Intellectuals and Race

All dogs, regardless of breed, are One_Species - canis familiaris. But there is a reason, e.g., police K9's uses German Shepherds rather than pit bulls. The GS are easier to train (educate - higher IQ) and perform more reliably after training (respond to commands). The pit bulls tend to revert back to their primitive genetic instincts. 1000 years of dog breeding has confirmed that intelligence and behavior are heritable traits..... All humans, regardless of race, are also One_Species - homo sapiens....(ditto) NOTE: You do not have to be politically correct when discussing intelligence and behavior of different dog breeds...

Pit bulls were bred for work that had nothing to do with intellect, the shepherds were...your theory has holes.

BiggDonn should know that there is a tremendous amount of difference and variation among the different breeds of dogs, the different breeds of cats, the different breeds of horses, etc.

Since men and women were created in the image of God, He clearly made a huge distinction between humans and the rest of His creation. There are no such wide variations within the human race.

God views a human with the IQ of an Einstein as an equal of someone born with Downs Syndrome.

The same could apply to human beings - some were bred/created for 'work' while the others were bred for their intellect and to run the world! This goes back to the Cro Magnon and Neanderthal times - it hasn't changed! What they were created to be is what they are and always will be - there are few exceptions to this rule- occasionally in a 'mixed' breed off-spring you will see the 'mix' has produced an unusual contradiction of what that individual was supposed to be - but they are few and far between! I don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to figure this one out - I think you should just follow the KISS principle - you know, KEEP IT SIMPLE Stupid! Everyone wants to take a simple explanation and make it into a federal case!!

Absurd statement... breeding assumes and intellect involved.

Human beings were never "bred". God created each one...

If one could selectively breed humans, like dogs, humans with specialized capabilities could be developed, just like with dogs. The Chinese (without any moral/ethical barriers) are preparing to do this. Google "Inside China's Genome Factory" -- BiggDonn is just the messenger....

Why latch onto ONE word - I do believe both "bred AND created' were used at the same time! Perfect example of taking something out of context and then twisting!!

BiggDonn-I'm gonna google ur "China's Genome Factory" reference-However, I will state right now that I'm sure the Chinese are aware of Hitler's excursion into his "Master Race" adventure. How did that work out?

There are so many fallacies about race that it would be hard to say which is the most ridiculous. However, one fallacy behind many other fallacies is the notion that there is something unusual about different races being unequally represented in various institutions, careers or at different income or achievement levels.

A hundred years ago, the fact that people from different racial backgrounds had very different rates of success in education, in the economy and in other endeavors, was taken as proof that some races were genetically superior to others.

Some races were considered to be so genetically inferior that eugenics...
