>Nobel Prize-winning American scientist James Watson—who, with his partner Francis Crick, identified the double-helix structure of DNA—has been stripped of his honorary titles over racist comments in a PBS documentary that aired earlier this month.

>Watson previously made anti-black comments to Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper in 2007, and claimed that genetics cause a difference in intelligence between black people and white people, a common talking point among white supremacist figures and groups.

>Can someone please explain to me how racial intelligence differences are "unscientific?"
Modern leftish philosophers tend to dismiss reason, science, objective reality and to insist that everything is culturally relative. It is true that one can ask serious questions about the foundations of scientific knowledge and about how, if at all, the concept of objective reality can be defined. But it is obvious that modern leftish philosophers are not simply cool-headed logicians systematically analyzing the foundations of knowledge. They are deeply involved emotionally in their attack on truth and reality. They attack these concepts because of their own psychological needs. For one thing, their attack is an outlet for hostility, and, to the extent that it is successful, it satisfies the drive for power. More importantly, the leftist hates science and rationality because they classify certain beliefs as true (i.e., successful, superior) and other beliefs as false (i.e., failed, inferior). The leftist’s feelings of inferiority run so deep that he cannot tolerate any classification of some things as successful or superior and other things as failed or inferior. This also underlies the rejection by many leftists of the concept of mental illness and of the utility of IQ tests. Leftists are antagonistic to genetic explanations of human abilities or behavior because such explanations tend to make some persons appear superior or inferior to others. Leftists prefer to give society the credit or blame for an individual’s ability or lack of it. Thus if a person is “inferior” it is not his fault, but society’s, because he has not been brought up properly.

It's certainly the same thing, clearly genetics plays a role in the overall intelligence of a given species.

There's also groups of dogs who are smarter on average than other groups of dogs.

"The border collie is perhaps the smartest of all dogs. If most dogs have the intelligence of the average two-year-old, then a border collie might be as smart as a four-year-old"

Of course I don't know what causes the disparity between the lowest IQ countries(African/Pigmy's) and Highest(Asian) through history.

We can also look at "American Blacks" Vs Those native to Africa and see a difference, access to education likely has some effect on IQ in that regard, as not enough genetic mixing likely happened in just 300 years between Europeans and their slaves/former slaves.

>> No.10296710

>What’s the role they play?
The same role they play in everything behavioral. They code for proteins. Somehow, increased production of this or that protein leads to behavioral differences (e.g. due to more of some hormone, less of some neurotransmitter, a different brain architecture, a different metabolism.... who knows.)
>Is it purely genetic?
No. Plenty of environmental differences have been shown to impact IQ, and these environmental differences can correlate with (racial) groups.
>Can scores change in a population over time?
Yes. A population's environment and genes can both change over time, and IQ is a function of genes and environment, so it stands to reason that IQ can also change over time.
>Why should we even care about IQ scores?
They correlate with a lot of other stuff that people are interested in, e.g. income.
Also, this argument of "IQ doesn't matter" doesn't really work for the hard racial egalitarians who claim no cognitive differences between the races. If I find a (statistical) cognitive difference between the races, and you say "but that difference is not interesting to me", well, it's still a difference, and it still falsifies your hypothesis.

That begs the question of why africa itself hasn't produced the most scientific progress? Past like the iron age? No "Wakanda"?

If it's due to a culture that doesn't have an interest in science, you'd then have to ask why it doesn't have an interest in such things? Were the warlords/dictators holding things back too much, or were they simply too short sighted to see the benefits of not murdering each other all the time?

Of course Europeans/Asians as well murdered each other a whole lot too, but they did so with increasingly powerful weapons of physics/engineering.

You can look to clashes of British Soldiers and Tribesmen who were still using leather shields and spears.

The progress of technology may require higher average IQs in a population to explode like it has otherwise it may have taken much longer, which may explain why africa never had such a revolution in more modern times.

History of science is still science... also, there's not actually anything wrong with measuring skulls. Gould's claims about Morton's skulls have been debunked.
>In a 1981 book, “The Mismeasure of Man,” the paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould asserted that Morton, believing that brain size was a measure of intelligence, had subconsciously manipulated the brain volumes of European, Asian and African skulls to favor his bias that Europeans had larger brains and Africans smaller ones.
>But now physical anthropologists at the University of Pennsylvania, which owns Morton’s collection, have remeasured the skulls, and in an article that does little to burnish Dr. Gould’s reputation as a scholar, they conclude that almost every detail of his analysis is wrong.
>“Our results resolve this historical controversy, demonstrating that Morton did not manipulate his data to support his preconceptions, contra Gould,” they write in the current PLoS Biology.

>Based on 37 samples across 1530 people, the population correlation was estimated at 0.33. The
correlation is higher for females than males...For all age and sex groups, it is clear that brain volume is positively correlated with intelligence.

