Let's face it. One can become anything truly. But it would take huge environmental supports, training, will, effort and maybe pain. Example here would be the ancient Chinese custom of foot binding to create tiny tiny feet.
But on the issue of intelligence. It is real as in "knowing enough to come in out of the rain, not to mention lightning or a hurricane" yet there are many kinds of abilities that support a good and happy existence for self and others. It would appear that some of us don't have the ability to really understand calculus and physics. That doesn't mean we shouldn't be cognizant and grateful for those who do and not diminish and say that they aren't any smarter than the rest of us for they are. Let's don't let political correctness change that.
