Scientific Evidence that Men and Women are Designed Differently

US Score by Race & ReligionTIMSS Math
Protestant White522
Catholic White396

Less than 5% of American 12th graders scored higher than 515 in TIMSS physics, compared to 75% of Norwegians who did, and 5% of Norwegians, Swedes, Russians, and Germans who scored higher than 725.  The number of Americans who scored as high as 725 is trivial compared to the fact that 99.99% of us scored lower than 550.  If these dismal scores are representative of all 300 million Americans, and there's little reason to believe they aren't, then less than 30,000 have an understanding of physics which even begins to approach the AVERAGE understanding of 4.4 million Norwegians, 8 million Swedes, 82 million Germans, and 162 million Russians.  In other words, in just those four countries, there are 128.2 million people who understand physics better than the top 30,000 here, which is 4,273 Europeans for each one American.


WOW, how LOW can we GO


Scoring 461 Not Easily Explained

Our unbelievably low 12th grade TIMSS Math score of 461 is almost too low to fathom or explain, which may be one reason our educators appear to have effectively shut it out of their minds.  Cognitive dissonance is difficult to deal with. We can't just presume that the 71% of our students who're Whites scored in the range of Switzerland (538), the 13% who're Hispanics scored in the range of Italy (477), the 3% who're Asians scored in the range of the Netherlands (579), because that would leave a *negative* score for the 13% who're Blacks:

538 x .71 + 477 x .13 + 579 x .03 + .13X = 461

382 + 62 + 17.4 = 461 - .13X, X = -0.4/.13 = -3

Score for American Whites Similar to Italy

A worst case scenario, where American Whites scored in the range of Italy (490), Hispanics in the range of South Africa (356), and Asians in the range of American Whites (490), would leave blacks with a score of 400.  But since this score is higher than that for the presumed score of Hispanics, and since American Hispanics score considerably higher than American Blacks in all other standardized tests, this is just not a possible scenario:

490 x .71 + 356 x .13 + 490 x .03 + .13X = 461

348 + 46.3 + 14.7 + .13X = 461

X = 52/.13 = 400

Score for American Whites Similar to France

An even less likely scenario is that American Whites scored in the range of France (525), Hispanics in a range between Italy and South Africa (436), Asians at least as high as the Netherlands (559), leaving blacks with a score of 111.5.  This is an impossible score because just guessing on the test would yield a score anywhere from 300-427:

525 x .71 + 436 x .13 + 559 x .03 + .13X = 461

373 + 56.7 + 16.8 + .13X = 461

X = 14.5/.13 = 111.5

The Religion Gap

South Africa's score of 356 is a composite of the 9.1% of the population who are Whites, who are mostly descendants of the Netherlands (who scored 560), and the other 90.9% of the population who're either Blacks or Coloreds, who had to have scored an average of 336.  We have no evidence that the 13% of Americans who are Blacks score much lower or much higher than this.  The Catholic Church claims as members 25% of the American population, of whom 13% are Hispanics and 12% are Whites. When the 2% who are jews and the 3% who are Asians are removed, this leaves 57% who are White Protestants who by all rights should have scored as high as their White brethren in Sweden, or 552.  If we assume that Asians scored in the same range, and that Hispanics and jews scored 64 points higher than Blacks, similar to the difference between Hispanics and Blacks in SAT Math, then in order for us to have scored a mere 461, White Catholics would have had to have scored 217.7, an impossibly low score indeed:

336 x 13% + 400 x 13% + 552 x 3% + 12% x X + 57% x 552 + 2% x 400 = 461

43.68 + 52 + 16.56 + .12X + 314.64 + 8 = 461

X = 217.7

French Scenario

A worst case scenario would be that White Protestants scored in the range of their brethren in Australia and France and New Zealand, or 522, that Asians scored no higher than Whites (contrary to most standardized tests) of 522, and that jews, Indians, and Hispanics scored only 40 points higher than Blacks, leaving White Catholics with a score of 396.

