I'm sorry if I was overly curt. It's just that I hate hate hate everything that gnxp represents. It's just another in a long line of moronic pseudoscientific essentialists -- "there's a gene for entrepreneurship and natural selection made the British the bestest!" "Africans have an average IQ of 70 so they're all retards" "I found a paper that said, due to natural selection, Jews are genetically sneaky!" It's a little game of "how racist can we be without getting called on it." They're all getting boners over the tiniest differences in random data, and conveniently ignore factors like CULTURE and SOCIETY. They're fucking morons. Just look at their blogroll -- Sailer, Derb, Charles Murray. The only people who like that shit are straight-up white supremacists and science nerds that haven't caught on to their racket.
I blame Richard Dawkins for it.
