“Scientists have been able to show that the short-term immune response to an immediate parasite attack typically is costly in energy. … Chickens reared in germ-free environments enjoy about a 25 percent gain in body weight compared to those raised in conventional environments.” (Robert Trivers, The Folly of Fools, 2011). I call the attention of Skræling Hippie to this finding. If true, then the well-named Skræling Hippie was reared amidst maximum germ load to become naturally strong and only got exhausted, couldn’t build flesh and bone.

U.S. is the major Western country with least media correspondents abroad. Adamantly isolationist in their heads and yet interventionist in fact! My source: “U.S. citizens are generally at a disadvantage in understanding foreign policy. Some is due to indifference because of its two protective oceans. Some arises from the extraordinary fact that the United States, the world’s only superpower, has fewer correspondents permanently stationed in foreign capitals than any other major Western nation. The result for U.S. media is a remarkably small pool of expertise on foreign culture and politics within their own organizations.” (Ben H. Bagdikian, The New Media Monopoly, 2004)
En su libro de 2006 ‘Historia general de al-Andalus’ niega [Emilio González Ferrín] la invasión islámica de 711 y la Reconquista. (Ibn Maher Kabak)
La imposibilidad material de la invasión tal como descrita en las crónicas árabes fue sacada por Ignacio Olagüe (La revolución islámica en Occidente, 1974) de los escritos del general Edouard Brémont, “el Lawrence francés”. Las crónicas árabes hablan de la conquista como de un milagro, y de veras, examinando a lo dicho, sí que lo fuese… En realidad, el islam unitario encontro terreno fértil en el arrianismo unitario mayoritario en España contra una minoría trinitaria opresora. En Córdoba capital del espíritu Roger Garaudy sigue a Olagüe: “En el siglo 8 lo que se introduce en Europa no son los árabes, sino el Islam.” (Sin embargo, Garaudy no sigue Olagüe a proposito de la origen preislámica de la mezquita de Córdoba.) Y, respecto a la llamada Reconquista, como lo escribe Olagüe ¿puede hablarse de reconquista cuando duró 800 años y la conquista árabe supuestamente sólo un par de años?…
Con los godos se introdujo el arrianismo, que más tarde fue perseguido por los propios reyes godos. Los “árabes” de la “invasión” fueron bereberes de la provincia goda de África del norte, la Tingitana: soldados norteafricanos mandados por godos en socorro del arrianismo español.

According to anthropologists Draper & Harpending, girls raised by single moms are promiscuous. (Source: “The anthropologists Patricia Draper and Henry Harpending found a strong correlation between a woman’s mating strategy and the degree to which she experienced paternal investment during childhood. On average, women raised in a home without the presence of an investing father pursue an ‘opportunistic’ reproductive strategy, which is characterized by early sexual activity, multiple partners, and early and frequent reproduction in the context of short-term relationships.” David Buller, Adapting Minds, 2005)
You now know where to find and get ’em, boys!
Draper & Harpending conclude that the absence of an investing father gives the girl clues of a polygamous world, rather than to give fun-seeking boys clues of fewer obstacles. And for sure – what obstacle is a Christian dad?

It is estimated that 27 million people around the world are enslaved today, 80 percent being sex workers (Bin Jelmood House, Mshreireb Museums, Doha). That makes 21.6M sex slaves in the world, typically women forced into prostitution by maffias. – And yet men are monogamous? Taking an average of 10 clients per day (which for these slaves – perhaps contrary to voluntary prostitutes – may even be low), that makes 216M men served each day. At this rate it takes current sex slaves about 17 days to serve the entire male population of the world (3.8 billion). Less than 2 weeks if you substract little boys from potential clients.
From another source, 40 to 42 million prostitutes would be at work. According to Global Perspectives on Prostitution, 43% of prostitutes receive more than 8 clients per day, 47% between 5 and 8, 10% between 1 and 4.
The average annual income of a US prostitute would be $290,000 ($24,165 per month) => to their pimps! This is 3.6 times the mean income of a US white household ($80,000), thus 7.2 times that of a white person. #jetset

