Thanks to certain recent events, I wanted to have you guys look at an excerpt from Judith Rich Harris's The Nurture Assumption. This is here to serve as a reminder to certain people (you know who you are, if not, don't worry): In Chapter 3 I recounted some stories of identical twins separated in infancy... Read More
A new study (recently discussed by Steve Sailer) has found that the children of gay and lesbian parents have a lower high school graduation rate than those of straight parents. The finding of this study seems straightforward – indeed, I was able to say it in a sentence. However, the conclusions we are able to... Read More
Slate recently featured an article written by Roy F. Baumeister, Do You Really Have Free Will? In it, he claims that human do indeed have free will, something that regular readers will know that I have emphatically argued against. Baumeister doesn't make any supernatural appeals in this article; he does not appeal to some sort... Read More
So on tonight's (9/16/13) NBC Nightly News, they featured an interview with the chief medical officer of one the D.C. hospitals that received the victims of the Navy Yard shooting.

The Beginning 2. Fertility 3. Immigration and the economy 4.... Read More
Post edited (9/28/2012), see below! A new study was released, discussed by Ilana Yurkiewicz at her Scientific American blog, that seems to conclusively prove that gender bias in the sciences does exist. The article describes the challenges involved in studying this and how these challenges were overcome: It’s tough to prove gender bias. In a... Read More
Steven Pinker, a great academic, and whose 2002 book The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature introduced me to hereditarian explanations for human behavior (and which is required reading for anyone with no familiarity with the role that genes play in human behavior) has recently sent a note to Ron Unz attacking his...

EDIT: Post updated, 3/17/14. See below! Welcome to my blog! New Blog post #1! So I moved over from Blogger.com because it didn’t allow people to comment without signing in. Why would I want to restrict people that way? So this post is mostly copied from that site with a few changes. This will be... Read More