336 x 13% + 376 x 13% + 528 x 3% + 12% x X + 57% x 522 + 2% x 376 = 461

43.68 + 48.88 + 15.84 + .12X + 297.54 + 7.52 = 461

X = 396.2

This Religion Gap of 159 TIMSS Math points between White Protestants and White Catholics is beginning to approach the phenomenon revealed by the 220-301 SAT Math point gap between Whites in mostly Protestant states and Whites in mostly Catholic states, suggesting we are getting closer to explaining our amazingly low TIMSS Math Score of 461!

Swede Scenario

Is it impossible that scores for White Protestants would be an average of their Protestant brethren in Sweden, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, or 551, that Asians scored no higher than Whites (contrary to most standardized tests) at 551, and that jews, Indians and Hispanics scored only 40 points higher than Blacks, leaving White Catholics with a score of only 253?  This suggests that Catholic Whites score 83 points lower than Blacks, which explains much about their principles and behavior, particularly their claims about racial equality.

336 x 13% + 376 x 13% + 551 x 3% + 12% x X + 57% x 551 + 2% x 376 = 461

43.68 + 48.88 + 16.53 + .12X + 314.07 + 7.52 = 461

X = 252.7

Since this Religion Gap of 298 TIMSS Math points between White Protestants and White Catholics is so similar to  the 220-301 SAT Math point gap between White Protestants and White Catholics, this would appear to be the most likely explanation for our amazingly low TIMSS Math Score of 461!  Furthermore, it's possible that Asians, Hispanics, and even Blacks, score HIGHER than this, which would INCREASE the Catholic/Protestant gap even [email protected]!





Because media, educators, bureaucrats, politicians, and other powers that be studiously ignore the sad state of our high schools, as evidenced by SAT, TIMSS, NAEP, etc., and instead focus only on 8th grade performance, less than 7% of Americans are aware of just how low we scored in TIMSS at the 12th grade level.  Comparing 8th grade scores understates the problem because  45 countries who participated in this study of more than half a million students around the world proved that the last four years of a student's education is the most important part, and 8th grade scores obviously miss that part. Of 45 countries whose 12th graders participated in TIMSS Math, the boys in 35 of those countries scored higher than the 8th grade math score, and those in 7 countries scored lower.  In the US, 12th grade boys scored 56 points lower and 12th grade girls scored 104 points lower.  Where Swiss 8th graders scored 46 points or about one standard deviation higher than ours in math, their 12th grade boys scored 102 points or two standard deviations higher than our boys and 133 points or almost three standard deviations higher than our girls.

How shocked they all would be if they realized that our 12th grade girls scored DEAD LAST in physics, 130 points or almost three standard deviations lower than girls in Norway and almost 200 points or four standard deviations lower than boys in Norway, simply because the scores of American girls from the 8th to 12th grade dropped even faster than our boys, whose scores dropped even more than that for most girls. Conversely, relative to their 8th grade scores, 12th grade boys in Cyprus scored 89 points higher, in Norway scored 84 points higher, and in Sweden scored 66 points higher.

Whatever their high schools are doing that ours aren't we'd better start doing QUICKLY or it won't be long before we're a dark smudge on the "global economy". 

12th grade boys in the US scored a standard deviation lower than 8th grade US boys, whereas 12th grade boys in Cyprus, Norway, and Sweden scored a standard deviation higher than their 8th grade boys.


12th grade girls in the US scored TWO standard deviations lower than 8th grade US girls, whereas 12th grade girls in Cyprus, Greece, and Norway scored higher than their 8th grade girls.



EVERY nation which participated in this part of TIMSS, which is mostly European nations (and not Asian nations like Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan who blew the pants off our 8th graders) scored higher, MUCH higher, than us. 