Number of legal terminated pregnancies in U.S. in 1996: 1.36M. U.S. population in 1996: 270M. That’s about 1 abortion for every 100 women (all ages). I don’t know the U.S. age pyramid exactly but as a guesstimate that would make one abortion for every 65-70 fertile women. Each year.
Number of births in U.S. in 1996: 3.9M. 3.9/1.36 = 2.8 = birth-to-abortion ratio, that is, one abortion for every 2.8 births.
China’s Economy Will Overtake the US in 2018. (Forbes) / The EU economy is larger than that of the US. Does that make the EU the global leader – in anything? Aggregate statistics simply aggregate. (Salvatore Babones, author of American Tianxia: Chinese Money, American Power and the End of History, 2017)
EU isn’t as integrated, remains a fictitious entity.
I don’t know what statistics they’re using. In PPP terms it’s already larger. In F/X terms much smaller. But that doesn’t really mean much. (Babones)
It means America will have to teach her children that the first economy in the world (as to GDP ppp) is communist, atheistic, undemocratic China. lol
Total GDP really isn’t a meaningful statistic, but if you really think that China is the world’s leading economy, more power to you! (Babones)
It seems that GDP is meaningful when U.S. is the first world GDP and it isn’t meaningful when U.S. is first no more. Besides, it’s the trends. U.S. has just been taken over. Give it a little time.
Do you know these figures from U.S. on Asian vs White income ? U.S. Mean Household Income: Asian $90,752 / White $79,340. Chinese communities overseas are an asset for China, no doubt.

Also, China’s IQ is 105, US’s is 98, & China’s IQ is still crippled by poverty and, although it is improving fast, backward education (both exerting developmental strains on individuals).

Looting begins in Florida. Rest assured, any bookshops will be completely safe. (Paul Joseph Watson, of Prison Planet, legending a photo showing blacks looting a shoe store)
Well, this is looting but the goods are going to be damaged by water if no one removes them, and I’m sure the owners are insured for flood. Interestingly this looting is zero harm: insurances will pay for the damages made by the hurricane, looting or not. It’s called windfall. The goods are lost for everyone who doesn’t take them, and insurance will pay for flood damages, looting or not.
Windfall is routine business practice. Let me give you an example: You organize a show but it’s cancelled due to a hurricane. Customers are entitled to a refund, only a few ask: this is windfall. Many businesses will get windfall from Hurricane Irma: tickets preordered, money cashed in, shows cancelled, refund waived by many. Jackpot.
[As a user told me the “loopholes” I described were not the same as looting, I added the following] Many businesses cancel shows after a terror attack – for what reason? For people ask no refund because of commotion. I’m not talking of businesses impacted by an attack, but of venues sometimes dozens of kilometers away. Cancelling all their shows for a week or ten days! Yet the government said nothing, only to be careful… Jackpot! Multiball!

Primatologist Frans de Waal isn’t subtle: He imputes the state of Ceausescu’s orphanages, in Romania, to John B. Watson and American behaviorism. [The Age of Empathy, 2009, pp. 13-4]

In his books influential primatologist Frans de Waal spreads, in passing, the canard about lampshades made of Jews’ skin by German manufacturers. [He does in his above quoted book at least.]

How come today Darwinians say the strict exact opposite of Darwinians yesterday? Cf. William Chapple’s The Fertility of the Unfit, 1903. There’s a Darwinian contradiction in terms in such a book’s title, which a Darwinian couldn’t fail to see, and yet they endorsed the paradox. As if they saw something to which today’s Darwinians, back to basic primatology, are blind. On the other hand, if instead of relying on male dominance models we rely on homogamy models, the contradiction is solved.
[It turns out Frans de Waal, again, is largely responsible for that “back to basic primatology” movement I have been talking about. On this phrase, first, it is a way of speaking, of course: Primatology has made great progress since the days of eugenicism, but what is new also is the dubious application of primate alpha male dominance models to human societies, according to which high-status men are the equivalent of alpha gorillas in their gorilla harems. And here Frans de Waal is alleged to have played a major role: “Now, if the evidence for the claim that females prefer high-status males is as weak as I’ve made out, why is the claim so widely accepted? I think the reason is that we are captivated by a particular picture of the relation between sex and status among our primate relatives, and this picture affects our perception of human mating. It is widely accepted that among non-human primates high-status males have greater mating success than males lower in the status hierarchy. This belief is due partly to the popularity of the engaging work of the primatologist Frans de Waal, who has been one of the main purveyors of this idea.” (David Buller, Adapting Minds, 2005)

