Celebrity phenotypes.

Steve Sailer has a shtick where he likes to bring up esoteric points to demonstrate how much smarter and more informed he is compared to all us peons. One of these points was the Hispanic (Mexican) ancestry of baseball Hall-of-Famer and war hero Ted Williams, who most people probably just assume was a typical British Isles-descended White American. 

The question – was Williams’ Mexican ancestry essentially White or did it have considerable New World admixture?

Williams’ paternal ancestors were a mix of Welsh and Irish. The maternal, Mexican side of Williams’ family was quite diverse, having Spanish (Basque), Russian, and American Indian roots.

Putting aside the question as to whether the “Russian” ancestry was actually ethnic Russian and not Jewish, we can ask how much “American Indian roots” there were.

I prefer actual genetic assays to subjective snap judgments about ancestry based on physical appearance, for example, from photos.  However, in the absence of anyone taking a biopsy from Williams’ frozen body, we will have to depend on the tried-and-true “movement” method of “look at dem dere pictures” to make a judgment on this issue.

And here.  I have seen another picture of Williams’ mother in which she looks remarkably mestiza; however, unfortunately I cannot find it online to link to here.

Williams’ Mexican grandmother and uncles.

A young Williams, looking phenotypically appropriate for a zoot suit riot.

An old Williams, looking like any random elderly White guy.

Note that the change in racial phenotype with age shown above is not unusual; I’ve seen that before, particularly with individuals with discernible admixture.  It seems that different ancestries are more predominantly reflected in physical appearance at different points in a person’s life.

I’m comfortable in stating that Williams’ maternal line reflected sufficient New World admixture (likely majority Amerindian admixture) to be phenotypically discernible. This background was also discernible in the young Williams, but he looked more typically “White American” as he aged. The admixture likely was not very large, but present. Given all of this, and Williams’ record as a fighter pilot and war hero, would he – as a single individual – have been assimilable in a White ethnostate? I would say yes, considering that his admixture was likely at a low level and that there are White Americans who have some low level Amerindian ancestry, but issues like this should be on a case-by-case basis. What applies to the “Teddy Ballgame” case is not necessarily going to apply to most (or many) half-Mexicans who would be less assimilable for one reason or another. But some of them, certainly, may be assimilable.

Let’s consider David Bromstad again.

Picture of David Bromstad with his parents can be seen here.

Their ancestry:

Aged 45, the designer celebrity has mixed ethnicity as his father is of Norwegian descent and mother is of Swedish and German descent.

Gee…what happened to the “Chinese mother?”  Bromstad’s sister, by the way, has a more typical Northern European appearance, also putting the “Chinese mother” lie to rest.  Thus, the phenotype of Bromstad and his mother would most likely be the result of a combination of genes present (presumably at low levels) in the genepool of the relevant ethnicities. Bromstad inherited more than his fair share of the “eat with dem chopsticks” genes while his sister did not.

It may be unfair to blame Mom Bromstad alone for her son’s atypical phenotype; see here.

These are all good pictures for Durocher’s forthcoming Unz Review essay about East Asian/Siberian admixture in Northern Europe.

We can be confident that is forthcoming, right?  Or maybe not – after all, Durocher’s reluctance is understandable given the sensitivity of the topic. Individual and ethnic amour-propre is a powerful motivator in the face of emotionally hurtful facts and hypotheses. However, as I like to say, the science is coming, ready or not, whether people like it or not, whether these fit with the current ideological fashions or not. I am confident that the progress of science and free discussion on the Internet will lead to an increase in human consciousness and apprehension of the truth. Right, Durocher?

I’m sure I can be forgiven for the plagiarism of the last paragraph above; after all, it is helpful so as to ridicule the hypocrisy of Der Movement.

Oh Siberia!

Of interest to all Europeans, as Durocher would say.  Emphasis added.

Some papers unlikely to be focused on by The Unz Review or Raciology crowds.

Number one.

