The New York Times recently published an opinion piece by its gun-grabbing, open borders in-house “conservative” columnist Bret Stephens asserting that Ashkenazi Jews are an elite race by nature of their superior hereditary, culture and soul.

For sure, there are Jews of exceptional intellect and ability, but this is true for most races. Stephen’s dictation is an evacuation straight from the bowels of Zionist ideology into the minds of the liberal status quo beneath his feet. His inference is the contention that Jewish domination of Western cultural, economic and political choke points is a product of natural selection rather than nepotism and propaganda.

A cursory glance of history puts the Jews to shame.

When it comes to innovation, no nation has punched outside of its weight class like Scotland. With a modern population of 4.5 million and less than a million in England, Scots have gifted mankind with radar technology, Penicillin, the telephone, the vacuum flask and much more. Unlike abstractions like Marxism, Freudianism and Relativity, these inventions have drastically improved the lives of all human beings and taken civilization to new heights.

In the sciences, Stephens points to Jews winning Nobel prizes at a disproportionate rate as evidence of their genius. Yet it is Swedes, with a population smaller than Jewry, who have discovered 20 elements on the Periodic Table, only slightly trailing the United Kingdom (24) and America (21) in the race to understand the hidden nuances of the world around us.

As a complement to Nordic scientific prowess, the smallest branch of the Latin-Mediterranean race, Portugal – a nation which during the 1500s had a population of less than 2 million – rose to prominence in the Age of Discovery, helping man fill an otherwise blank map of the globe.

Despite being a tiny sliver of land off the Iberian peninsula surrounded by hostile powers, Portugal had by the 16th century developed ships that shattered European limitations in sea travel (the equivalent of going to space at the time) to circumnavigated Earth and split claims to much of the newly discovered world with Spain at the Treaty of Tordesillas. The plucky Portuguese had a presence seemingly everywhere, with holdings and ports as far as Japan and India, not to mention permanent cultural and racial imprints in Africa and Latin America.

What, in comparison, are the major achievements of the booming Ashkenazi Jewish population during this time period? They may have a presence on every continent today, but only thanks to infrastructure and discoveries by nations like Portugal.

The biggest hole in the contemporary race theories Stephens quotes, by delineating Ashkenazis from Sephardics, is that the rise and fall in prominence of the two groups coincides with the arc of their hosts. When Latins ruled the world, it was Sephardics (including those expelled from Spain) who composed the elite of world Jewry in Britain, Holland, and so on. With Anglo-Saxon powers, Germany and the ethnic go-between of France taking Spain and Portugal’s place as superpowers, suddenly Ashkenazis woke up to find themselves in the driver’s seat. This suggests civilizational parasitism, not independent genius.

We can see other examples of Jewish underachievement in the Classical world. New studies show that the Roman Empire at its peak had a citizen population of 5 million, while estimates of the Jewish population in times before Christ range from 3 to 8 million (Josephus claimed 1.1 million Jews died during the First Roman-Jewish War alone). Jews are purported to have had large armies and empires, but they were largely pastoralists who shared more in common with the Mongols in their violent disdain for high culture and intolerance, leaving behind few literary or technological achievements. Even the Western Wall, which Jews claim is their ancient Temple, is nothing more than the remnant of a Roman army fort.

The Myth of Einstein and “Relativity Hype”

Stephens emphasizes the cultural meme of Albert Einstein as the core evidence demonstrating the intellectual prowess of the Jews.

Jews are indeed highly overrepresented as Nobel Prize winners in the world of physics, where many of the theories are abstract and difficult (if not impossible) to prove or disprove, but are not very well represented in the most significant developments in the field in the last three decades: Quantum Teleportation (one Jew out of six authors), the Bose-Einstein Condensate (independently discovered by the Indian Satyendra Nath Bose yet credited to Einstein who merely reiterated the work afterwards), the “God Particle” (Peter Higgs and Francois Englert), etc.

The Einstein question thus personifies the problem with claims of Jewish superiority.

The theory of relativity was controversial inside the European scientific community when it was released in 1905 without peer review. Nobel Prize winning German physicists Johannes Stark and Philipp Lenard were open opponents of it due to what they saw as hijacking physics away from illustrative and intuitive norms towards unfalsifiable abstractions and overemphasis on math.

The German physics community’s main issue with the Einstein phenomenon was not just the theory, but how normal scientific standards were suspended to declare Einstein the new Copernicus.

This declaration was made by Einstein’s (a Zionist activist deeply integrated with pan-Jewry) fellow Jews in the press, which critics dubbed “relativity hype.” This both surprised and infuriated his colleagues. A book released in 1924 by renown physicist Ernst Gehrcke, “The Mass Suggestion of Relativity Theory,” recorded 5,000 newspaper articles affirming with no proof that Einstein had shattered all previous notions in classical physics despite the jury still being out among many of his most respected peers.

Einstein’s genius is the work of publicists and mass suggestion, in other words. Additionally, Einstein did not discover relativity, but merely reconstituted discoveries by Joseph Larmor (released in 1897 and work by Henri Poincare (published in 1898), both who abided by classical scientific norms. Whatever the merits or demerits of E=mc2, it was the Italian Galileo Galilei who first theorized about relativity in 1632. When confronted with these facts or dissenting opinions throughout his career, Einstein’s go-to tactic was to take to the newspapers that loved him and accuse his detractors of “anti-Semitism.”

With modern technology, the theory of relativity has been challenged time and time again. Every year a new scientist outside of the oxygen-deprived and politicized Western academy, like in India or Russia, provides mathematical or even common sense (like mass and energy being interchangeable) wrenches in the relativity machine, at least as Einstein proposed it. In 2011, the highly respected CERN caused waves in the media by seemingly disproving the core arguments attributed to Einstein when neutrinos sped faster than light during a high-tech experiment.

After outcry and dismay from certain gatekeepers in academia and the media, CERN claimed that a cable in their machine was loose and the previous results were not recreated after adjustment. While this incident alone does not prove an attempt to protect Einstein’s legacy, fear within the scientific community of losing grants in resource-starved physics research by making discoveries financial and political kingmakers do not like should not be dismissed either.

Today, Albert Einstein’s reputation as the smartest man who ever lived is bolstered by a seemingly infinite number of books, TV shows, and movies celebrating his life and supposed achievements – far more than any other scientist in history. Jews excel in physics on paper but it was Einstein’s “common sense” oriented scientific opponents in the Third Reich that first developed the rocket technology that allowed us to reach space.

While this author is out of his element when it comes to the nuts and bolts of relativity, one looks at the Jewish spirit’s replacement of reason and intuition with abstraction and relativism in other fields like the arts, anthropology, culture of critique or music, and questions should arise regarding whether Einstein’s similar approach towards Physics has been more of a retarding arbitrary rule scientists are pressured to work within the confines of rather than the groundbreaking accomplishment we are expected to take for granted. Would this supposed “consensus” still be so if Germany had won the Second World War and science was freed of top-down Jewish pressure from people like Bret Stephens?

It is generally assumed that the hard sciences are free from political ideology, but challenging the Einstein myth provokes the same institutional reaction as James Watson affirming the biology of race (outside of the Jewish superiority context Bret Stephens and the New York Times has deemed appropriate). We are convinced that Jews are our masters only because celebrating the group-achievements of far more accomplished Europeans is forbidden by the establishment.

The brilliance of the plagiarist Einstein embodies the nature of Stephens’ broader patronizing claims of born-to-rule Jewish excellence: it may look like a diamond, but it’s synthetic like a cubic zirconia.

  1. Guy out-and-out contradicts himself at the end there, while pretending to prove that he’s not contradicting himself–and failing.

    He hates genetic determinism in one instance, and loves it in another. All depending entirely and wholly on his prejudices and nothing more.

    Oh, the history of physics was interesting enough. I’m not saying the whole article’s bad. Just the conclusion, which sounds kind of tacked on so that the article that seems to refute the endless stream of pro-genetic articles on here can be shoehorned in amongst them.

    JUDAISTS WIN NOBLE PRIZES THE OLD FASHIONED WAY—THEY STEAL THEM.

    Thanks, Sir. So right.

    This self-adulating Jewish crook Stephens of the NYT is so shameless. Only Judaists are so shameless, engaging in lying self adulation.

    Judaists are stealing Nobel prizes and other prizes by blackmailing these committees. The Mossad probably has photos of these members falling into the honey trap, so they have no choice but to give all the prizes to the Judaists or be exposed.

    I can’t think of one great invention or product I use daily for which I can thank the Judaists. None. They are all frauds. To cite Einstein, a known plagiarist, and a sexual predator, who was preying on his cousins, is a sign that Judaists are getting desperate.

  3. The Jews were the moneybags behind many of these inventions and developments so I suppose they could claim credit for even more. On the other hand, many useful inventions and endeavours probably never saw the light of day because Jewish financiers didn’t think they could profit from them or for whatever reason refused to back them. European civilisation could have advanced even more without them. Or maybe not. In the world as it is it takes money as well as brains to get things done. And we all know who’s got the money.

    Thanks to the half-English House of Avis. Prince Henry’s mother was English, with connections to John of Gaunt and Geoffrey Chaucer. England also had a large hand in Portugal’s success in marketing their wine abroad.

    Yes, the Portuguese were impressve. But they had help. Hybrid vigo(u)r!

    With a modern population of 4.5 million and less than a million in England, Scots have gifted mankind with radar technology, Penicillin, the telephone, the vacuum flask and much more.

    And gun control. Nobody grabs guns like the Scots. One of their pederasts shoots a bunch of bairns, and they not only seize all their own pistols, but all of England and Wales’s, too. Georgina Geikie, who, despite her Scottish names, lived about as far from Scotland as you can in the UK (Devon), was forced to leave for the Continent to practice her sport for the 2012 Olympics– scheduled in her own country!

