Hmm... I see.

You have helped shed more light on the subject. It does look like im going to have to discard this theory as mere nonsense. The amount of evidence against it far over shadows the evidence for it.

I really don' t know where to start. I am a high functioning autistic, but I certainly can't speak for other autistics since there's such a wide range individualized behavioral and neural items that it's regarded as a spectrum instead of a specific item. For myself, when I was younger, I got around four hours of sleep a day, now at the age of 43 it seems like there are days where I can't get enough... it's probably age.

I lack empathy, although I've learned to use scripts to fake it.
I've always expected order around me, and can see the order in chaos.
During my military years, I enjoyed the regimented lifestyle. I was good at what I did, and my peers regarded me as 'scary' because I had a reputation of having a focused ruthless efficiency that served me well. But, when I got out, I discovered that I didn't truly grow at all while in that lifestyle, I had lost my self identity.

Now, 17 years later, 25 years into 'adulthood', I am where I should have been 13 years ago. I still have a very formal face to face way of manner that irritates some people that I deal with.

I don't consider the spectrum to be evolutionarily advantageous at all. Quite the contrary.

I also live with autisim iam quite vigirious in my work when ever you can get me to foucus. And i also dont think its an eveloutionary trait however i would like it if it was.

Is there Jewish People with autism other than Albert Einstein?

Did Autism Ignore Jews?

I know how & why the magnetic North Pole is not going to be stretched, lol! Einstein was incorrect; it has little or nothign to do with the Earth's crust moving indpendently from its core. And yes, i'm about to prove it but back to autism:

I might know why so many more people have autism; remember it affects more boys than girls and a female brain is designed to process emotion differently than the male brain. It has to do with an injury discrimination causes for if you practice anything past a point of completion you eventually see children being harmed. Obesity in children is an example of this. Discrimination can result in an emotional injury that is then realized as a physical injury - if it is severe enough. I truly believe you are now seeing the endemic discrimination of women realized past a point of completion thus it is affecting children in utero and is being realized as a physical injury.

What I'm still asking myself is Why these kids seem to be fine until a certain point after birth, as unless I meet the parents and observe the environment I cannot know if any common markers are present. I believe you can 'heal''s possible...I also know autistic kids do share some common traits with those who are said ot be geniuses in terms of how they can use meomry and imagination - how they visualize things - and I do know geniuses do not sleep as much as the average person or so my research shows BUT

Please stop others from claiming Einstein and Jefferson were austistic! I hear this all the time now. LOL: Both of those men thought like women - in wholes! They were not autistic! Someone even said of Jefferson that his need for emotional validation was feminine like. When men hit a dead end and fail to reason women into the equation they begin making up nonsense and labeling what is female "defective". So now we're all autistic??? By our very natures??? That's just silly!

It is an evolutionary marker as in all things happen for a reason...if we are about to realize more than ten percent brain usage which we are then why wouldn't autism preceed that? You have the injury and then you have awareness of it and then you solve it...finally you have that change, actual evolution itself as we begin to create a new form to accomodate new abilities. Darwin failed to reason spiritual or metaphysical evolution; he failed to reason human consciousness evolving. Think of it as the ASCENT not descent of man.

And think of Neanderthals dying out in France. In one of the last places they were on Earth you find stunning 3D representations of life such as running animals. Those people devolped a new ability, seeing and then recreating in 3D, and so could create art that was very lifelike, like nothing they created previously. Then they were gone...or were they? Did they make an evolutionary leap and so begin to create a new form to accomodate that new ability? A form very close to what we are today then appeared.

It's as if they came to have God or creator awareness thus they created actual art and so the human form followed suit.

BTW: A magnetic Pole flip or shift is not the same thing as a pole shift itself. Earth will correct it's 23.5 degree tilt and that has more to do with volcanology and the core and crust moving indpendently. A massive volocanic eruption in Italy as big or bigger than Krakatoa would cause a pole shift and would cause a major dispruption in the Earth's field...if your brain is walloped by electromagentism what can happen to you is what can happen to a person who has a seizure: your memory is wiped away, as if it is erased. For most people this is only temporary but what if the current was very, very strong, stronger than anything a seizure produces? I'll tell you what would happen: Exactly what Native Americans say:

People would walk around as if insane.

I do not recall the title of the article but a man with high functioning autism debunks the Einstein / Jefferson had autism myth. He is pretty thorough and seems a little upset about's on the web...I'm like him:

WHY is it so important for you to reason away genius by claiming it is a defect? And why claim autism itself is a defect? Autism like blindness can give you abilities you might not otherwise have but making that emotional connection to and with people does not seem to be one of them...both Einstein and Jefferson had relationships with others and close ones...Temple Gardiner (Grandin?), a very high functioning autistic, says she does not have that desire or ability; that she finds people uninteresting and boring; that she seems not to be able to have such relationships and that she does not even yearn for them. She says that type of emotional connection or response does not seem to exist within her.

Einstein not only had two wives he had affairs outside of his marriage. What he did not have were people skills. Lacking people skills is not autism! If it were we'd have a nation of autistic lawyers and CEO's.
