    IN order to survive, the Kenyans had to run, for thousands upon thousands of years, the survivors prospered, the losers -food for saber toothed cats and worse..At the same time, the Prussians had the same problem, but, they made lances and spears instead...tens of thousands of years ago..

    Simply, do you think evolution, with it's supposed changing of humans, left mental and physical competence equal among all races? I ask because I haven't been given much if any empirical proof or valuable evidence for either side. I, for one, am highly suspicious of the notion that evolution left all races equally intelligent. So I'm left to question each side.

    Do the Chinese have an overall higher intelligence than, say, Aboriginees of Australia? Looking at history, I can see that certain races advanced far faster than other races. All humans can almost be treated like a bacteria, with different strains of the same virus, what with the way we've spread.

    Do you think evolution, with it's "magical" ability to cause people to vary from physical features and skin color, change everthing save mental competence? If mental competence wasn't touched in the slightest so that all races are equally intelligent, do you think physical prowess was also untouched in the slightest? What other things do you think political correctn---ehm, evolution, decide to leave equal?

    Please support your claims with evidence otherwise this'll just be a repeat of the other thread.

    EDIT: "Ye" is "yes". Confound you, Computer.
    Since all we have to measure such are psychometrics, there's very likely no way to tell, at present. Whatever the case, I'd wager that any differences are so negligible as to invite nothing more substantial than agenda.

    A better question is, why would evolution favour any one geographical sub-group of the same species over another, given commonality of origins and ongoing impediments? What was there in any given environment that necessitated greater mentality? Even those attributes that accounted for adaptation to climatics aren't indicative, as, in themselves, the differences never occurred in tandem with any concomitant cognitive crises. The fact that a species might become less hirsute and sweat less, reflects only the extent to which temperature and humidity might become factors. And ones that require no conscious effort to tolerate.

    Asians and Europeans went through several population cleansing bottlenecks. Less intelligent perished. (back and forth as ice advanced and receded.)
    Survival easier in warm climates.

    As to Black athletic superiority google Jon Entine's "The Last Taboo."

    Above demonstrated weekly by looking at an NFL game.

    Google "IQ and the Wealth of Nations" for starters.

    As I've said previously, you have personal/grudge issues, now again confirmed.

    I "came back to the thread" mainly to post an article I just came across and was published in the interim containing two very Relevant studies.
    Of course, had you quoted me fully, 'claiming victory' was appropriate, but even then, more of a segue/aside and Confirmed by, the new information. But you Dishonestly left off the Bulk/meat of my post.

    Please manage some self control, and even if you can't, at least add some token Topical content. At the time of this post you hadn't even voted in this poll.

    Dooh, of course not.

    Not all races are equal, but all races are human. Just like no human is equal to another human. if we were all equal, we would be all a bunch of clones. And that would make us less than dogs.

    Racially speaking ,it is our differences, shaped to us by the environment which we grew, separated by tens of thousands of years of evolution, that made each race wonderfully unique and each member of race unique.

    Yeah, responding to something when you see it less than a week later is SO much crazier than waiting 15 months to declare victory in a thread.