    Like most Americans, I’d rather live under Israel’s gun laws than Scotland’s. I suppose that makes me a “Zionist”.

    Making generalisations is quite scientific. It is then finding the reasons behind these generalisations that is open to discussion.

    Anyway, slightly off topic, but since we’re with the Jews maybe not, blacks are not relenting in their attacks on Jews in US:

    https://www.rt.com/usa/477032-monsey-synagogue-attack-stabbing/

    I was wondering if Trump’s recognition of Khazar converts to Judaism as a “nation” may not be responsible for some of these recent attacks. He’s actually thereby giving privilege to Khazarian converts over the black converts to Judaism who are presumably not covered by his latest executive order. So OK, the Khazarians converted earlier to Judaism, but on the other hand the black Hebrews claim they are the originals – so there’s that. I haven’t yet come across any discussion in the media that Trump’s order may have actually enraged the black Hebrews and their supporters, and that this could be the direct consequence of his action. It doesn’t look as if the Guardian Angels or the NYPD patrols are very effective in stopping these attacks.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/guardian-angels-patrol-jewish-neighborhoods-new-york-city-after-recent-n1108251

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/dec/27/new-york-antisemitic-attacks-police-hate-

    And then it gets more ridiculous as these attacks on Khazars by blacks are labelled as “anti-semitic” hate crimes when neither group are truly semites.

  8. Striker, you’re covering a large amount of ground, enough for 5 or 6 articles. So take 5 or 6 articles to deal with the material
    A couple of points.

    We can see other examples of Jewish underachievement in the Classical world. New studies show that the Roman Empire at its peak had a population of 5 million, while estimates of the Jewish population in times before Christ range from 3 to 8 million (Josephus claimed 1.1 million Jews died during the First Roman-Jewish War alone).

    At its maximum in the 1st Century AD, Ancient Rome had a population between 1 and 2 million ( consensus 1.4 million) and Italy had a population of 10 or more million. Romania – the Roman Empire – certainly had 100 million or more.
    Ancient Judaism was a vigorous religion with millions of adherents in the Levant, Egypt and Arabia. Israel has a population of 8.5 million, of whom 6.3 million are Jews. Were there more Jews then than in modern Israel. Quite possibly.

    As regards the Einstein Industry, as I call it, one of the very few to publically oppose it during Einstein’s lifetime was E T Whittaker, long time Professor of Mathematics at Edinburgh University and distinguished Historian of Science.

    In 1910, Whittaker wrote A History of the Theories of Aether and Electricity, which gave a very detailed account of the aether theories from René Descartes to Hendrik Lorentz and Albert Einstein, including the contributions of Hermann Minkowski, and which made Whittaker a respected historian of science.

    In 1951 (Vol. 1) and 1953 (Vol. 2), he published an extended and revised edition of his book in two volumes. The second volume contains some interesting historical remarks. For example, it contains a chapter named “The Relativity Theory of Poincaré and Lorentz”, where Whittaker credited Henri Poincaré and Lorentz for developing special relativity, and especially alluded to Lorentz’s 1904 paper (dated by Whittaker as 1903), Poincaré’s St. Louis speech (The Principles of Mathematical Physics) of September 1904, and Poincaré’s June 1905 paper.[12] He attributed to Einstein’s special relativity paper only little importance, which he said “set forth the relativity theory of Poincaré and Lorentz with some amplifications, and which attracted much attention”, and he credited Einstein only with being the first to publish the correct relativistic formulas for relativistic aberration and the Doppler effect. He also attributed the formula E = m c 2 {\displaystyle E=mc^{2}} E=mc^{2} to Poincaré.

    Obviously, the Einstein Industry did not take this lying down and have attempted to quash it. No doubt, if a present day Historian of Science were to produce something similar today, he might quickly find himself out of his academic post.

  11. Curious says:

    Jewish achievement didn’t start in earnest until after 1850 and especially after 1900, when the West was at its apogee. It is insincere to claim all they did was either ideological monstocities like Freudianism or Marxism, though they certainly had a disproportinate role in these offshoots.

    A better argument would have been that Jewish achievement – while real – could not take off on its own, but had to use Western civilisation as its umbrella. And, more crucially, that Western civ did *not* need Jews for its flourishing (which is an argument you sometimes hear from some Jewish chauvinists).

    Kevin MacDonald has pointed out that even accounting for the disproportinate Jewish representation at the IQ > 130 range (where the true shakers and movers of any society reside), you still wouldn’t get as many Jews in positions of influence, meaning that nepotism did have an outsized role (this is especially true in the media). Nevertheless, to say their influence is mostly due to nepotism is surely also false.

    Would be nice if Striker’s understandable antagonism wouldn’t get the better of him and make him write such unbalanced pieces in the future.

    When Ron Unz tells us that he has just studied some historical subject for a few weeks, I guess he is excusing himself for occasional errors. But he has a diploma in Physics which should be worth for something, even if he remembers little of the specifics. There is no excuse for publishing this garbage.

    Jews are excellent at double think. They will crow about how smart they are, and then point and sputter when you talk about the intelligence of other groups.

    Where Jews are significant under-achievers is in the arts. In painting, there’s Rothko and his blobs, Balthus and his creepy drooling over pre-pubescent girls, and Lucien Freud’s lovingly detailed portraits of people who look like decaying corpses.

    I’ve read some good European Jewish authors, but American Jewish authors don’t impress me. The big three of post-war fiction (Roth, Malamud, and Bellow) I find to be unreadable.

    Not for nothing did Striker choose “brilliance” in his headline. It is comical how often Jews use the word “brilliant” to describe each other’s work.

  17. Mulegino1 says:

    What is “brilliance” to the Jews is mere tacky ostentation to those with a modicum of taste, cultivation and a knowledge of history.

    The archetypal Jew is not an intellectual luminary or a sage, but a shameless self-promoter and clever street hustler. Einstein illustrated this with respect to physics as did Freud with respect to psychology.

    Jewry never excelled at any transcendent endeavor- whether in the arts, sciences, or the humanities- because it is bound to the worship of merely this-worldly success, which it measures with a monomaniacal quest for profit. In this age of Mammon, the Jew is preeminent not because of any inherent genius or brilliance, but because he swims in it as in his natural element, and the gentiles- with the obvious exceptions of the Chinese and other entirely alien groups- are as fish out of water.

    Jews were heavily involved in the Portuguese and Iberian Age of Exploration, often as Conversos and crypto-Jews. They financed the expeditions and did much of the critical cartography and navigation work. They went on the expeditions and were many of the colonial settlers and traders in the New World.

    For example, the Royal Astronomer to King John II of Portugal was a Jew named Abraham Zacuto. Zacuto’s astrolabe and navigation tables were used by Vasco da Gama on his expeditions. Da Gama and his crew were trained by Zacuto before their voyages.

    “Jews excel in physics on paper but it was Einstein’s “common sense” oriented scientific opponents in the Third Reich that first developed the rocket technology that allowed us to reach space.” I would add to that, it was the German chemist Otto Hahn that discovered nuclear fission in 1938 (for which he received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1944) that prompted Einstein’s letter to FDR encouraging the US to research building an atomic bomb so it could be dropped on Einstein’s fellow Germans, taking the usual stance that Jews are not a race and Judaism is their religion for a moment. Jews are still upset today at this, claiming for almost 70 years that the Austrian Jew Lise Meitner should have also received the Nobel Prize. The Nobel Prize committee disagreed and only gave it to Hahn.

    In addition to this, many people seem to be under the strange impression that Germans had nothing to do with Germany’s greatness. I think this is due to several things. The general anti-German feeling of Germany’s former enemies that didn’t want to give their hated enemy credit for anything, which continued for decades after the wars (and is still present), the usual Jewish eagerness to promote themselves (they call themselves the “chosen people”) and the fact that Jews did contribute to German science a great deal more than the size of their populatio9n would suggest, starting in the late 19th century. But Germans had been a science, mathematics and philosophy center for centuries before Jews became involved in these fields in the late 19th century and the only estimate I have ever heard of the breakdown of German Christians to Jews winning Nobel Prizes is that German Christians won about 2/3 of Germany’s Nobel Prizes and German Jews won about 1/3. I suspect that is about right.

    But a another fact suggests something else is at play here. Germany had a small Jewish population, about 500,000 Jews. Poland had about 3 million Jews and not one of them received a Nobel Prize. Russia and then the USSR had far more Jews than Germany, at least 1.5 million and no Nobel Prize recipients before 1945, the US also had a much bigger population of Jews than Germany but until 1945, the USA received few Nobel Prizes, except for a few the recently arrived (mostly) Jews received in the 1940’s as Americans. While science and philosophy was always a major part of German culture, Jews only entered those fields more recently and they soon became an outsized contributr to those fields. I wonder how much of that was due to talent and how much was due to Jewish ethnocentrism and favoritism, which they don’t appear to be shy about at all. But interestingly, everything I read about Germany thru 1945 were Jews complaints that Germans kept Jews out of those fields and “anti-Semitism” keeping them down, including Einstein down, despite their enormous success and garnering a lot of the glory for German science.

    This idea’s been kicking around forever, and it’s probably bunkum. Not that it’s not fun. First time I heard it, the story was that the Templar Knights were condemned and round up by the Pope and the King of France, Philip the Fair, but Scotland refused to kowtow to the Vatican (and France) and let the Templar refugees in to Scotland. As it happens, the Templars are/were mostly Jewish and… well, it gets complicated.

    True or false? Not sure. Austria has a similar issue: Many Jewish Nobel Prize winners, subtract the Jews, not many at all. This hinges on what you think the Nobel is worth. Any outfit that can give Teddy Roosevelt and Barack Obama the Nobel Peace Prize is, at minimum, suspect.

