Chris Langan: The World’s Smartest Man?

chris langan (part 1)

I found this video on YouTube and have to say it is very interesting.  Langan has one of the highest IQ’s of anyone ever measured, one which even exceeds Einstein’s.  Ironically he worked as a bouncer in Long Island and when you see the video you can understand why he may have chosen that as his career.  His story very much reminds me of Good Will Hunting, a movie about a genious who decides to be a janitor and cosntruction worker despite his intelligence.  You can watch part two and part three of the video but for some reason I found those videos to be a bit disturbing because he starts to compare himself to God and discusses people’s right to breed (woah you are taking things a little too far in my opinion).  I mean yeah I have heard people joke that some couples in the world shouldn’t have children but where do you draw the line and who are we to say they can’t?  I understand his theories about keeping “mutations” out of the gene pool but it got a little Hitlerish for me and lost interest and frankly some respect for him.  If you watch all three videos let me know what you think, maybe I am missing the point (I’m no genius).  Interesting stuff, hope you enjoy the video.
