Gordon: TODAY THE

WORLD IS MOVING AT AN

UNPRECEDENTED PACE.

NEVER BEFORE HAS THE PLANET

BEEN SO CROWDED WITH PEOPLE

RUNNING TO AND FRO AS DANIEL

PROPHECIZED.

HERE IN AMERICA, PEOPLE

SPEND 100 HOURS A YEAR JUST

GETTING TO WORK.

AND THEY WORK FOUR TIMES

MORE THAN THEY DID JUST 50

YEARS AGO.

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD ARE

BUSIER THAN EVER.

AND STUDIES SHOW THAT OUR

BRAINS ARE DOING A GREAT JOB

KEEPING UP WITH OUR

SCHEDULES.

THE SECOND PART OF DANIEL

DANIEL'S PROPHECY SAYS IN

THE END TIMES, KNOWLEDGE

SHALL INCREASE.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR

KNOWLEDGE IMPLIES

PERCEPTION, SKILL,

DISCERNMENT, AND WISDOM.

IN THIS GENERATION, THAT

PROPHECY IS COMING TRUE.

IN THE LAST 100 YEARS,

TECHNOLOGY HAS ADVANCED

FURTHER THAN IN ALL OF THE

PREVIOUS CENTURIES

COMBINED.

WITH SATELLITES AND CELL

PHONES, AIR AND SPACE

TRAVEL, AND TV AND THE

INTERNET TO NAME JUST A

FEW.

WE'VE ALSO SEEN

UNPARALLELLED AD VABSZ

ADVANCES IN MEDICINE:

VACCINES, ANTIBIOTICS, AND

TRANSPLANTS.

WE'VE EVEN UNLOCKED GENETIC

CODE.

SCIENTISTS HAVE TAKEN THEIR

SKILLS TO A WHOLE NEW

LEVEL.

BUT THEY'RE NOT THE ONLY

ONES.

ACCORDINATHE I.Q. TEST

POINTS HAVE INCREASED EVERY

DECADE.

A PHENOMENON KNOWN AS THE

FLINT TEST.

SOMEONE WHO TOOK AN I.Q.

TEST AND SCORED IN THE TOP

5% WOULD RANK IN THE BECOME

5% TODAY.

THE SAME WAS TRUE IN 20

OTHER COUNTRIES.

AND IT IS NOT JUST THE

STUDENTS AT THE BOTTOM OF

THE CLASS WHO ARE

IMPROVING.

FLINT'S STUDY THOSE THAT THE

SMARTEST 5% OF PEOPLE ARE

GETTING EVEN SMARTER.

SO WHAT IS BEHIND THE GLOBAL

INCREASE IN KNOWLEDGE?

SOME SAY IT IS BECAUSE

TODAY'S CHILDREN HAVE BETTER

NUTRITION, EDUCATION, AND

MEDICAL CARE.

KIDS TO BE BETTER

PROBLEM-SOLVERS.

NO MATTER WHAT THE REASON

ARE WE'RE SEEING THE

FULFILLMENT OF WHAT DANIEL

PROPHECIZED MORE THAN 2500

YEARS AGO.

AFTER DECADES OF RESEARCH,

EVEN FLINT HIMSELF WAS

PUZZLED BY THE STEADY RISE

OF THE HUMAN I.Q.

HERE IS HOW HE EXPLAINED IT:

"IT'S AS IF SOME UNSEEN HAND

IS PROPELLING THE SCORES UPWARD."
