Um I think everyone invented the wheel its like saying who invented fire.  I dunno man but I'm pretty sure there are some African languages which Africans write in.

 ... it is just that use of the wheel (simple machines), permanent shelter,
cloth production, written language, animal husbandry, etc, are common measures
of civilized culture ... along with the absence of 'savagery' = cannibalism,
human sacrifice, 'public' nudity/sex, etc.

.... this 'essay' is a good overview of the
question of the 'noble savage' ... the questions
that civilized man has asked himself about primitives
since history began.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Myth of the Noble Savage
February 24, 2016

Federal Liberal MP Dennis Jensen has come under attack for telling Parliament the Australian government should not be funding people to live a “noble savage” lifestyle in remote Indigenous communities. To link the idea of the “noble savage” to Indigenous Australians in 2016 is unquestionably offensive, but to understand why it’s worthwhile probing the term’s chequered history.

The modern myth of the noble savage is most commonly attributed to the 18th-century Enlightenment philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau. He believed the original “man” was free from sin, appetite or the concept of right and wrong, and that those deemed “savages” were not brutal but noble.


Shipwreck of the Stirling Castle, John Curtis, 1838.

His noble savage, considered in Emile, ou de l'Education (1762), Reveries of a Solitary Walker (1782) and Confessions (1768), was a shining beacon to 18th-century Europe.

The idea can be found also in theology as an explanation for the degeneration of 18th-century society. The founder of the Methodist Church, John Wesley, claimed that,

in the beginning man was made right with regular, pure affections.

But “he” became diseased and degenerated, obsessed with the things of the world.

James Cook brought Enlightenment ideas and sciences to the South Seas in his journeys around the Pacific, and was perhaps expressing Rousseau-style sentiments when he described Australian Aborigines in noble savage tones:

They live in a Tranquillity which is not disturb’d by the Inequality of Condition: The Earth and sea of their own accord furnishes them with all things necessary for life, they covet not Magnificent Houses, Household-stuff, they live in a warm and fine Climate and enjoy a very wholesome Air, so that they have very little need of Clothing …
They were, Cook famously declared in his Endeavour journals, “far more happier than we Europeans”.


Through the 19th century, as empires swallowed Indigenous lands, the idea of the noble savage receded and the reverse negative stereotype of the dangerous, brutal savage prevailed.

Both typecasts relied on the idea that the Indigenous peoples of the world were in an original state, “primitive”, “backward”, the ancient ancestor to “modern man”, the infants of humanity. Metaphors of time forged the social relationships of colonialism.

The noble savage re-emerged with Karl Marx’s critique of empire in the mid to late 19th century. It was expressed most powerfully by his partner, Friedrich Engels, who tied his revolutionary hunger for freedom from Victorian restrictions to the belief that human societies were originally led by women, and were characterised by the absence of jealousy and a state of almost free love.

In his famous fourth edition of Origins (1894), Engels claimed that the most perfect example of this society could be found among Australian Aborigines.

Engels berated those who argued for the brutal savage, for those “philistines in their brothel-tainted imagination” who viewed Aboriginal sexual relations with abhorrence.

Many historians and anthropologists have questioned his reading of the Australian texts, in particular Fison and Howitt’s landmark study of Aboriginal and Pacific Island societies, Kamilaroi and Kurnai (1880), that formed the basis of his analysis.

Engels’ noble savage proved particularly tenacious through the 20th century and became a kind of pagan foundation for the Soviet State, an argument against both Christianity and the West.

Free love was held to be the gift of the revolution, an attempt to recreate the perceived sexual freedom of Indigenous peoples.

The idea of the noble savage became a romantic foil to the alienation and inequities of capitalism and was restated by the neo-Marxists of the 1970s.

Yet another version of the noble savage can be found in New Age romanticism. Indigenous peoples are credited with special powers, such as healing or enhanced spirituality. New Age practitioners might seek to recreate or dance through Indigenous ceremonies, often with little idea of their original meanings.

Dream catchers and unattributed dot paintings on bags produced in China prove that there is money to be made from this model of the myth.

