I was wondering myself how many people they interviewed to get that many truly stupid people. Honestly I am an old man but there is a lot about intelligence I don't understand. I for one have little formal education. I was from a poor country farmers and spent most of my time as a kid helping out on the farm. I have often met people who went to college and seemed dumb as a rock. On several occasions I have had these college kids work for me and I swear, although book smart they couldn't poor water out of a boot with directions written on the bottom. I truly believe it takes more than the education but also the ability to problem solve. I have never traveled so I don't know if this is the dumbest country in the world but I do realize our school system is lacking something.

Let's not pick on Americans, as John says. The problem I have is that intellectual people and particularly those like us who have no problem with reality and in a small minority - and it's shrinking!

I'm going to be all pedantic now - IQ is a (fairly poor) measure of intelligence; intellect is an unquantifiable amount of what you know. You can be intelligent and intellectual or any mix of that. Intellectual people are likely to be intelligent too, but that doesn't necessarily follow. Drive has a lot to do with it.

 

Robert is sadly quite correct. Americans (per capita) are the most ignorant people in the developed world when in comes to biology and evolution in particular. Many are extraordinary introspective and fail to understand there is a whole world out there that was doing just fine for millenia before westerners invaded only a few centuries back!

Heck, it once took me almost 15 seconds to figure out which US state ended in 'k' - and I'm *from* New York :)

 

Alaskak?  Montanak?  Arkansask?

This may be a photoshop gag, or it may be a fake, but this is supposed to be in the St. Peter's Basillica in Rome...

@ Riomarcos did you notice that the cartoonist in the social Darwinism cartoon mistakenly called "us" Darwinists rather than Darwinians (or simply educated people). What really worries me is that my spellchecker (which is American based) recongnises the incorrect term as being OK and flags Darwinian as an error. Dear o dear.