No, the question was do you believe working dogs are intellectually on par with mutant retard breeds like Bulldogs. You ignored what I said twice.
>Do you think humans were subjected to strong selection pressures for cognitive function and faculties in the last 10,000 years?
Yes. Higher intelligence correlates with higher levels of technological development, the one follows the other causally, 150 iq people invent new technology, 90 iq people steal and destroy technology and 70 iq people raid technologically advanced settlements. Some environments don’t select for higher intelligence, for instance the brone age steppe versus the bronze age levant of the Iron Age Serengeti versus the iron age Apennine peninsula. Geographic isolation, differing sexual selection preferences, different environmental selection pressures, different ecologies cause differences in allele frequency and gene-culture evolution and yield markedly different populations and cognitive profiles. The genetic distance between HG’s in Africa and Papua New Guinea are as big as those between different species of whales. Humans are not identical, there is absolutely no question that the genetic makeup of isolated differentially breeding populations will wildly different phenotypes and subsistence patterns will be different!

The average iq in the UK is 100 which is ~0-2 pts +/- from Italy while being very close economically. British overachievement is very likely a slight boost from cultural differences, geographic immurement from invasion and occulted iq disparity during the Victorian period which is conjectured to have been quite vast.

I didn’t actually acknowledge other factors, I said that the population size of a country would have an effect on its per capita production of this or that niche consumer product or cultural product. If you look at h-index rankings it looks very much like an iq ranking list, though a bit out of order, with Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore much higher than larger dumber countries but still sig lower than bigger and older nations which have been prosperous for longer. If you remove arab states and tax havens from a gdp per capita list it also looks like an iq ranking.

Environment matters but far less than genetics, with most environment really being masked indirect genetic influence from parents and the rest being random environmental factors that cannot be controlled at all by social policies. By adulthood iq is .8 genetics and basically set in stone, in childhood if you combine genetics and family influence its around .56-.7 and genetic influence of some type. The effect of biology always outweighs environment unless some extremely disruptive selection event happens like a natural disaster or disease pandemic or extreme warfare that wipes out most of the population, something like Tang dynasty genociding a whole turkic tribe in a few years or the invasion of a new species capable of totally outcompeting you for your food resources.

There is no contradiction, you jumped from arguing that Italy had a low iq, which it doesn’t (nordicist insecurity), to attacking citations which is retarded because most citations are nonsense corrupt makework in places like Turkey, Brazil, China, and then you jumped to singapore when they brought up the h-index which shows Italy very strongly ranked corresponding with its high iq. I explained to you singapore has a miniscule population, most of the country is involved in finance and tech not biomedical research or engineering. Italy can actually afford to put a large number of people to work in pure STEM

That’s not what I said, in the context of a positive selection pressure heritability implies genetic influence, its literally part of the equation used to delineate how fast a trait will proliferate in a population.

If we’re speaking about g, then yes it does imply that blacks are inferior because they display lower g as a population than whites and thus likely have lower allele frequency for the alleles responsible for high g which means there is a differential in the selection pressure for that trait between environments.

Positive selection and high heritability guarantees that barring extreme disruptive selection or genetic drift there will be a proliferation of that trait and if there is a differential in selection pressures between two populations then there will also be a differential in allele frequency, genotypes and phenotypes over time, in larger populations the pressures can be much weaker to produce the same effects. Its the complete opposite of what you’re stating, no one thinks you can directly account for all genes, all proteins, all genotype>phenotype causation but you don’t need to to predict differentials in phenotypes between populations or allele frequency. Blacks demonstrate lower g, less frequent conscientiousness, thus one can reverse engineer why that might be the case if we know the heritability and can divine the selection pressures in their environment. Think about it abstractly not moralistically for a moment.

>If we’re speaking about g, then yes it does imply that blacks are inferior because they display lower g as a population than whites and thus likely have lower allele frequency for the alleles responsible for high g which means there is a differential in the selection pressure for that trait between environments.

You dont know at all what youre talking about. Heritability does not in an absolute sense imply better positive allele frequency. Source:
>Heritability describes ‘what is’ in a population – it does not predict what could be or prescribe what should be in that population or any other. It should also be emphasized that heritability does not refer to a single individual but rather to individual differences in a particular population at a particular time with its particular mix of genetic and environmental effects. Most importantly, heritability does not imply immutability (Plomin et al., 2013)

You completely ignored what I said, Im not talking about just heritability im talking about heritability and its relationship with selection differentials, if there is a high heritability for a trait and if there is any directional selection at all, it effects the fucking allele frequencies, with big populations not subject to gene flow or genetic drift beginning to concentrate previously rare genotypes and certain high heritability highly selected for or against phenos overtaking others. This is extremely basic logic, im not at all invoking gnostic ability to know exact protein-gene-pheno relationships because it is not necessary at all to know how allele frequency will change. That’s the point im making.

