How Smart Are Americans?

Debate Information

Kid: Hey Mum, today at school this I mean American kid said to me that he thinks Australians are du-mb.

Mother: Well son, it's a bit rich for a I mean American kid to be coming out with that when statistics show that there are far more religious people in America. Given that evidence shows religious people have lower IQs than atheists, it is completely the other way around. Especially when you consider that they still use old imperial measurements, still print bank notes on paper in the same colour for every denomination and mis-spell common English words. They drive on the wrong side of the road causing a much higher road toll because they won't wear seat belts, forcing car manufacturers to supply higher ballistic air bags, causing broken bones and deafness.  And talking of ballistics, there are more guns than people over there.

Kid: Gee Mum, can I take my slingshot to show and tell tomorrow?

Mother: Great idea son, and remember to take plenty of marbles with you (winks at son).

Kid: Mum, from where does the word "slingshot" originate?

    Argument Topic: Measurable Intelligence

    An interesting and measurable way to determine a country’s collective intellect is by assessing its number of Nobel Prizes.  By that measurement, America is far superior with 375 Nobel Prizes as of 2021.  In second place is the UK with a paltry 131.

    Go America!

    If you want to do it this way, then it makes more sense to calculate the number of Nobel Prizes per capita. According to the Wiki, as of 2018, the US comes up at number 15 which is very respectable. The UK is at number 10.

    It does not seem very reasonable to me to only look at the outliers, however, especially if the metric is a somewhat arbitrary award that does not even apply to people in all intellectual fields (mathematicians, for instance, are widely considered to be some of the smartest people on Earth, and they are not eligible for a Nobel Prize nomination).

    Jewish Americans mean IQ 120

    Asian Americans mean IQ 106

    Caucasian Americans mean IQ 103

    Hispanic Americans mean IQ 97

    African Americans mean IQ 85.

    Funny how this measurable fact seems to co relate to economic outcomes, propensity to criminal behaviour, and welfare dependency, doesn't it?     Intelligent people would consider that a a causal link.     Dummies who put much more emphasis on wishful thinking and humanitarian ideologies will never admit a connection.
