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 ´.

God worships Sin City wrote:
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?

The term worm refers to an obsolete taxon (vermes) used by Carolus Linnaeus and Jean-Baptiste Lamarck for all non-arthropod invertebrate animals, and stems from the Old English word wyrm.

Currently it is used to describe many different distantly related animals that typically have a long cylindrical tube-like body and no legs.

Most animals called "worms" are invertebrates, but the term is also used for the amphibian caecilians and the slow worm Anguis, a legless burrowing lizard. Invertebrate animals commonly called "worms" include annelids (earthworms), nematodes (roundworms), platyhelminthes (flatworms), marine polychaete worms (bristle worms), marine nemertean worms ("bootlace worms"), marine Chaetognatha (arrow worms), priapulid worms, and insect larvae such as caterpillars, grubs, and maggots.

Historical English-speaking cultures have used the (now deprecated) terms worm, Wurm, or wyrm to describe carnivorous reptiles ("serpents"), and the related mythical beasts dragons.

The term worm can also be used as an insult or pejorative term used towards people to describe a cowardly or weak individual or individual seen as pitiable.

But that does not gives you any permanent hold, every now and then, people break free and take revenge for what was done.

That sumps up more than 3500 years history of Jews as a race.

THE IDEA OF A NOBLEST SOUL IS HUMBUG

Muhammad was the Noblest Soul, say the Muslims. The Jews would say Moses was the Noblest Soul. The Christians would say Jesus was the Noblest Soul. The Buddhists would say Buddha was the Noblest Soul. The Hindus would name either Rama, Vivekananda, Aurobindo, Krishna or Kabir as the Noblest Soul. The humanists would say Mahatma Gandhi was the Noblest Soul. The rationalists would say Max Planck was the Noblest Soul.

Each of the above-named personality had his fair share of defects and good points with some of the names listed above being more inclined towards perversity than towards benevolence and wisdom.

Depending on one's conditioning any one of the above names or some other name could rank as the Noblest Soul in one's subjective opinion which counts for little.

However, it may be definitively said that among the names given above in terms of real positive contributions to world knowledge Max Planck provided a grateful humanity with notable insights into some of the most fundamental laws of the universe, while the Buddha's illumined moral code based on universal non-discrimination, universal non-violence, universal peace and universal compassion are admirable.

On the other hand, the prophets of religions have set a very dangerous example by preaching irrational nonsense and of providing a vicious example of murder, uncalled for interference in human affairs, intolerance and discrimination.

Religion is fast being extinguished everywhere in the world as more people are becoming aware of its brainwashing techniques, pseudoscience and hatred.

Glad to know that evidence-based and reason-based atheism is the fastest growing phenomenon in the world.

Within half a century or so religion will be relegated to the most obscure corners of the world where brainless fanatics, who, by then, will constitute a minority of the world's population, can still worship their mythical God and hallucinate about heaven, hell and coming of a future messiah.
