Yeah his support for Intelligent Design kinda turns me off from him though...

Pfft. Darwin was 135 wtf? IQ can't very well be judged.

IQ can't accurately be measured after 150

Actually, Darwin was an idiot. Plain and simple. Too many drugs for 1 person.

If he's so smart why wouldn't he think "Maybe if I spent some time in school and prove how smart I am and get a scholarship so I won't have to be a bouncer and a construction worker.
11 years ago
Who wouldn't want to be a bouncer? The construction work is just to keep him in shape for it!

You know that the average IQ level in prisons is HIGHER than the average in society as a whole? Being more intelligent actually makes it MORE likely that you'll be a fuck-up. Our systems (education and otherwise) as designed by and for the mediocre.

Some of the smartest people that I have known worked at bars.

IQ is kinda out dated. People are smart in other ways than are tested in that test.

And yet he wants to prove intelligent design as a credible theory. How many points off should that be?

Yeah I know, Is he a scientologist too?

All scientologist's should die!

I knew a guy who had an IQ of 187. He was also a jerk and had very little common sense. He died of AIDS...

Okay... so dude is trying to set up some kind of personality cult for himself, that's cool: I'm sure it'll beat working construction.

...

However... Trying to logically prove the existence of God through binary logic. WTF? What's wrong with faith? I could really give a shit if you want to believe that some big-ass goofy fucker crapped out the universe just for kicks. Good for you. I have faith in shit that can't be proven too. But trying to prove this shit defeats the whole purpose.
11 years ago
For example: no one can prove to me that everything I experience isn't a dream that I'm experiencing in a coma somewhere. There is nothing that can eliminate the internal logic of that idea if that's what I choose to believe. However, I KNOW that such isn't the case. Do we have to prove everything, or can we just get on with the sucking and fucking that is a life well lived?

I believe it, because Balls Malone said it.

This guy sounds like a complete twat, "among his claims for which are that [his theories] constitute absolute truth, provides the logical framework of a theory of everything, and proves the existence of God."

i was thinking about that this morning....about how most religions cant be proved to be legit...i dont care what sloppy cock cavemen drew on a wall...he was probably whiping his ass with sticks and peyote..
unless jesus or god or buddha come down and they can prove who they are without getting shot by some maniac minority.(thatd be ironic...if jesus came back in the 40's or something and was murdered..and god basically said fuck it...then he came down to earth..fucked a monkey...then fucked black chick...and god created aids)

in my opinion there could never be world peace..until there is either no a)religion or b)one race....not nessecarily genecide...but dammit its for world peace(have u drowned ur chink today)
its be easier for america to take over the world then to have world peace...and if u think about it...isnt that what world peace really is...people getting fatter and happier..everyone driving on the right side of the road...speaking english...man...i can taste the freedom already...it tastes like burnt emotions

A global society/consciousness that is ethical, tolerant, patient and caring for others (and w/o faith... for faith is fucking bullshit and in such a world the term faith would be irrelevant and patience would replace it) is perhaps closer than many may think.
11 years ago
What's your problem with faith? I think you must be talking about the most dogmatized, cookie-cutter, religious hokum variety. But you clearly have faith in man's ability to rise to a higher standard.

...

Personally I think this global love-fest you speak of was a long shot at best, and is only getting further out of reach. You could have a utopia for billions, and it would only take one Hitler to twist it all around.
11 years ago
Global 'love-fest'??? Read between the lines you twit... perhaps this is where IQ can be helpful!
11 years ago
All right then… Read between the lines to find what? An insipid regurgitation of a tired out “we are the world” humanism? Or maybe I’m being too generous here.
...
So what about “faith” there, brainiac. (No, you didn’t distract me.)

Faith is fine. Religion is bullshit.

Just watched the entire series of this dudes interview and he is one serious fuck-tard... my guess is that his messed up childhood has scratched him in such a manner that his views are tarnished and he is on some sort of power trip. The guy has some real issues that he has yet to face.

He actually endorses the Bible as "allegorical truth" (regarding Creationism). He can spew "logic" all he wants, but that won't make a bunch of angry sand-people trying to forge a cultural identity through religion any more truthful. He's got no balls trying to advocate Intelligent Design but at the same time failing to deal with the idea of the Soul.
11 years ago
This bitch wants to rule and eradicate all peops that have any hint of 'genetic' deformity. The chump is obviously of the Noe-Nazi breed and has zero discernment of any spiritual realm of existence.

What an insignificant bitch that has been given an imagination to keep himself preoccupied, for his soul is surely fertilizer for those that are in the process of growing.
11 years ago
That was one disturbing aspect of the way he thinks. But that's what happens when you rule the world with only logic, like he wants to do.
11 years ago
If he was the smartest man he'd be a billionaire, or at least a multi-millionarie, at his age. I'm assuming he's neither.

