    LA- what it amounts to is that everyone needs to take a grow-up pill, and get a life. If someone calls me a *&$^#, it doesn't mean anything, unless I somehow identify with the insult personally. Iow, if some part of me believes that indeed, I am a &#*$@, then I am merely reacting to what I see of truth in the insult. I am the only person who has the power to let the beliefs and insult of others affect me, thus I am the only person who has the power to not care what others say or think. If you are okay with whomever and whatever you are, no one's insults can have an effect, unless they turn those words and thoughts into action, at which point I will aggressively stand my ground.

    Sticks and stones and all that stuff. The problem is, we're raising a generation of wimps, people who can't take being called names or having their precious little feelings hurt.

    This is a problem.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I try to avoid it incase it offend anyone and use Jewish in formal writing. But I think the term Jew by it self isn't meant to be offensive, though it could of course be used in offensive context.
    One learns more by listening than talking.

    No.

    A NatGeo study started in 2005 Genographic Project - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia seeks to map migrations of all people from 11 indigenous populations.
    Call them ethnicities if you like (even 'races'), but people/s Are traceable through their genes and of course obvious morphology.
    Send in your blood and $150 and they'll tell you what Percent of each race you are.
    Since it's un-PC and not technically a perfect term, they use 'indigenous populations' instead of 'race', but it's a solid concept.

    Jews, among other have been studied and decidedly Are an Ethnic group. Much documentation available of course.

    And there is greater Genetic distance between some human races/populations than there is between, ie, Different Gorilla or Chimpanzee species.

    Hmm, sounds familiar.

    He obviously had no grasp of eugenics, either, since purebreds (which is similar to what he was going for) are weaker, and inferior than the "mutts" he wanted to get rid of. He just wanted total godlike control over a nation full of pretty blonde people. Hitler doesn't even belong in the same discussion as eugenics, because he was going for phenogenetics, which is completely different. Eugenics is the strengthening of the species as a whole, whereas phenogenetics focuses on a single phenotype, or race, or whatever people want to call it. It's dumb, because it rejects the introduction of stronger genes, just because they're not the same, so that particular breed misses out on the strengths others who aren't retarded develop through natural selective breeding.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    You clearly have no grasp of what I'm saying if you think I'm advocating the development of a master race, so shush.

    And he's clearly got he idea that since we have an MRCA we can't have different races.. or species for that matter. Which does not follow.
