>> No.9145011

It's a social Marxist "ideological" concept that everything in the world has no interpretation but that which is subjective; therefore, there is no objective value that can be deduced from anything; therefore, what is objectively true is subjective to the individual's interpretation.

It is following this line of logic, that gender must be a "social construct", because what it means to be a man or woman is subjective to the individual's experience, and not what the collective agrees it is.

This is obviously not true, as observable reality has clearly segregated the human species along a sex binary, as determined by our chromosomes; but to the social Marxist, science is an ideological construct that is nothing more than the consensus of individuals to attempt to attribute objective truth to a "subjectively" interpreted world.

SJWs deny observable reality in order to maintain the validity of their ideology.

I mean sure, genetics determines everything, and your environment determines which genes get expressed.

Certain subsets of the population like females will never express secondary sex characteristics of that of men (unless they have a genetic abnormality), and vice versa, and subsets of the population like Nigerians will never express intelligence like that of your average white European; because traits can't be expressed in individuals unless they have the genes for it.

Variation amongst IQs has already been broken down not just by nation, race and sex, but also by region as well. For example, the average IQ of someone in Wales vs. Manchester vs. London (assuming their heritage is "English").

Genetics determining everything is now widely accepted by anyone who claims to believe in science.

What you do with this information is entirely up to the individual.

>> No.9145026

Whether you choose to become a scientific "racist" (assuming you only care to discriminate on "race" alone) like the greatest scientists of old, or adopt an egalitarian value of attempting to re-mediate the environment of those who are below the mean on intelligence is up to you; but it's worth noting that Charles Murray's controversial research on IQ pointed out the obvious that unless the individual has chromosomes which encode for high intelligence, no matter how much you try to change that with environment stimulus, the person will never be as intelligent as you hope.

For the same reason that people who go to the gym, once they get shredded and lean, will always have different physiques, due to muscle insertions that are determined by their genes.

Same reason why we can't all look like Arnie or be a brain box like Einstein or Feynman; but you can be yourself :)

Despite there being a higher correlation with genetic inheritance than environmental adaptation with subjects of behavior and intelligence, it makes people angry to consider that they are naturally born lesser capable than others. That actually is racist, honestly, but emotions shouldnt be influencing research of the human mind and body.

The problem with talking about it is that socially it's just a bad move all around. You need to be capable of reflecting on the feelings of someone else in what is essentially a Gattaca kind of situation. The human mind is incredibly reactive, and telling someone they are just straight up a worse human elicits fear, doubt, a loss of confidence.

Niggers tend to live around niggers. Have you ever interacted with a black man who grew up around white people that weren't white trash? They turn into actual human beings instead of violent gangbangers. What the fuck do you think a wigger is? A white person who grew up around the ghetto culture and idolizes it. It's a self perpetuating culture at work, and the idea that you must identify with a group which survives in the west means that even black people away from the hood will feel connected to it because they're told it's their lifestyle. Do you think North Koreans have some genetic predisposition to believing their leader is a deity too?

btw a very interesting note on psychology is that most of the people who espouse blank slate theories also accept and are worried about genetic engineering and embryo selection.

It's a very nice insight into the reality of their beliefs.

Genetic determinism is too one sided when you consider that genes and environmental causes are really just different aspects of the same dynamical process. In the sense of determinism or causality you actually cant divide it into percentages. Only in population studies.

And how do you know genetics is more efficient than environment at making changes. You dont have any evidence for this and its nonsense considering you have to learn traits first.

G vs outcome studies? Evidence cant come from standard heritability studies because they study natural populations where there is no intentional effort to change a trait. I also think its going to be completely dependent and relative to the trait you want to change how much a genetic vs an environmental treatment makes a difference and even then it maybe context dependent. Human development is incredibly complex. If you want just a population wide effect then maybe genes is the easiest way to go but its not catering to the individual and any positive effect will be probabilistic and not determinate.

