But Do They Worship Allah?

Slashdot linked up this Aljazeera article (no, really!) detailing new research which purports to prove that dolphins are nowhere near as smart as we think they are:

Dolphins may have big brains, but a South African-based scientist says laboratory rats and even goldfish can outwit them.

Paul Manger of Johannesburg's University of the Witwatersrand says the super-sized brains of dolphins are a function of being warm-blooded in a cold water environment and not a sign of intelligence.

Sort of like cats, but with fins.
