Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people

Evidence ay? That is what has been lacking in your silly debates about god. If I suggested you have no evidence, you would post it immediately but ironically, you worship god without a Thread of evidence and never ask to see it!!!

Now do you think Australians are getting dumber? It is the Americans who have to measure their brains with IQs etc because it is so small.

Aren't you pleased you bought that ridiculous subject up? I am.

Re: down, down, down

They love to think they have an intelligence ranking because they feel they are superior. God believing does that too them. In fact, there is not person on this forum who can claim to be above average, warranting the name of "brilliant".
