gja: Stanford-Binet tests as ranked 1/x of population. I think you knew that, but chose instead to be snarky or obtuse. I have also been given Wechsler tests.Morality and humane behavior, from whatever source, should be a welcome thing in this world. We should not be discouraging it merely because of an affiliation.
Farking Canuck: gja: Stanford-Binet tests as ranked 1/x of population. I think you knew that, but chose instead to be snarky or obtuse.

We should not be discouraging it merely because of an affiliation.No I am not familiar with any standardized tests aside from the famous IQ test. I consider them to be measures of many things but never really representative of true intelligence. I am an engineer (turned IT professional) myself and I have to say that I know more than a few engineers that were good at passing tests but I am ashamed that they carry the degree. They are not stupid per se, but they cannot solve real problems which is the core of engineering.As for the snark ... I found the use of "mm" as your units humorous as this is most commonly used as the unit for millimeters (hence my comment). A quick google search suggests it can be used for million but it is not a use I've seen before.Personally I feel that morals are defined by society ... both in laws, which serve as the very base set, and in other 'codes' like "do unto others" and "pay it forward". There is little need to go beyond that, especially since they are fluid. Going a static, magic based source simple loses you credibility. Especially since that source condones things that are currently considered immoral like slavery.
gja: BTW, I am an engineer (EE, ME) with areas of study in light, near-light, laser and RF transmission.
gja: all of us who identify as Christian
gja: I identify as a man who most strongly leans toward Christian beliefs. That is: the teachings of the man who is thought to be Jesus.
gja: I have had this discussion in numerous other threads.
