Liberalism, atheism, male sexual exclusivity linked to IQ

RE: Liberalism, atheism, male sexual exclusivity linked to IQ
Well, the report did state that the correlation did not apply across the board.

I guess one of the hard things about testing intelligent men is that they are unpredictable. Tongue Einstein was obviously not monogamous and you could probably wiggle him into the mold of a liberal and an atheist. I would cite the fact that I am a conservative and something of a libertarian, but I only possess a slightly higher than average IQ and I don't possess male parts, so it's irrelevant. lol

I wonder if there are enough evolutionary psychologists that are conservative/libertarian to conduct a study on that. It would give them something to do. Smile

Yeah, good rebut!
"Seriously? Show me the error bars on those measurements. Show me the reliability of IQ as a measure of actual, you know, intelligence. Show me that a 6 point IQ difference matters at all in your interactions with other people, even if it were real. And then to claim that these differences are not only heritable, but evolutionarily significant…jebus, people, you can just glance at it and see that it is complete crap."

IQ is a simple and kind of esoteric test of pattern recognition and memory. I had one, the man asked me what this was a picture of. I said 'A bass clef'. If someone has not yet learned what a bass clef is, are they less mentally able than I? And the killer, yes of course, show me the margin of error in this survey. We need to spend less time being self righteous, telling ourselves how much better we are than others. Atheists are not smarter because they are atheists, and believers are not smarter because they are believers...

"Male sexual exclusivity" = Androphiliac male? Or does it mean "non-bisexual"?

I think it only means monogamous male.

Wait... those actually exist 0.o <--- Disbeliever that anyone is monogamous, except in practice. Tongue

Wouldn't a healthy respect for STIs do that better than more intelligence? Or is it that stupid people are more likely to think that it won't happen to them? And why would it not apply to intelligent women the same? :S

I'm all confused now :S And tired... sleep is on the phone and he won't shut up Smile

Apparently you haven't met my parents. 35+ years and they are still om nom nom'ing each other. Apparently love does not tamp out with age. At least not yet.

That would be in practice Smile This does not mean they are not attracted to those who are not their 'significant other'.

On adultery:

Jesus said "if you thought it, you did it, jackass"

I'm paraphrasing of course.

Guys, please learn to read qualifiers:

I thought we already covered the topic of monogamy/autogamy/polygamy and the three ways 'love' applies in each scenario (Logical relationship, physical relationship, emotional relationship). I'll link it if you want me to... but you'll have to wait till later, when i don't feel this lazy Smile
