Indiana University study: having children significantly lowers parents’ IQs

A five-year study run by Indiana University’s Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction proves what many in the scientific community have always suspected: having children significantly lowers the IQ of both male and female parents.

Well, pro-lifers may be outbreeding
pro-choicers, but we’re
dumber for it. 😉 [It’s satire. – Funky]

    LOL! I just took a gander around the Hoosier Gazette (where I found the story) and it’s satire! It’s not very good or entertaining satire, mind you. I found that story by using StumbleUpon. It’s a very cool tool. I’ll be more careful next time I use it, though. *smacks head*

    This is not remotely plausible:

    In every single one of the 173 cases, both parents scored at least twelve points lower on the second IQ test, with the majority of parents losing twenty or more IQ points.

    Every single one? of 173?? at least 12 points lower??? Both parents????

    What about the control group? Oh, I guess there wasn’t one…..

    In my parental stupidity, I just meandered over to the ol’ Kinsey Institute… where they deny this story.
