Indiana University study: having children significantly lowers parents? IQs

By Mike Gaddis, THG News

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.

Dr. Hosung Lee, director of the study, was not surprised with the findings. ?The research proved that our hypothesis was correct. Having children does retard one?s brain activity, and since both parents lost intelligence, we must assume that this loss has a psychological rather than biological cause.?

The IQ tests show that when a child is born, the part of the brain that makes one think objectively takes the biggest hit when it comes to losing brainpower. ?This explains why every parent thinks their child is the smartest kid in class or the best athlete, even if that child is as dumb as a box of rocks or needs a calendar to time their forty-yard dash. People who before were intelligent and open-minded turn into raving lunatics who want to blame a teacher or coach every time their mediocre child fails,? said Lee.

Lee says the Kinsey Institute will continue to test the couples participating in the study to determine if the loss of intelligence is reversible once children grow up and leave the nest and if parents who continue having children lose even more intelligence.

I know my IQ dropped markedly - but I still say it was because my daughter stole my brains (not that they left of their own accord)

This explains a great deal! Hmmmmm . . . . .

I can only hope that the opposite is true, otherwise, I'm a goner.
