Over the last few years several studies have measured reductions in fertility among males in western nations without drawing specific conclusions about potential causes.

Enter new study in JAMA… “According to a recent meta-analysis that included more than 185 studies, total sperm count has declined by 50% to 60% from 1973 to 2011 in Western countries, in line with a continued decline since the 1940s.”

'Lotta things wrong here. This argument about high genetic diversity between African versus non-African populations when applied to the race debate exploits public ignorance of what geneticists refer to as linkage disequilibrium (LD). The all too frequent example given that two Irishmen are more genetically distant from each other than an African man is rooted in specious comparison as the same can be said when comparing them to a chimpanzee. The larger sized African groups had hundred’s of thousands

1. These attacks on white history always start with an attempt at self-validation by reflecting on some recent horrible thing a white man did (in this case Charlottesville) before launching into witless diatribes about how white males see themselves… 2. as superior and won’t stop until they enslave everyone. Such an introduction is necessary just in case your were of the opinion that noble attempts to mangle legitimate Viking history into something more reconcilable with contemporary woke narratives are somehow underserved.

@sairasameerarao 1) Racism affects me when entire college courses are devoted to legitimizing and encouraging racial hated and resentment toward people with my skin color.

2) Racism affects me when my people are denied jobs and college admissions on the basis of their skin color. @sairasameerarao 3) Racism affects me when my people are denied political lobbies and educational scholarships on the basis of their skin color.

4) Racism affects me when brown people claim they’re being “terrorized” when someone says “it’s OK to be white”.

1. If you’ve ever had the feeling that not everything is OK with consumer DNA testing...brace yourself White man’s a lot worse than you think. 2. Forensic technology can now track DNA samples to you in ways you can’t possibly control. About 6 years ago, law enforcement began actively borrowing techniques utilized by genetic genealogy to identify unknown samples recovered from crime scenes.

“Humans share the vast majority of 99.9% of our DNA in common..”

After the AAPA released this statement a lot people tweeted with questions and confusion over what this means and how it relates to the question of race.

Lemme try explain... In April, 2003 The Human Genome Project (HGP) declared that the 3 billion base pairs of genetic letters in human genome were 99.9% identical in every person on earth.

Dorothy Kim, a Korean English Professor at UC Berkeley has sought to lecture the white population of America in TIME Magazine about their racism and false inclinations concerning the “true” history of the “multiracial” Vikings.… Before you go thinking that Dr. Kim is nothing more than an anglophobic neo-Marxist shill tasked with launching a revisionist attack against white people and their European history, let’s review the phylogenetic composition of the Vikings.

1. Director Stephanie Welch raised a $75,000 budget through a Kickstarter campaign to fund this film as a civil rights project – not a scientific inquiry. Despite the criticisms to follow, I recommend A Dangerous Idea to all as a cautionary example.. 2. of how social propaganda is used to cloud public understanding of inconvenient scientific realities. Many of the interviewees like Robert Reisch and Van Jones are short on scientific authority but long on moral proclamations with much of their commentary rolled into the film’s

In 2000 the HGP quoted an audacious statistic about the level of DNA similarity between different humans that was quickly adopted by academics, pro-egalitarian activists, and race-deniers. These groups have loudly championed this statistic with patronizing adulation ever since. But is it true? The HGP’s findings were predicated on the assumption that all parts of human genome are identical except for SNPs (changes to single nucleotides that can regulate allelic expression in genes) which they calculated at a maximum variance of 0.1% between all humans.

1. Let me first say that I’m not a paleontologist or any kind of expert on Cheddar Man (CM). My interest thus far has been somewhat cursory. That said let’s start with the obvious. It isn’t possible to conduct a GWAS on a 9,000 year old skeleton. If they isolated markers from.. 2. MC1R and IRF4, than they were able to produce at least partial sequences of C-16 and C-4 using this magical mystery technique. For the sake of argument, lets assume they did. The mutation that created red hair manifests itself in about 8 different alleles in MC1R.
