More haplogroups and National IQ  May 7, 2016 – 11:30 am
More haplogroups and National IQ. July 18, 2012 – 06:45 pm Haplogroups statistically explain 50% of the IQ variance among 42 nations. The amount explained is approximately the same as found by Rindermann et al.; the novelty of this paper is that a globally representative sample is used. Lynn and Vanhanen’s new book, Intelligence: A Unifying Construct for the Social Sciences, which contains updated national IQs for 161 nations is due to release July 16th, so an enterprising researcher can soon replicate the results using a more comprehensive data bank. A novel extension of this line of research would be to look at the National K variance explainable.

Generally, these types of studies don’t seem to be able to reduce the genetic-environmental uncertainty concerning the origin of National IQ differences. (Refer below for a summary of the found biological, ecological, and historic cognitive correlates of national IQs.) They merely increase the a priori plausibility of a genetic hypothesis.


This paper first sets an equation for the average intelligence of a country or a human group, which is determined by genetic factors and other variables where education is one of them. Another equation representing a production function of education depends upon intelligence and different elements that improve the quality of education. These two equations solve for the average level of intelligence and the level of education simultaneously. A third equation is a production function, where the GDP of the country is determined by human capital, physical capital and labor. Human capital is approached by the level of education obtained in the first two equations.

The FDA (uh-oh)

Everything seems to funnel into politics...
So then the FDA determines the protocol of a study, and is the head-honcho of the FDA apointed by the President? If so, does his personal bias extend to funding special research or (worse even) avoiding research? Here I'm thinking about Bush avoiding Stem cell research?
I find this to be a deeply philosophical issue; the root causes of cult...ent, snake oil, or solution.
How does a research scientist account for the variable of human behavior?! These guys actually thought they could get away with it because they did not understand "stuff" is in your blood. It was magic, to them. Now, the culture has progressed and still HIV studies are difficult to conduct because no one wants the placebo.
This is correctly called irony.

It's a really good story

OUR breakfast table was cleared early, and Holmes waited in his dressing-gown for the promised interview. Our clients were punctual to their appointment, for the clock had just struck ten when Dr. Mortimer was shown up, followed by the young baronet. The latter was a small, alert, dark-eyed man about thirty years of age, very sturdily built, with thick black eyebrows and a strong, pugnacious fac... Times among it. The odds are enormously against your finding it. There are ten shillings over in case of emergencies. Let me have a report by wire at Baker Street before evening. And now, Watson, it only remains for us to find out by wire the identity of the cabman, No. 2704, and then we will drop into one of the Bond Street picture galleries and fill in the time until we are due at the hotel.”