In this study we compare the genetic ancestry of individuals from two as yet genetically unstudied cultural traditions in Estonia in the context of available modern and ancient datasets: 15 from the Late Bronze Age stone-cist graves (1200–400 BC) (EstBA), and 6 from the Pre-Roman Iron Age tarand cemeteries (800/500 BC–50 AD) (EstIA). We also included 5 Pre-Roman to Roman Iron Age Ingrian (500 BC–450 AD) (IngIA) and 7 Middle Age Estonian (1200–1600 AD) (EstMA) individuals to build a dataset for studying the demographic history of the northern parts of the Eastern Baltic from the earliest layer of Mesolithic to modern times. Our findings are consistent with EstBA receiving gene flow from regions with strong Western hunter-gatherer (WHG) affinities, and EstIA from populations related to modern Siberians. The latter inference is in accordance with Y chromosome (chrY) distributions in present-day populations of the Eastern Baltic, as well as patterns of autosomal variation in the majority of the westernmost Uralic speakers [1–5]. This ancestry reached the coasts of the Baltic Sea no later than the mid-first millennium BC; i.e. in the same time window as the diversification of west Uralic/Finnic languages [6]. Furthermore, phenotypic traits often associated with modern Northern Europeans like light eyes, hair and skin as well as lactose tolerance can be traced back to the Bronze Age in the Eastern Baltic.

Number two.

European population history has been shaped by migrations of people, and their subsequent admixture. Recently, ancient DNA has brought new insights into European migration events linked to the advent of agriculture, and possibly to the spread of Indo-European languages. However, little is known about the ancient population history of north-eastern Europe, in particular about populations speaking Uralic languages, such as Finns and Saami. Here we analyse ancient genomic data from 11 individuals from Finland and north-western Russia. We show that the genetic makeup of northern Europe was shaped by migrations from Siberia that began at least 3500 years ago. This Siberian ancestry was subsequently admixed into many modern populations in the region, particularly into populations speaking Uralic languages today. Additionally, we show that ancestors of modern Saami inhabited a larger territory during the Iron Age, which adds to the historical and linguistic information about the population history of Finland.

This model, however, does not fit well for present-day populations from north-eastern Europe such as Saami, Russians, Mordovians, Chuvash, Estonians, Hungarians, and Finns: they carry additional ancestry seen as increased allele sharing with modern East Asian populations

As shown by these multiple lines of evidence, the pattern of genetic ancestry observed in north-eastern Europe is the result of admixture between populations from Siberia and populations from Europe.

This individual may be interested in learning about these data.

Race, Sex, Trump, Durocher

In der news.

Not an incel.  Good to see that all of the Joan of Arcs out there are properly rewarding only the most high-quality male biological specimens with abundant sexual access!  After all, we only want high-IQ geniuses, producing the most exquisite cultural artifacts and the most important discoveries and inventions for human progress, to be thus rewarded.

When we need to save “Black bodies,” then race suddenly exists, and has a biological basis.

See comment # 208 in response to Durocher. None of those comments are from me, by the way, in case anyone was wondering. There are others willing to point out Durocher’s unrelenting mendacity. There is no line drawn in Europe separating the areas of absolute purity from those exhibiting highly admixed cringing subhumans.  Further, as my posts about ancestry testing have demonstrated, you can model any group – or individual – as combinations of other groups, if for some reason you wanted to do so. In the early days of population genetics, it was all about modeling the European genepool as a mix of Asian and African; in the paper Durocher ejaculates about, we see a supplementary data table modeling populations as mixes of German, Saharawi, and Qatari. Only an idiot who thinks Ostara was a scientific journal would take any of that at literal face value, without nuance.

Trump the HBDer.  Getting more East Asian females in America will be a boon to two groups of White deviants.  First, sublimated pedophiles can indulge themselves with adult Asian females with no legal sanction.  Pederasts benefit also. Since there is minimal phenotypic difference between an adult Asian female and a pre-pubescent boy, sublimated pederasts can avoid legal and societal sanctions and indulge their predilection for man-boy love with adult Asian females.  A win-win, I suppose.

Meanwhile, Trump the White-hating criminal traitor wants to replace native professionals with an Asian overclass.  After all, there are no native geniuses, right Don?  Well, in the Trump family, that’s certainly true.

Hey, Pelosi, when are you going to impeach Trump, who is CLEARLY guilty of obstruction of justice?  Impeach, trial by Senate, indictment, conviction for the CRIME of obstruction of justice, and then time spent in the prison infirmary to repair certain injuries sustained while having intimate conversations with fellow inmates.

IMPEACH TRUMP!

The Mote in My Neighbor’s Eye

Writing for the anti-White Jew Unz site.

More Durocherite Nordicist shtick.  

