Hard—Truth Bad news for you ericlipps, you are an ignorant fool. As it happens, I actually do know something about intelligence testing.
You think talking about something that happened almost a century ago is a good anti-IQ test argument? Using dangerous levels of x-rays, and other counterporductive practices a hundred years ago, is a reason to condemn what doctors do now?
Based on your repeated ignorant comments, it is unlikely you even know the original purpose of the first IQ test. You would have to use google, to find out. You libtards think a leftist ideology is sufficient to suffuse yourselves with knowledge and wisdom.
In that, you are completely misguided.
Your references to physics and medicine are non sequiturs look it up. And as it happens, I do know the original purpose of IQ tests which, for all I know, you looked up on Google: Others, doing research on intelligence, also know it.
