this man BTFOs mensa underachievers and /pol/tard racial IQ troglodytes. because according to IQ tests, you are probably a GENIUS compared to your grandparents' generation, because IQ tests are BS

>If increasing literacy were really explaining a number of seemingly different IQ trends, then you would expect to see a few things. ... If all these predictions hold up, there would be support for the notion that secular IQ gains and race differences are not different phenomena but have a common origin in literacy.
>To test these predictions, Marks looked at samples representative of whole populations (rather than individuals), and used ecological methods to calculate statistical associations between IQ and literacy rates across different countries. Were Marks' findings consistent with the predictions?
>Strikingly, yes. He found that the higher the literacy rate of a population, the higher that population's mean IQ, and the higher that population's mean IQ, the higher the literacy rate of that population. When literacy rates declined, mean IQ also declined. Marks also found evidence for unequal improvements across the entire IQ spectrum: the greatest effects of increased literacy rates were on those in the lower half of the IQ distribution. Interestingly, he also found that both the Flynn Effect and racial/national IQ differences showed the largest effects of literacy on verbal tests of intelligence, with the perceptual tests of intelligence showing no consistent pattern.

tl;dr: IQ is a fucking meme

the point is not that actual intelligence goes up or down with time; rather, the point is that IQ tests are for sure a broken metric that don't really measure anything, it's more like a standardized test for whatever psychologist professors sitting in their offices think is real science, when in reality they are completely scientifically and statistically innumerate.

except the flynn effect shows it drifts dramatically over time, like 1-2 standard deviations per generation. so whatever it is you think it measures must be changing significantly at a generational level. and for sure "innate intelligence" / "g-factor" (i.e. bullshit words psychologists made up without any scientific basis) don't drift that rapidly with time. it for sure measures some meme crap, you know like some people are real good at sudoku but that doesn't mean they aren't fucking retarded at real life

The parts of the test that the Flynn effect contributes to are the least G-loaded. Flynn himself stated this. Flynn effect is basically measuring the fact that the IQ test is imperfect. In fact, by looking at reaction times from the 1800's compared to now, G has been decreasing over time. We've been losing 2 IQ points per decade since the Victorian era, but imperfect IQ measuring has been hiding it with the Flynn effect.

While I agree the gaps aren't soley environmental it cannot be ignored that Iodine deficiency/consumption alone can equate to a -12/+8 IQ point loss or gain during prenatal/early childhood nutrition.


It also can't be ignored that high cortisol levels brought by external stress can cause low/very low birth weight, behavior changes and lower IQ by 5 points in babies during pregnancy.

You see in many places they love to dick suck European languages. So much that they enact linguistic polices that make no sense and lead to worse educational outcomes. In many African states they don't use native languages at all, the minute you enter school you are dropped right into English or French. With no gradual bilingual or gradual shift so those kids have to tackle topics in a language they don't know how to speak and use terms they don't know in their mother tongue.

Studied Identital twins, same genes, but separated at birth. Most ended up in the same middle-class families, and ended up having similar IQ. In the few cases where the separated twins were put into differing social classes and education levels, there were huge disparities in IQ - in one case a 20 point gap; in another, 29 points (the difference between dullness and superior intelligence).

IQ has changed dramatically, projecting back 100 years, yet people have not changed genetically since then. Some populations are more exposed to abstract logic than others, which is why their average IQ scores differ. Thus any difference was environmental.

Carl Brigham, Princeton professor, "our figures would rather tend to disprove the popular belief that the Jew is highly intelligent." In WWII, the IQ was above average.

Among the rest of the jewish (as well as the chinese and blacks).
Jewish older generation IQ: 92.8 Younger generation: 101.3
Chinese: 97 in 1948 and 109.6 in 1990.
The gap between white and black Americans narrowed by 5.5 points between 1972 and 2002.
There cannot be any genetic explanation in a generation or two for this.

