Okay, I know this isn’t a serious study, but I thought it was kind of funny. A student at Cal Tech decided to plot the ten most popular books at a given University (according to Facebook) on a graph with the University’s average SAT/ACT score. The study is here. (Hat tip to Friendly Atheist.)
Go have a look — it’s quite amusing to see where all of the different books fall on the SAT spectrum!
The researcher himself notes (in the FAQ):
The smartest religious book is “The Book of Mormon”. The dumbest religious book is “The Holy Bible”. I’m sure this pleases the Mormons immensely.
The thing that surprises me the most is how high up “Atlas Shrugged” falls…
