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!