Scholars have long recognised that both the noble and the brutal savage are fantasies of the European mind that kept Indigenous peoples in a suspended state of either elevated purity or perpetual evil.

The noble savage binds Indigenous peoples to an impossible standard. The brutal savage, by contrast, becomes the pre-emptive argument for Indigenous failings.

The ideal of the noble savage has led to considerable derision. James Cook’s most famous biographer, J.C. Beaglehole, dismissed Cook’s passage on Aborigines as,

preposterous sublimity, this nonsense on stilts.

Scientist: Negroes Bred With Pre-Humans


https://nationalvanguard.org/2016/12/scientist-negroes-bred-with-pre-humans/

Introduction by David Sims: The reason humanoids didn’t evolve as much in Africa as they did elsewhere is that, elsewhere, lesser species of humanoid were driven out or exterminated, whereas in Africa they were tolerated and mixed with. And here we are, today, in the United States, in the UK, and in Europe, making the same mistake that caused the Africans to be the obsolete hominids that they are.

SCIENTISTS HAVE COLLECTED more evidence to suggest that ancient and modern humans interbred in Africa.

Reanalysis of the 13,000-year-old skull from a cave in West Africa reveals a skull more primitive-looking than its age suggests.

The result suggests that the ancestors of early humans did not die out quickly in Africa, but instead lived alongside their descendents and bred with them until comparatively recently.

Honduras Declares Curfew as Protests Over Vote Count Continue
By ELISABETH MALKINDEC. 2, 2017


MEXICO CITY — The Honduran government imposed a curfew on Friday and ordered security forces to move against protesters blocking roads and bridges, escalating a political crisis over the disputed count of votes from the presidential election last weekend.

The announcement late Friday came after what began as peaceful demonstrations by supporters of the opposition candidate, Salvador Nasralla, turned violent in some places. The government said the curfew would go into effect for 10 days, during which time anyone found outdoors between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. could be arrested.

The move by the government of President Juan Orlando Hernández, who is seeking a second term, prompted fears that he might try to find a way to stay in office even if the final vote count went against him.

Who still opposes eugenics ?

Eugenics exists today and has been accepted by mainstream medicine.

EXAMPLE
The rate of Australian babies born with Down syndrome is approximately 1:1,100.
This is lower than the worldwide rate of around 1 in 700 because of the high termination rates in Australia.

Migrants from west Africa being ‘sold in Libyan slave markets’
UN migration agency says selling of people is rife in African nation that has slid into violent chaos since overthrow of Gaddafi
Emma Graham-Harrison
Monday 10 April 2017 14.43 EDT 

West African migrants are being bought and sold openly in modern-day slave markets in Libya, survivors have told a UN agency helping them return home.

Trafficked people passing through Libya have previously reported violence, extortion and slave labour. But the new testimony from the International Organization for Migration suggests that the trade in human beings has become so normalised that people are being traded in public.

“The latest reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages [in Libya],” said Mohammed Abdiker, IOM’s head of operation and emergencies. “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”

...
Why do academic tomes like Wealth and the IQ of Nations insist that the average Sub-Saharan African’s IQ is 30-40 points lower than an East Asian’s IQ?  How can that book give Hong Kong an IQ of 106 and Equatorial Guinea a mere 59?

...
My ambition in this essay is both humanitarian and techno-progressive; after explaining the causes, I’ll propose attainable solutions that can elevate Sub-Saharan IQ and alleviate suffering.

The Sub-Saharan’s 800 million population is anticipated to rise to 1.5 billion by 2050, according to United Nations reports. It has the highest fertility rate in the world, and the lowest life expectancy. Nigeria will be primarily used in this essay as a source of dismal statistics, because it is the most populous nation in the region, with 160 million citizens.
....

GENETICS - Adding to the multiple environmental factors listed above are at least two genetic circumstances that damage IQ. Both problems could be alleviated with improved social, educational, and health policies. The two genetic factors are sickle-cell disease and cousin marriage.

 The Sub-Saharan has the highest prevalence in the world in sickle-cell disease, with up to 2% of all children born with the genetic blood disorder. A 2011 Emma Children’s Hospital study at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam discovered that children with sickle-cell disease were at-risk for lower intelligence and executive dysfunction, with possible deficits in visual-spatial working memory, attention, and planning.  The impact was significant: “More than one in three children with SDC had a full-scale IQ below 75.”