    The author and most the commenters here appear to have a very shallow understanding of even first year college physics……wrong ideas can prevail for many centuries. For example, Aristotle promoted the idea that a body in motion would eventually slow down and stop of its own accord. This idea passed for wisdom for two millennia even though it is the exact opposite of reality, as shown by Galileo and Newton. In a vacuum, bodies in motion stay in motion until impeded by something. Likewise, ideas as to the fixed nature of motion, time, and space prevailed until Einstein came along. He restated the glaringly obvious…….describing motion depends on the frame of reference of the observer i.e. special relativity as a simple extension of geometry For example, the famous thought experiment of a bullet penetrating a rising accelerating elevator…..whether the bullet travels in a straight or curved path depends on whether the observer is inside or outside the elevator. Likewise, Einstein’s conception of general relativity flows from his observation that the inertial force felt inside an accelerating vehicle is very similar to the force of gravity. Einstein may have been a tireless self-promoter (the bicycle pics, the hair, the lack of socks, E=MC2, etc) and his general theory of relativity may have been a stretch with its convoluted bending interplay of time and space…..but he did revolutionize the physical sciences and how we conceive of reality.

    Umm… I’m just going to make a couple of minor comments. In the ancient world it was indeed true that the Jews were not noted for intelligence. At least some commentators have suggested that the high mean intelligence of European-ancestry jews is due to social selection for intelligence in the post-Roman empire world.

    And I know a lot of jewish people in science, and no, they are not tokens. There really are a lot of smart Jews out there. Whether genetics or the cultural influence of a respect for scholarship I can’t say, but that’s real.

    I also remind people that Albert Einstein was originally named Albert Schingflatter, but he changed his last name to “Einstein” so he would seem more intelligent 🙂

    Einstein only had one patent for an improvement of an already invented refrigeration process, Tesla had 300 patents in a plethora of areas. Now granted, Einstein wasn’t considered to be an engineer or inventor, but considering that he had worked in many years in the patent offices and knew how the system worked, his “genius” would naturally of flowed and produced many inventions and improvements in technology.

    This declaration was made by Einstein’s (a Zionist activist deeply integrated with pan-Jewry) fellow Jews in the press, which critics dubbed “relativity hype.” This both surprised and infuriated his colleagues. A book released in 1924 by renown physicist Ernst Gehrcke, “The Mass Suggestion of Relativity Theory,” recorded 5,000 newspaper articles affirming with no proof that Einstein had shattered all previous notions in classical physics despite the jury still being out among many of his most respected peers.

    Einstein’s genius is the work of publicists and mass suggestion, in other words.

    When confronted with these facts or dissenting opinions throughout his career, Einstein’s go-to tactic was to take to the newspapers that loved him and accuse his detractors of “anti-Semitism.”

    A perfect illustration of the SOP of the mainstream Western media, as a front for the Jewish priesthood (self-styled arbiters of reality and morality).

    So jews were less than 1% of germans yet the greatest german scientist was the jewish Einstein, and 33% of German Nobel Laureates were jewish. That is truly remarkable. Imagine how great Germany would be today if the native germans had not been so resentful of jewish success and inflicted the Holocaust on them.

    Why are you getting so upset? Lorentz and Poincare pretty much did the whole of the Special Relativity before Einstein. Einstein did not acknowledge their work and published his Relativity paper in 1905. It is reasonable to assume that Einstein to some extent plagiarized their work. Einstein seemed to have a proclivity for plagiarism. His earlier works on thermodynamics were heavy borrowing from works of Josiah Willard Gibbs and he did not acknowledge it. Then there is a strange case of his 1927 paper related to Kaluza-Klein theory:

    It is possible that Einstein had some character flaw because totally unnecessarily alredy after his Nobel prize and when he was more famous than any other physicist before him in 1927 he plagiarized 1926 paper of Oscar Klein that lead to the Kaluza-Klein theory. But he was caught and the editor of the journal forced Einstein to write a statement that everything he showed was done year earlier by Klein. That’s why we have the Kaluza-Klein theory and not Kaluza-Klein-Einstein or Einstein only theory. Furthermore there is a proof that Einstein had a copy of Klein paper because he praised it in a letter to Ehrenfest. What does it tell you about him? Why? Was he some kind of psychopath? Kleptomaniac? Sense of impunity? Entitlement? One journal dared to review his paper and had it rejected. Einstein was furious. Wrote a furious letter that “you do not review my papers” and he never tried to publish in the same journal again.

    Hr. H. Mandel macht mich darauf aufmerksam, dass die von mir hier mitgetcilten Ergbnisse nich neu sind. Der ganze Inhalt findet sich in der Arbeit vo O. Klein (Zeitschr. f. Physik 37, 12, 1926, S. 895). Man vergleiche ferner Fochs Arveit (Zeitschr. f. Physisk 39, 226, 1926).

    https://arxiv.org/abs/1803.10662

    where you will find the following:

    “Both Ehrenfest and Lorentz urged Einstein to come to Leyden and join their meetings with Klein. Einstein wrote that he had to finish some things before vacationing with his sons (Doc. 319), but asked to see Klein’s paper two and a half months after he had been first informed of it (Doc. 356). Most likely at Ehrenfest’s suggestion, Klein wrote to Einstein directly in late August 1926 (Doc. 363). He sent Einstein not only the manuscript of his paper (Klein, O. 1926), but also proposed how he wanted to develop the theory further. In particular, he explained his idea of assuming a periodicity of the fifth coordinate, averaging over it, and reconceptualizing Schrödinger’s wave function as a component of the five-dimensional metric by effectively dropping the sharpened cylinder condition and using the same version of the condition that Kaluza had used seven years earlier.”

    Evans is considered way out there, but honest historians have noted her basic points are true: Scota, a refugee princess from Egypt as first queen of Scotland is a myth far older than Christianity in the British Isles, and nobody knows where/how it got there. (The myth that is.)

People make up such questions and deliver them as high-range IQ tests. As test results accumulate, presumably statistical validity of these scores and the technology generally are improving at least gradually, but the idea is that you use really hard questions and allow unlimited time.

    In the US the majority believe that frequent massacres, particularly in schools and churches, are a price worth paying to support the gun trade. Just a different culture with different values and traditions.

    Guns are, however, only part of the issue. Mass murderers in the US are usually mentally ill and lack of a comprehensive health care system is also a contributory factor.

    The most recent Texas church shooter, who was fortunately shot by an armed guard after killing two people (but could have been many more) was a mentally ill drug addict who needed to be under supervision and kept away from weapons. He had previously been helped by the church in some way, but probably they did not recognize that he needed an emergency mental health evaluation.

    Please understand that I am not in any way questioning your intelligence or honesty. I do believe that trying to assess IQ’s over 160 is wildly speculative. According to this website…

    https://stanfordbinetiqtest.com/faq/

    A score of 202 is said to be one in 11 billion and with only around 6.5 billion people on earth, the number seems both astronomical and impossible.

    I agree with you that “tests administered to seven- or eight-year-olds probably have sizeable error-bars.” And “Were those scores accurate? Who knows!”

    You continued… “the special LA program I attended had lots of other students who’d also scored quite high, with the minimum enrollment score being 150 (though sometimes pushy parents could override that). For example, another student a couple of years younger than me had scored 205, and there were quite a few students in the 180s and 190s. ”

    This leads me to believe that so many high scores amongst your peers points to somethings else driving these high scores. I speculate that it may be something akin to institutional competitiveness, perhaps for marketing purposes, or to appease the egos of the parents and administrators at your institution.

    Maybe your school was built with magic bricks upon truly magical dirt?

    Jan C. Biro makes the case that there is a lot of bias in favor of Jews in the Nobel Prize selection process. He cites behind the scenes networking, as well as a dramatic rise in shared prizes to explain the remarkably high number of Jews claiming this honor. He also points to another anomaly where there was a marked increase of Jewish Nobel Prize winners after World War 2, as if only the geniuses survived and even increased in number… I do not know what to make of that. But I hope other people look into it.

    Lastly, after giving a reminder about Ron Unz’s excellent American Pravda essays on The Myth of American Meritocracy, and Racial Discrimination at Harvard, I will leave you with this interesting passage from Bernard Lazare:

    “Not less than the Stoics did the Sophists detest the Jews. But the causes of their hatred were not religious, but, I should say, rather literary. From Ptolemy Philadelphus, until the middle of the third century, the Alexandrian Jews, with the intent of sustaining and strengthening their propaganda, gave themselves to forging all texts which were capable of lending support to their cause. The verses of Aeschylus, of Sophocles, of Euripides, the pretended oracles of Orpheus, preserved in Aristobulus and the Stromata of Clement of Alexandria were thus made to glorify the one God and the Sabbath. Historians were falsified or credited with the authorship of books they had never written. It is thus that a History of the Jews was published under the name of Hecataeus of Abdera. The most important of these inventions was the Sibylline oracles, a fabrication of the Alexandrian Jews, which prophesied the future advent of the reign of one God…
    “The Jews would appropriate to themselves even the Greek literature and philosophy. In a commentary on the Pentateuch, which has been preserved for us by Eusebius, Aristobulus attempted to show that Plato and Aristotle had found their metaphysical and ethical ideas in an old Greek translation of the Pentateuch. The Greeks were greatly incensed at such treatment of their literature… ”

    For the last 500 years Germany has been among the leaders of science and technology and then the sole leader. Maybe you didn’t read the article. It says Einstein was overrated. There were German Nobel prize recipients that even said that at that time. In regards to the so called Holocaust, I don’t believe in “conspiracy theories” and having been exposed to the soap and lampshades lies in school decades ago, which I protested against at that time (and had my views confirmed decades later), I now find myself in agreeement with more and more people, that the whole thing is a long list of lies, with new lies replacing the old lies that have been exposed. As I said, Jews contributed a lot to German science, but how much of that was due to Jewish ethnocentrism (racism) to adavnce themselves. Jews outnumber white Americans in the USA’s top universities today and the evidence suggests Jews are admitted against superior white Americans, again pointng to Jewish ethnocentrism.