Científica mexicana Leticia Corral corrige a Stephen Hawking y recibe reconocimiento mundial. (Perfecto)
Sin embargo, igual que Hawking ella postula un universo finito (tiene forma de), lo que llama la pregunta absurda: ¿Qué hay más alla del universo? De lo que hablan no deberían llamarlo universo (“el todo”) sino una provincia. Tal vez una autonomía, a mí eso no me importa.
Hawking y otros se sirven de las matemáticas para hacer metafísica. Es original.
Para la lógica más allá del todo no hay nada, para la física hay “la” nada, es decir un espacio, con ciertas propiedades. Y el todo penetra la nada.
Como en realidad no puede pensarse ni un universo finito ni un universo infinito, en realidad el espacio no es una propiedad objetiva del universo.

No one can deny Osama Bin Laden‘s steadiness. As he frowned in life, in death he frowned. Proof in pictures. #FakeNews
Allow me a doubt on second thought: Is it true that this pic of dead Osama was broadcast by official channels?
I believe so. Below is a still from CNN news report. (Mara O.)
[Of course, the fact that this blatant forgery has been circulated on the Web has raised lofty comments about “conspiracy theories” being ablaze. One of those explains that “The White House has decided not to release any pictures of bin Laden.” That was the point of my question above. The fact that a TV channel with a reputation of seriousness has broadcast a forgery as genuine is a serious problem too which, as far as I know, has remained undiscussed by debunkers of conspiracy theories. So, on the website of that particular debunker I posted the following remark: “The doctored picture was broadcast by CNN News as a genuine photo of Bin Laden’s corpse, under the head ‘US Kills Osama in Pak.’ I’ve got a still. Please be aware, then, that not only ‘people’ are suckers, but also the mass media and their journos, on which the people rely for their information.” Now, if the still I am relying on here turns out to be a forgery too, please let me know.]

Monogamy might allow more men to marry – if there were no prostitution, a class of unmarried women largely unknown in polygamic countries. According to Schopenhauer, prostitution is the price societies pay for monogamy. This is to be added to ‘serial marriage,’ through which wealthy men get access, serially, to several young women. Both phenomena should be taken into account before attempting any praise of institutional monogamy.

