If you missed it, I referenced Jensen’s latest paper below. I guess he hasn’t got word of my Hereditarian debunking.
Nice summary of Rushton’s work by Jensen. I’m surprised they didn’t work together on a paper earlier given their common research areas.
Just speaking of Rushton it’s interesting that his book was well received in the NY Times Book Review. That seemed to cause this academic to have a bit of a meltdown.
Sorry I’ve been away for work and haven’t had time to do any graphs. I did notice though that Razib Khan’s post on race seems to have provoked some discussion on Richarddawkins.net group. I see this classic gets brought up:
“I recall Steve Jones pointing out how related (genetically) human individuals are. If I remember rightly (and I may be wrong with the exact details), Jones described that there would be less genetic differences between say, a white European and a native Australian Aboriginal, than there would be between two chimpanzees in the same troupe.”
I remember Greg Cochran addressed this point on Brad de Long’s site.
“And those baboons have a lot more genetic diversity than dogdom – while dog phenotypes vary wildly, more than any other mammal. The key is correlated genetic differences in coding genes – which is what selection produces.”
Don’t waste your time debating the possibility of differences. It’s 2012. There are migrant populations around the globe. If there are any patterns, they should jump out. The fact that “HBDers” are not interested in looking for such patterns (or interested in checking to see if found patterns hold) is telling to me.
Have you emailed Jensen? btw. For a laugh, check out long haired Rushton (presumably this was taken in the 70’s.