You can then look at highly correlated behavioral traits like g and vocabulary or g and technological proficiency and analyze these for genetic effects which people like plomin have done, if they are high in addition to these other variables then you know for a fact that those traits are definitely genetically influenced to a large degree.

You can reverse engineer selection events, environment, ecology and evolutionary dynamics from gene frequencies and expressed phenos, its part of theoretic biology and is as important as empirical observations are. Evolutionary Theory is necessarily a mixture of deduction and induction and of speculation and observation. What I do not appreciate is the total pretension to ignorance of people who admit it must have a genetic component but tacitly mean to imply that this is identical, always under neutral selection and not really important beyond looking for rare anomalous mutations that cause disease.

Thank you for doing so, and clearing up any ambiguity.

>> No.10297236

What he cleaverly left out was that while you can reverse engineer some information from gene frequencies (i.e. allele frequencies) heritability does not imply allele frequency. So his argumenet about blacks being inferior still falls flat. See >>10297211 image for further explanation why this is the case.

Both expressed in individuals and present in the population.
Thats whats race “realists” never mention. IQ studies measure heritability, not gene frequency; which is why their claims that the science is being ‘repressed’ are lies. It’s not that they are being repressed, it’s that they claim there is a link between two separate things.

>> No.10297307

I also just found this interesting article:
Heritability Is Not Necessarily Constant

Interestingly, heritabilities are not constant. For example, estimates of heritability for first lactation milk yield in dairy cattle nearly doubled from approximately 25% in the 1970s to roughly 40% in recent times. Heritability can change over time because the variance in genetic values can change, the variation due to environmental factors can change, or the correlation between genes and environment can change. Genetic variance can change if allele frequencies change (e.g., due to selection or inbreeding), if new variants come into the population (e.g., by migration or mutation), or if existing variants only contribute to genetic variance following a change in genetic background or the environment. The same trait measured over an individual's lifetime may have different genetic and environmental effects influencing it, such that the variances become a function of age. For example, variance in weight at birth is influenced by maternal uterine environment, and variance in weight at weaning depends on maternal milk production, but variance of mature adult weight is unlikely to be influenced by maternal factors, which themselves have both a genetic and environmental component. Heritabilities may be manipulated by changing the variance contributed by the environment. Empirical evidence for morphometric traits suggests lower heritabilities in poorer environments, but not for traits more closely related to fitness (Charmantier & Garant, 2005). Understanding how heritability changes with environmental stressors is important for understanding evolutionary forces in natural populations (Charmantier & Garant, 2005).
So no, you're 100% right about allele frequency.

Just because race is socially constructed doesn't mean that it lacks any biological or psychometric meaning.

By way of analogy, color is socially constructed. (Not skin color, I mean like "red", "orange", and so on.) The electromagnetic spectrum is a physical reality, but the divisions we draw on it to distinguish between different visible frequencies are arbitrary. Colors, just like races, vary by culture: some cultures consider "orange" to just be a more yellowish shade of red. Some cultures consider "light blue" and "dark blue" to be two completely different colors. But despite the social constructedness of color, we can still use it to make meaningful distinctions in the world. We can call something "red", and that statement can be true or false, objectively. We can notice correlations with color as well, for example we can notice the temperatures at which stars of various peak colors burn.

In the same way, correlations between race and psychometric properties such as IQ are not undermined by the observation that race is socially constructed. Race is a social construct, but it is based (in part) on the biological reality of ancestry, and statistically correlates with certain traits.

But it's genetic basis is too tenuous for rigorous discussion.
Think about the genetic variation between a "White" Briton, and a "White" Romanian.
Trying to compare them as being the same is just absurd.

>> No.10297383

I don't think it's that absurd. Is trying to compare "red" and "orange" as being the same equally absurd? It depends on how much variance in elements of a socially constructed set bothers you. Red and orange are closer to each other in frequency than blue is to either of them. Britons and Romanians are closer to each other genetically than blacks are to either of them.

>> No.10297384

Yes, that's exactly the article's point:
>When we looked in more detail, we found that this region contained at least seven independent risk factors for prostate cancer, all more common in West Africans. Our findings could fully account for the higher rate of prostate cancer in African-Americans than in European-Americans. We could conclude this because African-Americans who happen to have entirely European ancestry in this small section of their genomes had about the same risk for prostate cancer as random Europeans.

>Did this research rely on terms like “African-American” and “European-American” that are socially constructed, and did it label segments of the genome as being probably “West African” or “European” in origin? Yes. Did this research identify real risk factors for disease that differ in frequency across those populations, leading to discoveries with the potential to improve health and save lives? Yes.

Extending the color analogy: sure, it might be pointless to compare "aqua" and "turquoise", but comparing red and blue may yield valuable results (see above)
