Deepak Chopra was totally outclassed by Richard Dawkins in a debate held in Mexico on 11/09/2013 as part of CDI. I was laughing throughout the debate to see Chopra's discomfiture and at the end of the exchange the look of defeat on Deepak Chopra's face was evident. Serves him right. LOL.

Richard Dawkins easily cornered another nutcase - the noted Indian philosopher, Satish Kumar. Kudos to Dr Dawkins.

They never do ... they just go on, and on, and on. At the end of your shift they're telling a story about their cat's dandruff and when you come back for the next shift they're still telling the same story.

It's like the part of the brain the determines what thoughts to articulate has failed in the open position. The exact opposite of autism.

I usually feel refreshed when I watch vids of wildlife specifically those shot in the great continent of Africa. I don't know why I find the rhythms of African animals nearer to nature than those beasts found elsewhere. Much damage has been done to the wilds of Africa that these days most of the wild tracts of Africa have been converted into money-minting safaris which every year draw tens of millions of tourists from all over the world. Sad, the wilds have been commercialized to such an extent that the natural breeding cycles of the animals and much of the natural habitats have been disturbed.

Laughably, Israel has an average national IQ near 93 which is quite low LOL.
If you laugh at Israel 'coz has an average national IQ around 93, why then eulogize Iran that has an average national IQ of 84?

IRAN

Literacy rate in poverty-stricken Iran is around 85%, literacy rate in Israel approximately 98%.

Iran is poor and has been cruelly discriminated against by the West and in Iran the grip of religion and of brutal dictatorship have progressively squashed free thought and creativity.

The majority of the Iranian intellectual elite has fled Iran for other nations particularly in Europe and North America where they're flourishing and doing exceedingly well.

Most Iranians in Iran live in fear and have secretly turned atheists and are desperate to leave Iran for greener pastures. However, of what little of the good is still left in Iran is shown at the international Math/Science Olympiads where Iran always ranks very high which indicates the excellence of its students despite all the hardships at home. Many of these gold medalists from Iran make it to MIT and Stanford and do so well that certain Stanford University profs have commented that without a doubt one of the finest, if not the finest, university in the world preparing undergraduate Electrical engineers is Sharif University of Technology in Tehran.

Yes, I've met many Iranian students at IIT and found them brilliant and very well prepared whereas in my talks with educated Israelis most come across as crafty, ill-informed, racist, plagiarist, always willing to strike a deal and poor in the fundamentals of Math and science despite being helped by the West and in spite of there being no poverty or dictatorship in Israel and not surprisingly Israel fares poorly at international Math and science Olympiads and not a single Israeli university ranks in the world's top 200.

SOUTH KOREA & IRAN - BEST INTELLECTUAL POTENTIAL

South Korea was such a poor and backward nation for centuries and the Japanese who conquered it ruined it further but through grit, cleverness and hard work, South Korea is rising rapidly and ranks among the top nations these days.

South Koreans have the world's average national highest IQ of 107.

South Korea is a wealthy liberal democracy where citizens are not mentally or physically shackled by authoritarian rulers and it has none of the religious fanaticism seen in dictator-controlled Iran.

South Korea ranks among the top 3 at all international math and science competitions and South Korean students are among the very best in the US grad schools.

Give Iran the same progressive conditions and it is sure to rise to very great heights and this is what the West/Israel do not wish since they know that the Iranians are really smart.

In terms of sheer intellectual potential, I rank South Korea and Iran at the top of the ladder.

ASIA TO LEAD IN FUTURE

I have met several South Korean and Iranian students in India and abroad and am always amazed at their ideas, sincerity and superior Math and Science skills that put most educated people anywhere in the world to shame.

I think the time for Asia to shine has come and perhaps if a world war is not triggered off by the cunning nations in the ME and West then the highest growth rates and many of the brightest innovations and the best ideas should emerge from Asia especially from Japan, South Korea, China, Iran and Singapore.

These nations have the potential to be world leaders.

Japan has proven its superior credentials and is just behind the US in science, tech and overall development and Singapore, China and South Korea have in varying degrees given evidence of their superior intellectual capacity.

Given a level plying field and in the absence of religious fundamentalism and in an era free of dictatorship and in atmosphere that's free of the fear of war, Asia will rise to the top.

In the past, too, the leading nations of the world were all Asian.

Asians, including many Indians, are already in a dominant position in many cutting edge intellectual areas in the West and are the most dynamic force at the university level too.

The cycle is now fast turning and Asia is set to reclaim her per-eminent position in the world.

India can only collapse in future given its huge incompetent population who revel in religious superstition, caste, poverty, miseducation, communal conflicts, inefficiency and corruption. Many highly educated Indians do very well in the liberal environs in the West but they usually never shine in India.

INDIA AT CERN

Things are getting worse in India.

India was invited by CERN to join its cutting edge research experiments in particle physics in the formal capacity of associate nation status.

The TIFR and BARC back in India made crucial contributions to CERN experiments in discovering the Higgs Boson in the recent past and the majority of applicants for internship at CERN are from India.

The Indian Government has been sitting on the request from CERN since the past year which has made the current director of CERN express dismay at India's lack on interest in genuine research opportunities.

Shame.

India has great potential in physics and India has at times ranked in the top 5 at the International Physics Olympiad.

Jews are not very intelectual even if they claim so in the media.

Israel is not even in the top 25 of the most intelectual countries.

Their world power cannot be explained because of skills or intelligence as they like to claim ´.

Old God does everything for Sin City (Las Vegas). Gives them beautiful weather while freezing the rest of the country to death!. Gives Sin City vast wealth, attends to their every need. God ought to be ashamed of Hiself for performing oral sex on Sin City at the same time lets those poor Africans starve to death!!!, Jesus needs to be ashamed of Hiself for doing His own mother in, when Jesus ascended up to Heaven He left His mother the desert!, yet He performs oral sex on Sin City!!!. God and Jesus does everything for Sin City!!!. Sin City gets to enjoy Steaks every day and those poor Africans get leaf's every day!!!. Hope you're proud of yourself JESUS doing your own mother in!!!. Why don't you marry Sin City God?, you should since you love it so much!!!.
The notion of a god who worships her people, instead of vice versa, is intriguing.

Who would of thought such intellectualism would come out of a place like Kentucky?
