 Late that evening Jesus gave the united group a memorable talk on "Magic and Superstition." In those days the appearance of a bright and supposedly new star was regarded as a token indicating that a great man had been born on earth. Such a star having then recently been observed, Andrew asked Jesus if these beliefs were well founded. In the long answer to Andrew's question the Master entered upon a thoroughgoing discussion of the whole subject of human superstition.   

 
     
 The courses of the stars in the heavens have nothing whatever to do with the events of human life on earth. Astronomy is a proper pursuit of science, but astrology is a mass of superstitious error which has no place in the gospel of the kingdom.


The examination of the internal organs of an animal recently killed can reveal nothing about weather, future events, or the outcome of human affairs.


The spirits of the dead do not come back to communicate with their families or their onetime friends among the living.


Charms and relics are impotent to heal disease, ward off disaster, or influence evil spirits; the belief in all such material means of influencing the spiritual world is nothing but gross superstition.


Casting lots, while it may be a convenient way of settling many minor difficulties, is not a method designed to disclose the divine will. Such outcomes are purely matters of material chance. The only means of communion with the spiritual world is embraced in the spirit endowment of mankind, the indwelling spirit of the Father, together with the outpoured spirit of the Son and the omnipresent influence of the Infinite Spirit.


Divination, sorcery, and witchcraft are superstitions of ignorant minds, as also are the delusions of magic. The belief in magic numbers, omens of good luck, and harbingers of bad luck, is pure and unfounded superstition.


The interpretation of dreams is largely a superstitious and groundless system of ignorant and fantastic speculation. The gospel of the kingdom must have nothing in common with the soothsayer priests of primitive religion.


The spirits of good or evil cannot dwell within material symbols of clay, wood, or metal; idols are nothing more than the material of which they are made.


The practices of the enchanters, the wizards, the magicians, and the sorcerers, were derived from the superstitions of the Egyptians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, and the ancient Canaanites. Amulets and all sorts of incantations are futile either to win the protection of good spirits or to ward off supposed evil spirits.


He exposed and denounced their belief in spells, ordeals, bewitching, cursing, signs, mandrakes, knotted cords, and all other forms of ignorant and enslaving superstition.

Forever, music will remain the universal language of men, angels, and spirits.

 The average IQ in America is 98,                                   

                               

From IQ data taken from a book by university professors Richard Lynn and Tatu Vanhanen called “IQ and the Wealth of Nations” and a website                                     that showed IQ data calculated from state SAT and ACT scores, there is an indication that this, indeed, is the average level                                     of intellect in the US.
                           
 
According to international  IQ charts, the United States rates 18  behind other nations in average intellectual levels. At the top is Hong Kong at 107; South Korea,  106; Japan, 105; Taiwan   and Singapore, 104; Austria,   Germany, Italy and The   Netherlands, 102; Sweden   and Switzerland at 101; Belgium,  China, New Zealand and   the United Kingdom at 100; Hungary, Poland and Spain   at 99.

According to the Mensa   IQ group, these numbers are not bad, although they could be much better, especially in the United States where educational opportunities have been touted as among the best, and our universities have excelled for years.

 
People in the IQ range of 90 to 110 are considered good learners and hands-on people well adapted for public service jobs. They make good secretaries, bank tellers, police officers, machinists and sales clerks. That just about describes the American people today. Where are                                     the artists, the writers, the great mathematicians, inventors? We are not producing them any more.

Remember that these numbers  are “average,” which means that some are much lower, while others are higher. People at 70 to 80 IQ are thought                                     of as slow, simple-minded individuals that need supervision just to function. Those at 120 and above are the creative ones,  the leaders.

 
The bottom line to all of this is that Americans are falling behind. Either we are producing dumber people, or something has gone very wrong with                                     our education system. The masses are turning out to be bungling idiots, content on their menial 9-5 job, their nightly ration                                     of beer and Saturday afternoon football.
