eritability doesn't think what you think it means.
Excerpt:
>Misconceptions of the Heritability Concept
>There are a number of common misconceptions on the exact meaning and interpretation of heritability (Visscher et. al., 2008). Heritability is not the proportion of a phenotype that is genetic, but rather the proportion of phenotypic variance that is due to genetic factors. Heritability is a population parameter and, therefore, it depends on population-specific factors, such as allele frequencies, the effects of gene variants, and variation due to environmental factors. It does not necessarily predict the value of heritability in other populations (or other species). Nevertheless, it is surprising how constant heritabilities are across populations and species (Visscher et. al., 2008).

>I'm still waiting for a link to the large-sample study with reliable sampling methodology which shows IQ is within 5 points between nations. How much longer will it be?
See:
>Your thesis is not your dissertation. Neither is it a one liner about what you are doing. Your thesis is "a position or proposition that a person (as a candidate for scholastic honors) advances and offers to maintain by argument." [Webster's 7th New Collegiate Dictionary]. "I looked at how people play chess" is not a thesis; " people adapt memories of old games to play new games" is. Similarly, "I wrote a program to play chess" is not a thesis; "playing chess requires a database of actual games" is. A thesis has to claim something.
>A defense presents evidence for a thesis. What kind of evidence is apprpropriate depends on what kind of thesis is being defended.
Read:
>https://www.cc.gatech.edu/faculty/ashwin/wisdom/what-is-a-thesis-defense.html
It's up to you to defend your own thesis, I have defended mine. Defend yours, idiot.

>And there go the ad hominem attacks, that didn't take long did it
Wrong again, dumb dumb. An ad hom is a personal attack, without addressing the argument, I've done both. So, it is just an insult.

>I showed you my evidence. You said it's discredited by a bunch of opinions, I say I don't give a fuck about opinions. I want data. Do you have any or not?
Fun fact, those aren't opinions because those are facts that were errors in Lynn's methology, admitted by Lynn himself.
Shows what you know, idiot.

Also, for a fun little add on. IQ tests are also culture unfair, which is why you would need to make an IQ tests for each culture, and wouldn't be fair when aggregating the data, as they'd be from different tests (which I sort of what Lynn did, but used an unfair test, in an unfair way, with poor methodology).

Come on you shill cuck, stop with this ideological and (((intellectual))) (((usury))).
