There's no chimping out being done here, though. Hes just explaining that if one were to take (and this test has been done) samples of populations from around the world, there is more variation between two people in terms of total # of genes that are different within a population, than necessarily between populations.

Human populations are incredibly homogeneous genetically, and there's no scientific way to determine the cut-off point for different 'races', so race isn't an issue of science- it's a cultural and sociological thing. People just mistake that the genetic differences across populations are visually distinct means that there must be a large variation of genes, when in fact that's just not the case.

These people are idiots who do not read the papers they cite. They see on figure and think it justifies their views. I doubt the person posting can explain what is being analyzed in the PCA.

Here is the paper and some experts from it.


Patterns of human genetic variation are influenced by mating patterns, and the latter are in turn influenced by geographic and cultural factors (e.g., mountain ranges, language, religious practices). Consequently, it is not surprising that human genetic variation, while correlated with geographic location, is not perfectly clinal [37; 38; 39]. However, between-population differences can be seriously exaggerated if human populations are sparsely sampled.

Consistent with previous studies [37; 39; 40], our analyses demonstrate that differentiation among human populations decreases substantially and genetic diversity is distributed in a more clinal pattern when more geographically intermediate populations are sampled.

We also found that Iraqi Kurds have a closer relationship to European populations than Asian populations. These results increase our understanding of human population relationships and evolutionary history.

As observed in previous studies [4; 5; 7], we find that SNP and haplotype variation is highest in African populations, and that heterozygosity in non-African populations declines with geographic distance from Africa. This decline in heterozygosity has been interpreted as evidence for a worldwide serial founder effect originating in East Africa [4; 41]. While serial founder effects may explain much of the pattern of worldwide variation, we note two interesting deviations from the prediction of a linear decline in heterozygosity.

Not to mention this paper is evidence for OoA, which most racists deny. The paper flat out says why humans have such low diversity in the section "The out of Africa (OoA) bottleneck and the peopling of Eurasia."

Do you know how a principal component analysis works? All this picture shows is the majority of differences in genetics lay between the African population and the rest of the world. This supports a single bottleneck from humanity's origin in Africa.

Now the paper that this figure is from (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20643205) looks at a statistic called Fst, or the fixation index. Simply, this is the amount of genetic variation due to population separation. From this, the study shows that there is a global Fst of around 11%. In other words, about 11% of genetic variation is due to geographic separation. The remaining 89% is within populations.

Sure it's possible, but one has to ask what edge? Africa is humanity's birth of origin, and as with all species when comparing a bottleneck to their origin, the origin has the greatest diversity of genotypes. If you're looking for an "edge" they lay within that diversity as that is where the vast majority of humanities genetic heritage lays. We are at the verge of gene therapy and genetic engineering, soon genetics will be at the will of the mind and I believe it is imperative to leave our libraries intact. I'm guessing when you speak of edge, you're also alluding to selective edge in a Darwinian sense. Remember that there are many ways to evolve and two common ones are mutualisms and antagonisms.

But these differences between populaces accumulate the further they geographically are and the more in-between populaces are needed to create one single continuous graph.

>That would be true if there were no mutations or recessive genes, which sadly is untrue.

What are you talking about? Recessive genes provide a phenotype. One example you've probably heard of is sickle cell, a recessive mutation in hemoglobin that provides resistance to malaria. This mutation is also deleterious, as when the mutant is homozygous, it causes sickle cell anemia. However, from this we learned that potentially altering the shape or the hemoglobin molecule itself gives resistance to malaria. Mutations are generated at a relatively constant rate so the number of new mutations in the bottleneck is less than the genetic diversity present in the ancestral population.

I'm not going to argue about differences in phenotype differences because it seems obvious that genetics plays a role. But our comparisons, especially in the field of neurology are far from proving links between neurology and something as abstract as cognitive processes.

>> No.9132868

>What are you talking about?
That local environmental circumstances can apply different pressures on populations, leading to bigger or lesser pressure applied to various recessive alleles. Just like people of African ancestry tend to have rather specific type of hair (you know what I mean), while among native Eurasian populations hair varies from straight to extremely curly.