All people stereotype and make snap judgments, smart or not.

The difference is intelligent people are aware of the limitations of this kind of reasoning; they don't buy stereotypes based on hearsay or insufficient evidence, and they don't overuse them.
For example an intelligent person can rationally stereotype an Indian as a curry-eater since an overwhelming majority of Indians eat curry on a regular basis. But he won't stereotype a black as a violent criminal since <0.1% of blacks have violent crime convictions (according to BJS statistics).

The response is that it's not purely environmental, and they would be right.

>The Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study examined the IQ test scores of 130 black or interracial children adopted by advantaged white families. The aim of the study was to determine the contribution of environmental and genetic factors to the poor performance of black children on IQ tests as compared to white children. The initial study was published in 1976[1] by Sandra Scarr and Richard A. Weinberg. A follow-up study was published in 1992[2] by Richard Weinberg, Sandra Scarr and Irwin D. Waldman. Another related study investigating social adjustment in a subsample of the adopted black children was published in 1996. The study found that "(a) putative genetic racial differences do not account for a major portion of the IQ performance difference between racial groups, and (b) black and interracial children reared in the culture of the tests and the schools perform as well as other adopted children in similar families."

The problem is you're confusing simple structures vs complex structures.
It's perfectly clear that there are going to be people of different color, predispositions to diseases, and simple things like lactose tolerance. These are all simple structures of single gene mutations which can spread easily among any population.

However complex structures, like the brain, involve a multi-complex network of thousands of genes, which most likely takes 100 millennia to evolve appreciably.

Our "starting point", mitochondrial Eve, lived around 200,000 years ago. Since this is recent (evolutionarily speaking), human beings share a remarkably high proportion of their genes compared to other mammals. For example, chimpanzee's that live in central africa has significantly more genetic variation than does the entire human race.
Geneticists have long claimed that all human beings, regardless of race, share about 99 per cent of their functional genes. And this suggests that, despite obvious differences in how members of different races look, race is only skin deep.

I mean this statement is illogical, because they didn't have any economic prerequisites - they were poor and lived in isolated German ghettos. Which is the reason WHY they had so many kids. You increase the opportunity cost of having kids (i.e. become more productive), you will see fewer kids. If you decrease the opportunity cost of having kids (i.e. become less productive), you will see more kids. This is why rich families tend to have relatively less kids than poor families.
And it's been also said that the rapid "evolution" was possible because they were forbidden to marry outside of the Jewish community - which leads to the "don't cross-breed" /pol/ meme.
The claim was also made as a factor behind the disproportionate prevalence in Ashkenazi Jews of genetic diseases such as Tay-Sachs and Gaucher’s, which Pinker-bro et. all claimed were a byproduct of natural selection for higher intelligence.
Those carrying the gene variants, or alleles, for these diseases were said to be smarter than the rest.

DNA research by other scientists has shown that Ashkenazi Jews are far less genetically isolated than Pinker-bro's paper argued.
On the claims that Ashkenazi diseases were caused by rapid natural selection, further research has shown that they were caused by a random mutation.
There is no evidence that those carrying the gene variants for these diseases are any more or less intelligent than the rest of the community.
>There is no "intelligence" gene.

First of all they weren't poor, the Ashkenazi population was often wealthy in Germany. Second, the "rich families have less kids than poor" is only true today. Because mortality among children was very high, poor people had comparatively less children than rich and middle class. That is a recent development.

And as for the "Ashkenazi genetical purity/there is a single intelligence gene" thing, that's not part of my argument.

Wrong, there is nothing environmental about intelligence, its mostly genetics. Genetics is the framework, and you're denying the role of genetics so you can continue to preach your environmental determinism. You just don't flat out say that environment determines 100% of intelligence, but that's what your saying.

good job you IQ denying fuckwad. First sentence and you are already in disagreement with the majority of scientists. I mean, just listen to yourself. Genetics are responsible for 100% of the brain structure that facilitates cognition, behavior and personality. We KNOW that's true for animals, yet here you are saying, that all those genes are meaingless, and intelligence is some unquantifiable and magical dust

>it ends up being a rather old (and useless) debate between nature vs nurture.

