Whoa there!

Skeptisicm is the basis of scientific inquiry and discussion.  Just because
someone you once knew had an idea does not make it a good idea. There is
something called "the burden of proof " that is missing from this idea.
Besides who can agree on what is intelligence, what regions or processes of
the brain are critical to things intelligent, and what the eeg might have
to do with subtle differences in qualitative assessment of thought?  Frank
Lefever took a reasonable position especially considering some of the way
out stuff that tramples this list serve.