The US is one of the only countries whose 8th and 12th grade boys who participated in TIMSS who experienced such a dramatic drop in scores from 8th to 12th grade.  Where our eighth grade boys scored only 3 points lower than Norway's (502 vs. 505), our twelfth grade boys scored 143 points lower (446 vs. 589, for a RELATIVE decrease of 140 points),   Where our eighth grade boys scored 30 points HIGHER than Cyprus (502 vs. 472), our 12th grade boys scored 115 points lower (446 vs 561) for a 145 point swing.   Latvian boys were 6 points lower at eighth grade but 63 points higher at twelfth grade for a 69 point swing, Denmark 9 points higher at the 8th grade and 94 points higher at the 12 grade for an 85 point swing, Sweden 18 points higher, then 140 points higher for a 122 point swing, Greece 12 points lower then 79 points higher for a 91 point swing, Russia 33 points higher then 117 points higher for a 150 point swing

It should be no comfort to us that the amount by which scores decreased for boys from 8th and 12th grade in Austria, the Czech Republic, and France is even greater than the amount by which ours decreased--we should find out why and avoid this pitfall, AT ALL COSTS.  The fact that these countries are predominately Catholic countries (France 88%, Austria 74%, and the Czech Republic 27-60%) suggests that Catholocism's effort to impose "sex equality" on boys IS NOT JUST A HUGE WASTE OF TIME--IT'S INCREDIBLY DESTRUCTIVE!

It doesn't help girls AT ALL--in Austria the 8 point gap between boys and girls increased by 52 points to 60, in the Czech Republic the 11 point gap increased by 63 points to 74, and in France the 6 point gap increased by 27 points to 33.






The only reason the gap between American boys and girls increased ten fold, from 5 points in 8th grade to 53 points in the 12th grade [a 9 IQ point gender gap] is that the scores of girls decreased more than the score of boys (104 vs. 56).  By some estimates, the gender gap at the 8th grade was already a standard deviation, and this drop in scores between 8th and 12th grade increased the gender gap to two standard deviations in the US and almost three standard deviations in Slovenia, Sweden, Cyprus, and Switzerland.

horizontal rule

In 8th grade TIMSS physics, the girls in all nations demonstrated they had been taught physics by scoring only slightly lower than the boys in those nations, except in Cyprus, Canada, and Australia where girls scored 3 points higher.  Czech students scored the highest, demonstrating an IQ range of 104, and boys in Cyprus scored the lowest, an IQ range of 83. 

But by the 12th grade, this all changed, dramatically.  Some of the lowest scoring 8th grade boys, like those in Norway, scored the highest in the 12th grade, while some of the highest scoring 8th grade girls, like Czech girls, scored almost last by the 12th grade.  While US boys and girls scored low in the 8th grade, they scored DEAD LAST by the 12th grade. While the IQ gap between boys in Norway and girls in the US in the 8th grade was only 2 points, it was 35 points by the 12th grade.  While the relative IQs of boys in Cyprus increased 25 IQ points, boys in Norway increased 22 IQ points, Sweden increased 18 IQ points, Greece 14 IQ points, Denmark 12 IQ points, Slovenia 11 IQ points, Russia and Latvia 10 IQ points, Germany 7 IQ points, Australia 6 IQ points, and in Canada by 1 IQ point, IQs for boys in the US decreased 3 IQ points. And where the relative IQs of girls in Norway and Cyprus increased 12 points, and in Greece increased 10 points, IQs for girls in the US decreased 11 points. 

Gender gap is five standard deviations


Gender gap is four standard deviations


All of this resulted in the 1 IQ point average gender gap in the 8th grade increasing to 11 IQ points by the 12th grade.  By the 12th grade, the largest gender gap, 16 IQ points, was in Slovenia, and the smallest, 6 IQ points, was in France.  The greatest increase in the gender gap of 14 IQ points was in Switzerland and Slovenia, and the smallest increase of 4 IQ points was in Greece.  The IQ of 12th grade girls in Norway was 13 IQ points higher than boys in the US, 23 IQ points higher than girls in the US, and 12 IQ points lower than boys in Norway.