Also pardon me if I was told lies, but apparently there are genetic differences between various native populations that lead for example to varying numbers of repetitions of certain gene, which are correlated with ethnicity, which lead to disparate effectiveness of various neurotransmitters.

Where do you draw the line between one race and another? How do you figure out how many races there are and which population belongs to which race? One racialist holds up a set of traits to justify their classification and another holds up another set of traits to justify another classification. None of this is scientific.

Because we can all interbreed. The differences between people are minor all across the board. People within the same race are often more diverse than people of different races.

I'm still not sure what you're trying to say by the first point. I'm not arguing that there's no physical or genetic differences among the groups we've defined as races, rather that the causes of differences are unknown and their effects on the human experience and potential are unknown.

I was unable to find anything about repetitive sequences and neurology beyond this: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4685448/ Spinocerebellar ataxias are neurological diseases caused by additional repeats in a stereotype sequence in genes.

Together with other factors like existence of big predators relying on running or environment favourable for bacterial life this creates strong selection for certain phenotypes, and while diversity within boundaries of phenotype dominant in certain biome can and will be great due to mutations et cetera, there's no need in populace to adapt to less stable environment and thus deviations from the most successful phenotype will be repressed, as for example I brought up before the hair of native African populations is in great majority tightly curled, because it is advantageous over other forms of hair, thanks to greater ease of keeping necessary hygiene.

No, there are literally people who say "wow you're only concerned about melanin LMAO". And you try and explain "actually, race is about unique ancestries, with many different traits inherited, both cosmetic and much deeper than that too". But they won't look at the issue dispassionately, because they're idiots.

No, race is far more than just visual differences. The different races have different prevalences of diseases, for example. Picture related is the global distribution of "Asian Flush" - a condition that is UNIQUE to East Asians (when they turn red after drinking alcohol). It is thought to have developed as a random mutation in a Chinese man many generations ago. It is also thought that these genes have stuck around because they might also protect against certain diseases.

We have every reason to believe that these genetic racial differences also affect intelligence and other such things. Did you know that Asians have the largest brains on average? And they score the highest on IQ tests. Blacks have the lowest cranial capacities, and score the lowest on IQ tests.

I made a case for accepting the discussion of human sub-species genetics on a /g/ thread about youtube censorship,

As I recall my last visit to "sci" made a case for understanding the hubris of interpreted-versus-actual word definitions, and the real meaning of bias implications, using the hot button of racial disparities.
I showed how both mainstream sides (yes, both "extremes" are mainstream, and they're both extremes) AND the middleground whom ultimately sway the public decisions are so totally controlled by media forces that it's impossible to truly move forward in a positive way.

I was reported and the thread deleted after a few posts of some fanatical decrier refusing to take a rational analytical approach to discussing human mental differences for the sake of the actual discussion, which was a case for understanding how the masses are influenced by biased agenda.

I would remind /sci/ that the emotional aspect of the human brain is a mammalian instinct, and the cerebral aspect of the human brain is where logic can be allowed to override the mammalian instinct. I would remind /sci/ that for many, ultimately their mammalian instinct is to their blood relation family above all others, and if you've ever been in any kind of social interaction with people you'd find this self-evident.
But men are easy to trick, and even easier we follow along the group for the comforting idea of exclusive safety.

The only factor that would allow for a different race to "Actually" be a different race is if one group was genetically incapable of having viable-multi-generational offspring with another group.

Of course we are also speeding up natural geological processes while doing all of this, the largest factor not being oil or technological pollution; terraforming of all ariable land and cattle ranching being the largest factor, followed by road and structure building.

There's no point in arguing about scientific definitions of race anymore. you're absolutely correct in that there is no meaningful way to categorize humans into discrete races, and it comes down to differences in admixture instead of genetic drift.

However, the term 'race' as it is used in political and social discussions means something different.
It's mostly about phenotypes that cluster together in order to accrue a benefit in competing with other such groups, and it can easily be replaced by concepts based on castes, aristocracy, classes, religion, languages, history, and even simply myths.

