We have seen the future, and it sucks.

“Charles Murray is once again peddling junk science about race and IQ”

18th May 2017

Read it.

Let’s see, who is more likely to be peddling ‘junk science’, a distinguished academic who publishes the research on which his conclusion are based, or writers for a partisan web site who depend on ‘fairly wide consensus among behavioral scientists’?

As with any such issue, the proper response is SHOW YOUR WORK. We can see Murray’s — he put it in a book, which has been out (and subject to checking) for decades. ‘Consensus’ isn’t evidence, it’s just opinion. SHOW YOUR WORK. Give us the data on which you base your opinions. Point out exactly where Murray’s data are wrong. Don’t just wave your hands about how All Right-Thinking People Agree And So That Answers The Question. SHOW YOUR WORK. This is science, after all. (Or is it…?)

For the lazy, Steve Sailer fisks this hatchet-job here.

    Murray has some interesting and intriguing theories and conclusions. And he does, indeed, show his work.
    Anyone who takes evolution and/or genetic science seriously should read his book.
