IQ means squat as far as I'm concerned.  How do you explain people with a very "low" IQ" who are capable of performing mental tasks without the aid of a calculator - beyond the capability of anyone with a "normal" IQ.

the dark side

I've read the "Satanic Bible" by Anton Levay. I've also read "The Necronomicon" - originally written, in the 8th century, by the "Mad Arab" Abdul Alhazred, it is the Book of the Dead, the Book of the Black Earth (so the claim goes).

possibilities of life elsewhere. In the book "The 12th planet", Zecharia Sitchin, proposes that humans are descendents of the Nefilim - a superior race from Marduk, the 12th planet.

quantum mechanics

I read an interesting book by Sheldon Glashow: "Interactions". This follows his career in quantum mechanics. Everything you ever wanted to know about: gluons, quarks, electromagnetic properties, various laws of physics - but were afraid to ask.  I read this for fun :)
