We were all waiting for it (I know I was). “Misdreavus” has chimed in on the hubbub surrounding Nicholas Wade’s A Troublesome Inheritance. Here’s what he has to say:

“Misdreavus”, like Greg Cochran and to an extent myself, likes to use basic common sense examples that quickly demonstrate the error in faulty propositions. There is no need to make things more complicated than they need to be. Indeed, barest bones simplicity (that sufficiently explains ALL the facts) is the goal of science. However, in the human sciences (not just HBD and psychology, but health science as well), this Occam’s – or perhaps Einstein’s Razor thinking is rejected, because it leads to a priori unacceptable conclusions. This particular bout was set off by anthropologist Jonathan Mark’s review of Wade book. Mark’s review, titled “The Genes Made Us Do It: The new pseudoscience of racial difference,” is a pile of steaming, pungent bullshit. Within, he denounces Wade’s book with one false claim after another, taking the tactic of merely laying down the P.C. orthodoxy on race. I left a comment there debunking all this nuttiness, but “Misdreavus” has taken over the top.

Misdreavus has also taken on the nonsense of another critical scientist, anthropological geneticist Jennifer Raff. Raff had a rather lengthy Twitter duel with HBD Chick on Saturday, one in which several others (including me) took part. Raff however ignored everyone else in the thread, especially me. I’d imagine a female HBD blogger (HBD Chick) was bad enough to deal with, much less a Black one. Misdreavus adds the extra element of a non-White, gay HBD’er into mix. Raff also promised her own review of Wade’s book. To that, I say, Dr. Raff, if you are reading I surely hope you take what Misdreavus has said here into account when you write your review.

  1. […] Jonathan Marks: “The Genes Made Us Do It:  The new pseudoscience of racial difference”  (This ideological hit piece is strong evidence that cultural anthropology is now more of a religion than an actual science.  Marks interestingly used to study genetics and hard science (and was briefly on Sailer’s email list), but then denounced science all in favor of Marxist critiques of culture.  Marks has even denounced genetics as a “political ideology“.  LOLs.   Old Sailer piece on Marks. Jayman responds. Outsideness parodying Marks: “Left-wing ideology is far more objective than genetic science. Hitler pretty much invented DNA out of pure hate.” Misdreavus responds here.) […]

    Jonatan Marks in one of his books has very positive things to say about one of the early creationists – that yes, he was wrong, but for good reasons, because he opposed racism. I guess this pretty much summarizes the attitude Marks has about the science.

    My favorite example of assimilation is southern Sweden, called Scania. It was taken from Denmark 1658, and they still behave as Danes, more ballsy and politically incorrect, more into visual and performing arts etc. Many even want to belong to Denmark and have a referendum about it. And that’s after living in Sweden for 356 years. That’s between two similar countries who have no special ethnic or religious conflicts, disputes over natural resources or anything of that sort.
