The good news: “Scientists have concluded that men who sleep around are likely to have lower IQs.” Hah! Another scientific study that proves something we think we already knew!
“According to his theory, intelligent people are more likely to adopt what in evolutionary terms are new practices – to become ‘more evolved’.
Therefore, in the case of fidelity, men who cannot adapt and end up succumbing to temptation and cheating are likely to be more stupid.”
Oh, but wait. Because of course there’s the bad news. In some sort of unexplained correlation the same study also claims “that intelligent people are less likely to believe in God or hold conservative views.” Hey, science says so. And science is very intelligent, don’t forget.
“Dr Kanazawa’s theory holds that self-interested, conservative attitudes are primitive in evolutionary terms, while selfless, liberal views are more advanced and linked with intelligence.
Similarly, those who identified themselves as ‘not at all religious’ had an average IQ of 103, while those who saw themselves as ‘very religious’ had an average IQ of 97.
According to Dr Kanazawa, that is down to people who are smarter being more open to new ideas.”
Dr Kanazawa, just a scientist open to a new idea.