The Truth About New Holland (A Dialogue)
Australia was discovered by the Dutchman Abel Tasman and it used to be called New Holland.
The first Dutch visit took place in 1606, to be compared with Cook’s travels more than 150 years later, in 1770. It is said that the Dutch made no claim whatever on the land (Wikipedia page on New Holland: “neither the Netherlands nor the Dutch East India Company claimed any territory in Australia as its own“). The activities of Dutch East India Company were marked by extreme secrecy and I’m sure historians have missed something about VOC (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) and Australia.
Dutch explored western parts of Oz extensively but didn’t stay. Read Batavia event, pretty horrific –Indonesians used to trade with aboriginals.
Aboriginal people have blonde in areas where Dutch explorers often came to grief on reef. They explored mostly northern parts in summer and to these it looked very arid coastline – then came collapse of Dutch economy tulips trade. (Australian writer Greg Hoey)
You don’t have to stay somewhere to proclaim it’s yours. See Danes and Greenland.
Indonesians used to trade with Aboriginals, and the Dutch, who traded with Indonesians since about 1600, would think Australia’s a dry rock?!
From 1606 to 1770 they had plenty of time to see the coast in every season, rainy or dry. And land is land.
Very isolated place to explore in such days, WA coastline riddled with dozens shipwrecks from 1500’s through to 1900’s. Abundance coastline of very treacherous reefs with no way home! So integrate become Aboriginal, even become Aboriginal meal: cannibalism existed. (Ibid.)
I’m not saying the Dutch had the means to sustain their claim against jingo piracy, only that they had a claim.
Nova Hollandia, even devoid of any Dutchman, was Dutch. Saying they made “no claim” on territory discovered by them is most absurd.
Dutch did lay claim actually, leaving their declaration on a plate now in WA museum [Western Australian Museum in Perth] on public. Was found 80 years ago however! (Ibid.)
By saying the plate was only found recently, you imply the Britons did not know they were committing robbery when claiming Australia theirs but I guess somewhere a protest exists, either from the Dutch government or the VOC. If the matter was settled by agreement, then I’m sure a document exists too that either Australia or the British crown can produce.
Anyway my claim is vindicated: there’s a Dutch plate in WA museum. The “no claim” story makes no sense at all.
Britons might have claimed a right through vacancy by the Dutch (like a house abandoned by its owner for years) but a formal protest would have voided it.
The trade lines you mentioned between Indonesians and Aboriginals might have been in the VOC’s hands, and a British occupation would cut these to the Dutch’s detriment, so the VOC must have protested formally.
At that point Greg tweeted the article ‘Australia might speak Dutch if not for strong emotions,’ The Conversation, November 21, 2013 here)
Good article, a little further from your notions about Dutch only being shipwrecked and/or eaten alive 🙂 Still just tiny bits, not the big picture.
Arid and barren as the land was, the Dutch were looking for gold mines, which are okay with barrenness.
For all we know, the Dutch may have been preparing a large mining expedition when the Britons claimed Australia theirs and insulted Netherlands. The latter’s descendants now say the Dutch were stupid idiots: “strong emotions,” “no claim” &c., such things that jingos are always eager to believe. They never see the absurd contradictions of their thinking, like that story of Dutch leaving because the land was barren, when they were searching for gold.
I have witnessed similar chauvinistic views many times by way of very superior Euro’s/ Brits/Americans toward Australia coming from lack of knowledge. (Ibid.)
I guess the more or less conscious reasoning is: We’re of the same culture, of which we’re the center and you’re the margin…
In their own eyes and justification, the right of European colonists on American ground is based upon written contracts signed by illiterates.

Winning’s got a price and when the price is a world empire it looks very much like losing. Britain lost a world empire in the war against Germany who had nothing to lose. An empire bled to death by a proletarian nation: bad management.
(My contender here, a British countryman who deleted his tweets a few hours later, said something like all empires peak and decline.)
The iron law is the excuse of bad managers.
(He then said it was difficult to administer a world empire from a ‘small island,’ and he added: ‘too bad you weren’t around.’)
At least I can try my piece of advice: Don’t let your small island shape small minds. Because you’re stuck to it now.

The ‘like’ function on social networks translates a basic pattern of human interactions. But it’s a schematic translation – a caricature. People are robotized when the scheme becomes the normal procedure in their psychology (robots are schemes/caricatures of humans). And this will be the case for social networks users, as the scheme (a ‘like’) is more rewarding than real routine interaction.
When robots’ likes is what makes us happy, we’ll be the robots’ slaves.
I can’t understand why Western right-wingers always take Israel as a model and never Saudi Arabia. Just look:
Al Jazeera’s clip ‘Thousands of Ethiopians are leaving Saudi Arabia. Here’s why’ (Aug 1, 2017) : ’70,000 Ethiopians have returned home after working illegally in Saudi Arabia. They were given until July 25 to leave or face arrest. They had no legal right in the country. … ‘They don’t even consider us as human beings.’…’
And yet Israel gets all the praise!

Moon Landing & Other Space Mysteries
Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Abd al-Aziz ibn Baz (in charge 1993-7) denied the Americans ever walked on the Moon.
“The original recordings of the first landing on the moon 40 years ago were erased and re-used. Yet the restored copies of the original broadcast are looking even better.” (from article ‘Nasa admits to losing moon landing tapes,’ The Vintage News, Dec 12, 2016 here.)
Shameful or… convenient? “NASA admitted in 2006 that no one could find the original video recordings of the July 20, 1969, landing” “they were part of a batch of 200,000 tapes that were degaussed –magnetically erased– and re-used to save money.” (from ‘Moon landing tapes got erased, NASA admits,’ Reuters, July 16, 2009 here.)
Such historical documents! This neglect, regarding unprecedented, historical, groundbreaking events, makes me suspicious. As if it had been the film of a local caucus!… And they had to retrieve copies ‘in the archives of CBS News’!
Hollow earth (concave earth) quote from August Strindberg: “Att jorden kunde vara konkav, visar sig vid luftsegling, då horisonter följer ballongen, han må stiga aldrig så högt; likaså med hafshorizonten, som alltid är i jämnhöjd med ögat, äfven om man stiger uppåt en höjd å stranden.” (En Blå Bok, 1907) Translation: “That the earth may be concave is shown by balloon flight, as the horizon always follows the balloon no matter how high it goes, and likewise with sea horizon, which remains at eyes’ level even if one steps up a mound on the beach.”
In Strindberg one can also read of contradictions in astronomy’s parallax, refraction/aberration, earth movement & speed… (Blue Books, 1-4)
Antigravity Dew: “Dewdrops mock gravity as they start sliding from grass top only as they warm, that is, when they become lighter” (Viktor Schauberger.

