Men are more intelligent than women

Hi guys, I just found out another interesting research although I think we do not really need to spend time and money to discover that. Any guy/man has a relationship with girl/woman before would have noticed that. It is again, about WOMEN. Oh but wait... perhaps this would be the tool for men to keep the women quiet when the women try to make some stupid arguments.

Men are more likely to win Nobel prizes and achieve excellence simply because they are more intelligent than women, an outspoken male academic has claimed.

Richard Lynn, the emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University, argues that men have larger brains and higher IQs than women, to such an extent that they are better suited to "tasks of high complexity".

His study is due to be published with Paul Irwing, a senior lecturer in organisational psychology at Manchester University, in the British Journal of Psychology in November. He said that men not only have larger brains but also have higher IQs, on average by about 5 points, than women.
This means more men than women have high IQs and the authors claim this means men are more likely to win Nobel prizes and make scientific discoveries, according to The Times Higher Education Supplement.

The professor has caused outrage in the past with claims that white people are more intelligent than blacks and that criminal traits are genetically inherited.

Dr Irwing said he had initially been reluctant to take part in the study, arguing that he would have personally preferred not to have discovered that men had a biological advantage.

I noticed something from last sentence... Dr Irwing is really a wise man no question, he knew the result before the study!

Women are evil?

I watched a documentary on the National Geographic Channel a while ago. I forgot the name, but it was about the New Testament or something. They briefly talked about a religious sect who believed that women are evil. I did not understand why they would believe such a thing until last night when I was lying awake in bed, unable to sleep as usual. Let me explain here.

Most people believe that we have souls, or we are infact spirits living in a material world. So the soul is the entity of life itself, and the body is just a vessel. And people believe in heaven and hell; that all good comes from heaven, and all evil from hell. The soul is pure, and is free from all temptation. But not flesh. With flesh comes the seven deadly sins. Vanity, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Wrath, Avarice (Greed), and Sloth. All these are the result of the sensory abilities of flesh. The body can interact with the physical world, and some of these interactions bring pleasure. So the body wants more, when the soul knows that it may be doing wrong. That little voice at the back of our heads will be telling us to stop, but our body desires more and more pleasure. So the fight of good against evil may infact be the fight between body and soul. Satan can be a metaphor for flesh. And Satan may have won a great victory a long time ago by trapping all souls in these vessels of flesh. The body is weak and can be damaged or destroyed, but the soul perseveres forever. So death can actually be the gift of man, where Satan is vanquished, and the soul released forever. If that is so, then birth is the Doom of man, where a soul is captured, and trapped in a weak, fragile, unholy vessel. So that sect may have seen that women are the agents of procreation, and the womb is the machine that manufactures these vessels to trap souls.

Note: I am not sexist. This is just a thought.

Malaysians told to pray for rain (What the...)

I read this from the BBC News which I think is funny and feel ashamed.

“Malaysia's Muslim community has been asked to pray for rain to lift the smog that has enveloped the capital, Kuala Lumpur, and surrounding areas. The request came from the country's prime minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, a day after he declared an emergency in two areas worst affected by the haze.”

Is there any non Malaysian who is reading my blog here? Please tell me what you would feel if your country’s leader made that speech, ok? I am just curious to know…

Indonesia’s failure to prevent slash and burn of its own forests causing serious damage to the health and the economy of the Malaysians. This ‘gift’ from our special neighbour is not something new, in fact it happens annually, just that the haze this year is the worst after 1997 and 1998.

Ok so what we have done so far? On Thursday, ministers from both countries agreed a three-point plan under which Malaysia will help to put out thousands of fires sweeping across Sumatra. Today, Malaysia’s Natural Resources and Environment Minister and Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister are having further talks with the Indonesians in Medan. (Why not the Indonesians come to KL to have talks with us? So they can see and smell for themselves the damage they have done to our country.)

I am just wondering if the haze is not from Indonesia, but our neighbours from the north or south, will the Malaysian government act so gentle? I still remember when the Thailand armed forces stormed the mosque and killed the Islamic terrorists in their own country about 1-2 years ago, Malaysia had big response. I think our country was not even in the state of emergency that time. Why today, I only see demonstration done by opposition party, why only opposition party demand compensation from Indonesia? Is it because of the haze that’s why I can’t see others.

Indonesians burn their forests at our expense every year. They damage our health and cause billions of loss to our economy every year. I don’t think Malaysian government and ASEAN can solve this problem. Talks have been proven useless, no word on when to stop farmers from island slashing and forest burning by the Indonesian government.

If pray can help, then I think Mr. Abdullah shouldn’t pray for rain as this cannot solve the problem, the haze will come back again next year. He should pray for the haze to hit Singapore, I mean very badly. Then I think a solution to the problem will be found, and the haze will not come again next year. What do you think?
