But it doesn't really have to do with anything, and as with most studies that examine a certain demographic, it doesn't mean that everyone in that demographic is accurately represented by the statistics. 100% rule.
I absolutely agree. It's a bit of an odd study really considering in one of the studies they only used adolescents. Adolescents aren't exactly fully developed.

And here's another critism: "Commentators on the survey attribute the educational levels to sociological factors, such as age, class and income, making no claims about intelligence."

Which is true, intelligence isn't measured by education.

All these countries were used in polls

Well it's not quick becoming a world-famous prog-rock musician.

I'm very observant of my religion (Luciferian) . . . animal and child sacrifices, Black Mass, group orgies, impregnating women named Rosemary against their will in order to carry the Devil's child, summoning Belial and Astaroth to posses little chubby girls . . . well, you get the idea!
