[QUOTE="Clyde C Coger Jr, post: 930631, member: 12718" You ask, how exactly? In this way ...

Going back to the title: Born that way? ‘Scientific’ racism is creeping back into our thinking. Here’s what to watch out for, we see Born that Way and "Scientific" racism is creeping back into our thinking.

But first, the idea is that a reader/poster would click the link and read the full article, since we are only able to post an excerpt of it. Inside the article, there is this:


"... Here’s how the argument goes. Some people are born with outstanding talents, easily mastering basketball, mathematics, languages or piano, if given the right environment in which to grow. What biologist or social scientist could argue with that?

But alongside that genetic understanding, an old and pernicious assumption has crept back into the American conversation, in which aptitudes are supposedly inherited by race: certain peoples are thought to have rhythm, or intellect, or speed or charm. That’s a fast track toward the old 19th- and early 20th-century problem of “scientific” racism.

Consider a recent paper that argues that ethnic conflict throughout history is a result of genetic diversity among communities. The authors argue that genetic diversity is the dominant force behind conflict among groups.

It pushes religious communities into battle, causes distrust among neighbors and dictates support for problematic social policies. Such an argument places the history and future of human conflict in genes, as if human interaction and environmental influences cannot match their power
..."

Hopefully, after reading the above, you may come to understood why I posted the article in this Thread, rightly or wrongly.

NO, I’m still struggling Clyde, because isn’t it a fact that homosexuality transcends Race, Creed, Colour in that aren’t there Gays in virtually every nation on the planet, amongst ALL of humanity’s so diverse ethnic groupings, but isn’t its connection to Eugenics/Sceintific Racism tenuous at best?

Though I’ve known personally individuals who genuinely didn’t want to be Gay, just happened to be Born that Way, however with regard to Eugenics making a comeback, being taken even a little bit seriously by scientists, are you genuinely unaware of the manner in which the Eugenics posse/White Supremacist Racist NUTCASES have been CRUSHED [Adolf Hitler must have been traumatized/totally gutted] by both the Palaentologists and the Geneticists agreeing that the ORIGINAL man definitely wasn’t Caucasion/White; he was an ancestor of either today’s African Pygmies or Khosa Bushmen [as verified by the large number of mutations on their Mitochondrial DNA profile]?

[QUOTE="Clyde C Coger Jr, post: 930699, member: 12718" Try not to struggle with this Orisons, but first, let's determine which camp we are in, respectively. This may help you better understand my perspective.


Obviously, I'm in the camp which views homosexuality as learned behavior. While you appear to be in the camp of "born this way." Please correct me in your next post, if necessary.

With this understanding, I reject that homosexuality transcends, race, color and creed; as well as, gays just happened to be born that way. On what evidence Clyde, did the male of Irish ethnicity that I grew up with CHOOSE to not play soccer, ride bicycles all over town, follow the usual macho pursuits of childhood/youth that his elder and younger siblings did with all of the rest of US?

Why would he or anyone choose a path that would cause them so much turmoil in their life, totally alienate them from most of their friends, family and social circle [which probably explains why despite being so very obviously effeminate all of his life he didn't actually COME OUT as Gay until he was 20 years old]?


Apart from not answering ANY questions at all in the direct manner possible Clyde, why would I dismiss my own personal experience of the so very torturous anguish that an Irish comtemporary of mine experienced as a youth trying to get through adolescence before coming out as Gay because various "Scientists" profess otherwise?

I didn't say that ALL Gays are Born that Way [who knows what percentage of people are malleable enough to follow social directives /cultural programming with regard to their sexuality] whereas isn't it a patently obvious fact that most people are not?

Scientific racism, creeps into our thinking speak for yourself, if we aren't careful to recognize the fact. To repeat, it does so in this manner:

It pushes religious communities into battle, causes distrust among neighbors and dictates support for problematic social policies. Such an argument places the history and future of human conflict in genes, as if human interaction and environmental influences cannot match their power..."

...

/QUOTE] Clyde, is there a specific reason why you continue to totally ignore my question underlined above with regard to the so very comprehensive manner in which Scientific Racism/Eugenics has been BURIED/totally debunked by scientists /SCIENCE, whereas what can anyone do about the somewhat RETARDED DIMWITS who continue to embrace it other than avoid them as much as possible? Well Clyde?

Are you saying or thinking that I embrace Eugenics? If so, you are dead wrong. The whole world knows the fallacy of Eugenics. Exactly what is the difference between Eugenics and the "Scientific Racism" that you assert [above] is the source of a lot of Humanity's GRIEF in the 21st century?

[QUOTE="Clyde C Coger Jr, post: 930853, member: 12718" Help me to understand what you are saying exactly, is it a question or a statement?

But are you denying my statement that Eugenics is a fallacy?

Did I not ask you a question Orisons, where's the answer?

...

/QUOTE]
As the person who has stated [above] that Eugenics isn't so much a fallacy as opposed to very dated White Supremacist Racist GARBAGE, I am asking YOU yet again precisely what is the difference between Eugenics and the "scientific racism" you allege is clouding humanity's [YOUR] thinking [what is all this RUNNING/HIDING about]?


Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

Orisons, why are you running and hiding from my question:


Are you saying or thinking that I embrace Eugenics?

(If so, you are dead wrong. The whole world knows the fallacy of Eugenics)

No, I'm not joking Orisons, stop playing these silly games and answer the question(s). What's underlined doesn't answer the question(s), at all:


Help me to understand what you are saying exactly, is it a question or a statement?

But are you denying my statement that Eugenics is a fallacy?

Did I not ask you a question Orisons, where's the answer?



If you cannot provide simple answers to the above, don't expect me to continue in this exercise of folly.