Cousin marriage, known as “consanguinity,” is prevalent in many Sub-Saharan groups.  In Nigeria it is practiced by the 18 million members of the Hausa tribe, preferentially in marrying patrilateral parallel cousins. The custom is also common among the Yoruba.  Cousin marriage increases the risk of birth defects, due to sharing of the genes. In 1993, an Aligarh Muslim University report from India study showed an IQ drop of 11.2 points (from 99.6 to 88.4) in the offspring of cousin marriages.

I suspect all these IQ tests are nonsense but even if it's not what the IQ tests show is that it can't be applied to reality and it doesn't mean a group of people or individuals will do better than people with lower IQs.

New York terror attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov pleads not guilty



NEW YORK -- The man charged in the deadly Halloween terror attack in lower Manhattan pleaded not guilty in federal court Tuesday, CBS New York reports.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, is accused of driving a rented pickup truck down a bicycle path, killing eight people and injuring a dozen others.

Saipov was shot by a police officer after his truck hit a school bus.

Investigators said Saipov wrote two notes pledging his loyalty to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.

Authorities said Saipov waived his Miranda rights while in custody at a hospital and admitted to carrying out the attack after being inspired by ISIS videos that he had watched on his phone.

He allegedly planned the attack for Halloween in hopes of hitting more people and intended to continue the attack on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Saipov was indicted last week on eight counts of murder, 12 counts of attempted murder and supporting a terror group.

Saipov is eligible for the death penalty.

October 31, 2017
MAJOR roads in South Africa were brought to a crawl on Monday amid protests against brutal attacks on white farmers.
...
Participants wore black in memory of those killed. At the same time the protests were taking place, an elderly man was hacked to death with a machete on his vegetable farm in the northern town of Vryheid.

According to AfriForum, the murder of Bokkie Potgieter brings the total number of white farmers killed this year to 72 in more than 340 farm attacks, which are typically characterised by extreme brutality, rape and torture.

Are protesters right on South Africa farm murder rate?
   3 November 2017


"Genoeg is genoeg."

Enough is enough. That was the message on Monday, as (mostly white) activists carried crosses and blocked roads to demand better protection for South Africa's farms, after they were targeted in a spate of murders.

The South African Police Service has argued that the majority of attackers are motivated purely by a desire to rob farmers, but the country's Institute of Race Relations has warned there may be a racial element to some of the attacks.

There's a sense in some quarters that white farmers are being targeted in particular.

Many have claimed in recent weeks that South Africa's farmers are more likely to be murdered than the average South African.

just a point ... the EQ of people is as relevant a IQ ...

https://psychology-tools.com/empathy-quotient/

The Empathy Quotient (EQ) is a 60-item questionnaire (there is also a shorter, 40-item version) designed to measure empathy in adults. The test was developed by Simon Baron-Cohen at ARC (the Autism Research Centre) at the University of Cambridge.

Clinically, the empathy measurements provided by the EQ are used by mental health professionals in assessing the level of social impairment in certain disorders like Autism. However, since levels of empathy vary significantly between individuals, even between those without any mental health disorders, it is also suitable for use as a casual measure of temperamental empathy by and for the general population.

Below is a list of statements. Please read each statement carefully and rate how strongly you agree or disagree with it by selecting the circle under your answer. There are no right or wrong answers, or trick questions.

Psychopaths VS Aspies: Who Has More Empathy?
By Jessika Endsley

It happens to be a fact that Psychopaths indeed have more empathy than people with Aspergers Syndrome.
Yes I just said that.