There is no such thing as nature vs nurture. Its a non-existent dividing line that, again, modern research on the field doesn't preach. Let me demonstrate it with an easy example. Reading books to your child increases their verbal IQ, the problem, is that the environment that causes this, is because a person with certain genetic traits CHOOSES to create this environment for their child. So you cannot separate this "environmental effect" from genetics. Likewise, there is also the Wilson effect, the heritability of IQ increases with age. And one reason for this, is that as a person ages, the environment they choose becomes a reflection of the genetics that drives them to make such choices. It's like how you can force a child to read, and he may become a better reader, but he'll drop the book the moment the pressure is gone.

>doesn't lead to race to be predictive of intelligence.

>> No.10784250

No leftists shithead. If you're gonna deny science, you may as well deny IQ. You should also deny genetics, because leftists have a problem with the science of genetics because of the implications of inherited characteristics. Never forget that leftists developed the pseudoscience Lysenkoism and murdered a bunch of geneticists because they hate genetics.

Race science is alive and well too you dipshit, you do know that right? It just has a different name, its called population genetics and even the science of making predictions just from appearances is making a comeback, because, no shot phenotype would correlate with behavior, both are influenced by genetics! but its the descendants of all previous research on race, and may I add, provides the greatest proof for race being a valid taxonomical category.

Not that you need race to prove that racial equality is pseudoscience, black people are a legit threat to civilization because their genes cannot handle it, and that there are moral reasons to treat race differently. That's somethign the retarded left and the moronic narcissistic black poster doesn't really get, but they don't understand genetics, so they don't understand that all population genetics can make valid predictions about said population. Race is just a red herring we use on leftists to make sure they get distracted while we do our research. Once the truth gets out, the implications will be the same.

3) That intelligence, behavior and personality are built on a genetic framework

Then there is no reasoning with you. All of these points have been validated, and yet you far left anti-/pol/ fucks bring up your retarded politics, and think that's enough to validity your environmental determinism over genetic science. I'm not gonna listen to the people, who have murdered thousands of people thanks to this racial equality nonsense. It's even more mind bogglyingly when some of you actual admit that IQ is legit, but then say that "racial differences in IQ" is pseudoscience. Well dipshit, then how do you explain the findings of IQ that suggests there are racial differences that have been both consistent and heritable?

>There are no isolated genes which are tied to intelligence. The system is too complex. There are no neatly packaged intelligence genes.

Pure nonsense drivel that can only come from someone who doesn't even understand genetics. Well you anti /pol/ fucktards, why don't you just deny genes? I mean, what even is a gene? It's just a human social construct that we randomly assign to long segments of DNA. I mean, where does a gene for hair begin and end? HUR DUR HUR DUR

>And it's been also said that the rapid "evolution" was possible because they were forbidden to marry outside of the Jewish community - which leads to the "don't cross-breed" /pol/ meme.

This kinda highlights your inability to understand genetics. See, you realize that even if humans were near 100% genetically identical, then it would still be possible for populations of said human to show genetic differences in cognitive traits right? You do know why that would be possible right? You are aware that "genetic drift" makes it 100% impossible for populations to be genetically equal, right?

What's with that passive aggressive response you little bitch?

Leftists are so retarded that they actually think you can't make valid predictions from just a person genetics. Well dipshit, if that were true, how come polygenic scores are a thing, and they have been successfully implemented? You think intelligence is some impossible to quantify construct, when it's obviously just a biological output of a brain constructed by genetics and the processes that occur in it. That is why certain genetic disease will cause problems with intelligence, and why some genetic disorders, like William Syndrome, have been known to produce consistent behavioral changes, and the ONLY reason they behave differently is because of the loss of those 27 genes. That is not some super complex thing.

