    Are Homo Erectus less intelligent than Homo Sapiens...on average???

    If so...why?

    And how would you know?

    Perhaps I'm to blame for not comprehending your literary sophistication.

    Since when has the US cared about paying reparations? As for promises? Are you truly that gullible? I suppose considering you accept something without any scientific basis and tout it as the truth, the answer to that question would be yes.

    Such as egalitarian ideology, which includes the dogma that all humans are equally intelligence?

    Don't you mean equally intelligent?

    Its not the egalitarian dogma that is of concern here, its the misrepresentation of research to justify prejudice

    Interesting. You have research which conclusively demonstrates that race and gender are not correlated with intelligence?

    I have data that demonstrates without a large standard error that turning on the TV after 10 pm results in sleep within half an hour. Do you think it can be published as a scientific study on the soporific effects of radiation? Correlation is not causation.

    I have a rock for sale:

    Homer: Not a bear in sight. The "Bear Patrol" is working like a charm!

    Lisa: That's specious reasoning, Dad.

    Homer: [uncomprehendingly] Thanks, honey.

    Lisa: By your logic, I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away.

    Homer: Hmm. How does it work?

    Lisa: It doesn't work. (pause) It's just a stupid rock!

    Homer: Uh-huh.

    Lisa: But I don't see any tigers around, do you?

    Homer: (pause) Lisa, I want to buy your rock.

    Good strawman, S.A.M.

    Can you please stop dodging the question? Once again, in big bold letters (because apparently you aren't wearing your spectacles.)

    Do you have any conclusive evidence which demonstrates that race/gender and intelligence are not correlated?[/size]

    I have data that can prove that all Electrical Engineers who have received grade A, on the whole planet have the same IQ +/- 5 points.

    Irrespective of Race or Gender

    Here is one analysis for typical occupations at various IQ levels:

    **140 - Top Civil Servants; Professors and Research Scientists.

    130 - Physicians and Surgeons; Lawyers; Engineers

    120 - School Teachers; Pharmacists; Accountants; Nurses; Stenographers; Managers.

    110 - Foremen; Clerks; Telephone Operators; Salesmen; Policemen; Electricians.

    100-110 - Machine Operators; Shopkeepers; Butchers; Welders; Sheet Metal Workers.

    90-100 - Warehousemen; Carpenters; Cooks and Bakers; Small Farmers; Truck and Van Drivers.

    90 - Labourers; Gardeners; Upholsterers; Farmhands; Miners; Factory Packers and Sorters.

    Note: The report was paid for by the British Civil Servant Department and conducted by a Professor with the help of several research scientists

    I'm doubtful of this. Were you serious?

    Yes I read somewhere that did the tests in many country as part of a UN program. However I do not think it covered all the countries. But I am guessing that anyone who can study Electrical Engineering and get A grade would be smart enough at the level that equalizes across the countries or gender. My other reasoning is that while you may find higher IQed students in that EE population, because there are other opportunities such that they will move to those opportunities leaving the like minded or like IQed students behind.

    Its odd how when Jews tend to score higher on intelligence tests than whites its usually attributed to an increased genetic predisposition but when other people score less than whites and someone brings it up they get in hot water. Even if they happen to be one of the people who discovered how genetics works. The disrespect given to this fellow astounds me.

    Or that their culture places a higher value on good education and hard work than whites. God forbid if I were to say that whites were more successful than blacks for the same reasons.

    Bingo! A lot can be learned from the Jewish culture - almost similar to the Patel culture

    Jewish culture, like screwing over the Goyim? If it's OK to assign 'good' qualities to a certian culture, then why not bad ones?

    I guess black people were when they expected the forty acres and a mule to materialize.

    Pretty dumb of them eh?
