image for Theologian determines God's IQ - intelligent design questioned
God said to be 'furious' over findings

In post-modern times, 'intelligent design' is the theory most often offered as a challenge to Darwinian evolution.

According to the theory of intelligent design, various physical structures, such as the human eye, are simply too well-made to be considered the result of accident. This is taken to be evidence not only for the existence of God, but also, of His creation of the universe, and of His intelligence.

Thurmon Norman, a theologian with Mudbury University, says this raises the question of God's IQ.

'If we're to have intelligent design, we have to ask what level of intelligence is involved', he says.

Referring back to the standard method of calculating IQ, he says that we must assume that the average god has an IQ of 100.

'That's exactly the same benchmark used for assessing any intellect', Norman says. 'The next step is to assess the state of the universe.'

'It is widely known that good and evil are essentially in equilibrium', he points out. 'Evil is easily recognizable as mistakes made in the course of creating the universe. Being roughly in equilibrium, we can deduce that roughly half of everything God did was a mistake.'

'With this, we can easily calculate that God's IQ is quite close to 50.'
