    You think that it takes an IQ of 140 to subtract two numbers WITH A CALCULATOR?

    •  Again, I think you misread what I wrote. (0+ / 0-)

      I didn't say you needed high IQ to subtract two numbers.  I said you didn't need a high IQ to get a master's degree.

      Ergo, you can have someone with a master's degree who cannot subtract two numbers, because the master's degree is not proof that he isn't dumb.  See?

      •  The implication of your statement (0+ / 0-)

        "A master's degree is not like a 140 on an IQ test, it's just a master's degree" is that a master's degree does not guarantee the ability to subtract because that is an ability for which an IQ of 140 is required.

        •  No, it isn't. (0+ / 0-)

          No such inference can be drawn from that sentence.
