    Philosophically, I'd like to find the answer that makes most sense. Scientifically, there may, in fact, be a certain answer. Who knows?
    You misunderstood my point. Your statement is absurd because you were certain that the question remained unanswered.

    the question has indeed been left unanswered if one refuses to read the thread and acknowledge those comments that one disagrees with.

    the fact is, many folks in this thread have answered the question.

    One can easily counter with:

    What is the motivation & agenda of suggesting that evolution magically left all races equally intelligent, yet changed many other things of our being?

    What is the end game? To be politically correct?

    You're saying the question has been absolutely proven?

    you show us one person who suggests that evolution has magically done anything, and then we can respond to your silly strawman.

    Your question fails logically because it begs the question. It presupposes that evolution is the cause of intra-species variance.

    What is your end goal in this discussion, Wake? What are you trying to prove or disprove? And, most importantly, why?

    see? now you're moving the goal post from "answered" to "absolutely proven".

    what is your basis for being highly suspicious for this notion?

    what is your endgame for having this suspicion?

    what are you ultimately getting at?
