IQ tests get meaningless at that level. The experts will be the first to admit that. Christopher Langan may be a very bright person, but that does not mean he is the "smartest person in the world."
And one thing he would agree with us on is that Langoliers is full of crap. He may believe in God but it is more of a small letter "g" god rather than Langoliers "GOD!!!"
A quote from Alan:
"I believe in the theory of evolution, but I believe as well in the allegorical truth of creation theory. In other words, I believe that evolution, including the principle of natural selection, is one of the tools used by God to create mankind. Mankind is then a participant in the creation of the universe itself, so that we have a closed loop. I believe that there is a level on which science and religious metaphor are mutually compatible."
They have special ones devised on that level.
See the link i gave.

Pole-dancing seems to be a sign too!

And no I would not think myself as full of crap. I hold a higher opinion of my self.
'World's smartest man' refuses $1m prize for solving mathematics puzzle
A reclusive Russian genius has refused to accept $1m (£667,000) in prize money for solving the Poincare Conjecture, one of the most difficult puzzles in mathematics.
Dr Grigori Perelman, who has been dubbed "the smartest man in the world", refused the money, despite living in poverty in a cockroach-infested flat in St Petersburg.
This guys a Theist also.
Reminds me of a mention in a link on science in Russia.
Gd- gene found in students and population of Komora.

Did they mention what god?
'Reclusive life leads to overdosing on gods.'

He clearly does not believe in your god.
He knows, like any other sane person, that Genesis is merely a book of fairy tales.
You should not try to get support from someone who clearly disagrees with you. Alan believes the theory of evolution. He does believe that "god" is involved somehow, but clearly not to the miraculous poofing species out of nothing by magic.
But you said:

"Christopher Langan may be a very bright person, but that does not mean he is the "smartest person in the world."

And one thing he would agree with us on is that Langoliers is full of crap"

And my joke was Langan was me Langoliers.

Further down in the post you started talking about Alan.

Oh by the way Alan who?

<quoted text>Funny how you just quoted someone as mathematically proving the existence of a god yet ignore the same mathematics that prove the flood and Babble impossible.
Not funny. Math answers can be incorrect while others are correct.

I'm think in math class test you had some of each on your test. Therefore it should not be shocker.

As SZ stated IQ test become worthless at the level of these people. However while your stripper took off her clothes the Russian Guy was solving a million dollar math problem.

You must be so proud that one of your slime bottom suckers that get naked to make money has a high IQ.

Well one of my country's members solves a math problem that no one else could.

Took me ages to find the proper form.
I keep confusing Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan and Italian.
Latin is less confusing. That's a good thing because some bloke with airs, figured it would be a good idea to use that as language of first choice to translate Luvian in.
ARHA uhhh?? had to look that up, but i first thought it was part of the language!?