Generally, a 10 point gap in IQ is a standard deviation.  The boys in all the nations who participated in TIMSS except France, Latvia, and Greece scored more than a standard deviation higher than the girls of each respective nation, and boys in Switzerland and Slovenia scored almost two standard deviations higher.  The almost gender equality between 8th grade boys and girls in the US turned into more than a standard deviation difference by the 12th grade, 53 TIMSS points or 11 IQ points.

correlating IQ and TIMSS

When this TIMSS data is correlated with Professor Lynn's IQ of Nations, r-squared is .57, showing a close relationship between this historic record of intelligence by nation and the most advanced and comprehensive measure of intelligence of half a million students around the world we've ever witnessed.  Making the assumption that this TIMSS data is more accurate or more up to date or a better assessment of IQ or more representative of the type of student demanded by industry than his data might not be precisely correct, but it enables us to create a template for measuring worldwide IQ by sex using TIMSS scores as a guide.

Based on this test, and this test alone, the greatest decreases required to get an r-squared of almost 1.0 are 9 points for Italy and Canada, 8 points for the US, and 6 points for Germany and Czech Republic.  The greatest increases are 7 points for Denmark, and 5 points for the Netherlands, Sweden, Iceland, and Slovenia.

Is this adjustment justified? In this day and age of electronics and semiconductors, and now semiconductors in every product all the way from cars to watches, de-emphasizing physics education [or in the case of the US, apparently actually sabotaging it] ought to be considered an economic crime, if not an outright criminal act.  Our extremely poor performance in the 8th grade in the first place, coupled with a DROP in scores from 8th grade to 12th grade that few other countries experienced, coupled with the social pathology brought on by multiculturalism, coupled with our having the undisturbed highest rates of divorce, homicide, violent crime, incarceration, and debt the industrialized world has ever seen, it would be amazing if Professor Lynn's estimate of an IQ of 98 for the US isn't 20 points lower rather than just 8 points lower.

Since the exact same thing is happening to the WHITE RACE in Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany, Russia, and Lithuania, the 9, 6, 6, 4, and 5 point drops, respectively, might actually reflect REALITY.  iow, it might actually be true that Professor Lynn is being kind, or is using data from a time BEFORE our multiculturalism disaster, and that TIMSS IS more accurate now.

The 5 and 9 point adjustments for Hungary and Italy, respectively, ARE justified, because multiculturalism had already ruined both countries centuries ago and neither does well in any of the other tests (even in PISA, a test of 15 year olds, both scored much lower than the average, 491 and 462 respectively).  There really isn't a single international test which supports an IQ of 102 for Italy, so if there's any "error" in any of Professor Lynn's data [and my bet is that there's not], then this might be it.



Now we can use this chart to estimate the IQ and thus the IQ gap between 12th grade boys and girls in different countries in a way that our so-called "educators" REFUSE to do (thus causing the complete collapse of God's Orderly Arrangement).  After almost five decades of "affirmative action" in this putative Christian nation, what have we got?  The anchor man (or in this case, the anchor "person") on these tests is the 12th grade American girl at 393, and the rising star is the 12 grade affirmative-action-free Norwegian boy at 589, almost 200 points higher, thanks mostly to the fact that he WAS educated in high school and DID score 84 points higher than Norwegian 8th grade boys (versus our 56 point DROP for boys from 8th to 12th grade).  AND Norwegian girls increased their score from 8th to 12th grade while ours DECREASED them by 104 points.

If our chart is correct, then this 196 TIMSS point gap represents a 35 point gap in IQ, a real monument to the success of multiculturalism.




