"Higher" education: Ohio State core class teaches Christians are dumber than atheists

OSU-psych-question-2014
Campus Reform: An Ohio State University (OSU) class has apparently determined another fundamental difference between Christians and atheists: their IQ points.
An online quiz from the school’s Psychology 1100 class, provided to Campus Reform via tip, asked students to pick which scenario they found most likely given that “Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125.” The correct answer? “Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.”
According to a student in the class who wished to remain anonymous, the question was a part of an online homework quiz. Students were required to complete a certain amount of quizzes throughout the course but were encouraged to finish all of them in order to prep for the final exam.
“I understand that colleges have a liberal spin on things so it didn’t surprise me to see the question, which is a sad thing,” the student told Campus Reform in a phone interview. “But how can you really measure which religion has a higher IQ?”
Psychology 1100 is a general education requirement class which can primarily be taught by an undergraduate teacher’s assistant.
While the student said the quizzes were based on the textbook used in class, an OSU employee in the psychology department who wished to remain nameless said quizzes are oftentimes created by the teacher’s assistant.
The employee added that the psychology department is “very open to talking with students” if they are worried about grading or a question on an exam.
OSU explicitly prohibits discrimination on campus against any individual based on “age, ancestry, color, disability, gender identity or expression, genetic information, military status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, HIV status, or veteran status,” according to the university’s policy.
“Colleges will tolerate pretty much any religion other than Christianity,” the OSU student said. “If colleges really want to give everyone a fair shot, they should stay away from making comments about any religion.”
Dr. Mike Adams, an outspoken conservative Christian professor at the University of North Carolina, said “every group is protected from offensive speech on campus except for conservative Christians.”
Adams also added that applying this principle to other types of groups would be taboo on college campuses. “So would it be permissible to force blacks to take a class teaching that blacks would have a lower IQ than white people?” he said in an interview with Campus Reform.
This isn’t the first time a researcher has used psychology to suggest those with more social conservative or even religious values have lower IQ scores. A 2011 study published in Psychological Science claimed that “lower general intelligence…in childhood predicts greater racism in adulthood, and this effect was largely mediated via conservative ideology.”
“When science arose, it arose in the West and it did so in Christian nations. It did so because Christianity—with its assumptions about an orderly universe and its emphasis on obtaining knowledge as a cultural value—[was] necessary for science to develop and to flourish,” Adams said. “That anti-Christian bigots use science to attack Christianity is more than Pharisaic hypocrisy. It is deeply ingrained institutional bigotry.”
OSU declined to comment to Campus Reform for this story.
Well, OSU is just being good little commies after all:
goals

  • #17: Get control of the schools.
  • #27: Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity (which is ironic since this generation is self-absorbed [#me!] and has postponed maturation).

  2. Just more proof of the spiritual nature to the war being waged against Christians. I will send emails letting this college know that their actions are totally unacceptable.

     
  3. A most peculiar thing: when the trailer for God’s Not Dead came out, athiests, liberals, and even a few Christians immediately began to criticize the movie for its “strawmen”. It was labelled “propaganda”. They claimed this was an unfair portrayal of an athiest professor, and how a Christian student being picked on by one is unlikely/impossible to actually happen. I’m sure these people will conveniently forget the bold statements they’d made, or pretend this subtle-as-a-trainwreck piece of indoctrination doesn’t exist. The alternative, of course, is this is someone’s idea of a joke. Either option doesn’t look good.

      Emmicarter, great observation! Even when I was in college in the early 1070s, there was a hardened core of visceral hatred toward all Christians. I had just committed my life to Jesus Christ, and faced a strong headwind from the smart-asses in the facility.

       
  4. 1. Notice the BULLSEYE Logo for Campus “Reform” aka Campus Brainwashing.
    2. Notice the class is Psychology 1100 > a “hidden in plain sight” Number 11.
    3. Notice the supposed lower-IQ fellow was named Theo as in Theos (Greek > God > Mighty One), Theocratic, Theocracy (God-rule). So not only was the question/answer an insult to Christians, but naming the guy Theo was probably an intentional jab at God Himself. The little twerp who created the questions is probably a homo+atheist.
    I don’t know how anyone stomachs college with these Commies running the show. What’s the big draw for college? To be Dumbed-Down ever further, saddled with big fat loans? I’m glad I never went. However, I am glad there are lawyers who went to college so they can sue these “Institutions of Bimbo Learning” for every discrimination against Christians. Sue First, Talk Later. Make ’em Hurt in the Pocketbook.