I’m interested in his community because I mirror the world. He’s interested in his community because he’s bound to it. See the difference?
Any jingo culture is really but a culture in the ethnographic sense.
We as a whole make our environment, so we make our genes. Light tree bark makes moth’s wings light-colored, dark bark makes them dark.
Any differences in rates of reproduction affect genetic makeup. Differences arise from natural (in my example: predators, which detect dark-colored moths on light-colored bark easily and vice-versa) or sexual selection. Assuming natural selection is largely through with humans (no predators, free from milieu’s pressure), sexual selection remains. I’m not sure in what direction sexual selection works today: the poor or the rich (early Darwinists of Galton’s school, i.e. eugenicists, thought the poor were outbreeding the rich, and to be more precise not as much the working poor as the unemployed poor, while today’s evolutionary psychologists think high-status men outbreed low-status men). But in any case social standards (environment) shape preferences/selection.
Natural selection today would be that if, for example, car accidents are more prevalent for some phenotypes the genes associated with these will decline, all other things being equal. Every factor impacting mortality and fertility differentially and non-randomly.

Blank Slate & Sex Therapy
We’re all s’posed to be afeard of spiders [my controversial presentation of evolutionary psychology] but most spiders aren’t venomous and those that are “are not ancestrally in Africa” (Robert C. Richardson).
So John Watson‘s conditioning was supposed to be ‘primed’ by evolved, adaptive fears… and was not, as far as spiders and even snakes are concerned. I see no reason why that would be different with Watson’s adorably cute rodents.
As to Stanley Rachman’s conditioning sexual arousal in front of boots, no one has dared say what primes that. The only sure thing is that the guy used human guinea pigs.
As far as arousal and erection are concerned, Rachman’s experiments prove that man is a blank slate. Anything will trigger it as engineered.
Behavorial sex therapies are the only working therapies.
51 million Americans including 14 million children have IQs under 85. It’s a problem. Don’t believe IQ deniers. (Prof. Richard Haier)
The real question is how many jobs need IQs higher than 85.
If average IQ was higher than average IQ requirements, ‘twould be a disaster.
In theory (according to IQ specialists) you’d rather have a Mensa cleanse your crap bowl (he’ll do it better), but he won’t be happy and he’ll let you know.
Besides, you’d cause your society to be suboptimal. [Keep thinking along these lines and I’m sure the IQ maniacs will cool down.]

The Birth of a Movement: How Birth of a Nation Ignited the Battle for Civil Rights, by Dick Lehr (United Black Books)
“The greatest of the Hollywood movie studios, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), was started by Jewish mogul Louis B. Mayer with the profits he earned from distributing the film.” (The Secret Relationship vol.2, p. 414)
[I also comment on The Secret Relationship vol. 1, 1st ed., 7th printing, pp. 203-4. Slavery among ancient Hebrews was not always as lenient as stated by the Jewish scholars quoted, for instance 1 Kings 4:6 “Adoniram son of Abda—in charge of forced labor” was Solomon’s overseer of the hosts of slaves who built the Temple of Jerusalem, quite Pharaoh-like. (One of the scholars quoted is a Dr Feingold claiming that Biblical slavery ‘’was of a precapitalist variety and had virtually no commerce connected with it. Unlike the situation in the plantation South, it did not shape the pastoral economy of ancient Israel which in any case found little use for masses of slaves.’’ So much for the little use.)
Intriguingly, on p. 220, one reads that white abolitionist senator Benjamin F. Wade called Jewish Confederate Judah Phillip Benjamin ‘’an Israelite with the principles of an Egyptian,’’ thus overlooking himself the Pharaoh-like slavery in vigor under Solomon for the latter’s monumental, pyramide-like projects. It is a little disappointing that people –Puritans– who seem to have read but one book do not even know it so well.]