Boring already. I always like how the fraud Durocher tries to maintain the pretense that he’s not a hardcore Nordicist.  After all, Southern Europeans may be low-IQ mongrels, but they are marginally – by a hair’s width – better than non-Whites.  And, after all, their Middle Eastern ethnocentrism may be useful.  So, let’s see – a “movement” heavily steeped in ultra-Nordicism and defined by animus toward “ethnics” is going to be more affected by what – Durocher’s constant Nordicist screeds or the weaselly squid ink at the end?

The following comment is what the “movement” takes away from Durocherism:

The American we all know has consisted of people from different races and ethnic backgrounds. Jackson’s country was free from Southern and Eastern European hordes. They have to go back.

By the way, “Durocher”- 

We show that the genetic makeup of northern Europe was shaped by migrations from Siberia that began at least 3500 years ago.

See this.

And this.

The most striking finding is a clear signal of admixture into northern Europe, with one ancestral population related to present-day Basques and Sardinians and the other related to present-day populations of northeast Asia and the Americas.

Some more.

Resulting in this.

And on an issue that is of course – of course! – completely unrelated, the temptation is strong in me to discuss the results of my own research – that is, stylometric analysis of nationalist writers/commentators (plural questionable), the results of which completely support what I noticed listening to “movement” podcasts.  But I’ll pass on that.  If the Nutzis are too stupid to realize the evidence of their eyes and ears, I won’t help them. The typical Nutzi activist has all the observational ability of Helen Keller and all the sensitivity of a brick.

Gene Wolfe is Dead and Other News

In der news.

Gene Wolfe is dead.  Also see this. 

Another Jack Vance phrase to describe female behavior – “erotic provocations.”  A female Vance character describing the behavior of her sister toward a male character – “…beguiling and provoking, teasing and tormenting.” One can look for clues in Vance’s background for his accurate portrayal of the female “contribution” to societal stability.

Vance and Wolfe are authors suitable for Type IIs. Tolkien, in contrast, is a Type I-style author.

Both Wolfe and Vance should be of interest to a “movement” allegedly interested in Faye’s “Archaeo-Futurism.” Men’s rights advocates and others on the Right can find much richness and nuance in the work of Wolfe and Vance.

Wolfe made a good point about cowardice vs. bravery.  According to Wolfe, the only real difference is that the coward fears the event before it happens, while the brave man feels fear after. So, the coward spends time dreading and obsessing about, say, combat, and becomes so fearful in advance that he shirks his responsibility when the time comes, while the brave man just acts without thinking about it, and, if he survives, becomes fearful about what he did after. Wolfe was a Korean War veteran, so he knew a thing or two about this subject.

A comment for Durocher from his own thread, emphasis added:

“Individual and ethnic amour-propre is a powerful motivator in the face of emotionally hurtful facts and hypotheses”

That was you and an Uraloid Anon Finn who don’t understand or lie about the ancient DNA. It’s also telling that you only respond with “interesting comment” to comments that stroke your ego. As if other facts are emotionally hurtful. That’s the problem people have with white nationalist liars like you and your cohort, not the actual science which has already destroyed many of your myths incidentally.

Btw, so others can check the dishonesty at play here:

“Western hunter gatherer natives that had a brain volume 1600 ccc , yamnaya or aryan around 1450ccc and anatolian farmers around 1300ccc”

Let’s accept those numbers. This means that the difference between WHG and Yamnaya was the same as between Yamnaya and Anatolian farmers. But guess which two populations contributed the most ancestry to all modern Europeans? But I suppose the Yamnayans didn’t “damagin permanently our genepool (sic)”.

And of course, our Uraloid supremacist has to come up with more ad-hoc reasoning to explain the Lithuanians, close to the biggest hunter-gatherer ancestry in Europe, or the Ukrainians: “If you exclude the slavs that were subjected to a different civilizational process”

Ah but the “elven Finns” weren’t subject to different civilizational process, they are “Fennoscandians” after all. It’s as if you arrive at the exact conclusion you already had in mind via a roundabout process innit? Even though Balts and Slavs have the most hunter-gatherer on average, they were subject to a “different civilizational process”. Meanwhile Western Europeans who have more Anatolian and less steppe and WHG on average got their civilizational prowess via some other ad-hoc process we’ll come up with on the spot. Maybe it’s “outbreeding” or one of the thousand ad-hoc explanations the HBDsphere has come up with huh?