    If Jews had been more patriotic and there were more like Fritz Haber and less like Einstein, they would not have been considered back stabbers. But any Jew that served in the German army in WW I (or someone like like Fritz Haber) waa consiederd a German and was exempt from anti-Jewish laws and arrest. Considering the Jews behavior inside as well as outside Germany, the German gov’t arresting them in 1941 was well deserved, in particular compatred to the American’s arrest of Japanese. The Jewish led USSR also arrested many minorities it suspected were not loyal.

    It doesn’t matter what they contribute in the short term, when it is anything significant at all. The long term goal is the de facto enslavement of everyone else. That’s the only argument that needs to be made in regard to Jews and Judaism, and it obliterates any argument as to the supposed benefits of their presence.

    I think MacDonald actually said that too many people on the net are plunging into the subject of Jewish influence without the necessary extensive study of Jewish issues. William L.Pierce was a physics professor and he said Einstein deserved the highest scientific plaudits, but was overhyped in mass culture. So there is some support for Striker’s thesis although he ought to have mentioned Scots such as John Napier, David Hume, and James Clerk Maxwell to avoid giving the impression that Scots are not mere technical adaptors. It almost sounds like he is saying theoretical advances and abstract thought are the province of Jews, and self promotion is too. There may be something to the latter proposition; if Werner Heisenberg had went to Hitler in Dec 1941 and said there was a good chance he could have a war winning weapon if he was prepared to give German scientists the necessary resources then Hitler probably would have demanded it be done.

    While this author is out of his element when it comes to the nuts and bolts of relativity, one looks at the Jewish spirit’s replacement of reason and intuition with abstraction and relativism in other fields like the arts, anthropology …

    Seeing nature over nurture as evil is even older than the play of Shakespeare (The Tempest ) from which the terms come. There was always a market for seeing the brutal side of life as something that could be transcended by a society with the proper arrangements. Margaret Mead was the lyrical side of that and even John B. Watson veered into it as he realised the opportunities. Lysenko too.

    Jews are good with words and abstract thought, also good businessmen, so as with Hollywood they gave the public what it wanted. As Christopher Badcock says “The objective universe is fatalistic…, but the mental one allows freedom, opportunity, and multiple outcomes”. Egalitarian-environmentalism is like being at the movies. Jews know how to make films that people actually want to see. It is the same with their theories about nurture over nature.

    The “Black Hebrews” are not converts to Judaism. I don’t know of a rabbinic authority that has certified their conversion. They just announced they are the real Jews and, from what I’ve heard, even that the prior “holders of that title” are not.

    My understanding is that Shem’s brother, Ham, was the father of the African races. Therefore they are not Semites and not Jews unless by conversion.

    Oh good grief, in the world of music, it’s all down to who you know and who your friends are. Is this news to you? Bernstein loved Mahler. You may not. Neither Bernstein nor Mahler nor anyone else is saying white non-Jews did nothing important.

    But Bernstein was entitled to prefer and to promote Mahler. I am not all that taken with Mahler’s music, maybe I don’t “get” it, but Bernstein was a truly remarkable conductor. When he conducted, the music came alive and was interesting. Try it, listen to a piece conducted by Bernstein, and by someone else. You’ll probably like the Bernstein version better.

  92. Vaterland says:

    While I am late to the party, I consider it necessary to add original statements by a German scientist on whose work the theory of Einstein was founded, Max Planck.

    This interview is from 1942, under the 3rd Reich government https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mwHXBn6mcM

    Firstly, at minute 14:00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mwHXBn6mcM Max Planck goes into detail that his own theories were not taken seriously and ignored for a good while, as it is usual for such new things.

    It’s been several years since I was more closely engaged in physics as an interested layman, but as far as I remember and as it had been explained to me by physics professor Harald Lesch the theory of special relativity, or actually zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper, was truly set in motion by Planck’s discovery of quantum packaging of light and the wave-particle duality of light and the discovery of what is now called the Plancksches Wirkungsquantum, or Planck constant in English https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_constant

    According to Professor Lesch this rather obscure patent office clerk in Switzerland named Einstein was the only man who took Planck’s theories seriously, and who, at the time, was himself, uncertain of his own theory. And it is not unusual in a very new field, which quantum mechanics was, for outsiders, newcomers and the young to come in and make breakthroughs which older scientists with decades of experience, knowledge and dogmatism might not be rebellious enough to do. Werner Heisenberg talks about this here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJSmdErgcHs

    Now to the real core of this post. Planck in the interview linked above talks very detailed about the development of his theories, which an actual physicist may be suited to digest, and he finally says at 16:05: “Deshalb erregte auch die Aufstellung der Relativitätstheorie gleich von Anfang an meine besondere Aufmerksamkeit. Und es erfüllte mich mit lebhafter Genugtuung als sich – …. als sich herausstellte, dass die Relativitätstheorie durch ihre Gleichsetzung von Energie und Impuls eigentlich erst die Vollendung und Krönung des ganzen Gebäudes der theoretischen Physik darstellt. Ich habe ihr auch, solange sie nicht ganz zur Reife entwickelt war, einige, äh, Reihe von Arbeiten gewidmet.”

    In English:
    “That is why the establishment of the theory of relativity caught my special attention right from the start. And it filled me with lively satisfaction as – … when it turned out that the theory of relativity, through its equation of energy and momentum, was actually only the completion and crowning of the whole building of theoretical physics. I also dedicated some, uh, series of work to it, as long as it wasn’t fully developed. ”

    So firstly let’s address the source of this video: Der Film “Geheimrat Max Planck”, in dem der 84-jährige Planck in Form eines Selbstportraits über sein Leben und Werk berichtet, entstand am 15.12.1942 im Auftrag des Reichspropagandaministeriums. Er wurde nicht für die aktuelle Propaganda des Dritten Reichs eingesetzt, sondern war Teil einer Serie von Portraits, die zusammen ein “Filmarchiv der Persönlichkeiten” bilden sollten.

    In English: “The film “Privy Councilor Max Planck”, in which the 84-year-old Planck reports about his life and work in the form of a self-portrait, was made on December 15, 1942 on behalf of the Reich Ministry of Propaganda. It was not used for the current propaganda of the Third Reich, but was part of a series of portraits, which together should form a “film archive of the personalities”.

    1942, not only under the 3rd Reich government, but directly ordered by it. Considering the views of some members of the NSDAP on “Jewish physics” which Striker and Moike seem to repeat now, and considering that Planck’s work not only was foundational to the theory of special relativity and his own professional and I may add personal involvement with the scientific work and the person of Albert Einstein, why didn’t he shout from all roof tops: “Hold this fraud! This dirty Jew Albert Einstein is a scam artist who stole from Aryans!” But instead Max Planck himself also, unsuccessfully, defended Albert Einstein against the government of the third Reich as a “valuable Jew”.

    Of all things Nazi, the concept of “Jüdische Physik” always seemed the crudest to me. And you could easily accuse Werner Heisenberg, who unlike Einstein actually turned his physics into a philosophy, of the same charge. Considering the uncertainty principle and the Copenhagen Interpretation and so on and on. Which, obviously, would be just as absurd. I suppose some people really let the cart of their imagination get dragged around by their bias in this off-shoot of “Jewish, urban intellectualism”.

    As with ‘the holocaust’ and the historical facts, so too in science matters and scientist personalities, the realities and the publicized and media mythology are different things. The questionable cannibalization of Einstein by identity politics of Jewishness and the lobby work involved does neither confirm nor falsify the theories of special or general relativity. And as far as I am aware Albert Einstein was himself skeptical of this personality cult surrounding him. This article closes with Einstein quotes lamenting it. https://www.mpg.de/9236014/eddington-sonnenfinsternis-1919

    Regarding Albert Einstein the cultural meme of the most intelligent man who ever lived, it is to be treated with skeptical caution and irony. But the actual scientist and the theory are independent of it. And I don’t see the meme as categorically different to the way Anglo-Saxons treated Newton who was a God in his time, outshining the Einstein cult. Rightists who get involved in matters they do not really understand such as these, may expose themselves to weaknesses of unreliability, strong bias and even delusion, to the more educated, potentially wealthy and connected individuals they may wish to win over.

    Here is also a list of experiments testing relativity. https://www.haus-der-astronomie.de/3556204/07-effekte-mp.pdf

    Einstein also wrote a highly critical letter condemning the actions of Zionists in Palestine and equating them to what had happened to them.

    Good old Menachem Begin again, Mr. “king of terrorism in the world”:

    Would this supposed “consensus” still be so if Germany had won the Second World War and science was freed of top-down Jewish pressure from people like Bret Stephens?

    Really? What top-down Jewish pressure do gossipers like Bret Stephens really exercise on the “scientific community”? There is one really easy way to get rid of special and general relativity: falsify the theories with accurate science.