From that chart, we can now create the following table and get a very accurate representation of IQ from a PHYSICS perspective.  If physics is an important skill to an industrialized nation (which of course it MUST be), then this "gender gap in IQ" within each country of 6 to 16 IQ points, which averages 10.75 points, and which is present in EVERY country, MUST be important:

Czech Republic440558Girls86 
Russian Federation507536Girls98 
United States393497Girls78 
Average495519 96.210.75


And finally we have the following chart which demonstrates very clearly where the winners and losers are.  You will not hear this from the "mainstream media": "Pure race Norwegian girls score 77 points higher than our multicuturalized boys".  Of course you also won't hear: "American boys down 56 points, Norwegian boys up 84 points", nor will you hear: "American girls down 104 points, Cypriot girls up 21 points".

Is it true?  From this perspective, it absolutely positively is true.  Is it important?  It's about a billion times more important than what happened to some suicide bomber who killed an alien enemy foreign jew 12,000 miles away, half a century ago

7% of American 12th grade girls vs. 40% of boys correctly answered Item G13:

A car moving at constant speed with a siren sounding comes towards you and then passes by.  Describe how the frequency of the sound you hear changes.

This 33% difference between boys and girls in this credible, objective, worldwide study proved that American 12th grade girls have some of the poorest average problem solving skills in the world.


TIMSS 12th grade gender gap in standard deviations

The standard deviation for international TIMSS scores was 100 points, but within each country it was around 40 points as it was in Switzerland and Taiwan. Across 14 different math and physics topics, the gender gap as measured in standard deviations was an average of 0.6 in the US, 1.0 internationally, and 1.4 in Switzerland.  It's not bad for a country for boys to outperform girls--in Switzerland, boys outperformed girls by two standard deviations in mechanics, but still Swiss girls scored 444 compared to 446 for our boys.

If you ignore the standings of all of the other countries, then of course it's meaningless to make the above comparisons. But when you include that US 8th graders ranked 28th out of 41 nations in all math subjects overall, and when you include that our 12th graders ranked 19th out of 21 nations in general math, then you can make a valid, meaningful, revealing comparison.

11 of the countries which scored higher than us in the 8th grade didn't even participate in 12th grade TIMSS. Singapore, Japan and Korea all scored more than 100 points higher at the 8th grade level but they didn't participate in 12th grade TIMSS. If those 11 countries had participated in 12th grade TIMSS, it is almost certain that the US would have then scored 30th out of 32 nations.

The only two countries which scored lower than us in 12th grade level general math were Cyprus and South Africa. But South Africa didn't participate in all of the 12th grade TIMSS subjects, and Cyprus did amazingly well in a number of other subject areas, which put us dead last in 17 of 34 subject areas. 9 of the 13 countries which scored lower than us at the 8th grade level also didn't participate in the 12th grade tests, but 3 of the 4 remaining countries scored much higher in some subjects than we did. Lithuania scored 23 points lower than us at the 8th grade level, but their 12th graders scored 100 points higher in geomety, Cyprus scored 26 points lower at the 8th grade level, but their 12th graders scored 99 points higher in calculus, and Iceland scored 13 points lower than us at the 8th grade level, but their 12th graders scored 73 points higher in general math.

How could this have happened? How could we spend almost twice as much as a percent of GDP than countries like Japan and Korea, where they score at the top of the curve and we score consistently at the bottom?

It's not certain that our 12th graders are less competent in math than our 8th graders. But it is guaranteed that on a relative scale our 12th graders are being grossly shortchanged, because far too many other countries have proven scientifically that they know how to educate high schoolers where we don't. This is such a huge swing that it's hard to imagine that something sinister isn't going on. Maybe it's that the students who don't make it through high school to the 12th grade (which is almost a THIRD of our 18 year olds) are the ones who would have scored the highest on the 12th grade TIMSS, and thus raised our scores to at least a ranking similar to that at the 8th grade. Maybe it's widespread prescription of drugs like Ritalin and Valium which dumbs down our students. Maybe it's steroids in the beef or estrogen in the water. Maybe it's TV programming (not just TV, but the lack of quality of our TV programming).

Or maybe it's just plain flat out incompetent teachers. We need to test them asap so that we KNOW for sure.
