Race, Evolution and Intelligence




 Stefan Molyneux speaks to Dr. Linda Gottfredson about the differences in human intelligence, the gap in established knowledge between academia and the general public, the difference between general intelligence factor and IQ, disputing the Flynn Effect, the work of J. Phillip Rushton and the challenges of pursuing politically incorrect research.

  1. Hi Brock,
    Let's get something straight...."There are NO CONSTANTS IN THE UNIVERSE!!!!" The last "Constant" the Scientific Community had was "TIME" and as we all know, Mr. Einstein threw that under the bus a long, long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away!!! And!!, even before that, Sam Clements said,"There are are Lies, Damned lies and Statistics!!"
    Now, everybody in the Scientific Community uses "Stats" to "Prove" everything!!! Trouble is that "Pesky .05 level of significance!!!" Had a Psych Prof at Sandyeggo State that had a bumper sticker saying "Pray for the .05 Level" on his office door!! That's a numbers game saying that there are "5 chances in a thousand that all your research is "NOT" co-incidental!!!" Good 'Vegas odds!!
    Funny how that goes......."Stats," "Term Papers" and all the "Research" you can argue about your Theory don't mean $#!t against the 230gr. projectile coming your way at 980fps!!
    And they(all those Liberals) think we will unilaterally disarm!!!
    As Frank would say........"R-I-G-H-T-!!!!!!"
    I still have my Gunz.......OUTLAW!!!!!,

    1. Theory don't mean $#!t against the 230gr. projectile coming your way at 980fps!

      :) Indeed.

  2. "you don't need 30 rounds to hunt with"

    I guess that depends on what you are hunting.

  3. WOW, I have heard this at the fringes but the first time I ever heard it laid out so well. Congratulations to Linda Gottfredson and Stefan Molyneux for having to courage to present this. I am sure they will be crucified for stating the truth. But this is the truth. There is a reason for the disparity in success and social neighborhood between the races. After the last fifty years of social promotion of blacks yet they fare no better today than they did in the 1950s. In fact, I could argue black communities are far worse off today than they were in the 40s and 50s. Of course this will be ignored as "racist" and dismissed.


    1. Both black and white families, at least the ones who I was familiar with, could be poor, but they were proud. Jeans may have had rips in them, but they were dutifully patched and clean. The sky, has indeed, fallen.

  4. you don't need 30 rounds to hunt with.
    nd you don't need 8 cylinders, 7 gears, 400 horsepower and top speeds of 120+mph to get to work every day either.
    it's called a SPORTS CAR...for a reason....because, even if it's unnecessary, it's fun.
    they are called SPORTING RIFELS for a reason....because they are fun. stop clling them "assault rifels"...they do not have an "auto" position on the selector. and correct anyone who missspeaks when talking aabout sporting guns