    Also, for the love of God, Americans: stop equating Hitler and the Third Reich with Germany. It is annoying, both in the negative and the positive. Germans are an ancient people with at least 2 millennia of history and Adolf Schickelgruber was for a shorter period chancellor than Kohl and Merkel. And he only got 33% of the votes at his peak.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Planck

    “In January 1945, Erwin, to whom he (Max Planck) had been particularly close, was sentenced to death by the Nazi Volksgerichtshof because of his participation in the failed attempt to assassinate Hitler in July 1944. Erwin was executed on 23 January 1945.[17]”

    Regarding the inter-play of Germans and Jews. Here is a fascinating discussion between Konrad Lorenz (formerly NSDAP) and Karl Popper (The Open Society and its enemies) who also found much in common. When Popper read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behind_the_Mirror:_A_Search_for_a_Natural_History_of_Human_Knowledge

    Interestingly enough they also talked about the undetermined characteristics of nature, which one may find related to the concept of the open society. From Pierre Teilhard de Chardin to Maxwell’s demon, the genius of Beethoven and the nature of creativity. Everything in this time had a different breath of life: mind, personality, culture, brilliance. So too the interplay between Germans and Jews. The identity politics of today, as we can see, are a cultural warfare meme by a set of agitated Jews who gained control over the Jewish political and media mainstream after the world war and which resonate with American liberalism and the war memes of the USA. Yet the great mind of Europe and the west has dried out and withered, in the miseducaed public today it is entirely dead. Replaced by obscenity and truly abhorrent, satanic mass-culture.

    The nature of the discussion in our age is abominable, saturated with deranged memes of a decaying empire, the people involved are wicked and stupid and the blind masses who follow them are ignorant.

    A quote from the discussion seems very fitting today:

    Moderator: “Aber die Grundfrage ist doch: Wie kann aus zwei Stumpfsinnigkeiten, aus der Notwendigkeit der bloßen Wiederholung und dem Zufall, der nur ein Irrtum ist; wie kann aus zwei Stumpfsinnigkeiten der Feuersturm des Geistes entstehen und des Lebens.”

    “But yet the fundamental question is this: How can from two stupidities, out of the necessity of mere repetition and chance, which is but an error, how can from two stupidities arise the fire storm of the mind and of life.”

    Welcome to “identity politics and memes in the age of social media” I suppose.

    FIRST, MY VIEW OF JEWS — apart from the matter of “Jewish” intelligence (which I address later below):

    “Jewish” is much merely a religious orientation, rather than a specific genetic characteristic. Many “Jews” are not Hebraic or Semitic.

    The great Khazar Empire was largely “Jewish” after its Emperor converted to Judaism, though its population included Turkic, Mongol, Slavic, Scandinavian, Persian, and Magyar peoples and zero or near-zero Hebraic or Semitic individuals.
    http://www.khazaria.com/khazar-history.html
    https://www.ancient-origins.net/history-famous-people/khazars-0011246

    After the Khazar Emperor converted to Judaism, the Empire’s majority (perhaps 85% or more) converted to Judaism. Many migrated to parts of Europe. Israeli and other Jewish sources acknowledge that Khazars MAY be the ancestors of many Ashkenazi Jews.
    https://jewishreviewofbooks.com/articles/802/are-we-all-khazars-now/
    https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/leaked-report-israel-acknowledges-jews-in-fact-khazars-secret-plan-for-reverse-migration-to-ukraine/
    Hence, Ashkenazi Jewry may not include many who are even partly descendants of ancient Hebraic (“Semitic”) Jews (the self-named “Chosen” people of ancient Judea).

    Sephardic Jews mixed with Arabs, Berbers, and members of sundry Spanish sub-races — the Spanish sub-races including Celtic, Basque, Italic, and Teutonic groups, ancient Celtic inhabitants of northwestern Spain (Galicia) and Portugal and nearby Iberian regions, Roman and related Italic migrations per rapes or quasi-indigenous non-Italics of the Iberian peninsula, a large migration of Visigoths, and rapes committed by Frankish warriors.

    [MORE]

    In medieval and Renaissance Europe, Ashkenazi Jews were, mostly, inhabitants of German-language-speaking areas of Central and Eastern Europe (especially, but not only, German-speaking parts of the Holy Roman Empire, until, in the mid & late 15th Century, many migrated to northeast Italy. Medieval, renaissance, and “enlightenment”-period Ashkenazi Jewish population bore a notably large number of unscrupulous bankers and other moneylenders.

    Now and through the whole modern era, Ashkenazi Jews have constituted a sizeable portion of the unscrupulous financial “industry” and the powerful of American and European corporatocracy — especially American the Neoconservative and Neoliberal politico-economic power-structure.

    More than any other American ethnicity, Ashkenazi Jews have been responsible to the development and vilent manifestation of the U.S. neoliberal Empire and the near-incalculably immense physical harms it has wrought with illegal wars and other illegal invasions or occupations and economic sanctions and illegal regime-changes and resulting human suffering.

    Ashkenazi Jews were the first Zionists (and Zionist-terrorists) and remain the most powerful (and most evil) members of Zionist Israel’s political and military elite. Zionist Israel is the second worst terrorist state (the U.S. being the worst). Zionist Israel is the world’s worst threat of terrorist and formal military violence and threatens peace more than any other state.

    Beyond doubt, the ancient Jewish religion included belief that Jews were entitled — even commanded by Jaweh — to conquer non-Jewish-held areas of the Canaan region and kill every man, woman, and child of the conquered area and also entitled to enslave non-Jews. See, E.G.,the “Old Testament” Book of Joshua.

    But, also, Jews — Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and other — have fought for civil liberties, universal civil rights, and full equal legal justice, and full equal economic justice — more than have any other ethic group. And, like Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, Judaism is not a homogeneous “faith, but, rather, an aggregation of variously different religious-belief-sets and philosophies.

    Many Israeli Jews decry, even publically, and work against Zionist Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocidal maltreatment of Palestinians. Jews are disproportionately numerous supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement that presses Israel to cease its oppression, murder, and dislocation of Palestinian and to return to Palestine the land stolen by Zionist Jewry and thence by the illegitimate non-state of Israel, which has no right to exist. RE: Israel’s illegitimacy and lack of right of existence, see, E.G., https://voltairenet.org/article168535.html
    https://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2019/03/15/why-israel-has-no-right-to-exist
    https://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2010/10/26/the-myth-of-the-u-n-creation-of-israel

    At on extreme are modern orthodox sects that continue to adhere to essentially the ancient Judaism that held Jews Jaweh’s “Chosen” people entitled to make all others slaves and entitled — even commanded by Jaweh — to conquer non-Jewish-held domains and kill every man, woman, and child of the conquered lands.

    At the other extreme are some few Jews who are essentially Jews of the specific faith to which Jesus of Nazareth, and John the Baptist, adhered — the Essene faith, which taught virtually absolute nonviolence, even that humans must not eat non-human animals or harm them in any way. The Pharisees persecuted Jesus PARTLY because he was an Essene.

    Medieval and renaissance Sephardic Judaism bore some aspects of the Essene faith and absorbed aspects of the mystical/nonviolent Sufi sect of Islam — hence Sephardic philosophic works like Benedito de Espinosa, ETHICA ORDINE GEOMETRICO DEMONSTRATA, Parts III, IV, and V, https://www.gutenberg.org/files/3800/3800-h/3800-h.htm , which, AT CORE, surprisingly, resemble the great Hindu/Buddhist text Bhagavad Gita.

    Also, one can argue — as has been argued with substantial evidence — that Ashkenazi Jews tended to become bankers, money-lenders (and physicians, lawyers, and merchants) much because, in the German-speaking areas of Central and Eastern Europe, Jews were not permitted to be artisans, soldiers, or farmers. Did Ashkenazi Jews become UNSCRUPULOUS bankers and money-lenders because they were not permitted many other trades? Surely not. Still, quite enough NON-Jews have been markedly unscrupulous in many occupations — certainly worse than unscrupulous in war.

    In his article “American Pravda: Oddities of the Jewish Religion,” https://unz.com/runz/american-pravda-oddities-of-the-jewish-religion , Ron Unz asserts (at least suggests strenuously) that ACTUALLY medieval and renaissance Jews kidnaped and committed ritual murders of Christian boys to sacrifice them to Jaweh and drink their blood or use their blood to make Passover matzah balls. Mr. Unz cites and purports to rely on Ariel Toaff, “BLOOD PASSOVER: The Jews of Europe and Ritual Murder” (2007 translation per Gian Marco Lucchese & Pietro Gianetti available at http://israelshamir.net/BLOODPASSOVER.pdf

    In the “FOREWORD BY ORIGINAL TRANSLATORS” of Areal Toaff’s “BLOOD PASSOVER,” the Original Translators (Gian Marco Lucchese and Pietro Gianetti, both anti-Semites) assert that, according to Toaff:
    * Jews kidnapped and castrated Christian boys on a large scale and sold them into slavery in Islamic Spain for centuries;
    * Jews used [and still use?] human blood in all sorts of quack remedies, despite the Biblical prohibition, even for minor complaints;
    *Jews used [and still use?] Christian human blood in their matzoh balls at Passover;
    * Jews used [and still use?] Christian human blood in their wine at Passover;
    * the blood had to be from Christian boys no more than 7 years of age;
    * the blood had [has?] to be certified kosher by a rabbi;
    * there was [is?] a large and profitable trade in fake blood products and animal blood, which was [are?] unsuitable to the purpose;
    * Christians tried to sell the blood of Christian boys to Jews, but were rejected because the Jews feared it was animal blood

    The translators’ FOREWORD adds that Toaff said “no Christian boys were ever killed to obtain the blood. Never, never! Or hardly ever. It all came from “voluntary donors”! Then the translators’ FOREWORD closes with this:
    “Anybody having read the book will simply laugh.
    The only “saving clause” is that these charges are made against Ashkenazi Jews only. It would be interesting to see how much filthy ‘Sephardic linen’the Ashkenazi could air in public if they so chose.”

