    If they were really smarter they would be far more flexible to all ideas and postions and far less dogmatic and stubborn then they often display.

    Ergo, the study is false.

    Funny, I don't find them "smarter" at all.
    I do find them to be the MOST hateful though.

    You are AMAZINGLY stupid as is this study. It is also a scientific fact that the MAJORITY of young adults are Liberal because they have not lived life yet and learned liberalism does not work.

    You remember the saying " If a young person is not liberal they have no heart, if a 30 year old is not conservative they have no brains."

    The tests are clearly biased and the results cannot be used to draw any generalized conclusions about the relative intelligence of different segments of the population.

    Just like past results that suggested white people are smarter than black people.

    I mean, how silly is that?