Yes I have the research: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23431793

Read that. (PDF mirror)

Psychopaths have the classic hallmark of a disturbing lack of empathy. This is part of the Bob Hare checklist. Psychopaths show no remorse, no guilt, and seemingly feel no emotions that are not feigned and mimicked. Aspergers Syndrome presents itself with a lack of empathy, although less "disturbing" than that of a psychopath due to the inability to sense what others are feeling and therefore coming across as much less predatory. Although both are disconnected from the norms of society, all human beings are social creatures. As I have said before, the difference in the empathy of Psychopaths/Sociopaths and Aspies is that the former is a social predator and the latter is social prey.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empathy_quotient

Empathy quotient (EQ) is a psychological self-report measure of empathy developed by Simon Baron-Cohen and Sally Wheelwright at the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge. EQ is based on a definition of empathy that includes cognition and affect. According to the authors of the measure, empathy is a combination of the ability to feel an appropriate emotion in response to another's emotion and the ability to understand the others' emotion (associated with the theory of mind). EQ was developed in response to what the authors considered to be a lack of questionnaires which measure empathy exclusively: other measures such as the questionnaire measure of emotional empathy and the empathy scale have multiple factors which are uncorrelated with empathy, often associated with social skills or the ability to be emotionally aroused in general.[1] EQ was designed to test the empathizing–systemizing theory, a theory which places individuals in different brain-type categories based on their tendencies toward empathy and system creation, and was intended especially for clinical use to determine the role of lack of empathy in psychopathology, in particular to screen for autism spectrum disorder.[2]
...
The instrument is scored on a scale of 0 (being the least empathetic possible) to 80 (being the most empathetic possible). A useful cut-off of 30 was established when screening for autism spectrum disorders.[
...
This theory is consistent with the findings that individuals with autism score significantly higher scores on the systemizing quotient and lower scores on the empathizing quotient than the general population
...

Sweden: Migrant Who Participated in 20-Man Gang Rape of Woman Tells Police it Was “Fun”
Victim tried to get help, but was ignored & insulted by locals
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com -
December 4, 2017
,..

A migrant who took part in a 20-man gang rape of a woman in a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden told police that the experience was a “fun joke”.

The incident occurred last summer in the Fittja area of the Swedish capital. 20 men were involved in the brutal gang rape, which took place in a stairwell, but police were only able to identify and charge five of the culprits, all of whom were migrants from Somali and Iraq.
...
The migrants smashed the woman’s head against the staircase, knocking her unconscious, as well as threatening her with a knife.

The migrants laughed and filmed the scene on their cellphones as the attack unfolded. During a police interview, one of the attackers said the entire ordeal was a “fun joke” to the men.
...
... the incident is one of the worst rape incidents she has dealt with in 26 years of practice, saying that the attackers inflicted “torture-like trauma” on her client.
...
... since Sweden began accepting more Muslim migrants in 2015, rapes have increased by 14% since last year. A recent poll also found that half of young women in the country felt insecure walking the streets.

 El Salvador: what is the average IQ?
El Salvador Avg. IQ: 80

Long Island MS-13 task force finds third body in 2 weeks
October 28th 2017

An FBI task force in New York City's Long Island suburbs, targeting the MS-13 street gang, found a third body Saturday as part of a search for victims of gang-related violence that began two weeks ago.

The remains were found in a heavily-wooded area near Nassau County’s Meadowbrook Parkway in Merrick, according to reports.
...
In March, Nassau police found the body of Cesar Gonzales-Espantzay, 19, in the park, according to reports. Police say he had been stabbed and shot by MS-13 gang members seeking to improve their status in the gang.
...
On Oct. 19, the FBI task went to a wooded area in Roosevelt and found the body of 16-year-old Eric Soler, whom authorities believe was killed by MS-13 members, Newsday reported, citing sources.

A tip from the federal Department of Homeland Security led the FBI to that spot, according to reports.

Soler, a student at Freeport High School, had been missing for three months.

NBC New York reported Thursday that six young people with known connections to MS-13 and other gangs are missing in Nassau County.

http://www.wnyc.org/story/teens-accused-ms-13-affiliation-start-returning-long-island/
...
A federal judge in Northern California granted immigration judges temporary authority to release unaccompanied minors from detention if they are convinced they do not pose a danger.

A 17-year-old, who goes by the initials F.E., was the first to be released under the ruling.

"I thought I’d never see my 'Mami' again," he said in Spanish. "And I just kept telling myself that God knows well who I am and that he was going to help me get out."

He’s back in Brentwood, Long Island, after being held for five months.