    Toaff’s BLOOD PASSOVER does NOT assert or suggests, anywhere, that anyone ever alleged that Saphardic Jews committed ritual murder of Christian boys or used their involuntarily-obtained blood in rituals or otherwise. Toaff’s book does NOT prove, or assert, that Ashkenazi Jews — or any other Jews — committed such crimes, for Jewish ritual or any other purpose.

    Rather, Toaff’s book observes medieval and renaissance ALLEGATIONS that Ashkenazi Jews committed such crimes and observes that under torture, or in fear of torture, several Jews confessed to such crimes. See BLOOD PASSOVER at, E.G., Chapters I, II, III, and about the first half of Chapter IV (pp.19-99).

    But Toaff’s book PROVES that actually such crimes were never committed — proved so by observing the clear, never-refuted history that in enough such cases of ritual murder ALLEGATIONS and TORTURE-inspired confessions (or what amounts to plea-bargains of ALLEGED co-conspirators or ALLEGED crime-accessories).

    In some cases the alleged child victim was either not murdered or harmed by a Jew or anyone else or was found having died of natural causes or by no wrongful act of any Jew or anyone else. Or, the accused Jews were released (the charges dismissed), in some instances because of their non-rebutted denials of wrongdoing — though some alleged that they bribed their ways to exoneration or freedom. See BLOOD PASSOVER at, E.G., Chapters IV & V. In enough cases, the allegedly murdered boys were not 7 years old or younger, but teenagers. See BLOOD PASSOVER at, E.G., Chapter IV.

    In enough cases, the allegations were explained by desire to confiscate the money and other property of the accused Jews. See BLOOD PASSOVER Chapter IV.

    In at least one other case, a Jew’s own greed explained his tricking and accusing other Jews.
    Cf., E.G., this account, appearing at BLOOD PASSOVER p.127:

    *** Instruments of torture may have been, and were, used on the other defendants to loosen their tongues; in the case of the wily Wolfgang, perhaps they might have been of more use in damming up the torrent of incredible revelations which he seemed unable to control. Hurt to the quick, and stung in his vanity, the young painter completely flew off the handle, raised his voice and shouted defiantly at anyone who would listen:
    ‘By God! I have reported what Rizzardo told me, word for word, and thus I will repeat it, before any Lord or Prince: just take me to the place of execution and decapitate me, or kill me in any other way, but I will not speak otherwise than I have done’.
    Rizzardo, the Brescian resident from Regensburg, Lazzaro’s uncle, servant of Angelo of Verona, had been telling the truth. Or at least, his truth. The truth that Wolfgang claimed to have learned during the hot days of the preceding summer, while the plague raged at Brescia. For his part, Rizzardo da Brescia had a no less famous namesake. The Jew Rizzardo (Reichard) of Mospach was a swindler and good-for nothing, arrested for theft at Regensburg in 1475. To his inquisitors, the latter Rizzardo confessed that he had been baptized several times to obtain money and other benefits from ingenuous Christians to whom he turned, both city people and peasants. But even the Jews, according to him, had proven the gullible victims of his tricks. The Jews Krautheim, Bamberg and Regensburg had purchased fake Hosts, which he claimed to have purloined from various churches in the area, to be ‘tortured’ by the Jews during their anti-Christian rites. Rizzardo-Reichard — who lived alternately as a Jew and alternately as a Christian — was married to three women simultaneously, each one of them unaware of the existence of the others. Starting in 1476, he had spent years wandering back and forth between the villages and cities of Bohemia and Moravia, of the Rhineland and Brandenburg, of Alsace and Württemberg. He had been in Bern, Bamberg and Nuremberg. He admitted to having lived in Italy for a while, in various cities whose names he could no longer remember (was Brescia one of them?). But he clearly recalled having stayed at Trent, where he was in contact with the Jewish families then accused of the ritual murder of little Simon.”

    Jews (whatever than means) do not hold a monopoly of either goodness or badness. The various historic empires — Persian, Greek, Roman, Teutonic, Arab, Mongol, Turkish, Khazar, Mogul, Sikh…… — were not Jewish, but they were ruthlessly cruel, as were the French and English empires and as is, now, the American.

    The Roman Catholic Church slaughtered many thousands because of a dispute concerning whether the holy sacrament involve drinking the actual blood and eating the actual flesh of Jesus (transubstantiation versus consubstantiation) or whether Jesus was like, but not of substance identical to but lesser than, God (Arianism versus Homoiousianism versus Homoeanism versus Heteroousianism). The Catholic Inquisition killed Jews and “heretic” boys hundreds of times more than any Jews ALLEGEDLY committed ritual murder of Christians, young boys, teenaged boys, or any other Christians.

    NOW THE MATTER OF JEWISH INTELLIGENCE:

    Recall that “Jewish” ANYTHING — intelligence, charity, empathy, greed, swindling, goodness, kindness, cruelty, love, hate — is an immensely ambiguous idea: “Jewish” (ethnicity) is a markedly ambiguous term or idea; so is Judaism. SEE ABOVE.

    But, we do have some scientific statistics pertinent to the matter of the intelligence of Ashkenazi Jews, German or European Jews, or American Jews versus the intelligence of other peoples of supposedly other “races” (or ethnicities). One statistical considerations is that of I.Q. test scores and, particularly, Arthur Jensen’s studies and others’ related work of that field.

    I pick Jensen’s studies (and related other work) partly because it fits the White supremacist liking of insisting that Blacks bear intelligence markedly lesser than that of “Whites” (a reality Jensen and others proved irrefutably).

    In Rushton & Jensen, “Race and IQ: A theory-based review of the research in Richard Nisbett’s Intelligence and how to get it,” The Open Psychology Journal, 3, Article 9-35 (2010), https://psycnet.apa.org/record/2011-18869-001 [also published at this site https://benthamopen.com/contents/pdf/TOPSYJ/TOPSYJ-3-9.pdf ], the authors report this range of I.Q.s: “Jewish (mean IQ = 113), East Asian (106), White (100), Hispanic (90), South Asian (87), African American (85), and sub-Saharan African (70). The same findings are reported in Herrnstein & Murray, “The Bell Curve” (New York: Free Press 1994).

    In Arthur Jensen, “Bias in Mental Testing” (THE FREE PRESS, Macmillan, NEW YORK 1980)
    at p.359, this appears:

    “A cross various racial and social-class groups, the prevalence of delinquency is approximately the same at any given IQ level. In other words, if one controls for IQ, the marked racial and social-class differences in delinquency rates disappear. Minority racial and ethnic groups with mean IQs at or above the general population mean, such as Orientals and Jews, show correspondingly lower rates of delinquency to the same extent that minorities with mean IQs below the population average show correspondingly higher rates.”

    In Arthur Jensen, “How Much Can We Boost IQ and Scholastic Achievement?” (Univ. of Calif., Berkeley, Originally published in Harvard Educational Review, Vol. 39, No. 1, Winter 1969, pages 1-123), this appears: “It is interesting that Jewish immigrants, whose offspring are usually found to have a higher mean IQ than the general population, show fewer disadvantageous reproductive conditions and have the lowest infant mortality rates of all ethnic groups, even when matched with other immigrant and native born groups on general environmental conditions (Graves et al., 1968).”

    In Rushton & Jensen, “THIRTY YEARS OF RESEARCH ON RACE DIFFERENCES IN COGNITIVE ABILITY,” Psychology, Public Policy, and Law, 2005, V. 11, No. 2, 235-294 (Amer. Psychological Assoc.), https://www1.udel.edu/educ/gottfredson/30years/Rushton-Jensen30years.pdf, the authors state, again, that Jews score highest in I.Q. testing, but the authors add that other considerations also indicate that Jewish intelligence is highest, among such considerations is brain size, the brain sizes of Jews and East Asians being highest, and East Asian I.Q. being second highest (mean I.Q. of 106 versus the Jewish mean I.Q. of 113, versus mean white I.Q. of 100).

    High intelligence can be an instrument of good — creation of a better world of less poverty, crime illness, and suffering, and greater joy, charity, and compassion. Or it can be a tool of the worst evils. Just so, Jews have been the among the worst banes — like neoconservatives and neoliberals and the likes of Goldman-Sachs and the government of Zionist Israel and its terrorist history.

    Also, the Jews’ intelligence — and its individual wealth-production and manifest scientific and professional prowess — have brought Jews grave enmity and horrendous harms wrought by jealousy. And, in turn, many psychically defective, hence empathy-lacking Jews have injured millions economically and, indirectly, with extortionate political manipulation (as by AIPAC), regime-change stealth and hegemonic or plain greedy wars waged by the U.S. and its client states and terrorist groups acting as surrogate of the U.S.

    CONCLUSION

    Scientific evidence indicates the Jews tend to be smarter than others. Reality indicates that too many Jews — though perhaps not a great percentage of them — use their brains to do harm. But do not inveigh against Jews. Inveigh against all individuals, law firms, governments, and business entities, or social or political organizations — Jewish or Gentile — that do harm rather than either improve public welfare (or Benthamian utility) or do not impair it.

    =====

    FIRST, MY VIEW OF JEWS — apart from the matter of “Jewish” intelligence (which I address later below):

    “Jewish” is much merely a religious orientation, rather than a specific genetic characteristic. Many “Jews” are not Hebraic or Semitic.

