    I never believe man are equal. I can learn senior
    high school physics all by myself easily in a few days when I was 14 years old. My English was the second worst among my classmates in middle school.
    Some are good at math, some are not.

    All men are equal is impossible physiologically nor politically.

    Some civilization has Merit System. Ancient China has Imperial examination through out the history since Han dynasty which is 2000+ years ago, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial_examination.

    While India has Caste System for thousands of years.

    There is no way the IQ will be the same.

    While in Africa, it was in the earlier period of civilization. There is no way the IQ is the same to those highly civilized society.

    The blacks were discriminated in U.S. for many reasons, and you know why.

    LOL, UNZ? This "author" actually peer reviewed by anyone and published?...or just himself? Any direct sampling, or just more "believe us, we know" conspiracy-hack stuff? It says there is explanation of methodology, but where is it? So good it can't be revealed?

    Unz is great platform regardless one of few platform you get all viewpoints in one place

    True, alternate viewpoints are fun and stuff...but I find lot of their stuff is more surface layer stuff rather than delve into the underlying facts and analysis. But let me see what viva zhao has to say, if he knows the "methodology" in lot of these IQ studies. I have only seen one so far that actually does a comprehensive direct sampling (in UK ethnic groups)

    James Watson
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Watson#Comments_on_race

    Watson, Crick and Maurice Wilkins were awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine "for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material".

    Natural Science is science, politics should stay away from science, and vice versa

    Yes I know about the watson statement and its controversy. It got brought up much earlier with other scientists on 5HT receptor research...in how there are differences between populations.

    The issue is most of the time this is only contrasted between the extremes (white and black...and it ends up being too controversial to proceed as result)...there are no underlying direct sampling and correlation for other population groups. Just like there is no direct sampling of IQs of national populations in comprehensive study.

    "Inferred" methodology (most popular in the internet clickbait) is just not a substitute for direct sampling (before we even get to IQ vs final functional intelligence arguments), should we say Chinese were "low IQ/intelligence" at their worst relative development time period (say 1940s?)

    As a scientific analysis, people sampled should have similar education back ground in the similar age and nutriture.

    You should compare difference races in the U.S. Or different races in China.

    I am not a racist, but I don't believe all men are equal neither.

    I believe some are good at math, some are good at art, some are good at sports, and so on. My English sucks, my physics is good.

    I mostly agree, I just put direct data for all this stuff as the only standard to measure. If its IQ, then you got to design sample survey with direct measurement of IQ...simple. The quoted IQ comparisons do not do that....they infer too much. Its not good science to me. Just measure what you say you want to measure, period.