"I have this fear," he said. "Like [police and immigration agents] are going to come back. I don’t want to leave my house."   

According to federal court documents, as well as police and school records obtained by WNYC, this was the evidence presented against F.E.: Police told immigration agents the teen was seen at school, and in a car, with confirmed MS-13 members. Police said he was fighting on a soccer field, and later added he was "in the presence of MS-13 members" at the time. They said the teen admitted to them that he associates with gang members. He was cutting class, and he had the numbers 503 written in a notebook. It’s the international calling code to El Salvador, where he’s from, but police consider it a gang symbol.

...

The Department of Justice declined to comment on the judge's decision. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Suffolk County Police Commissioner, who has been collaborating with immigration agents to combat the presence of MS-13 on Long Island, did not respond to requests for comment. But police commissioner Timothy Sini told News 12 he stands by "every single detention" his department collaborated on, and said he makes no apologies for his strategy.

When WNYC first spoke to F.E. from immigration detention in July, he had been in the U.S. for two years, but knew no English. He started learning inside by reading children’s books, including one called Kenny and the Little Kickers.

the true IQ average for China is likely closer to 101-102.

The very high score of Shanghai (111.6) is surely for the most part a reflection of its long status as a magnet of Chinese cognitive elites.

Still no explanation as to why asian countries aren't the most advanced and more civilised.  China, North Korea, Cambodia and Japanese during WW2.

... just WOW!

"Scientific knowledge itself is gendered, raced, and colonizing."

Purdue Professor Argues Tough College
Courses Reinforce White Privilege

TOM CICCOTTA - 12 Dec 2017

According to a report from Campus Reform, Riley, in an astonishing feat of vague postmodern writing, published an article in the most recent issue of the academic journal Engineering Education in which she argued that the concept of academic “rigor” is used as a means to exclude students from marginalized groups from academic communities.

THE REPORT HERE: https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10257

“One of rigor’s purposes is, to put it bluntly, a thinly veiled assertion of white male (hetero)sexuality,” she explains. According to Riley, rigor “has a historical lineage of being about hardness, stiffness, and erectness; its sexual connotations—and links to masculinity in particular—are undeniable.”

“My visceral reaction in many conversations where I have seen rigor asserted has been to tell parties involved (regardless of gender) to whip them out and measure them already,” Riley added.

Riley vaguely defines academic rigor as “the aspirational quality academics apply to disciplinary standards of quality.”

“Rigor may be a defining tool, revealing how structural forces of power and privilege operate to exclude men of color and women, students with disabilities, LGBTQ+ people, first-generation and low-income students, and non-traditionally aged students” she expands.

Riley also contends that scientific knowledge itself has a racial bias. “Scientific knowledge itself is gendered, raced, and colonizing,” she claimed, going on to argue it is “inherent masculinist, white, and global North bias…all under a guise of neutrality.”

“We need these other ways of knowing to critique rigor, and to find a place to start to build a community for inclusive and holistic engineering education,” she concludes.

Quick Summary :
European IQ 96 to 115
Amercian IQ 85 to 105

Incidentally, all countries IQ are in fact 100.   


Who are more intelligent - Europeans or Americans?


https://www.iqelite.com/en/european_or_american/

 In the past, Europe appeared to be the most intelligent and strongest continent in the world – mainly due to their colonization – i.e. the British Empire and Europe helping countries follow the European model of Industrialization.

A book by two European academics listed the average National IQ for 190 countries. Not surprisingly, they found America right around the ‘average’ score of 100. Whereas they identified the mean IQ of mainland Europe to be 108 – above average.

Calculating and identifying the Intelligence Quotient of nations has always, and will always be seen as highly controversial and extremely criticized. But they have ‘always’ been backed up with facts and figures. If you want proof that Americans are smarter than Europeans, find out for yourselves, but I'm not so sure.

Literacy can always be an additional measure of Intelligence. According to the C.I.A. (and we all know how smart they are: intelligence is their middle name) - I am using this example for the benefit of the American readers - adult literacy in the United States is about the same as in Australia, and Canada. If you want to use higher education as your benchmark, the U.S. fares a little better than the other two examples; a 2005 study by the Educational Policy Institute showed the U.S. had the highest University attainment rate of 13 other countries, with 31 percent of those between ages 25 and 34 having completed a four-year degree.