    [MORE]

    The great Khazar Empire was largely “Jewish” after its Emperor converted to Judaism, though its population included Turkic, Mongol, Slavic, Scandinavian, Persian, and Magyar peoples and zero or near-zero Hebraic or Semitic individuals.
    http://www.khazaria.com/khazar-history.html
    https://www.ancient-origins.net/history-famous-people/khazars-0011246

    After the Khazar Emperor converted to Judaism, the Empire’s majority (perhaps 85% or more) converted to Judaism. Many migrated to parts of Europe. Israeli and other Jewish sources acknowledge that Khazars MAY be the ancestors of many Ashkenazi Jews.
    https://jewishreviewofbooks.com/articles/802/are-we-all-khazars-now/
    https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/leaked-report-israel-acknowledges-jews-in-fact-khazars-secret-plan-for-reverse-migration-to-ukraine/
    Hence, Ashkenazi Jewry may not include many who are even partly descendants of ancient Hebraic (“Semitic”) Jews (the self-named “Chosen” people of ancient Judea).

    ***** Sephardic Jews mixed with Arabs, Berbers, and members of sundry Spanish sub-races — the Spanish sub-races including Celtic [ancient Celtic inhabitation of northwestern Spain (Galicia) and Portugal and nearby Iberian regions], Basque, Italic, and Teutonic groups, Roman (much per rapes committed by Roman soldiers), Visigoths, and Frankish warriors (by rape).

    ***** In medieval and Renaissance Europe, Ashkenazi Jews were, mostly, inhabitants of German-language-speaking areas of Central and Eastern Europe (especially, but not only, German-speaking parts of the Holy Roman Empire, until, in the mid & late 15th Century, many migrated to northeast Italy. The medieval, renaissance, and “enlightenment”-period Ashkenazi Jewish population bore a notably large number of unscrupulous bankers and other moneylenders.

    ***** Now and through the whole modern era, Ashkenazi Jews have constituted a sizeable portion of the unscrupulous financial “industry” and the powerful of American and European corporatocracy — especially American Neoconservative and Neoliberal politico-economic power-structure.

    ***** More than any other American ethnicity, Ashkenazi Jews have been responsible for the development and violent manifestation of the U.S. neoliberal Empire and the near-incalculably immense physical harms it has wrought with illegal wars and other illegal invasions or occupations and economic sanctions and illegal regime-changes and resulting human suffering.

    ***** Ashkenazi Jews were the first Zionists (and Zionist-terrorists) and remain the most powerful (and most evil) members of Zionist Israel’s political and military elite. Zionist Israel is the second worst terrorist state (the U.S. being the worst). Zionist Israel is, currently, the world’s worst threat of terrorist and formal military violence and, currently, threatens peace more than any other state.

    ***** Beyond doubt, the ancient Jewish religion included belief that Jews were entitled — even commanded by Jaweh — to conquer non-Jewish-held areas of the Canaan region and kill every man, woman, child, and animal of the conquered area and also entitled to enslave non-Jews. See, E.G.,the “Old Testament” Book of Joshua.

    ***** But, also, Jews — Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and other — have fought for civil liberties, universal civil rights, full equal legal justice, and full equal economic justice — more than has any other ethnic group. And, like Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, Judaism is not a homogeneous “faith,” but, rather, an aggregation of variously different religious-belief-sets and philosophies.

    ***** Many Israeli Jews decry, even publically, and work against Zionist Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocidal maltreatment of Palestinians. Jews are disproportionately numerous supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement that presses Israel to cease its oppression, murder, and dislocation of Palestinians and to return to Palestine the land stolen by Zionist Jewry and thence by the illegitimate non-state of Israel, which has no right to exist. RE: Israel’s illegitimacy and lack of right of existence, see, E.G., https://voltairenet.org/article168535.html
    https://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2019/03/15/why-israel-has-no-right-to-exist
    https://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2010/10/26/the-myth-of-the-u-n-creation-of-israel

    ***** At one extreme are modern orthodox sects that continue to adhere to essentially the ancient Judaism that held Jews Jaweh’s “Chosen” people entitled to make all others slaves and entitled — even commanded by Jaweh — to conquer non-Jewish-held domains and kill every man, woman, child, and animal of the conquered lands.

    ***** At the other extreme are some few Jews who are essentially Jews of the specific faith to which Jesus of Nazareth, and John the Baptist, adhered — the Essene faith, which taught virtually absolute nonviolence, even that humans must not eat animals or harm them in any way. The Pharisees persecuted Jesus PARTLY because he was an Essene.

    Medieval and renaissance Sephardic Judaism bore some aspects of the Essene faith and absorbed aspects of the mystical/nonviolent Sufi sect of Islam — hence Sephardic philosophic works like Benedito de Espinosa, ETHICA ORDINE GEOMETRICO DEMONSTRATA, Parts III, IV, and V, https://www.gutenberg.org/files/3800/3800-h/3800-h.htm , which, AT CORE, surprisingly, resemble the great Hindu/Buddhist text Bhagavad Gita.

    ***** Also, one can argue — as has been argued with substantial evidence — that Ashkenazi Jews tended to become bankers, money-lenders (and physicians, lawyers, and merchants) much because, in the German-speaking areas of Central and Eastern Europe, Jews were not permitted to be artisans, soldiers, or farmers. Did Ashkenazi Jews become UNSCRUPULOUS bankers and money-lenders because they were not permitted many other trades? Surely not. Still, quite enough NON-Jews have been markedly unscrupulous in many occupations — flagrantly unscrupulous in war.

    In his article “American Pravda: Oddities of the Jewish Religion,” https://unz.com/runz/american-pravda-oddities-of-the-jewish-religion , Ron Unz asserts (at least suggests strenuously) that ACTUALLY medieval and renaissance Jews kidnaped and committed ritual murders of Christian boys to sacrifice them to Jaweh and drink their blood or use their blood to make Passover matzah balls. Mr. Unz cites and purports to rely on Ariel Toaff, “BLOOD PASSOVER: The Jews of Europe and Ritual Murder” (2007 translation per Gian Marco Lucchese & Pietro Gianetti available at http://israelshamir.net/BLOODPASSOVER.pdf

    In the “FOREWORD BY ORIGINAL TRANSLATORS” of Areal Toaff’s “BLOOD PASSOVER,” the Original Translators (Gian Marco Lucchese and Pietro Gianetti, both anti-Semites) assert that, according to Toaff:
    * Jews kidnapped and castrated Christian boys on a large scale and sold them into slavery in Islamic Spain for centuries;
    * Jews used [and still use?] human blood in all sorts of quack remedies, despite the Biblical prohibition, even for minor complaints;
    *Jews used [and still use?] Christian human blood in their matzoh balls at Passover;
    * Jews used [and still use?] Christian human blood in their wine at Passover;
    * the blood had to be from Christian boys no more than 7 years of age;
    * the blood had [has?] to be certified kosher by a rabbi;
    * there was [is?] a large and profitable trade in fake blood products and animal blood, which was [are?] unsuitable to the purpose;
    * Christians tried to sell the blood of Christian boys to Jews, but were rejected because the Jews feared it was animal blood

    The translators’ FOREWORD adds that Toaff said “no Christian boys were ever killed to obtain the blood. Never, never! Or hardly ever. It all came from “voluntary donors”! Then the translators’ FOREWORD closes with this:
    “Anybody having read the book will simply laugh.
    The only “saving clause” is that these charges are made against Ashkenazi Jews only. It would be interesting to see how much filthy ‘Sephardic linen’the Ashkenazi could air in public if they so chose.”

    ***** Toaff’s BLOOD PASSOVER does NOT assert or suggest, anywhere, that anyone ever alleged that Saphardic Jews committed ritual murder of Christian boys or used their involuntarily-obtained blood in rituals or otherwise. Toaff’s book does NOT prove, or assert, that Ashkenazi Jews — or any other Jews — committed such crimes, for Jewish ritual or any other purpose.

    Rather, Toaff’s book observes medieval and renaissance ALLEGATIONS that Ashkenazi Jews committed such crimes and observes that under torture, or in fear of torture, several Jews confessed to such crimes. See BLOOD PASSOVER at, E.G., Chapters I, II, III, and about the first half of Chapter IV (pp.19-99).

    ***** But Toaff’s book PROVES that actually such crimes were never committed — proves so by observing the clear, never-refuted history that in enough such cases of ritual murder ALLEGATIONS and TORTURE-inspired confessions (or plea-bargains of ALLEGED co-conspirators or ALLEGED crime-accessories), the ALLEGED victims were NOT ANYONE’s victim.

    ***** In some cases the alleged child victim (a) was neither murdered nor harmed by a Jew or anyone else or (b) was found having died of natural causes or by no wrongful act of any Jew or anyone else. Or, the accused Jews were released (the charges dismissed), in some instances because of their non-rebutted denials of wrongdoing — though some alleged that Jews bribed their ways to exoneration or freedom. See BLOOD PASSOVER at, E.G., Chapters IV & V. In enough cases, the allegedly murdered boys were not 7 years old or younger, but teenagers. See BLOOD PASSOVER at, E.G., Chapter IV.

    In enough cases, the allegations were explained by desire to confiscate the money and other property of the accused Jews. See BLOOD PASSOVER Chapter IV.

