Nope. http://www.emilkirkegaard.dk/en/wp-...al-research.pdf See table 1, page 412. Parental SES has a quite respectable correlation to outcomes of education, occupation, and income, but IQ has it beat.

High IQ past the first standard deviation correlates strongly with liberalism or leftist beliefs though. And the average IQ of both self identified liberals and conservatives is about the same.

I mean that's literally what the research says, since I've read it, like an IQ obsessed rear end in a top hat.

He wasn't saying what IQ ACTUALLY means, though. He was saying what the kinds of people who make those "The world is getting dumber because there's more brown people!" charts THINK it means.

Aren't those two things incompatible? Unless low IQ also correlates with liberalism, to balance it out.

It, does, in fact, because poor people being hosed by the system tend to have liberal leanings and low iqs

Maybe they actually have zero subscribers and they wanted to make a technically-true graphic that looks amateurish instead of fraudulent.

It looks like it started as an attempt at a graphic representation of end times theology. God (upper thick line) exists forever, creates world and people (two lower lines, black for bad, white for good), god comes down to Earth, gets crucified (cross) allows good people into heaven. Tough luck, black arrow. Then comes down to fight battle of Armageddon (spears), later comes back again, judges people in hell, stays on Earth forever.

Then someone added the audio labels. Which make it surreal.

Tah-dah! Mystery solved.

I was thinking that it showed man can only reach heaven through Jesus and no matter how terrible you are, you can always turn to Jesus, until Judgement Day and the tribulation when no matter how good you try to be, if you still don't turn to Jesus, you are an unforgiven sinner and you are still not going to heaven.

For the rest of us? Up. I hope the Muslims get taken in the rapture as well as whoever else goes. Nothing for or against them, it's just I used to live near a mosque and hearing the call to prayer early on a day off was kinda jarring.
