Glenn, this just isn't true. There is a direct correlation between
intelligence and brain size. Humans are born with soft skulls which
allow for bigger and more complex brains than are found in our primate
cousins born with hard skull casings.

You are using individual examples to make a general conclusion. I am
five feet eleven inches high, and can't dunk a basketball. Yet I have
seen basketballs dunked by players only five feet seven. Can I conclude
there is no relationship between physical height and the ability to
dunk a basketball?
