    -You have no proof or evidence for your claim
    -There is no scientific method or logic involved

    Did I sum it up well?
    he also has no scientific basis for doubting that evolution has created all races basically intellectually equal. and yet he wants us to respond to his baseless-speculation, with evidence, facts, & figures.

    this thread is inherently dishonest.

    You argue that to have a question one must always hve a large sum of knowledge on the issue already? Wow, interesting.

    No, but then it is just a question. You have no argument and you have no theory. You only have a question.

    your question is due to your baseless and evidence-free speculation about evolution.

    to challenge this speculation, you demand evidence, facts, figures, & data.

    that is not a mature nor honest way to ask a question nor debate an issue.

    Actually, you asked a question and then also made a claim or two. After which you demanded evidence despite not providing any for your own claim. You didn't provide anything falsifiable. It's not even clear what you mean by "race". Black? White? Asian? Are you talking nationalities? For example, you made a comment about Chinese when Chinese is a nationality, or could be a rough grouping of varied ethnic groups from a particular region (some of whom are quite different in culture, language, physical features, etc.).

    Also, your question doesn't require a HUGE sum of knowledge, but at least some basic knowledge and common definitions that can be agreed upon to begin to answer your question, such as the idea and definition of what constitutes a "race". If your base concept of race is flawed or simply not a valid way of categorizing humans, then the question is pretty worthless.

    Races evolved according to their needs. They grew by their own standards and relgious beliefs. Asians place great value on honor, so education is of paramount importance. Caucasians initially were tinkerers which is why Europe produced people who created items bringing us to where we are today. Negros lived more wild than the rest of us and placed more need on physical strength and endurance.

    Bottom line the three races are different, even though all of himanity began in one location.

    none of this has anything to do with evolution. and most of it is quite silly.

    You lost me at "Negroes"...but then I kept reading... and you lost me again at "the three races". As Thunder said, none of this anything to do with evolution.

    Evolution, correct, but it's not silly. Very early on it was asked if an Eskimo could win a foot race. I said they could if they set their mind to it and trained to do that. As it is, they have concentrated on what is important to them. What is being argued here is culture. Culture does play a role in the generic question.

    Asians do better in acedemics because their culture does emphasis that. If other races put as much importance, they would do as well.
