People are dumb because intelligence is not a prerequisite for fitness

Standard

“…there isn’t a universal correlation between higher intelligence and higher fitness. We know this for a fact, because variation in intelligence remains!”

That sounds a little like the economist’s argument that a $20 bill found lying on the street couldn’t possibly be real because someone would have picked it up by now, but as far as I remember my genetics class, his basic reasoning is sound.

    the analogy works if you assert there are lots and lots of $20 bills all over the place on every street. inflation, or funny money, or a trade-in-kind-economy. your premises have to be flawed.
