What use is IQ? Judging by the majority of posters who blindly and unquestioningly follow in the footsteps of Dickie Dawkins - not much. However, lets follow the scientists mantra. Anything that can be measured by statistics or quantified is by definition the right way to do things. After helpfully providing us with the Science of Eugenics, used to to such good effect by that great man, Josef Mengele and promoted so eagerly by those easily brainwashed by scientific junk, from Hitler to HG Wells we are now sifted and separated by means of IQ. Let look a little closer at IQ tests. Few scientists question them. If it can be quantified then it MUST be right. Quality is rendered useless under the strict reductionist regime. As the great Rene Guenon told us in his book "The Reign of Quantity" .. "Statistics merely consist only in the counting up of a greater or lesser number of facts which are all supposed to be exactly alike, for if they were not they would be rendered useless" In my own particular field of Astrology the meaningless of statistical study is plainly apparent but I digress.. Not content with inflicting Eugenics on us, bored scientists insisted they must find some other way to count grains of sand in an attempt to inflict more trouble. So what has the IQ Test given us. Mainly spurious results...its highly questionable whether people can be evaluated in such a way yet its use is widespread. Its Scientific! therefore it MUST be right! Its conclusions are the lifeblood of Racists. Where Science goes, racism is sure to follow..the two walk hand in hand. The scientific conclusions are pretty dire. IQ tests firmly inform us that:- Blacks have a far lower IQ than Whites. the results are not in serious dispute: blacks score, on average, significantly lower than whites in IQ tests in the United States, Britain and beyond. Hitler would be proud of you! The only plausible response is to accept that blacks are naturally less intelligent than whites. IQ is by its nature genetic. Yet again the bumbling Scientists have played right into the Racists hands and presented them with yet another gift which politicians can easily seize upon. Science not only causes War..it causes Racial Division and Hate..we ALL know about the positives of Science and we really are quite grateful for them. Sure we managed to get along without TV sets and medical advances but it would be churlish to refuse them..on the other hand at least they were alive to take use of them! A few Nuclear bombs and its goodbye! Scientists are very keen to gloss over the rather catastrophic negative effects. In many respects we were far better off without science. South American tribes yet to meet civilization are different only in the happiness of their faces. They are happy and want to be left alone..to be siritual..and to commune with Nature because that is where happiness lies. Needless to say you won't find many scientists on here eager to talk about the widespread use of IQ Tests...anymore than they are likely to start a thread on Eugenics. Its a tad embarrassing for them because it merely disproves the usefulness of the scientific method..it exposes inherent flaws. The unwillingness to engage with the IQ controversy is based upon their fear that any environmental factor in IQ is very difficult to sustain. There have been a few tentative attempts but they were easily dispatched by the White Supremacists. Indeed it is largely accepted that the variation in IQ within the white population is largely genetic, therefore science tell us that Black people are inferior. The scientific view is of black skin being used as an information-bearing trait, so that blacks are judged as a group rather than as individuals. This has prejudiced blacks in finding jobs and amounts to a scientific affirmation in excluding blacks from work in favour of their superior white race. IQ tests give the scientific nod and we must bow to the new Scientism religion action. A few more intelligent posters..well SAM to be precise has warned us of the dangers of leaving the communal love of others intrinsic in 'moderate' religion (and i stress medarate!)..and the selfishness and empty vacuity of its new heir..Dawkinesque Scientism..we must be very wary!
