First, about autism, emphasis added:
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) manifests as alterations in complex human behaviors including social communication and stereotypies. In addition to genetic risks, the gut microbiome differs between typically developing (TD) and ASD individuals, though it remains unclear whether the microbiome contributes to symptoms. We transplanted gut microbiota from human donors with ASD or TD controls into germ-free mice and reveal that colonization with ASD microbiota is sufficient to induce hallmark autistic behaviors. The brains of mice colonized with ASD microbiota display alternative splicing of ASD-relevant genes. Microbiome and metabolome profiles of mice harboring human microbiota predict that specific bacterial taxa and their metabolites modulate ASD behaviors. Indeed, treatment of an ASD mouse model with candidate microbial metabolites improves behavioral abnormalities and modulates neuronal excitability in the brain. We propose that the gut microbiota regulates behaviors in mice via production of neuroactive metabolites, suggesting that gut-brain connections contribute to the pathophysiology of ASD.
So, instead of giving mice MMR vaccinations to induce autism, the “gut microbiota” of autistic humans was sufficient to do the job, including alterations of “alternative splicing of ASD-relevant genes” in the mouse brains.
What could affect the “gut microbiota?” There’s the initial colonization during gestation, birth, and early years of life. There is diet. And there is antibiotic use. Conspicuously missing from that list are the “Big Pharma” vaccines injected by dastardly “Jew doctors.” But alas, the festering microbial environment of “Mama,” the lousy diets, and those tasty pink-colored antibiotic spoonfuls (given liberally, even for viral infections against which they are useless) are not “scary needles,” so it’s all A-OK! After all, those scary injections are violating our bodily integrity and contaminating our precious bodily fluids, so we can’t have that! Just take dem dere pills and spoonfuls, eat dat dere junk food, and it’ll all be fine! Also, make sure to expose your child’s amygdala to bizarre NEC phenotypes as well. What could go wrong?
Lewontin’s Fallacy and “genetic variation within vs. between” mentioned here. Of course, several months ago, EGI Notes posted a comprehensive refutation of Lewontin, demonstrating, using genetic data and calculations, that ANY human group, no matter how randomly chosen, will always exhibit more genetic variation within than between. Indeed, random groupings of Whites and Blacks mixed together will also demonstrate the same pattern – conclusively showing that the pattern is due to random distribution of genetic variation among all humans, with no relevance to racial classification whatsoever. A comparison of human racial Fst to that of dog breeds was also discussed.
That post got ZERO attention from Der Movement; after all, the Quota Queens have circled the wagons and have established a cordon sanitaire around the Sallis Groupuscule, lest I threaten their tin cup panhandling and their by-birthright-affirmative-action-positions.
Comment about Spengler from Counter-Currents:
BroncoColoradoPosted June 5, 2019 at 2:16 pm | PermalinkSpengler deserves, but does not receive, more criticism from rightist sources. As has been mentioned in other posts two other philosophers of history, Piritim Sorokin and Lawrence Brown have both ably demonstrated the inaccuracy and danger in using biological metaphors to describe the development of a culture.Although Spengler was a teacher of mathematics his literary style is not precise or particularly clear, he writes more as a poet than as a scientist. A scientist with desire to explain history should use his training to identify the causes for a culture taking a particular development path, and not ascribe that path to a destiny that is chosen for it. Such a description is too mystical. In some ways Spengler’s outlook has parallels with his near contemporary Hans Driesch and his thoughts related to biological determinism as observed in embryos.We need to distance ourselves from Spengler’s brand of determinism. History is open-ended, and it is imperative that we change roads at the next off-ramp, if one isn’t in sight then prepare for some off road driving.
Revilo Oliver, many years ago, critiqued Spengler; I have done so more recently. Of course, my critique was ignored by Der Movement as well. Surprise!
Spencer is right. But he’s not calling out the appropriate people. David French? Pshaw! As Derb would say. Let’s see. I can think of two prominent racialist types who have, in recent months, publicly stated that we are winning and that our victory is inevitable. One of these is someone Spencer despises (and vice versa). Then we had this:
Jared Taylor’s short answer to “why we are winning” was “because we’re right and our opponents are wrong.”
Ball in your court, Mr. Spencer.
Der Movement likes to talk about “soyboys,” but based on recent findings, we had better talk about “beer bros” instead. Is this the reason why the Type I Nutzis are so inept? Is it that all of the “Sieg Heil and pass the beer” crowd are drenched in estrogen? Adjust those bra straps, fellas!
