Is Nominal Prospect Right?
There seems to be a correlation between the rising influence of gays, women, minorities, the Loony Left, environmentalist whackos, AND the decline of the United States. GM and Chrysler go tits up, unemployment is now over 9% nationwide, businesses often over 100 years old shut down and close, while Obama raises CAFE standards (to crush the autos further) and appoints a bigoted anti-2nd Amendment Hispanic woman to the USSC, to appease the PC crowd. He spends money without thought of consequences and just shrugs when asked, “How?”
Could Nomi be correct? I will say that if all the above forces do cause a true and outright collapse, we should expect some charismatic person like Hitler to take over.
Uhhh. Correlation does not equal causation. Another simple idea that you do not understand and fail to apply. Didn’t you claim to be a teacher at one point?
That’s WHY I said correlation and not causation. If it were causation, we could have deduced that those things caused America’s loss of the ‘Mandate of Heaven’.
East Asians and Caucasians have been shown, as groups, to have the highest IQs on the planet (East Asians 107, Cau 97, Subsaharan Afr 84). Is it any wonder that China, Japan, the USA, and Europe pretty much run the world? Its when peoples other than these 4 groups proliferate into those societies that the 4 societies fall apart and have all sorts of troubles — again a correlation, not causation.
“The culture-only (0% geneticâ??100% environmental) and the hereditarian (50%
geneticâ??50% environmental) models of the causes of mean Blackâ??White differences
in cognitive ability are compared and contrasted across 10 categories of evidence:
the worldwide distribution of test scores, g factor of mental ability, heritability, brain
size and cognitive ability, transracial adoption, racial admixture, regression, related
life-history traits, human origins research, and hypothesized environmental variables.
The new evidence reviewed here points to some genetic component in
Blackâ??White differences in mean IQ. The implication for public policy is that the
discrimination model (i.e., Blackâ??White differences in socially valued outcomes
will be equal barring discrimination) must be tempered by a distributional model
(i.e., Blackâ??White outcomes reflect underlying group characteristics).”