Students are led to believe there are no jobs with a liberal arts education and that employment is the sole purpose of education. (Historian Andy Hernandez)
There are no jobs for liberal arts degrees as “culture is the occupation of the leisure class.” (Economist Tibor Scitovsky, in The Joyless Economy)
While I take your point, there are a growing number of employers wanting adaptability and critical thinking–hallmarks of the liberal arts.
Employers were already saying that in the 1950s: cf The Organization Man, by William H. Whyte.
Besides people take liberal arts degrees because they hate the idea of working for business.

If I’m a slave with no prospects of mating, shall I sacrifice my life for a chimp knowing he’ll reproduce and possesses 98.5% of my genes? [To Richard Dawkins]
The Red Queen
“There is nothing inevitable about human nature.” (The Red Queen, by Matt Ridley) A fact often stressed by evolutionists and never accounted for by them.
Is there anything inevitable about chimpanzee nature?
As, at the same time, evolutionists call such isolating of humans from other animals ‘’hubristic,’’ they deprecate themselves (as evolutionists).
Environment pressures allow win-win situations but the Red Queen [sexual selection seen as an ‘’arms race’’] discards them. Your optimism does not seem rational, in fact. [Matt Ridley calls himself a ‘’rational optimist,’’ which is the title of one of his books, The Rational Optimist.]
The figures that you showcase [in The Evolution of Everything], global wealth, life expectancy, etc, are fundamentally immaterial… because of the Red Queen.
It’s fascinating that my hair receding is a good argument against my facts. (Matt Ridley, in reply to being called a ‘’balding old Lord.’’)
You could also try to be above quoting the silly and to reply to reasoned objections.
[Earlier, in February, I had quoted Ridley’s book The Evolution of Everything (2015); the quotes are in order here now: “The police have come to resemble an occupying army who see the citizenry as the enemy.” (p. 241) Yet our times have their Robin Hoods: “One of the reasons of the recent decline of violence in the U.S. may be that gangs have managed to impose slightly more order on the drug trade.” (p.238) &
P. 199: Mendel’s laws “ought to have killed eugenics stone dead. Particulate inheritance and recessive genes made the idea of preventing the deterioration of the human race by selective breeding greatly more difficult and impractical.”
‘Tis strange, therefore, that selective breeding gives results with animals at all. Your views on eugenics are based on an ‘’exogenous’’ moral viewpoint, of which I suggest you try to account for ‘’endogenously’’ in a next book. In other, more direct words: try again.
To the first sentence Matt Ridley replied:
No. Domestic animals have shorter life cycles and start with smaller populations. I carefully did not say “impossible”.
Beyond the number of people sterilized, there exist no assessments of the eugenic policies that were conducted, of their effects on the populations. Taboo. You endorse the taboo with all your heart, like a salvation-army major parading as a scientist.
(He did not say ‘’impossible,’’ as he stresses it, yet it is the impossibility, not the difficulty of a thing that kills that thing ‘’stone dead.’’ Rereading the sentence, ‘’greatly more difficult’’ seems to hint at something stated before, and in the light of his reply it would make sense that it means that eugenics is greatly more difficult than animal breeding; thus Ridley would in fact have prevented my remark, had I read more carefully, but then I have perused the whole passage again and found no object of comparison whatever.)]

Rape in India
Explain to me why mass media only report rapes when they happen in India.
Interestingly in India there are 1.8 rapes per one lakh population. USA 23.3 per lakh. European countries on an average 24 per lakh.
Yes, that makes this media practice even more questionable.
Perhaps it means rape is so rare in India that India is the only country where rapes make news…
But these stats are from women who actually report rape, Asian countries are lower because the women are afraid to actually report it?
We could also imagine it’s because Asian women are consenting more… [Not to exclude first off, unless with good reasons.]
