My regular readers pretty much know what to expect from me. All you’ve come to appreciate will continue here. For new readers, I’ve written several gateway/introductory postings in the past, so I will recite them here.
First of all, if you’re completely new to the topic of Human Bio Diversity (HBD), which is what I’ll primarily will be talking about here, please see a thorough (but soft) introduction to the matter that I’ve written:
The basic fact of the matter is that you’re being lied to – every day. Mainstream discourse, including the media (and a good part of the scientific establishment itself) spreads false information. Whether it be on IQ, race, heredity, parenting, diet, health, lifestyle, or homosexuality, complete rubbish rules the day. I intend to make a meager effect to remedy that in this column.
To learn about me, please see my About Me page. There I talk a little about my background as well as provide a roadmap to my earlier publications, including the key pieces new readers should see.
My earlier posting 100 Blog Posts – Reflection on HBD Blogging and What Lies Ahead reviews the topics I’ve talked about in the beginning, including fertility trends, and health and lifestyle wisdom.
My post 200 Blog Posts – Everything You Need to Know (To Start) is just that. Here I review the topics I’ve discussed in the preceding 100 posts, including the matter of guns and violence, the American Nations (the regional ethno/cultural/political divides across North America), and the problems with some of the people who talk about this topic.
About those American Nations, my page American Nations Series indexes the posts I’ve written based on the books American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America by Colin Woodard and Albion’s Seed: Four British Folkways in America by David Hackett Fischer.
I’ve mentioned things you’re being lied to about. One of them is parenting. Did you know that parenting (beyond ensuring your children are healthy and safe and have basic human interaction) has no real impact on how children turn out as adults? That’s right. Read all about it:
Now, the mainstream, accepted explanation for all manner of human behavioral variation, including individual and group differences, is some sort of social conditional or some sort of “environmental” effect. The one exception is sexual orientation, where we’re assured that it is 100% inborn and genetically inherited. Well, it turns out that that is not true. Indeed, this hard to reconcile with the fact that male twins are discordant for sexual orientation at least 75% of the time. See:
Also, you may want to see some of my most recent postings, such as on The Rise of Universalism (which includes the surge in regard for the welfare of people from all walks of life, like the recent push for gay rights all the way up to “microaggressions”), on National Prosperity (what causes it?), and on the facts that “Ethnic Genetic Interests” Do Not Exist (Neither Does Group Selection).
That biology impacts human behavior – including differences in behavior (both between individuals and between groups) is a given. This follows from the fact that evolution applies to human beings. Unfortunately, Western society is generally in a state of denial about this. One must deny important facts in order to ignore/marginalize biology and inherited group differences. This is tantamount to a form of creationism – liberal creationism, as it’s been called. No, evolution acts upon human beings just like all other forms of life, and continues to do so right up to the present time (as physicist Gregory Cochran said, “every society selects for something“).
I welcome commenters. My comment policy is fairly simple. Be respectful, please be ready to support your case upon request, and generally be cool. After a few good comments I’ll give you pre-approval so your comment won’t have to wait around in moderation. Be cool with me I’ll be cool with you, but by all means I welcome spirited debate.