The idea of us being one race, one people and fairly living together is simply a naive illusion, as are ideations of supremacy.
Practically speaking, you will always be a part of this competition for power and resources, no arbitrary definition of moral standards will ever change that.

for all I care physical differences can all be random vanity things i.e. results of sexual selection. but they signify rather good reproductive isolation, which in turn allows other traits to diverge. your assertion is that no, those other traits cannot possibly diverge.

There really is no objective definition of race.

There's no one gene responsible for height. It most likely several genes and epigenetics will probably play a role as well. Not to mention nutrition (which only affects phenotype).

>> No.9135935

I'm not sure there's a gene responsible for growth; we'd see much larger variance in height than we do if it was the doing of a single locus. Traits governed by single genes show wild extremes, usually even binary - can or cannot digest lactose, that sort of thing.

No, there is no one species into another, that is a simplification. The only objective definition you can have is if breeding is possible, nothing else.

>> No.9135964

yes, but there is no "le ebin race of tall people" theres a variation of people's heights, each person is individually unique and may have shorter or taller children even if some of them have some genes that makes it more likely to have taller children that can quickly be reverted or mutate.

most of them are by one guy, or at least a group of people. for all purposes we'll refer to this person (or group of people) as an entity (he, since he is the defector pronoun when talking about a hypothetical and unspecified person.

this entity seems to be trying to directly combat the prevailing opinion on sci that race exists and that there are significant differences between populations of people in regards to social predispositions and intelligence. he's doing this by posting bait threads directly challenging the idea of race or by posting off topic replies to threads from the point of view of those he opposes so that he can combat the specific claim he wants. in a sense. in essence, he's larping as one side then swooping in from the other to provide a swift rebuttal against the exact points he chooses.

It's the 'prevailing opinion' of the vast majority of scientists as well, especially those working in genetics.

The only response to this I ever see is "it's a liberal conspiracy to cover up the truth!"

>> No.9136609

Two things must be acknowledged:
-Not all genetic differences are equal, ie, differences in behavior, mechanical characteristics, physiology, and intelligence, will not manifest as some sort of sum of absolute difference. Populations with greater genetic variation could result in trivial differences, whereas slight and specific differences could be profound. Many pathways might not even be used, making changes irrelevant. Of course this goes both ways.
-Certain populations are very strange outliers

Race obviously exists, and certain clustering of traits does appear to bias behavior, belief, and psychology. Aptitude remains less clear.

I also suspect Europeans were engineered. Perhaps by aliens, or a species that came before us. Near as I can figure, we were probably pets, or designed to purge the entire planet. I mean look at it. Everywhere else in the world, brown and black hair. Brown eyes. Very low incidence of any other phenotype, about on par with other mammals. Then you have Europe. Where for some reason, you had a rapid emergence of different hair colors, eye colors, skin /dermal characteristics, facial morphologies, indefinite expression of lactase. And on top of it, we're extremely susceptible to mindless expansion and hierarchical control. Almost as if we were created to be pets, playthings, slaves.

Race has never been the real problem.
It's a culture thing.
Brown or white or yellow skin doesn't make people act a certain way, but where someone comes from dictates the culture they've grown in, and when culture and race happen to be in the same area (Asian people typically live by an Asian culture) it's an easy identifier for what that person could be like.

I would never assume that a turban and a beard make someone a rapist, but if people with turbans and beards typically come from a place of, for lack of a better term, "Rape Culture", it's about as unreasonable as it is politically correct to think that that person might be more likely to rape someone than someone from a different culture.

>Furthermore, Lewontin has never adressed the fact that there are many species with recognized subspecies which have Fst values lower than Humans. As can be seen below, I was easily able to find 8 other species with recognized subspecies which have Fst values no higher than humans. In fact, it isn’t hard to find researchers in the nonhuman literature taking any Fst value greater than zero as evidence that a population is a subspecies. See, for instance, Lorenzen et al. 2007 and Williams, Homan, Johnston, and Linz, 2004. Given this, it is clear that most biologists do not use Lewontin’s criteria, whatever exactly that is, for subspecies. And given that he has never made any argument for using it, neither should we.