Ron Unz:  Read this.

Roissy gets it right for once:

Ron Unz lies a lot in an article about the Alt-Right which he penned last year but reposted yesterday. I think the strawman-per-word ratio in his id-shaped rant is higher than anything I’ve read outside of a feminist tumblrrhea screed.

His main contention is that the “alt-right” are being deplatformed and de-personed because representatives (whoever they are) exaggerate the criminal threat of latino immigration, and the Soylicunt Valley nerdos who have been thrust into the role of Speech Police can’t tolerate the lies.

This is an utter inversion of the reality, which is that the Big Tech Poindexters can’t tolerate the truths which dissident outposts daily level against the corrupt Globohomo worldview and nation-dissolving agenda.

Never forget the “White nationalists” who are sell-outs to Unz, betraying their race for thirty pieces of silver.  We should be talking more about the Clueless Judas rather than the Yang Gang.

He doesn’t understand why Trump’s government persecutes militias guarding the border. Answer – Trump is a radical Far-Left SJW, seething with raw hatred toward White America.

Alt Right priapisms arise:

Chinese Nationalist Maiden
The problem for the West is that the USA might sooner or later be at war with the world’s prime Communist superpower, Red China. The West cannot afford to lose that war if it ever comes to pass, and neither can the West afford to lose the war over the control of the Western borders. Immigration needs to be brought back under the control of sound racial-demographic policy, and potential rivals such as Red China should not be made more powerful by Western companies..

That’s great.  Where do YOU live?  If it is in a Western country, please leave.  Or else you’re nothing but a vile hypocrite.

In Trump We Trust!  E Pluribus Awesome!

The testers:

…the DTC genetic testing company FamilyTreeDNA reached an agreement with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to grant the agency access to FamilyTreeDNA’s database of more than 1 million genetic records. At present, DTC genetic testing companies 23andMe and Ancestry still require court orders or valid search warrants for unsolicited third-party or law enforcement access to their genetic data records.

Listen to this.  I give Spencer credit for reaching out to the police and for considering legal action about that TV show clip.

The overall video had a good message, but there is a fundamental flaw there.  Unlike the White fear of Black mass violence, no one is really frightened of White nationalists, or any type of Whites whatsoever.  All the recent nonsense, the congressional hearing, the media stories, the statements – that’s all an excuse for censorship. They fear WN ideas (such as they are – that shows how memetically weak the Left really is), but not WNs themselves.  There is no real credible threat, outside of lone wolves and that’s nothing in the broader scheme of things.  The fear of the 1960s was of mass Black insurrection, riots and so forth. The only things White men today would riot for is more access to East Asian women and more Negro football on TV.

Yes, well, look Fat Don, since you’ve completely abandoned your White working class base, can you be surprised that others are targeting them?  Beware the Yang Gang!

The anti-vaxxers claim that the decrease in measles from, say, the 50’s to the 80s, was due to “better hygiene” and had nothing to do with vaccination.  What happened?  Did we start wallowing in filth?  Interesting, isn’t it, that – a coincidence, no doubt! – the spike in measles has occurred concomitant with the retards not vaccinating their children.

Sallis right again!  See title here.  See reality here.

Der Movement marches on:

I have for some time believed that it was Aryans who founded the Egyptian civilization after migrating from the Hyperborean center, due to the spirituality seeming to be quite Aryan. This also with the combination of some Pharaohs being depicted as blond-haired and blue-eyed and after opening tombs, they found that a Pharaoh even had red hair if I recall correctly. The question is: Is ancient Egyptian spirituality of an Aryan character, and if so, how could that be, if the Egyptians were of a non-Aryan stock?

Anyone who thinks that the findings of genetic archaeology will end “movement” fetishism is deluded.  When you are dealing with blind religious faith, facts are irrelevant.  If a careful genetic study proved without a shadow of a doubt that the Spartans were Nigerian, the Nutzis would crow; “Arthur Kemp was right!”

The Easter Bunny is Blackpilled

Notre Dame, asiatrices on the attack, and other news

The question to be asked about Notre Dame: Isn’t the easiest way to commit terrorism without punishment to make it look like an accident?  Especially when the authorities will be accommodating in the cover-up.