Let us some up far leftists stupidity:

1) The only reason why deny IQ and race and genetics, is because of your far left religion and your belief in racial equality pseudoscience. Anyone centrists, moderate, rational and sane will see there is a justifiable reason to believe there are cognitive differences between races. You force a standard on this research. Race and IQ is WAY more falsifiable then Dark Matter, but I don't see you far leftists screeching about how those "/pol/ babies support dark matter even though its not real, here are all the scientists that reject it!", because dark matter isn't heresy.
2) They don't understand genetics. The biggest proof is that they scream about the danger of the implications, yet for some reason, accept genetic principles because their too focused at people correctly saying blacks are stupid...but then they say population genetics is legit or that genetic drift or that IQ IS influenced by genetics is true. Well then if you accept that, you do realize that genetic drift means that its impossible for genetic equality to exist in population. You don't need race to prove that people from African genetics are behaviorally and cognitively unequal

3) It's wrong to call these racial equality pseduoscientists only race and IQ deniers. They don't just deny race and IQ. They deny the very basis of genetics. That's why they get deeply uncomfortable whenever someone points out that the mainstream consensus is that intelligence is HEAVILY genetic. Not "influenced by environment", but that genetics ITSELF shapes intelligence, and it forms the genes form the framework of intelligence, not the other way around. Every single one of them has written nonsense and a compete lack of understanding of genetics. Which is why the people who think black people don't have a lower IQ, are writing the dumbest environmental determinist shit, or this complete and utter nonsense:

>There are no isolated genes which are tied to intelligence. The system is too complex. There are no neatly packaged intelligence genes.

What bullshit. I bet I can trick racial equalitarians that there is no such thing as genetics, they are uneducated on the subject. Hence why they spout Lewontin fallacy bullshit, numbers that are utterly meaningless in context, but for the uneducated, they think "wow 99% high number

Another thing that makes them retarded, is that, notice how they focus so much on race? I don't get it, aren't they afraid of the implications? You realize a world were people understand that IQ is ALL genetics and that it differs between population is true and you are just delaying the inevitable? But they focus on race, and think that pretending black people aren't real well destroy the implications. No they won't. You don't need race to prove racial differences. Why are leftists so fucking stupid that they don't understand this?

Also, genetic drift, allele frequency and fixation makes it entirely possible for populations to exhibit extreme differences in average trait even if they are genetically the same, simply out of random chance!

Thus, ALL race and IQ deniers are just gene deniers, and the reason they deny GENETICS is SOLELY because of their far left religion. Have these race and IQ deniers never made a post without screeching about MUH /pol/ like the insecure pissbabies they are?. I mean, you need to understand, these retards unironically believe that human personality, behavioral traits, and cognitive traits aren't just as genetics as a person's skin color and hair color. In fact, these people have a strange understanding of genetics. Apparently, genes only affect superficial physical appearance and that's it. Everything else is influenced by environmental magic, and they believe it because part of the appeal the far left religion has, is the belief that they have total control over humans because of their belief in infinite malleability. It's what communism is built on. It's why Stalin hated genetics and had it banned, and ruined Soviet genetics, and why a person like Lysenko was able to preach his bullshit and why leftists activists got angry at E.O Wilson that they attacked him for "sociobiology". There is evidence of rapid evolution in humans, population differentiation, and that all traits are genetic, so objectively, you cannot dismiss the heredetarian hypothesis other then politics

These people are dinosaurs and they will die out as the practical aspects of genetic intelligence/behavioral research comes out. But since they are zealots, they won't change.

