Bullshit. I have yet to see a single 'fact' on de Garis' part. As
I said about a week ago, de Garis has made a number of estimations based on
heresy and irrational testing. A fact is something that *is*. If someone
says that there are 14 male geniuses to every 1 female genius, I'm not going
to accept it as fact unless it is *proven* beyond a doubt. Show me all the
SAT scores so I can see for myself if he is right. The question is this:
did he see *all* the SAT scores before he made his conclusion? I very much
doubt it.

Ingredi Externus!
