Andy Schlafly: Everyone is Stupid Today, But Not Quite as Dumb as They Should be, This Shows the Earth is Only 6004 Years Old.
Apparently Andy’s theory is that everyone in the past should have had super-duper genius powers if the Earth was old. He claims this because he believes there is a intelligence curve that has steadily and precipitously gone downhill since man was created by God.
Therefore in his thinking this proves the Young Earth Creationist viewpoint because if the earth was older than he claims everyone alive today would be helplessly drooling morons.
Sure it does. The observed slope of the intelligence curve over time is sharply negative. Extrapolate backwards and before long the IQs are astoundingly high. But there’s no evidence of astoundingly high IQs for man, so the conclusion is clear: time does not extend much backwards.—[[User:Aschlafly|Andy Schlafly]] 00:52, 15 June 2011 (EDT)
I do have to give Andy credit for giving Poe’s and trolls everywhere cover for their juvenile imaginings.
