I'm always curious when people say they have a high IQ since the average has to be 100 and I have yet to hear anyone say theirs is under 120. Not really relevant to what you're saying, but it is curious nonetheless.

I question whether guys  like Steven Hawkings spend much time on  message boards.  And, I'll repeat, my iPhone has no spellcheck  function. As for my intelligence, I was told fits into the superior  range based on an IQ test. I only bring that up because you wanted to  challenge it.

In my experience, someone who is truly intelligent also has decent spelling

the internet enough to know what "trolling" means, and to avoid  behavior
that gets them labeled as a troll.

But that's just my experience.

I'm sorry it has come down to this. I used to have a pretty critical
attitude about spelling and grammar, 'til I figured out that it  didn't have
anything to do with intelligence or whatever. I still haven't  figured it out
to my satisfaction, but suffice it to say that we are all different,  we are
all good or bad at different things, and when I saw myself deriding people
to whom grammar and spelling aren't so important, I started noticing that
they were "better" about other things, things which they very well  may be
deriding me for (and yes, I do know that last is not proper English).

Whatever the argument was here (I am completely ignoring it for the moment),
it has nothing to do with spelling and grammar.

Now if Rush Limbaugh is a bad speller, I would just add that to my invective
;+)

I wasn't even counting your incorrect use of 'your' and misspelling of
'evidance', not even when you misquote your "deliberate misspelling"  in your
first reply.  It wouldn't matter to me usually, but it makes you  look doubly
unintelligent when you take a group of people whose moral behavior  can't be
generalized--doctors--and not only try to assert that they all act according
to some arbitrary standard of behavior (which you alone decided  without
presenting any evidence), but you can't even express yourself accurately.
To me, your inattention to spelling and grammar only emphasizes your lazy
thinking.

And it's "atheist".

Remember the "burden of proof" idea should extend to all logical  ideas and
allowing excessive emotion or former slights enter your analysis  tend cloud
your judgment.

Wow, so much for calling athiests brights. It was a play on words.
Hypocritical and hippocratic = hipocratical.  How was my grammar,
punctuation, and spelling?

I wouldn't worry about it (religious affiliated hospitals); I have a couple

occasionally some doctor's may use religion when talking to a  relative about
someone who's just passed, i.e. "He/She is in a better place now, but
sometimes even non-religious doctors do this if they think it will  make
things hurt less...  I've said it when I knew the person I was  talking too

I doubt it really effects the quality of care you get in Austin  though.

Now would I go to a Mormon hospital in Utah and admit I was  agnostic....
No...  but in Austin I am not really concerned....
