bring girls scores to the same levels as
those of boys; ie. by reducing standards (as seen with the GCSE) and
using teaching methods that are biased against boys and favour
girls.
The article doesn't say any of that.  It's just your own personal
interpretation, and it says more about you than about IQ or education or
anything else.
What it says is that I am intelligent enough to recognize when the
system changed. PC lunacy and its deranged dogma of favouring of the
less able over those who are more able is what has brought down IQs.

It says you can't tell the difference between personal opinion and proven
fact. That doesn't mean you're intelligent. Just the opposite.

Even if this opinion will eventually turn out to be true, it's still not
what the studies in the article have proven.

Bollocks it is.

For a start, we know youth culture today is more oriented around computer
games and mobile phones than it is in terms of reading and holding
conversations. That's an impact of technology, Aggy, not political
correctness.

And I guarantee that my 16 year old nephew would out-perform you in any IQ
test.

Besides... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-31556802

"If Americans today took the tests from a century ago, Flynn says, they
would have an extraordinarily high average IQ of 130. And if the Americans
of 100 years ago took today's tests, they would have an average IQ of 70 -
the recognised cut-off for people with intellectual disabilities. To put it
another way, IQ has been rising at roughly three points per decade."

But do we actually notice in our midst a higher proportion of geniuses than
there were in earlier generations?

"That's the baffling aspect," Morris admits. "How could it go up so much but
there aren't all these very very smart people floating around? And that is a
bit of a puzzle. But then, people have started to say, 'Maybe there are more
bright people floating around and they're kind of hidden away because of the
way science has become very specialist. They're working in their own
particular field and they're doing amazing things - they're acting as
geniuses - but they're not necessarily identified as such.'"

You are a demented old fool. The article is saying that men's IQ's have
been falling by 7 points every generation since political correctness
took over in the classroom and subjects like maths and English were
dumbed down so that girls could get better grades at the expense of boys
grades. You just have to look at the GCSEs getting easier, and easier,
and easier, and girls copying each other's coursework, and then
complaining when coursework was removed, and at the difficulty of easy
maths questions which an 11 year old from this country could easily do
40 years ago, and an 8 year from any Asian country where PC stupidity
hasn't got a foothold can do today without batting an eyelid.
Then there's the alleged influence of television, which as we've seen
from Doctor Who has deteriorated after it was taken over by PC bigots
with low IQs compared to those in the 70s, and used to brainwash viewers
instead of consisting of plots which stand up to scrutiny and educating
them about actual science.
Political correctness has destroyed television with writers like Moffat
and Chibnall, it's destroyed the movies with writers like J J Abrams,
its destroyed music with the chart full of garbage, it's destroyed
comedy, and it's destroyed literature.
It's truly amazing how you can take a simple article and then spin it to
fit your misogynistic bullshit and then stretch it even further to
fulfill your prophecy of the death of the Doctor.

It's all total bullshit of course and reeks of your desperation to prove
your "point" at all costs.

I think Aggy is younger still. So it's hardly surprising that neither of you

I was born fourteen years before the study claims as the birthdate of the
people the study claims first started to show the decline.

My IQ, like that of most people with an IQ over 130, is highly variable on
standard tests which are geared for accuracy around a mean of 100. It
generally comes out anywhere between 130 and 150 - whatever the maximum
score on the test is, basically. Unless I’m having a bad day, of course.

I did once do the “hardest IQ test in the world” - it was published in an
early Omni around 1980. It was geared for accuracy around a mean of 160,
being created by an elitist society called, at the time, the Four Sigma
Society. I scored 168, but that total was negatively impacted by the use of
American English in the linguistic portion of the test so some answers that
might seem plain to an American were ambiguous to a person for whom British
English is more common, due to links between words that depended on obscure
usages. However, I never followed up on the invitation to join - I was too
smart to pay money to join a group that self satisfied with a parlour trick
of the mind. And the membership fee was eye watering for a student anyway.

I run my own company - its services involve selling my intellectual
services to IT projects. Its turnover is around GBP 100,000 - plus VAT. I
only earn that little because I only want to work 9 to 5 and don’t want the
stress of managing programmes and portfolios. I work to live, not live to
work - which is why I take several holidays every year with my wife, go to
a dozen rock & pop concerts, etc.

I don’t feel all that dumb., frankly.

Yads - they're pretty much the only people in this group with anything
sensible to say. And I think you're younger than at least half of us. Which
means, according to the report you're so excited about, you are also dumber.

I was born fourteen years before the study claims as the birthdate of the

Yads is approximately a week and a half _older_ than me.

(Now cue long and pointless argument about what day the week and a half
began on!)

Try solving this problem with a calculator and see how much use it is?
"If Mark gives Tony £3 they will both have the same amount of money. If
Tony gives Mark £3 Mark will have four times as much as Tony. Who has what?"
Mark1 = 8. Tony1 = 2.
Mark2 = 5. Tony2 = 5.
Mark3 = 8. Tony3 = 2.
No.
I read problem as: I: Mark gives Tony 3 pounds, bringing them even. II: Tony gives 3 pounds to Mark, reversing the action of step I. As a result, Mark now has 4 times as much money as Tony!

Which just goes to show that you don't interpret all that you read
correctly.

Obviously Tony has £7 and Mark had £13

If Mark gave Tony £3, Tony would have £10 and Mark would have £10. So they
would both have the same amount.

But if Tony gave Mark £3 then Tony would have £4 and Mark would have £16. So
Mark would have 4 times as much as Tony.

Really not that difficult.

No. Each sentence begins with "If", therefore no money actually changes
hands. You are working with the money they start of with and if operates
on that.