My IQ is in the 140's area. I've been tested several times by different places and they all say the same thing. It pains me to see such an intelligent human being with absolutely nothing to contribute to society. This guy needs to forgive that step father of his, and find some peace with God so he can change the world in a good way.
11 years ago
Cheers, big ears! My situation is relatively similar... for have yet to test below 135. Watching this documentary of this highly intelligent moron leads me to believe my intuition... intelligence is 'fool's gold' and is nothing on it own. Kind of like Ayahuasca without DMT...
11 years ago
You have an IQ above 140 and still believe in god. Maybe you should recheck it.
11 years ago
Darwin in the toilet with an IQ of 135?? I'm sure Darwin was higher but an IQ level if 135 is hardly in the toilet. I've been measured at 135 and it's known as a PhD level IQ. Only roughly 1.5% of the population of the world have an IQ of 135 or above. Most people are at 100, 120 is considered superior intelligence. Anything over 145 is seen as 'gifted'. To join Mensa (the intellectual society) all you have to do is be in the top 2% in the world with an IQ of 130 or above I think, the test must be taken in a collage or university as proof of no cheating with a trusted, detailed and though test, not the rubbish on the internet.

But typical IQ tests cannot measure WISDOM, or ARTISTIC intelligence, or emotional intelligence or many other quality's that make a person AWARE and smart. It takes a certain level of intelligence to have wisdom or be an enlightened being, but no wisdom whatsoever to be intelligent. Personally I think IQ levels measured are an unfair representation of 'many' peoples real intelligence, but most people are fucking idiots. They sleepwalk through their lives and are fucked over and manipulated like puppets on a string by the 'system', any smart person knows this. There are the few wolves, the few enlightened ones, the few genius minds, and the 90 to 95% DULLER MASSES.

This guy in the video seems arrogant, passionless and lazy and doesn't deserve his 'high' IQ.

Good post.

"IQ" doesn't mean shit. The first one I took I scored a 142 and I am no fucking genuis. The next three times I had a 147, 128 and 139. I got the 147 with a hangover and so my theory is proven, drinking kills stupid brain cells. Anyone who has to brag about their IQ is a moron. The test means less than a pap smear for a man.
11 years ago
I can score really high on any IQ test 'cause I did them for fun since I was a kid. I scored pretty high back then, but I didn't realize they'd have stupid tricks like counting syllables or shit. Now I'm a fucking genius on every test. It's not because I'm smarter (if anything, years of drinking has turned me into a drooling idiot), it's because I know what the test is all about. Put in stupid shit that people won't see unless they're expecting stupid shit. Wow, realize that and you're suddenly a super genius. It doesn't mean shit.
11 years ago
If you score 124 on an IQ test, that puts you in the top 5% in the world. Which means that only 300,000,000 people are as smart or smarter than you.
11 years ago
Giving a number for your IQ is meaningless since your score is relative to other people who took the same test. If your in mensa its not because you scored 471, it is because you where in the 98th % or above. A 190 on one test could be equal to a 75 on another test.
11 years ago
Agreed. But who really gives a shit anyway. Oooooo, wow! You have a high number!
I judge people by the shit they do and the shit they say. I've have functionaly-illiterate mechanics blow my mind with what they say, and there were more vacant dumbasses at university than I care to think about.

I just got through watching the series on youtube. Interesting stuff. Also, his wiki entry is a good read as well. I find it funny though how all you people on here think his credibility goes into the toilet when he postulates a reason for "intelligent design."
This guy? He's pretty fucking smart. I for one am convinced. I also find it funny that you equate smart=rich. Wow. Really? So, with that logic, I guess Paris Hilton is the creme de la crop eh? She's got 16 papers on relativity, right? Look, this guy chose his life. He is not bothered or motivated by money. That fact alone means this guy gets it to some extent. He is comfortable in the environment he has chosen which is a bouncer.
<br>
There were some things kind of disturbing in his last video. Like, making everyone qualify for having children. I will say his logical take on life makes sense to a degree if we are ever going to get off this rock, but the application will never be accepted. I personally would love to sit down and have a chat with this guy. And like he said. IQ isn't "pc" anymore. Reading all these posts I can see he was right to say that. I will admit he is kind of arrogant though, but that is understandable. Like Robin Williams said in "Good Will Hunting" ... "And look at you... I don't see an intelligent, confident man... I see a cocky, scared shitless kid. But you're a genius Will. No one denies that. No one could possibly understand the depths of you. But you presume to know everything about me because you saw a painting of mine, and you ripped my fucking life apart. You're an orphan right? You think I know the first thing about how hard your life has been, how you feel, who you are, because I read Oliver Twist? Does that encapsulate you?" So yeah. His only set back is experience of life. But I think he has the "smart" thing pretty well covered.

He's not even the smartest man in America. He's not impressive whatsoever; doesnt say anything beyond the intellect of a college sophmore.

What did he do to piss you off so much? Throw you out of a bar or something?

plus, what evidence do you have to counter all his theories? Any? Or are you just full of hot air? OR better, shit?

Btw, for you retards quoting your IQ scores - online IQ tests dont mean shit.


Real IQ tests are administered by a psychologist and take many many hours.

I had sex with a psychologist once, and I think that makes me smarter than that fat fuck in the video.

If you are reffering to this guy, he picked up his iq test off the street back in the 80's. And as we all know, that's much better than online.