You have most likely noticed Europe was not used as a comparison for this example – this is understandable once you remember there is the likes of the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge in England, the University of Heidelberg in Germany, Paris, Rome…the list goes on. In America, all anyone associates with their education is Harvard and Yale. So there is not nearly as much comparison.

Europeans are more intelligent and better educated than Americans due to the fact they are generally exposed to many different cultures at an earlier age.

Europeans are thought to present themselves as better dressed and more ‘worldly’, unless they are from Scotland. Do Europeans have a better education system? Yes. Do they present themselves with more class? Yes. We all know people from Europe, they are the most sophisticated, well dressed and articulate people we meet. Especially if they are from England, Italy, France and Scandinavia.

The cultural differences between Europe and America are vast. What Europeans do have, is a more realistic, relaxed life style. Life seems to be more appreciated than American's. Italians, for example, take several hours for lunch, have wine and rest. At the same time, many Europeans eat at their desks at work. Before the invasion of Fast food restaurants in Europe, they ate more sensibly than Americans. The average family in Europe lives a very simple life with few luxuries. Americans are very materialistic. They are in need of the latest gadget, the newest car, the biggest house.

Okay. Now the ‘boring’ factual stuff to back up the arguments.

Several Independent researchers have repeatedly confirmed:

1. The geographical distribution of intelligence,

2. The relationship between intelligence and brain size,

3. The geographical distribution of brain size, and

4. The hereditary factor of IQ, all have contributing factors toward the intelligence of nations and individuals.

(Readers seeking a more extensive summary and for a complete discussion of how brain size and IQ explain much of human behaviour and are in turn explained by human evolution can perform further independent research of their own).

1. The geographical distribution of intelligence. Europeans having an average higher IQ than Americans has been researched and confirmed for over 100 years. North America typically average IQs in the range of 85 to 105. Europe typically averages IQs of . European children, especially from Britain and Ireland, average higher than all American children

2. The relationship between intelligence and brain size. Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), constructing three-dimensional models of the brain, shows a positive correlation between brain size and IQ, as replicable a set of results as can be found in the social and behavioural sciences.

3. The parallel geographical distribution of brain size. A recent MRI study found that people of American background averaged a smaller brain volume than did those of European background.

4. The heritability of intelligence. The heritability of intelligence, as critically analysed from numerous studies, finds IQ about 50% heritable. So if your own IQ is not that high, you know which continent to send your children to be educated.

Even though the reports provided studies analysed and general thoughts and feelings from nations around the world, the results of Intelligence between Europeans and Americans is much closer than it appears. No-one should feel disheartened. No-one should feel upset. No-one can help where they are born. We all deal with our situations as best we can. Relations between Europe and America have never been as strong as it is today, and it will only continue to grow and develop for many decades to come.

IQ is measured relative to the whole population, in such a way that the average should be equal to 100 (which is why IQ tests regularly undergo a process of norming).

However, since the quality of education has been improving steadily in most countries, a person scoring 100 on a modern standard IQ test would have scored around 120 on an IQ test from 1950 (this is called the Flynn effect).

Incidentally if you want a practical way to assess another adults IQ, simply bring up the Death Penalty and find out if they are for or against.
Its a quick and dirty test, and the result of yes or no will give you a probability of intelligence or lack of it.

But, if you ask over time such simple questions its very easy to give a crude assessment.
All the questions need to be of a yes or no nature, and that the question does reflect intelligence and not anything else...

The example question I gave, is known to divide people of low and mediocre intelligence from the truly intelligent.

Melbourne Car Attack Was Not Connected to Terrorism, Police Say
By TACEY RYCHTER and GERRY MULLANY
DEC. 21, 2017

MELBOURNE, Australia — The driver of an S.U.V. who plowed into a crowd on a busy Melbourne street on Thursday, injuring 19 people, was mentally ill, Australian officials said, describing the attack as a deliberate “act of evil” but not terrorism.

