I I dont know why chritians are afraid of muslims. I Think Quran is only holy book which is challenging the bible for its errors in science. chritians and some western medias trying to maline islam,at the same time islam is sreading to fast in western coutries.acoording to bible jesus never came to form a religion and followers of him. if sameone says it he as to proove himself as a christian acoordong to mark last chapter if anybody takes poison in my name he will be alive. can anybody try this.means there is no chritianity. todays chrtians are not followers of jesus they follow paul apostile. thats why they belong to paulnity.muslims are perfactly following jesus they are following the commendements which jesus says to follow according to bible .as per the science if chritians schoolars didnt understand the lauguage of quran what can muslims do.however mohammed was a illetrate but he can say today bigbang theory which mentioned in quran before 1400 years ago. how will a baby forms in mothers womb day by day is perfactly mentioned .however about pheros deadbody in quran says i will keep the dead body of pheros till last day of the world this body was found in recent year but there are so many proofs that quran is perfect holy book.so face the challenge of quran. first try to understand the launguage of of quran.
The teachings of the koran are erroneous, they come from the disgusting ramblings of a mad man and his father the devil. there are so many proofs that the koran is not a holy book. for instance. mohamed has relegated the son of the true God (Jehovah) to a secondary position to that of mohamed a lying, murdering, pedophile. The koran teaches that women are of no value, mohamed taught that rape was OK, and to day we see the results of his teachings, rape and murder are an every day part of islamic life.

The more religious the country, the dumber the population. Or, perhaps the other way round: the dumber the population, the more religious the country.

Low IQ = inferiority complex = hatred of everything and everyone different and even mildly critical ... This is, unfortunately, particularly true for the followers of Islam.

There are only three Muslim countries in the list of 43 with average IQ of 90 and higher, and that includes Israel with about 20% of it's population being Muslim*. Two others are Malaysia (IQ92) and Turkey (IQ90).

Now, in the bottom part of the table, with average IQ under 90 (and all the way down to 59!) we see 23 Muslim (or predominantly Muslim) countries out of 38 listed.

If we keep political correctness out of the equation, the conclusion is rather obvious.

* I am not aware of any study been conducted, that tested separately average IQs of ethnic groups in Israel, although I do know that Ashkenazi Jews have the highest IQ of all ethnic groups worldwide, so the effect of that 20% Muslim population must have been very significant to put Israel at IQ94. Comparative studies in Germany (average IQ102) showed significantly lower IQ of the Turkish segment of the population.

They don't much like dogs, either - except for illegal fighting and gambling purposes.

People with Science/engineering, mathematics and economics degrees rank highest in average IQs. If its combined with critical/rational thinking, and not being brainwashed by religions, and living in one of the least religious/irrational countries in the world (like scandinavia), they should be doing the best. It is good news for me tho, since im studying both science and economics, and live in norway. I found some statistics showing college degrees with highest average IQS: http://www.statisticbrain.com/iq-estimates-by... But IQs is something i dont always take too seriously. Its very difficult to measure full scale intelligence with some test. Maybee if you take many of them tho.

Hmmm...so you contradict the koran then, which *tells* you to consider disbelievers as the lowest of creatures!
