Intelligence and the Divine Creation
About the Sculpture:
In his decoration of the Cathedral of Saint Lazare in Autun, France, French sculptor Gislebertus produced some of the most inventive, expressive work of the Romanesque period. Carved in the early 12th century, his elongated, snakelike Eve was the first large-scale nude to appear in European art since the days of ancient Rome. The sculpture is in the Musée Rolin in Autun.
Today in this study, John Philippe Rushton, a scientist states that he has proven that men are smarter than women and by a full 4 IQ points no less. The reasons for men's intellectual superiority are thought to be related to brain size, more neurons equalling better and faster reasoning.
This all reminds me of a joke I once heard. Adam was walking with God in the Garden of Eden and he had a few questions to ask of God. "God", he asked, "Why did you make woman so beautiful?" God answered, "So that you would love her my son. And God, "Why did you make woman so soft?" Again God answered, "So that you would love her my son."
Adam had one final question for God. "But God, why did you make woman so stupid?". God's answer, "So that she would love you, my son."
