Well .. ain´t his comments based by his research and observation ? When results speak for themselves, do we deny ? Isn´t his comments just a result of his observations as a scientist? He should not be stripped of honors when he has data to back up his comments.

The real question should be is that what he said or what they said he said.

Just wondering everybody seems to be going full Piglousy lately with the lies to the press.

luckily he sold his nobelprice to an russian oligarch..


He's clearly a Russian agent besides being a racist. Just like Trump.

Theres no data that shows IQ is genetic because other factors are always involved. Like lack of education and not being taught how to solve problems.

Okay.

im just saying iq testing seems to be unfair to africans


But not unfair to Asians who also didn't grow up in the "white's world"?

I think we need to NOT be offended when the facts point things out.

I think the IQ test helps Asians more than any other race but I think that is because they have cared to learn more than we care to in school. What if Dr Watson is spot on with his data and still a prick with his opinion at 90? Leave him alone.

The question, "But does a 90 year old racist views wipe out all the good he has contributed? Should all his honors be wiped out because of this?" Wipe out his honors? Let me ask you this. Should we teach that America never went to the moon because all the rockets were designed by Nazis that once used slave labor?



Yes.

We see that going on in the US now.

Erasing history because our founding fathers weren't PC.

Erasing a lifetime of achievement because someone doesn't obey the social mandates of our current society is the new normal to the authoritarian douche-monkeys.

Ooops, did I say, "Douche-monkey"?

No No no no .. IQ is proven to be mostly genetic and you need IQ to learn ( certain genes make your lerning capacities, are you quick learner or weak )
Genes don't just influence your IQ—they determine how well you do in school

Childhood intelligence is heritable, highly polygenic and associated with FNBP1L


Large study uncovers genes linked to intelligence

But now a new study of nearly 80,000 people, published in Nature Genetics, has managed to identify a number of genes that seem to be involved in intelligence. According to a dictionary definition, intelligence is "the ability to learn, understand or deal with new situations" or "the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly"


SNPedia

Another IQ gene
(C;C) has higher cranial capacity (about 2 teaspoons) and over 2% higher IQ.

(C;T) is half this positive effect.

i think an important question that needs to be raised is, why do these "racist" ideas have such a tendency to pop up with researchers doing similar types of research? and why is it when they report their findings it is automatically racist? i remember several years ago a big hullabaloo being raised when research at a Canadian college showed that different races (not just black/white), had higher and lower average IQ's from each other. we certainly don't call it racist when research shows that different races have higher and lower rates of certain diseases and medical issues such as diabetes. just as we don't call it sexist when we find that more women suffer from breast cancer then men, or that men have higher rates of prostate cancer. we just take it as a given. and that having different DNA has effects on different races. so why is it a problem when it is found that different DNA actually does have effects on things like IQ? seriously next thing you know DNA testing for racial heritage will be racist, since that seems to prove that there is indeed differences between races.

seriously at this point we should stop referring to dogs as different breeds. that a dog is a dog, and is equal to every other dog. be it a Chihuahua, Pitbull, or English Bulldog. they are all the same and have no differences between them as they are all dogs. and that anyone who favors or disfavors any specific breeds of dogs are racists. after all race, ie breed has nothing to do with a dog's IQ, or being any better or worse than others for different things. here is no reason a Chihuahua or Jack Russel should not be seeing eye dogs, they are equal to all other dogs after all. no reason a sheep farmer should not use a Pitbull for herding sheep. or any reason we should not have police K-9 units filled with Chihuahuas for taking down suspects and finding drugs and explosives. this is exactly what we are saying if we don't accept the fact that different races of humans are different from each other because they have different DNA.


guess we had better stop teaching things like biology, animal husbandry, and the theory of evolution. as well as burning all the textbooks since they are according to things like this false and lead to/ are racism.

If so then people like Winston Churchill are in the same boat and should be stripped of any honours or Knighthoods they received in life.

All old people are racist to a point, because there world was a racist place to exist, it's us that have the problem with politically correct bullcrap.

Just because the Mans an old arse don't mean his contributions to the scientific world should be dismissed.

The facts are 'racist' to some people but I am with you 100%.

Do the lefties only trust the IPCC "science is settled" scientists and not the scientists who collect DNA data? Peer Review with no dissent other than the moral aspect of altering DNA, 60 years of research leading to modifying DNA and this is junk science to lefties?

That would be very selective and transparent to the motive for believing such.

Were they facts or opinions?

If they are facts can some one please provide some supportive evidence.

For every study that makes that claim there are 6 that will blame the current education system. But here's the truth there has not been a gene found that directly links to intelligence. But there has been some studies done on adopted children. And environment is the biggest factor to higher scores. For example taking a black child and placing them with white parents they will have a much higher score.

So the real issue becomes socio economic. The more money you have the better your education

Spot on its class war, not a race war, always has been that way.

Colour, creed, and religious orientation are just another way "They" promote their divide and conquer mentality amongst us.

We know very little about how to raise IQ but quite a bit about what lowers it; inbreeding and poor nutrition during childhood being first among them. Lower IQ points out historical and cultural norms for groups which brings their averages down. Somali children are often malnourished thus lowering IQ - is that a racist remark?
Some will say there is only 1 race are often also the ones to complain about cultural appropriation and lack of opportunities for those of certain groups. We can't have it both ways.

What are you made of ? Think about it.. bones , flesh etc.. but basicly you are made of cells and all cells have genes.
Genes are the base of us all. It is not your environment, it is not what you eat. What genes has given to you pretty much determines what you capable of doing, achieving and thriving. What you are talking about is environment and time how those can impact us and make us better learners but you can do it in the limits you have been given ( genes )

We can if we feed everyone appropriately and offer them an education to boot.

But we don't want smart healthy people en mass as they are far more difficult to cater for and control.
