Some say that putting your brain to constant use sharpens it while other things such as music,alcohol and drama addiction/film addiction decrease its capability.One person perhaps impersonating as ex pat Hindu in the old forum said that Hindu scientists are not able to achieve anything significant as they marry soon,beget children and then become preoccupied with raising the family while true breakthroughs can only be achieved by say Jewish scientists when they forgo marriage up until a considerable age and continuously focus on research.
palli or halli in Dravidian languages means a village just like gaav in Aryan languages means a village.palli or halli in Aryan Mauryan Imperial era around 200 B.C designates a tribal hamlet.So many of those in South India are indeed descendants of tribals and are still keeping up that heritage.

It's all about the power of knowledge - where knowledge is power. From early age Jews are educated to seek and acquire knowledge as form of service to society and means for self defense.

That explains the reason Israel today is one of the most advanced countries on earth. Per capita, more startup companies are formed there then any other country - even US.

O.k,I assumed word puzzles to be zig saw puzzles.Also the above person says that Africans have the lowest I.Q.However I have known one senior of mine from class 6th to class 10th whose name was Kalyaan Baabu.He was a converted Christian.Not only was he of completely black complexion ,but his facial features also resembled those of the black race to a large extent.However he was the son of salaried parents,both of whom drew relatively good salaries.So perhaps he was fed a good iron rich diet.

He passed Engineering and works as a software engineer.So perhaps there is too much of generalisation with regards to blacks.

NS, the crucial word is "average". Some groups ON AVERAGE have a higher IQ than others. That does not mean that ALL members of that group are more / less intelligent than others.

It just means that fewer/more people fit into the overall top 5% in one group compared to another. In the overall human population, 5% of them have an IQ over 125. The "middle" value is 100. 5% have an IQ below 75.

If you select some smaller subgroup, you find first the middle value may be different. Not only that, the "spread" may be different.

It would be rather silly to draw conclusions about an individual based on just such data.

I know of another person who was a classmate of mine for the year 1999-2000 who was good at studies.He was the son of a rich sailor and was known to drink a lot.He was a bit casteist as he belonged to one of the two dominating castes of my linguistic land,but he too looked very much similar to a person of the black race with completely black complexion.

That classmate of mine was not the son of an ordinary sailor but someone of the rank of captain or still higher in a commercial company.

SAMI!!!! what happen to you Mamzer (ממזר). You drink too much booze ( in Hebrew means "contempt" or "disdain") & it's getting through your bone-headed scull?.

Is that your jealousy, or the usual temper tantrum. If they are "cheating, lying, usury, twisting, cowards, etc, " why the Sunni world is rushing to kiss Bibi's ass - begging Israel to help them from Iran. Can you imagine? - A Muslim begs Jews to defend him against his fellow Muslim.

After all, You saw it with your own eyes just 2 days ago how many Arab leaders sat in with him in same room in Poland.

As for Bibi-yah Habibi - much like in any democracy - leaders do not represent the values of the entire country. He is having his day in court. Meanwhile he is doing a very good job sticking it to your uncles in Iran. Despite the Mullah's bravado - they fear him more then they are willing to admit.

Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud said, "With Israeli money and Saudi brains, we can go far." :lol:

Jews are smart (idiot) but Arabs are intelligent.

Prince Turki explained that the reality of the situation is that Saudi Arabia, and possibly other Gulf states, are never going to fully normalize ties with Israel until the conflict with the Palestinians is solved. He claiming that Netanyahu's portrayal of warming ties with the Arab world was a deception... :tongueout:

SAM, intelligence is influenced by many factors, genetic first, but also cultural. Some cultures value intelligence and education more than others and some cultures have more wealth than others to put into education.

That is why first you see POOR countries often haveing a lower average IQ. But there is also a correlation to Islam: Muslim countries have a lower average IQ than most Western countries. Despite of the oil wealth, in many Arab countries the average IQ is quite low. (84 or thereabout in most of them.)

That is because modern Islam at least does not see education and intelligence a priority. Did you know than little Israel publishes more books each year than ALL the Arab world put together, many times more?

The Arabs have their excuse, though: "If it's in the Koran, there's no need to publish it and if it's not in the Koran, you mustn't publish it." Simple.

Now in my childhood I have read a story about sage Valmiki.That sage's original name is Ratnakara and he is a tribal or was raised tribals.He lives by dacoity. Now sage Narada who happens to pass by in that forest once asks him why he is resorting to dacoity. Ratnakara answers "to feed my wife and kids".Then Narada asks Ratnakara to go to his home and ask his wife and children if they are ready to share the burden of his sins in the hereafter.He goes home,asks that question and gets the answer "as a husband and as a father it is your duty to feed us , then why should we share the burden of your sins?"

Now there are some cultic tendencies in the above story.

Dejected,he Ratnakara shuns his family,observes penances etc and turns into a sage.So per this story every individual is free to share or not to share the burden of sins of his family members.The same idea can be seen in the practice of the ritual of voluntary Suttee where the woman who commits self sacrifice will free 7 generations of the bygone ancestors of both her paternal and maternal sides as well as the sins of 7 generations of would be descendants.Needless to say that she had become a scapegoat for somebody else's sins.

In the Telugu film Murari,the goddess curses a family whose ancestors tried to rob the temple that every generation of the offspring will lose a male as a punishment.But in the end,the hero who hails from that family is spared when his grandma takes up that curse upon herself and sacrifices herself by drowning in a river.Now someone else was punished for someone else's sins.

Same can be seen even in the 1990s film of Bhairava Dweepam where the mother of the hero,takes upon herself the curse of her son by praying to the mother goddess i.e curse swapping takes place similar to the concept of scapegoat in Judaism.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC7-jaRgQ0g" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The Mughal Emperors were muslims.However there is one strange story regarding Babar and Humayun.It is said that when his only son Humayun fell ill and showed no signs of recovery,Babur his father gave up drink,food etc and slowly starved himself to death.As Babur neared death,Humayun gradually recovered.Once again someone else took up someone else's sins or tried to prevent their sins from showing an effect on their descendants.

The idea of sacrifice of Jesus as a sort of atonement for the sins of all of mankind also rings the same bells as the above pagan stories.So it is no wonder that Jews consider Christians as idolators but not Muslims.

When the British asked the Hindu theologians to present alternative interpretations against the Sati/the Suttee as they called it,they were given those interpretations.Now prominent Hindus of those periods raised a hue and cry saying that those interpretations are presented by drukard and philanderer ones and hence are not valid.

Now that line of interpretation is in line with the veggie line of many Hindus of today for the ritual of Sati is extremely violent , though a rarity.To paraphrase things in short,what Hindus like as of today are the interpretations of those drunkard and philanderer theologians.

Similarly even in Judaism,even smart Jews seem not follow the words of their books when it is clearly written down in their texts that God will visit the inequities of their forefathers upon several generations of their descendants.

That was about the passing down of congenital syphilis, I was told when I was a student. I don't think there's much of that about now.