That’s where Der Movement, as usual, goes wrong. They expect to see pictures of someone dressed like a Bedouin, holding a flamethrower, and riding away on a camel. Instead, the reality is that an “accident” can be arraigned and everyone will just shrug and say “things happen.”  Of course, even it was an accident, there should still be liability for criminal negligence. But the whole story of exactly what happened, and who was responsible, is not something really in the news, is it?

Hey! I thought France has “hate speech laws?”  Durocher can blame it all on the Southern Europeans.  After all, they’re all Arabs, anyway.

This is just too funny.  An East Asian female – the ultimate paragon of humanity for the Alt Right – attacks the racial provenance of another of Der Movement’s most beloved fetish objects, the Vikings.  One fetish attacking another, what shall Der Movement do? 

Question: If Der Movement had to choose between Vikings and East Asian women, which would it be? On the one hand, Nordicism is inherent in the very fabric of the “movement;” on the other hand, if the Alt Righters would agree that Leif Erikson looked like boxer Mike Tyson, then Ms. Fuk Yu Gid would “ruv them rong rong time.” 

More of the same.  The existential meaning of Asians is hatred of Whites. HBD is a political movement whose ultimate objective is the subjugation of Whites to Jews and Asians.  Any “White nationalist” who writes for the Jewish HBDer Unz is a race traitor.

In any case, more evidence that the “Arctic Alliance” is nothing more or less than Derbyshire engaging in “measured groveling” (his words) to “Rosie.”

Common Sense Counselor tries to make sense of the Alt Right.  A well-meaning fellow, but naïve.  He actually respects the flotsam and jetsam that represent the “leadership” of the Alt Right?  Heh. Delusional. 

Analysis of Sallis:

Proofreader

Posted October 14, 2017 at 6:22 am 

Ted Sallis has long struck me as being a fascist of the puritan type, to use Maurice Bardèche’s characterization of René Binet. He can be a highly analytical and incisive thinker, but he’s also extremely irascible and obsessive in relation to a host of bêtes noires.

Fair enough, but one can be “irascible” and “obsessive” and still be right. What exactly am I wrong about?  One could argue that I could be more “political” in how I express my opinions, but “obsessive irascibility” does not equate to being wrong about facts or logic.

Our victory is just around the corner!  The people are with us!  Pepe!  Kek!  Beavis and Butthead sniggering!

Der Movement marches on. There is nothing wrong with that ADV per se, but how does Strom square being part of the same “movement” as The Yang Gang and the Unz Review?  Or maybe my premise is wrong and Strom rejects those who take thirty pieces of silver to attack White interests. I hope that is the case. An authentic national socialist (and cosmotheist) should have nothing in common with Yang’s UBI slaves or with the sniveling court goy collaborators of Unz.

Actual comment left at the Unz site:

Durocher,
Since you are in favor of conquests, you will be thrilled when we, the Jews, take control of the entire world. Such conquest will put an end to all trivial marauding that you are in support of. We will finally civilize all of you, Goyim.

Well put – after all that’s what HBD is all about, isn’t it?  Just add “Asian overlords” to the mix and you’re all set.  That’s the outcome of treasonous “WNs” throwing their lot in with Unz, to join the likes of Breezy Steve Sailer, Israeli General Greg Cochran, and Brownster Razib Khan.

One of the worst things about the Alt Right was its attempt to monopolize White nationalism, so when the Alt Right inevitably (as I predicted) collapsed, the damage done to White racial interests was enormous. Now, some of the same geniuses involved in that fiasco are now helping a wealthy Jew in his attempt to monopolize control over the expression of Far Right, White nationalist thought.  Any monopolization of a fragile “movement” is dangerous, but to be controlled by a rich Jew, with all the tribal instincts to seize key control points that allow for influencing the direction of Gentile society? That’s a recipe for unmitigated disaster.  How could it not be?

The people involved are either moronic to the point of retardation or they are traitors.  

 

Roissy:

…I find it hard to lay much blame for the MAGA stall-out (and in parts, reversal) at Trump’s feet…

I knew Roissy’s previous harsh criticism of Trump wouldn’t last long.  After all, given sufficient time since his last bout of onanism over a gif of Trump strutting like Vince McMahon and the sexual pressure builds up. He has to justify his next round of onanistic Trumpian delight, and, to assuage his guilt, pretends things aren’t that bad.

Sure, Trump didn’t mention Whites in his State of the Union address, but mentioned virtually every other group.  Obviously, Trump’s speeches gets vetted by liberal circuit court judges, who have veto power over what he says.