“This is a terrible, evil, cowardly act and one that will be condemned by all Victorians,” Daniel Andrews, the premier of Victoria State, said at a news conference, hours after the perpetrator drove a white Suzuki S.U.V. through a busy intersection in central Melbourne.

The Australian police could point to no motive for the attack, which paralyzed the city’s heart at the end of the workday, as it was teeming with people heading home or doing holiday shopping. Among the injured was a preschool-age child and an off-duty police officer who arrested the driver. Four of the 19 victims admitted to hospitals were in critical condition, the authorities said.

Shane Patton, Victoria’s acting police commissioner, described the driver as a 32-year-old Australian citizen of Afghan descent. He was known to the authorities and had a history of criminal assault and drug abuse, according to Mr. Patton, who said the man was being treated for a mental illness.

Consanguineous marriages in Afghanistan.

Abstract

The present cross-sectional study was done in order to illustrate the prevalence and types of consanguineous marriages among Afghanistan populations. Data on types of marriages were collected using a simple questionnaire. The total number of couples in the study was 7140 from the following provinces: Badakhshan, Baghlan, Balkh, Bamyan, Kabul, Kunduz, Samangan and Takhar. Consanguineous marriages were classified by the degree of relationship between couples: double first cousins, first cousins, first cousins once removed, second cousins and beyond second cousins. The coefficient of inbreeding (F) was calculated for each couple and the mean coefficient of inbreeding (α) estimated for each population. The proportion of consanguineous marriages in the country was 46.2%, ranging from 38.2% in Kabul province to 51.2% in Bamyan province. The equivalent mean inbreeding coefficient (α) was 0.0277, and ranged from 0.0221 to 0.0293 in these two regions. There were significant differences between provinces for frequencies of different types of marriages (p<0.001). First cousin marriages (27.8%) were the most common type of consanguineous marriages, followed by double first cousin (6.9%), second cousin (5.8%), beyond second cousin (3.9%) and first cousin once removed (1.8%). There were significant differences between ethnic groups for the types of marriages (χ2=177.6, df=25, p<0.001). Tajiks (Soni) and Turkmens (also Pashtuns) showed the lowest (α=0.0250) and highest (α=0.0297) mean inbreeding coefficients, respectively, among the ethnic groups in Afghanistan. The study shows that Afghanistan's populations, like other Islamic populations, have a high level of consanguinity.

Consanguineous marriages, pearls and perils: Geneva International Consanguinity Workshop Report

Abstract

Approximately 1.1 billion people currently live in countries where consanguineous marriages are customary, and among them one in every three marriages is between cousins. Opinions diverge between those warning of the possible health risks to offspring and others who highlight the social benefits of consanguineous marriages.
...

...
In fact, consanguinity seems to be increasing in some Arab countries including Qatar24 and Yemen,25 possibly because of a belief that the social benefits of consanguineous marriages can outweigh the genetic risks and also because of misconceptions surrounding the nature of genetic risks among some members of the general public.

IQ levels in Scandinavia are falling since the
1990s, people are becoming less intelligent

 By VOICE OF EUROPE -  28 December 2017

A survey of researcher James Flynn shows that the IQ of people in Denmark, Norway and Finland is clearly dropping.

Since the 1990’s, people in these countries lost on average 0.23 IQ points per year, according to the study. From Sweden there is no data, but Flynn believes that the same trend is visible there as well.

Researcher James Flynn, who’s called a “left-wing scientist” by Swedish media says:

“It is clear that all Scandinavian countries have a declining trend since 1995.”

Flynn believes that the IQ drop will soon be seen throughout the West. Even in countries such as Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands there are already signs that the intelligence ratio is stagnating.

He thinks that the decline is the result of the worsening and deterioration of schools in the Western world’s schools since the 1980s. Among other things, school work has become less demanding he says.

Quote
It’s remarkable that Flynn does not talk about the effect that mass migration has on average IQ numbers. Statistics show that Europe admitted for decades a millions of people from undeveloped countries, with a much lower average IQ.



This could also be an important factor for explaining an IQ drop in several European countries. For example, the drop in IQ points started in the 1990’s, a time when the accumulative effects of decades of mass immigration could become visible. More research and probably more honesty is needed.
