/* Diminishing intelligence, etc. */
:::::::::::Explain this: why are you so opposed to the possibility of intelligence declining, and the existence of a young earth? When you can look at your own position objectively, then you can realize great insights.--[[User:Aschlafly|Andy Schlafly]] 16:52, 17 June 2011 (EDT)
::::::::::::Andy, your analogy is fatally flawed and fails to persuade. You're essentially arguing that your mind is closed. Is your mind open to outside influence? Then the law of entropy does not apply, as it is not closed.
::::::::::::Would an increase in intelligence be evidence for or against a young earth? Why can't you answer the question? Wouldn't the [[Flynn effect]] (a theory much more widely accepted than your assertion to the contrary) be stronger evidence for a young earth because if you extrapolated it backwards, society would have been so unintelligent as to not survive?
::::::::::::How do you reconcile your insight that society becomes less intelligent with your insight that society becomes more conservative?
::::::::::::I'm not opposed to the existence of a young earth. Is your mind open to that? [[User:BradB|BradB]] 17:46, 17 June 2011 (EDT)
