Intelligent Design: Immigrant Genuises

Posted by Jerry on December 8, 2005

What’s up with the majority these young genuises being of Asian and/or Indian decent? Is there a pattern here? Are the majority of smart people defacto non-American? Immigrant geniuses like these… is this an example of Intelligent Design among humans?
Should we see this pattern and recognize that an Intelligent Designer wanted it that way?
So does that mean that the Asian and East Indian cultures are intellectually superior to other cultures?

Hmmm… food for thought.

    Oh my god. So, I just read this post as I came into work this morning, and for a moment I thought, “what a dunce! Who would write something like this?!”
    And a split-second later, I realized this is MY blog, I wrote it!
    Anyway, so… I guess a disclaimer is certainly warranted here. The above post is dripping with sarcasm… incase you didn’t notice.

  2. Yes, and a drop of that sarcasm fell on my tongue and yes, I tasted it and yes, oh yes, it was sweet, and I said yes…

    of course we noticed the sarcasm however arguing is too fun to resist-
    to your last question no. haha!

    american born kids have everything handed to them. immigrants don’t. they (it would seem, must) work harder and hence achieve more when this work ethic is applied. their cultures (from my experience babysitting both asian and indian children) still values things this generation of americans don’t.

    Good point. I’m glad you saw that. I was merely pointing out the apparent tendency of humans to see patterns and designs in anything and everything! Sometimes the pattern is indeed an attribute of the observed phenomona, but sometimes it is not.
    The only way one can really figure out when it is, and when it is not, is through repeated empirical tests. (incidentally, faith allows you to accept any pattern any design anytime on anything… like the face of the Virgin mary on that turkey sandwich or something, being sold on ebay).
