SLC News: Science Edition

Better: pseudoscience.

Why people with no background in science shouldn’t blithely assume they are qualified to embarrass themselves by rambling on subjects they so obviously do not understand.

And why Der Movement needs genuine scientists to do quality control on sweaty “movement” ramblings.

Hint: scientific “materialists” understand more about organism development that what is implied in this retarded essay.

Another hint: the fact that all facts are not yet known doesn’t mean you are free to invent whatever fantastic fantasies you wish.

Having said that, the essence of real science is open-mindedness, testing hypotheses – hypotheses that have real explanatory power.  I do not dismiss “morphogenetic field theory” out of hand.  Who knows?  It may be true.  But we need evidence, not “movement” solipsism.  And the need for such a theory has to be based on real gaps in existing theory, not imagined gaps that do not exist, or small gaps that are rapidly closing.

A last hint: interesting similarities between separated identical twins could well be genetics, random chance, and confirmation bias.  There are no doubt separated identical twins who lead completely different lives with no overlap – but we do not hear about those, as they are not interesting.

I’m not surprising that Der Movement finds someone like Sheldrake seriously.  If I recall correctly, this hasn’t been the first time his “work” has been brought up by some uninformed Type I idiot.

Let’s reverse the course, and have someone like me write long rambling essays about “traditionalism” and “theosophic philosophy” without knowing a damn thing of what I’m talking about.  I’m sure all the Trad-Nutizis wouldn’t like that at all.

Roissy weeps.

From VDARE:

Greg Cochran is doing a fundraiser at West Hunter to pay him to review “Who We Are” in depth.

That’s the sound of a tin cup being rattled around.

Disgusting. How about just reviewing the book for, like you know, nothing?  For free?

Better yet: Ignore it.  How many times do the same leftist lies on race have to be refuted again and again?  But if you are so motivated, go to it.  For free.

That Erudite Cochran Again

More shallow stupidity.

Mr. Clogged Arteries writes:

Now you see some signs of other stuff in Sicily or Calabria today, but that seems to be later, from Arab or Byzantine times.

“Stuff.” What “stuff?” Lasagna? Olive oil? A horse head in a bed? Oh, the idiot is talking about population genetics. As is typical of HBD, the analysis is shallow. The relative genetic continuity in Italy (Ancient-Modern) – contra the heavy breathing “movement” and Arthur “Pesci” Kemp – is not simply due to “the slaves all died out” or “the slaves were mostly European” but likely a combination of those two: many, not all, of the slaves died out, and the ones who were assimilated were for the most part European, and the others mostly NECs not very genetically distant (as would be Nigerians or Chinamen) from the native population. It’s not that there was absolute zero genetic influx, that is absurd, it’s that the influx was much smaller than is popularly believed, and was mostly European (with some Levantines mixed in). Likewise, the “stuff” in “Sicily or Calabria” from “Arab or Byzantine times” was also much smaller than is popularly believed, and mostly Near Eastern/North African NECs; the combination of a small influx of peoples not enormously distant from the native population didn’t alter things too much (granted the Near Easterners and North Africans may have carried some sub-Saharan alleles). This later influx also (subsequently) included Normans, French, Spaniards, and North Italians, further adjusting the population back in the (overall genetic) direction of its original constitution.

The Unbearable Stupidity of HBD (and Greg Cochran)

Laughable.

When that old IQ-GDP correlation doesn’t quite go the way the HBDers want, they sure know how to wave their hands around and excuse subpar perfomances by their Asian darlings (you know, the folks who cheat on achievement tests and only report test scores from well-educated urban populations).

The arterosclerotic Greg Cochran says:

…bad choices (Communism), having the world kick you in the crotch (Mongols), or toxic intellectual fads can all make smart peoples unproductive.

Yes sir, the Chinamen (but not the Slavs, no siree) are held back by the legacies of Communism. And those poor pacifistic Mongols have been kicked in the crotch by the world, don’t you know.
I mean, even for a misanthropic retard like Cochran, that’s beyond delusional. Hey Greg, I don’t know, but maybe the Mongols have been more the kickers than the kickees when it comes to global crotches, eh?
If memory serves, I do believe the Mongols established a vast empire through brutal warfare, terror, and the slaughter of civilian populations, followed by the exaction of tribute from the conquered peoples. And all that wealth and power resulted in what, pray tell? The Mongols are unique in human history in having established a long-standing empire lacking in any foundational cultural idea or impetus whatsoever. Ethnic Mongol cultural achievements: zero.
Hey, fundamentally dishonest HBDers – if you want to pick peoples of whom it can be reasonably said that they’ve been “kicked in the crotch by the world” how about the Balkans? Russians (Mongol conquest, Communism and genocidal Jewish commissars, Hitler’s invasion, Jewish looting of the post-Soviet economy)? The Irish? Sicilians? How about the Basques?
Oh wait…they’re not Asian, so historical excuses don’t count, eh?


Derbyshire Shilling Again

Same old, same old.


IQ, Cochran, positive things implied about East Asians/Chinese – does the child porn apologist Derbyshire ever get tired of himself?  Apparently, his “wife” has become tired of him, preferring to play with social media apps than dealing with the tiresome old bore of her “husband.”

I’ll say this: as critical of the “movement” as I have been, and will continue to be, I will shower with praise any “movement” “leader” or prominent “activist” who takes a consistently applied and loudly proclaimed principled stand against the HBD cult.  Let someone else beat the anti-HBD drum as I have done and I will elevate that individual to a higher level of esteem compared to the lowly, cringing “movement” masses who grovel in front of the Altar of Asia,

Another Creative Genius Fail

Dumb Cochran.

