Funny how those criteria don't match up with the ACTUAL definition of intelligence from expert psychologistis and neurologists:

I think Jesus fails on your points 6, 10, 11, (12 would be tautological), 13, 14, 16 (we have nothing written by him), 17 (getting himself arrested by the Romans). And that's being generous.

Pupils Name: God

ENGLISH:
(11%) Poor, handwriting weak.

FRENCH :
(9%) Very poor.

GEOGRAPHY:
(30%) Suprisingly poor. His knowledge appears somewhat dated. Interesting ideas about rock formation; keeps going around going Kerpow!

BIOLOGY :
(28%) Weak, thinks he know it all. Constantly rude about Darwin

DIVINITY:
(14%) Poor, keeps disputing Biblical facts on the ground that he was "misquoted"

LATIN :
(100%) Quite the best student I've ever had

WOODWORK :
(87%) An excellent carpenter. Mary and I are still very fond of him

DOMESTIC SCIENCE
(54%) A useful little cook, the pillar of salt will come in handy for a long time.

ART
(62%) Very creative, however he does keep claiming to have created everything, including myself, Mr Vidler and the organist.

GAMES:
Will not row, hates games and once parted the waters of the swimming pool during a match against the old boys which was both unsporting and dangerous. He can still do press ups.

PROGRESS AND CONDUCT:
I am afraid that I am severely disappointed in God's work. All three of him have shown no tendency to improve and He merely sits at the back of the class talking to Himselves. He has shown no interest in rugger, asked to be excused prayers and moves in a mysterious way.
What is more his omniprescence is beginning to cause some embarrasment in big school, since he is continually out of bounds and at the same time always in matron's bed.

Finally, his attentions to the carpentry masters fiancee caused her to leave a term early and there are several nasty rumours flying around.

HOUSEMASTERS REMARKS:
I am very sorry to be losing God's ability and friendliness from the house. We will never forget how he made the Model Railway Club layout in six days! It seems unlikely that he will now get into Oxford or Cambridge but I could recommend Him for a job at Unilever.

I think that you will find that in terms of pure intellect Isaac Newton comes tops.

RRR: So if Jesus were the "most educated and Intelligent Man who ever walked the earth", why did he not leave a single writing? Not a word about his philosophy, not a prophetic word about the future, not a shopping list, not a letter home, nothing. The silence is deafening.

This is a guy who yelled at fig trees (Mark 11:14), told people to gouge out their eyeballs if they got horny (Matthew 5:29), hate your parents (Luke 14:26), and give away all your money (Matthew 19:21). Sorry, but I don't think he gets the blue ribbon for education and intelligence.

He left all that

your complaint is that He spoke it instead of writing it down Himself

Was he actually a man? Buddha seems pretty enlightened too, in what ways did Jesus surpass Buddha's education or intelligence?

Where does the bible indicate that those quotes were not meant to be taken literally?

This thread is turning into "throw a name into a hat". Pointless!

The thread was pointless to begin with.

"These quotes were never meant to be taken literally. They're metaphors."

Metaphors for what?

People would have found someone else to build a religion around, and today nothing would be much different.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 18, 2012 6:23:17 AM PDT
Wow, twenty ways to make sure a person believes in Jesus. I will make posters of them and plaster them around grammar schools.

Re OP: "the most educated and Intelligent Man who ever walked the earth." This about a man who was so stupid as to curse a fig tree for lack of fruit when it was not the season for it to HAVE fruit.
