10 Extraordinary people of the world. (Part 1 0f 10)

Today I received another interesting email. I shall share with you, in 10 parts. You may have come across this before. In my opinion, people are not born equal in intelligence, despite many claim it to be. If we are all as intelligent, then all of us will be the same. No one will be smarter or more stupid than us. Most of us are just average normal humans.

This is part 1:

[Kim Ung-Yong: Attended University at age 4, Ph.D at age 15; has the world’s highest IQ!

This Korean super-genius was born in 1962 and might just be the smartest guy alive today (he’s recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as having the highest IQ of anyone on the planet).

By the age of four he was already able to read in Japanese, Korean, German, and English. At his fifth birthday, he solved complicated differential and integral calculus problems. Later, on Japanese television, he demonstrated his proficiency in Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese, Tagalog, German, English, Japanese, and Korean. Kim was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records under “Highest IQ”; the book estimated the boy’s score at over 210.

Kim was a guest student of physics at Hanyang University from the age of 3 until he was 6. At the age of 7 he was invited to America by NASA. He finished his university studies, eventually getting a Ph.D. in physics at Colorado State University before he was 15. In 1974, during his university studies, he began his research work at NASA and continued this work until his return to Korea in 1978 where he decided to switch from physics to civil engineering and eventually received a doctorate in that field.

Kim was offered the chance to study at the most prestigious universities in Korea, but instead chose to attend a provincial university. As of 2007 he also serves as adjunct faculty at Chungbuk National University.]

Well don't ask me what is "adjunct faculty". I am not smart enough to know what it is. I suppose if he tries anything he will be on top.

People are not born equal in intelligence.

Have a nice day.

"We are not made equal".

Sometime ago, I was the only one commenting on "We are not made equal".

How can I miss this post then, hahaha.

Some stubborn fellas say all things in the universe are created by God. If indeed this is true, then why are we not as smart, or as stupid, or as rich, or as poor, or.....

These stubborn fellas' God must be very unfair then.

What we are now are the cumulative of our past deeds in previous life. Prince Siddhartha enlightened as Buddha were due to his past deeds as well. These stubborn fellas think anyone can easily get "enlightenment". They actually don't understand what is enlightenment...
