Response to I scored 160 on the SB a very long time ago...

...as it's reflected in the archaeological record (e.g., evidence of art, technology and ritual) implies language and intelligence appeared long (i.e., by more than 100,000 years) after the fossil record shows anatomically modern human brains evolved.

I'm not sure what this means, but it seems to imply that intelligence as measured by ability to do linear thinking involves more than what's carried in our genome -- as if it's learned early in life.

Those "twins" experiments notwithstanding.