Trump’s call for more legal immigration likewise was imposed on him by liberal judges. That’s how those things work. MAGA! Pepe!  Kek!

Trump doing absolutely nothing about a domestic terrorist group attacking his own supporters – obviously that’s the dastardly swamp as well.  Trump’s DOJ persecuting his own supporters for the “crime” of defending themselves against the terrorists – that’s also due to the embedded “swamp.”

No doubt, all those liberal judges who are “blocking the MAGA agenda” cause Trump to be pitifully slavish to Israel, and to cave in to China on trade.  The lack of any infrastructure projects is also due to “the swamp.”

And, worst, of all, a group of “liberal judges” are standing in front of the local DC MacDonald’s and they prevent Trump from getting his Big Macs.

Welcome to Trump’s America: A Far-Left Dystopia.

Yes, because of people like you.

Answering Durocher

A response.

The dishonest Durocher writes

I received some interesting comments as well as some pushback for my previous article summarizing a scientific study showing correlations between brain shape/size and regional European ancestry. This is understandable given the sensitivity of the topic. Individual and ethnic amour-propre is a powerful motivator in the face of emotionally hurtful facts and hypotheses. However, as I like to say, the science is coming, ready or not, whether people like it or not, whether these fit with the current ideological fashions or not. I am confident that the progress of science and free discussion on the Internet will lead to an increase in human consciousness and apprehension of the truth.

Yes, indeed, the science is coming, ready or not, and I’m sure that the sweatily obsessed “movement” of which you are a part would be interested in knowing the truth.  Or perhaps not. Genetic archaeology is not going to be kind to Der Movement and its theories, I believe.


Two points. First, the above comment of Durocher comes from a post (at the anti-White Jew Unz blog of course) primarily discussing a paper analyzing cortical geometry among the major racial groups – a more generalized look at the subject of Durocher’s previous foray into the subject. Of course, this more generalized paper was also discussed at my original blog post from which Durocher was alerted to the intra-European study.  But, also of course, after my criticisms of him over the last few days, Le Grand Frog this time omits reference to my original post. Injured individual amour-propre perhaps?


Second, Durocher is being typically dishonest in his characterization of his critics. I’ve read the comments at the Unz blog, and I am or course aware of what I have written here.  None of these people are attacking the actual science. No one – unless I missed a comment among the 100+ there – critiqued the actual original paper and its findings. The conclusions about intra-European brain differences were not substantially challenged. No one, you pathetic weasel, is avoiding truth or dismissing objective scientific facts. Instead people are criticizing Durocher’s over-interpretation, hand-waving “spin” to dismiss contrary facts (avoiding truth?), and his overall hyper-Nordicist “take”on the science. That Durocher already has a well-established reputation for being a Nordicist – and also dishonestly denies it in Kempian fashion – adds to the perception of an underlying racio-political agenda, rather than a dispassionate discussion of data. People are not objecting to facts, but to Durocher’s tendentious reading of those facts.


By the way, Durocher you won’t find any avoidance of racial and ethnic facts at EGI Notes because as you wrote:

I want to thank Ted Sallis for bringing attention to a fascinating study…

This blog has always been about getting to the facts about race and ethnicity, regardless of what it says about one group or another.  Your post – complete with groundless speculation and a juvenile picture of an anti-WN Austrian playing a fictional barbarian in a Hollywood move – is not “science” or “truth.” If your snide comments are directed at me, then you expose yourself as a fool, having learned about the study in question from my own work.

If the snide comments were instead about those criticizing you at the Jew Unz blog, then the fact that others criticize aspects of your post is not necessarily an indication of “individual and ethnic amour-propre” but instead – who knows? – maybe they look at other information and have their own hypotheses and interpretations that differ from your own. Or are the defensive comments by you quoted above a reflection of your own “individual and ethnic amour-propre?” Are you unable to take criticism without resorting to ad hominem?  

I know that the French have a reputation for being obnoxiously arrogant – related to brain structure, perhaps? – but, maybe, just maybe, your own interpretations and hypotheses are not correct, not reflections of science and reality, and, maybe, just maybe, the opinions of others are not merely “individual and ethnic amour-propre” attempting to avoid your hard truths. Maybe the comments made by others have some degree of validity on their own merits.
