In his latest VDARE column, John Derbyshire has written a glowing discussion of yours truly: John Derbyshire On JayMan—A Righteous Jamaican-American | VDARE.COM Well... more on that shortly. That is my thing. A couple of my tweets on the matter shoul
Courtesy "misdreavus," "cold russian," and HBD which (correctly) responded "cold HBD for one am fully aware that a big part of the backlash against behavioral genetics and HBD (from both the Left and Right) comes because it clashes with the self concept of some people. One issue is the degree of "control" one feels one... Read More
"Misdreavus" was having a field day on Twitter yesterday. Here are some the products of that: For the record, "misdreavus" is non-White, like me. He is also the coup de grâce about that? These are basically the running themes on my blog, and other places in the HBD-space. As we've seen with "misdreavus's" commentary previously... Read More
Colin Woodard's book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America, is currently generating a lot of buzz.

  Forgive the return of white-on-black text... :)
Here is an excellent talk by Sam Harris on the non-existence of free will, as discussed in his book Free Will is an excellent summation of why free will does not exist, and why our perception of it is an illusion, as I've discussed before. There is one point of exception I'd take with his... Read More
A brilliant little photo, courtesy of commentor asdf (thanks!): Previously: HBD and Atheism and What if it’s not their fault? The myth of free will.
As some of you know, and probably most of you don't, I am an atheist. It is the only logical conclusion based on the principle of demanding proof before regarding things as true, as many would tell you (also here). That said, some intellectuals would argue that not believing in any sort of creative force... Read More
Fresh stuff! New Blog Post #3! So in my last blog posts we learned about the role of heredity in determining behavior and the non-affect of parenting and the family environment on behavioral traits. But most of us feel we are in control of ourselves (I suppose except when it comes to the “scars” parents... Read More
