Violets are Blue. Babies are Stupid
And so are you. (sorry, just had to do that.)
Babies are Stupid?
They lie around all day, getting fed when they are hungry, playing with toys, having people coo over them. Heck, they don’t even have to go to the bathroom. And this is stupid?
If you think Babies are Stupid…
You are not alone.
There are actually multiple tests for measuring how intelligent babies are, strange as it may seem. You would think that for people who can’t talk, can’t walk, and can’t even point effectively, it would be very difficult to measure what’s going on inside their head.
But you’d be wrong. Scientists use things like watching where the babies’ eye tracks to see what they are thinking about. (Even though the vision of a baby is very poor — out of focus — eye movement is the first external thing to develop.)
The more you know about babies, the more you will realize that “Babies are Stupid” may be funny, but it’s not a correct statement at all!