The human genome has not changed significantly over the time between the beginning of civilization and now. Therefore, a trait that requires an advanced society to manifest (such as aptitude in mathematics, metalworking, or literature) cannot plausibly be explained as having a genetic basis, except on an emergent level. And on an emergent level is when other factors like life experiences come into play and become dominant. Not everyone really tall is an amazing basketball player, nor is every amazing basketball player really tall. But a kid who is tall is more likely to be encouraged to play basketball, and some of those (purely by chance) will have initial success, which encourages them to play again, which makes them better, which leads to a positive feedback loop.

On a purely utilitarian level, belief that success comes from an innate ability is psychologically detrimental, because it makes an individual less inclined to adapt to change or work hard at self-improvement. It is however psychologically tempting, since the converse (failure comes from a lack of an innate ability) allows one to "offload" personal reaponsibility, i.e. "It's not my fault, I was born this way.'

Except for biology, the degree to which a genetic predisposition for a particular trait influences the manifestation of that trait, is infinitesimal compared to the influence held by the BELIEF THAT SUCH A PREDISPOSITION EXISTS. If a boy's father was a brilliant scientist or a criminal, and everyone expects him to be the same "because it's in his blood", and the boy is convinced, and lo-and-behold things usually turn out how we expect and anonymous interweebs point this out and declare science aptitude or criminality is clearly an inheritable trait because look there's a correlation in the data (Protip: this is how racism works). All of which is circular reasoning since the conclusion drawn is also an assumption made at the beginning.

The point is that for genetics, from simple logic, the differences are at the gene pool level, aka genes in common throughout a large population and not at the individual level.

If you did seperate out everyone individually and ignored "gene pool" patterns you get the nice no races result you like. If you actually did reasonable analysis you get races/ethnicities/geographic patterns.

The individual level with no way to handle "gene pools" in the function will not properly capture anything. It's cherry picking. Anyone could do a simple logical deduction that if you have gene pool X and gene pool Y, you won't see everyone in gene pool X having common identical matching genes, but rather a random selection from Y which will vary.

You have to go up another level on the abstraction and match each individual's genetics to a gene pool for such result.

This is not complex stuff and is basic deduction and logic. Which unfortunately you lack. Sorry shitbrain.

You can do this yourself. Imagine an abstract entity created by random selection from a large number set X, and another entity created from a large number set Y. Now make 100 of each.

Despite knowing they are created by distinct functions and their "number pool" you will find they very within from each other almost as much as with the other pool.

This example of "everyone individually differs a ton even of the same race" is a braindead obvious conclusion and only proves there are lots of very low IQ genetics still being selected. In fact that is probably the best and most obvious conclusion one should have from such a study.

>> No.9149204

Science is not "arguments."

Science is not a list of facts or debating points that can be proven right or wrong. Science is a process of observation. These points have been repeated for decades because after we were able to do large scale research on the human genome, the concepts that racist hold so dear were all disproved.

I never said anything about "individual vs population." You're making up some kind of fantasy argument in your head.

You also clearly don't understand human genetic diversity. You're assuming somehow alleles (versions of a gene) are extremely clustered between human populations. This is not the case. Humans have the lowest amount of overall genetic variation out of all primates. We have about 1/3 the total variation of chimps. Almost none of it is clustered. All humans are more related to one another than different troops of chimpanzees are, genetically.

>> No.9149223

To make it clearer

Function Y selects 100000 numbers from a big distinct number set

Function Z selections 100000 numbers from a big distinct number set that is unique from function Y's set

Now create 200 different entities that are the results of running the two functions each 100 times.

If you now analyze the "differences" between each individual entity you won't find there are two different functions.

If you analyze each entity and capture the unique numbers and look for other entities with the same unique number and recreate the distinct sets of numbers you will discover the two functions and be able to classify them through this.

You can vary the exact size of each variable in the example but you get the idea.

The gene pool is not captured or exposed by simply analyzing "is individual x different from individual y". If there is a genetic study that does not look for such gene pool patterns it won't find them only see the minor similarity between entities created from the same pool, when they happen to get the same patterns from the pool.

A shitty study that is intentionally done to ignore the concept of a gene pool is not valid. It is only valid at displaying the low intelligence of people who believe it.
