    I'm neither trying to prove nor disprove anything. I have a question that wants answers. The notion that evolution left all races equally intellect is dubious; I have either not seen or cannot remember the proof that shows otherwise. Same goes for the notion that evolution left races with differing average intellect.

    And how do you plan to go about answering it? Otherwise, you are just shooting off at the mouth and that accomplishes very little.

    I think the question that most people here have is: what is motivating this question?

    It's not "shooting off at the mouth" as you put it. I'm asking questions and wanting evidence. If you find that to be intolerable, well, sorry.

    That's a silly and redundant question. What motivates any question here?

    you didn't answer the question.

    you were motivated to ask this question & create this thread, for what reason?

    what is the endgame of this discussion?

    This thread is about the topic. Not me.

    Perhaps you would rather ask every person who ever asked a question in this forum that question? Would you like an improved version of your questions to show up every time you post a thread?

    Don't waste my time.

    Why are you assuming that evolution is a factor in any and all potential racial variance?

    In order to answer these loaded questions, we first have to determine if evolution is what drives any and all intra-species variance.

    We can start doing this by challenging our own assumptions about evolution. The first question related to this is "If an individual undergoes a mutation, is this something we should consider evolution?"

    Its not just evolution, but "magical" evolution.

    I think Darwin is shaking his head.

    But you are providing nothing of substance yourself. Why do you get to ask questions and provide no answers or evidence but you expect others to provide them? Let's sum it up:

    -You have a question about evolution
    -You have no real basis or reasoning behind the question, but it's still a question
    -You have no proof or evidence for your claim
    -There is no scientific method or logic involved

    Did I sum it up well?
