Do you not think it's true then? rebelaessedai Send a noteboard - 04/02/2012 07:32:13 AM
I mean, conservatism? Really? What's this gonna do besides cause a shit-storm?


I mean, going by my experience, most of the dumb people in my life tend to be social conservatives. And most of the smart ones are not. Of course, there are exceptions to that. I wouldn't know of the science behind this study, as I am not interested enough to really dig deep to find out. But it does match my experience, and the experience of many others I know.

What has your experience been?

I agree. - 03/02/2012 10:48:25 PM 130 Views
Yeah, I am unsure whether to be impressed or disappointed. - 05/02/2012 02:38:05 AM 130 Views
That is a logical and reasonable assessment. - 04/02/2012 08:59:59 PM 128 Views
You think very well. - 05/02/2012 04:12:11 AM 113 Views

By referencing it… - 03/02/2012 10:50:59 PM 140 Views
That's an odd idea. - 03/02/2012 11:10:31 PM 146 Views
It was a mostly facetious comment…. - 03/02/2012 11:49:28 PM 121 Views
Clearly you endorse it. - 05/02/2012 02:23:41 AM 83 Views
Only endorsing its validity, not its soundness. *NM* - 04/02/2012 02:24:24 AM 59 Views

I expected no less. - 05/02/2012 12:25:14 AM 135 Views
Still fun though - 05/02/2012 01:30:26 AM 125 Views
Well, that is the main thing. - 05/02/2012 02:25:36 AM 119 Views
Well, racists are dumb. What's to discuss? - 04/02/2012 01:23:27 AM 128 Views
I think that generally agreed, though we need a study PROVING what we already know. - 05/02/2012 12:41:26 AM 155 Views
Proving is something you do in maths, not science. - 05/02/2012 09:05:30 AM 88 Views
So the Moon might still be made of green cheese? - 05/02/2012 10:20:57 AM 97 Views
Yes. It is not very likely, though, since no measurement we have done so far indicates that it is so - 05/02/2012 02:28:18 PM 98 Views
Oh, let us not go THERE. - 05/02/2012 02:54:30 PM 143 Views
Bad comparison - 05/02/2012 03:36:12 PM 115 Views
Well, that last part will make sure this gets ugly.... - 04/02/2012 02:05:11 AM 119 Views

Same here *NM* - 04/02/2012 12:13:44 PM 52 Views
Not in my experience. - 04/02/2012 04:17:01 PM 133 Views
Granted, you do move in different circles than I (or Jens, for that matter.) - 04/02/2012 10:24:52 PM 140 Views
Corfirmational bias much? - 04/02/2012 04:25:24 PM 115 Views
I did mention that I didn't care enough to look into it. - 04/02/2012 10:22:09 PM 111 Views
As a few others have noted, it is important to preserve the causality chain. - 05/02/2012 02:35:02 AM 109 Views
I dont see that it matters. - 13/02/2012 01:40:45 AM 88 Views
