    IQ and life outcomes

    I don't think bumping up IQ test scores has any intrinsic worth. However, increased scores might correlate with things that are valuable. Off the top of my head: - reducing malnutrition - access to education - healthy lifestyle - access to appropriate learning environments outside of...

    Cog Reviews Hobart

    Yeah they took down the vaginas. Made it a lot easier (though still tricky) to take a vacation care group there. It was pretty boring anyway tbh. Took up a lot of valuable room to make their point - got people talking though. Haven't seen the requiem for vermin or the confessional, that might...

    climate change "skepticism"

    Hmmm... Do you think the inclusion of more years would alter the main point though? What the window they present shows is that CO2 was not as good of a predictor of NH temperature as solar irradiance, until around 1840 where it increasingly improved in predictive validity, overtaking solar...

    climate change "skepticism"

    Thanks :) I guess I'm a little skeptical of reducing the evidence for climate change down to the methodology of one study from 20+ years ago. That article has been cited 1500+ times, and I doubt you're the first person to question their methods. Regarding 200 years: "A window width of 200 yr...

    climate change "skepticism"

    I'm finding it kinda hard posting here because it feels like everyone is responding to absent or unstated positions. I guess the general sentiment I want to express is that while fact is not dictated by scientific consensus (truth is not a democracy), opinions deviating from those of the...

    The value of IQ

    Hey Darque, I appreciate your approach. It's been a while since I trawled through the literature on this, and I cbf doing it again right now, but I'll give the general conclusions I arrived at (so just the conclusions/impressions, not the evidence or argument). I agree that in a sense...

    The value of IQ

    I've looked through IQ tests, but don't believe in functions really. Nevertheless, there is no social or emotional component. They're generally aimed at capturing the core processing speed, flexibility, reliability, max complexity of computation/operation, and pattern recognition. IQ tests...

    Excuses for bullying.

    I work with children and have to deal with this stuff on the daily. Typically when I take child aside, I will first ask them what happened and why they think it happened. Often they give a very one-sided version of events, especially if they're younger. At 16, your daughter probably has a good...

    Racism is innate

    Okay fair, but that's one person. Is their view even mainstream? You're talking about American sociologists as if it's a cabal. Is this one person representative of the entire field? Also, what that person said is only wrong if you assume they mean that biological mechanisms are irrelevant...

    Racism is innate

    The way you speak about a whole field as if it's a monolith is disturbing. You don't state or address anything that they say, you just invoke them as a boogeyman. This is exactly what you did earlier in the thread about biologists and their views on racism. I'm open to the shortcomings of...

    Quality complaint about moderator

    Listen to Polaris for some much-needed context and perspective people. The forum is better than it has been the entire time I've been here. The new members that are taking umbrage at the moderation are pretty good members, even if they're on the wrong side of this issue. I was in Pols...