    In at least one other case, a Jew’s own greed explained his tricking and accusing other Jews. Cf., E.G., this account, appearing at BLOOD PASSOVER p.127:

    *** Instruments of torture may have been, and were, used on the other defendants to loosen their tongues; in the case of the wily Wolfgang, perhaps they might have been of more use in damming up the torrent of incredible revelations which he seemed unable to control. Hurt to the quick, and stung in his vanity, the young painter completely flew off the handle, raised his voice and shouted defiantly at anyone who would listen:
    ‘By God! I have reported what Rizzardo told me, word for word, and thus I will repeat it, before any Lord or Prince: just take me to the place of execution and decapitate me, or kill me in any other way, but I will not speak otherwise than I have done’.
    Rizzardo, the Brescian resident from Regensburg, Lazzaro’s uncle, servant of Angelo of Verona, had been telling the truth. Or at least, his truth. The truth that Wolfgang claimed to have learned during the hot days of the preceding summer, while the plague raged at Brescia. For his part, Rizzardo da Brescia had a no less famous namesake. The Jew Rizzardo (Reichard) of Mospach was a swindler and good-for nothing, arrested for theft at Regensburg in 1475. To his inquisitors, the latter Rizzardo confessed that he had been baptized several times to obtain money and other benefits from ingenuous Christians to whom he turned, both city people and peasants. But even the Jews, according to him, had proven the gullible victims of his tricks. The Jews Krautheim, Bamberg and Regensburg had purchased fake Hosts, which he claimed to have purloined from various churches in the area, to be ‘tortured’ by the Jews during their anti-Christian rites. Rizzardo-Reichard — who lived alternately as a Jew and alternately as a Christian — was married to three women simultaneously, each one of them unaware of the existence of the others. Starting in 1476, he had spent years wandering back and forth between the villages and cities of Bohemia and Moravia, of the Rhineland and Brandenburg, of Alsace and Württemberg. He had been in Bern, Bamberg and Nuremberg. He admitted to having lived in Italy for a while, in various cities whose names he could no longer remember (was Brescia one of them?). But he clearly recalled having stayed at Trent, where he was in contact with the Jewish families then accused of the ritual murder of little Simon.”

    Jews (whatever than means) do not hold a monopoly of either goodness or badness. The various historic empires — Persian, Greek, Roman, Teutonic, Arab, Mongol, Turkish, Khazar, Mogul, Sikh…… — were not Jewish, but they were ruthlessly cruel, as were the French and English empires and as is, now, the American.

    The Roman Catholic Church slaughtered many thousands because of a dispute concerning whether the holy sacrament involve drinking the actual blood and eating the actual flesh of Jesus (transubstantiation versus consubstantiation) or whether Jesus was like, but not of substance identical to but lesser than, God (Arianism versus Homoiousianism versus Homoeanism versus Heteroousianism). The Catholic Inquisition killed Jews and “heretic” boys hundreds of times more than any Jews ALLEGEDLY committed ritual murder of Christians, young boys, teenaged boys, or any other Christians.

    NOW THE MATTER OF JEWISH INTELLIGENCE:

    Recall that “Jewish” ANYTHING — intelligence, charity, empathy, greed, swindling, goodness, kindness, cruelty, love, hate — is an immensely ambiguous idea: “Jewish” (ethnicity) is a markedly ambiguous term or idea; so is Judaism. SEE ABOVE.

    But, we do have some scientific statistics pertinent to the matter of the intelligence of Ashkenazi Jews, German or European Jews, or American Jews versus the intelligence of other peoples of supposedly other “races” (or ethnicities). One statistical considerations is that of I.Q. test scores and, particularly, Arthur Jensen’s studies and others’ related work of that field.

    I pick Jensen’s studies (and related other work) partly because it fits the White supremacist liking of insisting that Blacks bear intelligence markedly lesser than that of “Whites” (a reality Jensen and others proved irrefutably).

    In Rushton & Jensen, “Race and IQ: A theory-based review of the research in Richard Nisbett’s Intelligence and how to get it,” The Open Psychology Journal, 3, Article 9-35 (2010), https://psycnet.apa.org/record/2011-18869-001 [also published at this site https://benthamopen.com/contents/pdf/TOPSYJ/TOPSYJ-3-9.pdf ], the authors report this range of I.Q.s: “Jewish (mean IQ = 113), East Asian (106), White (100), Hispanic (90), South Asian (87), African American (85), and sub-Saharan African (70). The same findings are reported in Herrnstein & Murray, “The Bell Curve” (New York: Free Press 1994).

    In Arthur Jensen, “Bias in Mental Testing” (THE FREE PRESS, Macmillan, NEW YORK 1980)
    at p.359, this appears:

    “A cross various racial and social-class groups, the prevalence of delinquency is approximately the same at any given IQ level.

    ***** In Rushton & Jensen, “THIRTY YEARS OF RESEARCH ON RACE DIFFERENCES IN COGNITIVE ABILITY,” Psychology, Public Policy, and Law, 2005, V. 11, No. 2, 235-294 (Amer. Psychological Assoc.), https://www1.udel.edu/educ/gottfredson/30years/Rushton-Jensen30years.pdf, the authors state, again, that Jews score highest in I.Q. testing, but the authors add that other considerations also indicate that Jewish intelligence is highest; among such other considerations is brain size, the brain sizes of Jews and East Asians being highest, and East Asian I.Q. being second highest (East Asian mean I.Q. of 106 versus the Jewish mean I.Q. of 113, versus mean White I.Q. of 100).

    High intelligence can be an instrument of good — creation of a better world of less poverty, crime illness, and suffering, and greater joy, charity, and compassion. Or it can be a tool of the worst evils. Just so, Jews have been the among the worst banes — like neoconservatives and neoliberals and the likes of Goldman-Sachs and the government of Zionist Israel and its terrorist history.

But do not inveigh against Jews. Inveigh against all individuals, law firms, governments, and business entities, or social or political organizations — Jewish or Gentile — that do harm rather than either improve public welfare (or Benthamian utility) or do not impair it.

    Thank you for your comment of January 22, 2020 at 4:00 pm GMT (to which this note replies).

    Einstein’s first wife may have supplied a substantial degree of the thinking of Einstein’s theory of relativity.

    Compare Pauline Gagnon, “The Forgotten Life of Einstein’s First Wife,” Scientific American (19 December 2016), https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/the-forgotten-life-of-einsteins-first-wife/
    and “Did Einstein’s First Wife Secretly Coauthor His 1905 Relativity Paper?”, MIT Technology Review ( 18 April 2012), https://www.technologyreview.com/s/427621/did-einsteins-first-wife-secretly-coauthor-his-1905-relativity-paper/

    In the latter article — “Did Einstein’s First Wife Secretly Coauthor His 1905 Relativity Paper” — the author shows his arguments questionable by putting specious “evidence” like this:

    “…[Galina] Weinstein has analysed … letters in detail [certain letters of Albert Einstein and his first wife, Mileva Maric Einstein] and [Weinstein] says that two lines of evidence suggest that…[Mileva’s contribution] was unlikely. First, Einstein’s letters are full of his ideas about physics while Maric’s contain none, suggesting [sic (dangling participle)] that he was using her as a sounding board rather than a collaborator.
    “Second, Maric was not a talented physicist or mathematician. She failed her final examinations and was never granted a diploma.”

    The first “line of evidence” merely begs the question of WHY Albert’s letters bore much physics matter but Mileva’s did not.

    Suppose (as was true) Mileva loved Albert much, and (a traditional 19th Century central European wife) perceived that her role was to be a dutiful, meekly supportive wife and endeavored to help him solve analytic troubles he was suffering in developing his theory by acting as a humble, encouraging listener.

    Also, we know, and no one refutes, that Albert and Mileva spoke, in person, near-incessantly concerning the stuff of which Albert formed his theories of relativity.

    The second “line of evidence” is self-rebutting:

    [MORE]

    Einstein detested typical highschool courses and dropped out when he was 15. Not long later, he tried to enter college in Zurich, but flunked the entrance exam. He did not fail the math portion, but he failed, miserably, the botany, zoology and language sections. While he did not fail the math section, the record does not show how well he passed it. Botany and Zoology are, much, if not wholly, exact sciences, like physics, which, too, is not wholly “exact” (as, we are learning, the two theories of relativity are not exact, but, increasingly questioned and likely will fail).

    The assertion “Maric was not a talented physicist or mathematician” begs the question of what is “talented” and who decides? Albert Einstein worshipers?

    Also, the article “Did Einstein’s First Wife Secretly Coauthor His 1905 Relativity Paper” shows itself rather untrustworthy because (a) it calls a “conspiracy theory” the argument that Mileva contributed to Albert’s theories of relativity and (b) asserts, falsely, that MOST physicists “and historians of science” have rejected that “conspiracy theory.”

    Not only Pauline Gagnon (see supra), but enough others, accord some or much credence to the apprehension that Meleva contributed substantially to Albert’s theories of relativity. See, E.G., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mileva_Maric#Debate_over_collaboration_with_Einstein, which, to exemplify scientific-community support of the argument that Meleva contributed substantially to Einstein’s theories of relativity, cites these sources:

    * Maurer, M. (1990). “Weil nicht sein kann, was nicht sein darf…’DIE ELTERN’ ODER ‘DER VATER’ DER RELATIVITÄTSTHEORIE?

    But, like the Max Planck matter, the Mileva Einstein contribution matter is, ultimately, just barely relevant, even if Mileva contributed much to the development of the theories of relativity. For, this much is indisputable: Even if, merely, Einstein understood, thoroughly, facilely, Max Planck’s pertinent work and merely elaborated upon it to be able to produce the theories of relativity, still Einstein’s work shows great intelligence. Likely something like a spare 0.1% of humans, ever, have had enough intelligence to accomplish that much.

  99. Petermx says:

    “His inference is the contention that Jewish domination of Western cultural, economic and political choke points is a product of natural selection rather than nepotism and propaganda” The fact that in many European countries you can be thrown in jail for saying something Jews don’t like and in other countries (the USA , for instance) your reputation and career will be destroyed (Mel Gibson, Rick Sanchez) certainly plays a part in that viewpoint. Jews became the most protected people in the world since WW II, when they were often disliked, were not showered with praise and were hated in some places (as much as the Germans in other places). They have come a long way. The fact that when WW II is discussed, Jews are only mentioned as victims and their leading role in the USSR and other countries and their role in spreading the war is forbidden to be discussed shows how much effort has been put into improving their reputation. Imagine if the Germans were viewed as playing the same role in WW II. That is how distorted and how much lying was done to create the positive view of the Jews since the war.