>Studies of clustering reopened a debate on the scientific reality of race, or lack thereof. In the late 1990s Harvard evolutionary geneticist Richard Lewontin stated that "no justification can be offered for continuing the biological concept of race. (...) Genetic data shows that no matter how racial groups are defined, two people from the same racial group are about as different from each other as two people from any two different racial groups. This view has been affirmed by numerous authors and the American Association of Physical Anthropologists since. A.W.F. Edwards as well as Rick Kittles and Jeffrey Long have criticized Lewontin's methodology, with Long noting that there are more similarities between humans and chimpanzees than differences, and more genetic variation within chimps and humans than between them. Edwards also charged that Lewontin made an "unjustified assault on human classification, which he deplored for social reasons". In their 2015 article, Keith Hunley, Graciela Cabana, and Jeffrey Long recalculate the apportionment of human diversity using a more complex model than Lewontin and his successors. They conclude: "In sum, we concur with Lewontin’s conclusion that Western-based racial classifications have no taxonomic significance, and we hope that this research, which takes into account our current understanding of the structure of human diversity, places his seminal finding on firmer evolutionary footing."

>> No.10785718

>Genetic clustering studies, and particularly the five-cluster result published by Rosenberg's team in 2002, have been interpreted by journalist Nicholas Wade, evolutionary biologist Armand Marie Leroi, and others as demonstrating the biological reality of race. For Leroi, "Race is merely a shorthand that enables us to speak sensibly, though with no great precision, about genetic rather than cultural or political differences." He states that, "One could sort the world's population into 10, 100, perhaps 1,000 groups", and describes Europeans, Basques, Andaman Islanders, Ibos, and Castillians each as a "race". In response to Leroi's claims, the Social Science Research Council convened a panel of experts to discuss race and genomics online. In their 2002 and 2005 papers, Rosenberg and colleagues disagree that their data implies the biological reality of race.

>In 2006, Lewontin wrote that any genetic study requires some priori concept of race or ethnicity in order to package human genetic diversity into a defined, limited number of biological groupings. Informed by genetics, zoologists have long discarded the concept of race for dividing groups of non-human animal populations within a species. Defined on varying criteria, in the same species a widely varying number of races could be distinguished. Lewontin notes that genetic testing revealed that "because so many of these races turned out to be based on only one or two genes, two animals born in the same litter could belong to different 'races'".

>Studies that seek to find genetic clusters are only as informative as the populations they sample. For example, Risch and Burchard relied on two or three local populations from five continents, which together were supposed to represent the entire human race. Another genetic clustering study used three sub-Saharan population groups to represent Africa; Chinese, Japanese, and Cambodian samples for East Asia; Northern European and Northern Italian samples to represent "Caucasians". Entire regions, subcontinents, and landmasses are left out of many studies. Furthermore, social geographical categories such "East Asia" and "Caucasians" were not defined. "A handful of ethnic groups to symbolize an entire continent mimic a basic tenet of racial thinking: that because races are composed of uniform individuals, anyone can represent the whole group" notes Roberts.

>King and Motulsky, in a 2002 Science article, state that "While the computer-generated findings from all of these studies offer greater insight into the genetic unity and diversity of the human species, as well as its ancient migratory history, none support dividing the species into discrete, genetically determined racial categories". Cavalli-Sforza asserts that classifying clusters as races would be a "futile exercise" because "every level of clustering would determine a different population and there is no biological reason to prefer a particular one". Bamshad, in 2004 paper published in Nature, asserts that a more accurate study of human genetic variation would use an objective sampling method, which would choose populations randomly and systematically across the world, including those populations which are characterized by historical intermingling, instead of cherry-picking population samples which fit a priori concepts of racial classification. Roberts states that "if research collected DNA samples continuously from region to region throughout the world, they would find it impossible to infer neat boundaries between large geographical groups."

>Anthropologists such as C. Loring Brace, philosophers Jonathan Kaplan and Rasmus Winther, and geneticist Joseph Graves, have argued that while it is certainly possible to find biological and genetic variation that corresponds roughly to the groupings normally defined as "continental races", this is true for almost all geographically distinct populations. The cluster structure of the genetic data is therefore dependent on the initial hypotheses of the researcher and the populations sampled. When one samples continental groups the clusters become continental; if one had chosen other sampling patterns the clustering would be different.

