Scientists say they can prove it..but they are blokes
MEN are more intelligent than women, new research claims. Two leading scientists - both men - say male IQs are 3.63 points higher than females.
Think loud, long RASPBERRY!
Prof Rushton's team analysed 100,000 aptitude tests taken by 17 and 18-year-olds of both sexes.
That explains it...17 and 18 year old girls are too busy thinking about 17 and 18 year old boys.
And he said men were more intelligent "throughout the entire distribution of scores, in every level of family income, for every level of fathers and mothers' education, and for each and every one of seven ethnic groups".
He also claimed that girls only did better than boys at school because they "mature faster".
This never changes, so what's their point?
"Measuring intelligence is not the same as measuring length or temperature." Mr Smithers, head of education at the University of Buckingham, said tests could be constructed to have certain outcomes and men and women have different strengths.
