@damo Thats interesting, I'll gave to look into the Flynn effect. I'm only partially aware of the bell curve mainly through Harris's recent interactions with Murray as well as through some of Stefan Molyneux's videos. Plan to read Murray's book at some point this year, the violent reaction to academic research however does concern me especially when people go down the 'facts are racist' route.
My point here is similar but from a different point of view. As Folau can't prove he is correct, especially to those who don't believe in heaven/hell it is then far easier to ignore him and claim he is just another 'crazy' christian just as you would a screaming homeless man with a 'hail the apocalypse' sign. Facts, figures and analysis are much harder to deal with.... but anyway I think we've trailed waaaaay off the aussie rugby subject..
Tah's going well, where's that bloke who used to always say 'this is our year' before disappearing from the forum at the later stages of the comp?