>Weiss and Fullerton have noted that if one sampled only Icelanders, Mayans and Maoris, three distinct clusters would form and all other populations could be described as being clinally composed of admixtures of Maori, Icelandic and Mayan genetic materials. Kaplan and Winther therefore argue that seen in this way both Lewontin and Edwards are right in their arguments. They conclude that while racial groups are characterized by different allele frequencies, this does not mean that racial classification is a natural taxonomy of the human species, because multiple other genetic patterns can be found in human populations that cross-cut racial distinctions. Moreover, the genomic data under-determines whether one wishes to see subdivisions (i.e., splitters) or a continuum (i.e., lumpers). Under Kaplan and Winther's view, racial groupings are objective social constructions (see Mills 1998 ) that have conventional biological reality only insofar as the categories are chosen and constructed for pragmatic scientific reasons.

It's a fallacy, because Lewontin was a Marxist who invented this argument to attack the "racists" but the argument is a fallacy. It's not an argument that has had ANY impact on the field of genetics. Only on anti-racists and far left sociologists. It's also a fallacy because it's a nonsensical argument that only works out of context, but with context, does not debunk the notion that race is a valid taxonomical concept. You can use this fallacy to even debunk any other "taxonomical concept", but Lewontin fallacy is only applied to race because of their politics, not of an objective scientific stance.

>Not an actual recognized effect. A poor sport of trying to mimic the hype being Flynn effect with way less supported studies

You do know that the Flynn effect was coined, not by Flynn, but by Charles Murray in the Bell Curve right? If not him, I think he popularized it. You do know that right? Don't you find it odd that the one thing from the Bell Curve the left believes is the Flynn effect, it speaks to how their politics and not reason is what drives their pseudoscience in this debate.

Anyway, yes dipshit, the Wilson Effect is real, search it.


You know, I guess its just a coincidence that IQ gets more heritable with age, and has nothing to do with the fact that intelligence is genetic. I mean, that type of phenomena is seen with numerous other genetic traits (such as how as a young child, you can have light blonde hair, but as you age, the hair gets browner, matching your parents)

Hi ChapoTrapHouse and far left retards from reddit, you are INHERENTLY human garbage.

Listen here retard. Genetics influences everything, to the point that I know that the subhumans here who deny even the possibility that your DNA, which is the reason why you even have physical form in this universe, could have a substantial impact on the brain and how it processes the universe, that this denial all stems from a personality problem caused by your genes. Trying to change you and convince you that you are wrong its pointless, just like how trying to force blacks to enjoy reading is a utterly pointless exercise and why all social programs that tried it, failed. You aren't changing them. They don't want to listen.

Every single one of you retards clearly do not understand much about genetics, yet here you are trying to lecture us about how race and IQ isn't real, when you don't even know concept likes genetic drift, or even the g-construct which makes IQ a valid thing.

The point isn't to convince you. The point is to remind anyone sane reading this, that the people who deny race and IQ LITERALLY DENY THE POSSIBILITY THAT GENETICS INFLUENCES HUMANS. There is a reason why there doesn't exists a person who denies race and IQ, but at the same time, believes that genetics influences human cognitive, behavioral and personality trait. To believe the latter, but to deny the possibility of the former will just cause serious cognitive dissonance issues. You should check out HARDTALK with Robert Plomin to see what I mean.

Funny, that is ezactly what happened years later, se here:


Collect genomes from hundreds of people that adequately sample global population, analyze hundreds of genetic loci instead of a handful, and you get neat clustering that quite corresponds to both geographical features and old ideas about race (tough sometimes the clusters overlap slightly).

Those denying this fact are still stuck in an era before cheap whole genome sequencing became possible. That is why they cite mostly old studies from early 2000s and earlier, like this poster. Meanwhile real science marches on.
