    Gathomas88 wasn't the researcher in question so why are you demanding that he be answerable for the methods used in his cite.

    If you have all of these questions, then the internet is a big place and if you seek answers you will probably find them. Happy hunting.

    I do NOT hate our founding father's. Here let me give you an example, if i bring you a wild man from the bush's of papua new guini, who run's around naked dancing around a fire, and never bath's, and then i bring him and introduce him to your refined, civilized, intelligent, and modern adult daughter, and they get together and create a child, you don't think something got dilliuted and destroyed?

    No, it is actually the opposite.

    Gynecomastia (enlarged breasts in men)

    Gynecomastia is triggered by a decrease in the amount of the hormone testosterone compared with estrogen. The cause of this decrease can be conditions that block the effects of or reduce testosterone or a condition that increases your estrogen level. Several things can upset the hormone balance, including the following.
    Unless something has gone horribly awry, it can generally be taken as a given that greater levels of male or female sex hormones in an individual will play a dominant role in determining how "masculine" or "feminine" they appear to outside observers.

    It seems unlikely to you, that doesn't mean it's true. What if the researcher had a thing for black men? We don't know. Over and above that, bias may not have been the thing that caused the examination of a faulty sample. The person may not have been using good judgement.

    So? Where does it say they were used in this research?

    And again, my problem is that there is no mention as to how the groups where chosen.

    I never measured it. And you have put forward no research where they actually measured women's testosterone levels and then saw how that correlates with physical attractiveness. So yeah, I'm questioning it. Is there a problem with that?
    All you're doing here is begging the question. If you have any hard evidence available to form a rebuttal, go ahead and present it.

    I see absolutely no reason whatsoever to doubt the findings of the study on the face value alone.

    Their methodology appears to be perfectly legitimate and in-line with established scientific practice.

    He is putting it forward as research on which to base his claim so he should be able to answer the questions. If he can't then he should just say he doesn't know. Do you actually believe every piece of research that is done is accurate?

    You have put forward statistical evidence without any understanding as to how the sample was chosen and you want it to be accepted at "face value." What you are putting forward is pure rubbish, and no one who has actually been seriously involved with scientific research would accept that notion.

    To the best of my knowledge Gathomas88 is not involved in scientific research and so he doesn't have to be held to that standard. Surely you're not claiming that only actual scientists be permitted to post science references on a discussion board.

    I think that research is crap. And I have stated my reservations about it. It's fine to post scientific references, but it's not fine to say they be accepted without question.

    And, again, if you feel like actually proving any of that, be my guest.

    The veracity of scientific research is not determined by whether or not you happen to personally like its conclusions. If you want to dispute the study's findings, you need to provide evidence to support the assertion that its methogology was in some way fundamentally flawed.

    The burden of proof here is on you. No one else.

    The answer to the question depends on who you are. If you are a racist asshole or a Nazi, then clearly it is not acceptable. If you aren't one of those creatures, then I suspect, like me, you don't give a damn.

    I have heard anecdotes supporting that contention. Both groups have historically been portrayed as particularly low status people in the media. Some PR and public image work could probably change that.