Before defending Jews (*) as innocent and naïve waifs who foolishly actually believe in the extreme egalitarianism they preach to the Gentile rubes, the “creative genius” unburdens himself thus:

Considering that I have gone and on and about the lack of any built-in instinct to favor your own race, and explained why no such tendency is likely to evolve, I am hurt. But there is a simple solution to that.


Well, OK, that’s computer work.  What about Greg’s “real-life” examples?  Cherry picked?  Didn’t the Indians (dot, not feather) eventually work together to eject the British, for example?  Groups like Jews and Chinese are known to be high on ethnocentrism. Jews view themselves as akin to a race and there are more Chinese alive than all the Whites combined; Chinese are more or less a race as well.  And, certainly, East Asians living in other people’s nations have developed a very nice racial solidarity.

More to the point, contra Cochran and the rest of the HBD scum, IT DOES NOT REALLY MATTER.  As those of us with intellectual honesty (and common sense) have stated over and over again, the pursuit of ethnic genetic interests has nothing to do with the “evolution” of anything, but rather with rational thought mechanisms (that is beside the point that [evolved] ethnocentrism actually does exist, more in some groups than others; however, the fact remains that such innate ethnocentrism is not required for EGI).

But Cochran and the HBDers always either insinuate or openly state that “genetic interests cannot exist because we have not evolved X,Y,Z.”

They are frauds and liars, knocking down straw men.

But, let us turn it around.  Have humans evolved a preference for “high IQ” or any other of the ranked phenotypic traits so beloved of the HBDers?  Let’s look at the verdict of history, let us look at the experiment of real life!

Fact is, Greg, folks prefer dumb athletes, moronic celebrities, alpha male blowhard leaders, dark triad pick up artists, etc. over brainy scientists, academics, inventors, and HBD bloggers. That’s the evolved preference, from human evolution, to prefer the muscular hunter, the successful leader, the charismatic individual, the sexually attractive and successful, and to scorn the spindly brainy nerds unable to kill the mammoth, unable to inspire men into battle, and unable to excite the ardor of the opposite sex.

Folks prefer Babe Ruth over Albert Einstein, Kim Kardashian over Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Muhammed Ali over Bruce Lahn, Donald Trump over nebbish policy wonk Jeb Bush, and dim-witted and violent Negro athletes over balding and unattractive (and artery-clogged) New Mexican HBD bloggers.

That’s the way of the world, that’s our evolved preferences, so give it up Greg!  HBD is useless!  Who cares about IQ?

Oh wait, we will be told, we need to use rational thought mechanisms to decide what preferences are best, are most adaptive, and are better for us and for society, in the modern world.  Very good, very good.  Genetic continuity, including at the ethny level, is better for us in the modern world as well, you mendacious jackasses; in fact, genetic continuity is the very definition of biological adaptive fitness – more so than favoring some racial alien with a “high IQ.”

Once again, we are really getting tired of Cochran’s tiresome shtick as the “misanthropic, foul-mouthed, lovably ill-tempered creative genius.”  You’re boring Greg, a big YAWNfor you, and with increasing tribalism, the days of aracial HBD are numbered.  Unfortunately, the days of White survival are numbered as well, and the longer Whites waste time with the HBD cult, the less of a chance Whites have of out-living it.

Speaking of out-living: the unfortunate reality is that the wrong one died; in a just universe, Henry Harpending would still be alive and Greg Cochran would be the one dead. Well, it’s too late for the former, but we can still hold out hope for the latter.  How’s the ticker doing these days, Greggy?  Wouldn’t want you to get all worked up over at the blog you know.  Sudden heart attacks do happen, especially to those prone to them.  EGI Notes betting pool: who will drop dead first, Tricky Dick Lynn or Ticker Temper Cochran?  Dick is older, but Greg seems rather unhealthy.  Place your bets!

* A Judeophilic HBDer!  Who has ever heard of that?

A Creative Genius on the Reality of Race

One HBDer’s opinion on race.

I would suggest that any population – a group whose members have mated within that group, almost entirely, for some time – and has experienced strong-enough natural selection to change significantly in some trait that we give a shit about can usefully be considered a race.


My response to that elegant, eloquent, and articulate argument is to state that what I “give a shit” most about is genetic kinship. Yes, traits are important, but not more important than kinship. No doubt, parents would want their children to exhibit quality traits, but, for most normal parents, the paramount issue is that the children are their children. One would think that most parents – perhaps including HBDers – would not replace their own children for those of strangers who happen to exhibit better traits “that we give a shit about.” The same would, or should, apply to ethnies.

But the genetic architecture isn’t all that important: it’s the differences that matter. Pygmies are really short – that’s what matters.


The battle cry of HBD – genes don’t really matter, only phenotypic traits, and our subjective ranking of those traits according to personal values, matter. And then the HBDers accuse Salter of the naturalistic fallacy! 

Most genetic variation in humans is within-group, rather than between-group: so fucking what?


Well argued sir! Bravo! A creative genius indeed!  How can this nonsense compare to such honeyed words of wisdom?

Sidenote: Also amusing is the execrable mongrel Jayman’s assertion that he and the thing HBD Chick do not consider “Celt” populations to be NW European. After all, a triracial Jamaican and a self-described member of an “inbred ethnic group” are no doubt the best judges of what is, and is not, a NW European. Also interesting is the claim that non-NW European members of NW European societies all demand redistribution to themselves. Certainly, as we well know, wops. micks (*), hunkies, etc. are as represented on the welfare rolls as are, for example, Jamaicans and Hasidic Jews.


HBD, HBD, HBD marches on.

*Not considered “NW European” by the HBD retards.  What are they?  Leprechauns, perhaps?
