    "With great intelligence comes great responsiblity."
    Does any one know who quoted that first?
    Does any agree with the general premise,as I do?

    (My definition of 'intelligence' is a bit different to the standard textbook definition, but it does (generally) INCLUDE the textbooks definition. My version prolly just adds to it and makes some slight changes here and there. )

    (Also there is "general intelligence",(or common sense) as well as "hard intelligence" whichs requires a lot of effort for some,(and not for others for some reason...hmmmmm), not to mention all the others in between like "specification"-or whatever you call it when you specialize in something. )

    (in the interests of clarity ,feel free to help me here with my definitons or meanings)

    I know intelligent people refrain from using "prolly" instead of probably. Probably.

    good point. In keeping with the language changing (in this case, words getting shortened), I reckon we will see 'prolly' replace 'probably'.
    In my book it is intelligent to simplify the language (where appropriate), for better communication.(in this case one less syllable EVERY time you say "probably"😉.

    So much talk and banter/so lttle action at times.

    I never heard of such a quote. Maybe you mean, "With great power comes
    great responsibility." This is similar to what Jesus said, "To whom much has
    been given, much will be expected."

    I think I do agree. It agrees somewhat with the Jesus quote and I
    think Jesus knew what he was talking about.

    Geez. Talk about a wishy washy answer.

    Jesus said something close.

    "Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more." Luke 12:48

    Christian executives often pull this verse out of their pocket when someone who makes a good salary complains of being overworked.

    Anyway, from a Christian, spiritual perspective, the same applies to those who have great intelligence. Great intelligence, considered a gift from the Creator, is entrusted to those whom--as the Creator likewise expects--will use the gift responsibly.

    And the democrats were always saying how dumb he was.

    P.S. He was replaced by Obama, a great intellect from Harvard University.

    Yes but are they directly related (as I am claiming) or can you pick and choose?

    (I had put a similar question about intelligence (Is it intelligent to worship god?, or something like that) to where jaywill,if I remember correctly said "yes".
    Because to me it seems counterintuitive for an athiest to think that belief in god is more"intelligent" than scientific process)

    i just object to the phrase "great responsibility."
    responsibility is responsibility. it doesn't change with greatness.
