    That link wouldn't open for me but I found the book here:

    Here is a sort of eulogy for Rushton:

    Penis sizes are in reverse order.

    As far as "cultural achievements", I wonder how they measure that.

    The paper info:

    Psychology, Public Policy, and Law 2005, Vol. 11, No. 2, 235–294
    Copyright 2005 by the American Psychological Association
    1076-8971/05/$12.00
    DOI: 10.1037/1076-8971.11.2.235

    THIRTY YEARS OF RESEARCH ON RACE DIFFERENCES IN COGNITIVE ABILITY

    J. Philippe Rushton, Arthur R. Jensen
    The University of Western Ontario, University of California, Berkeley

    The culture-only (0% genetic–100% environmental) and the hereditarian (50% genetic–50% environmental) models of the causes of mean Black–White differences in cognitive ability are compared and contrasted across 10 categories of evidence: the worldwide distribution of test scores, g factor of mental ability, heritability, brain size and cognitive ability, transracial adoption, racial admixture, regression, related life-history traits, human origins research, and hypothesized environmental vari- ables. The new evidence reviewed here points to some genetic component in Black–White differences in mean IQ. The implication for public policy is that the discrimination model (i.e., Black–White differences in socially valued outcomes will be equal barring discrimination) must be tempered by a distributional model (i.e., Black–White outcomes reflect underlying group characteristics).

    Okay, I didn't read the link, so I thought "cultural achievements" meant impact on society.

    "--Black-white differences in academic achievement have also narrowed throughout the twentieth century. The best trend data come from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which has been testing seventeen-year-olds since 1971 and has repeated many of the same items year after year. Figure 1-2 shows that the black-white reading gap narrowed from 1.25 standard deviations in 1971 to 0.69 standard deviations in 1996. The math gap fell from 1.33 to 0.89 standard deviations. When Min-Hsiung Huang and Robert Hauser analyzed vocabulary scores for adults born between 1909 and 1969, the black-white gap also narrowed by half."

    Does Vivify believe that every participant in this survey was asked about one's 'penis size'?

    Looks like blacks are still a distant last. Once again the two top groups are white and Asian with Asians a point to a point and half better.

    Did you know that in terms of educational performance, bigots tend to be outperformed by non-bigots?

    And all this is important and useful science, because?..

    Not disputing that. The link from the NY Times shows that blacks have drastically improved during the 20th century, even halving the gap between blacks and whites in some categories. Given that blacks have overcome tremendous obstacles during that time such as systemic hate, violence and discrimination, the trend indicates that black test scores will continually improve as their conditions improve and oppressive factors against blacks (like racism) lessen.

    If this trend continues, black and white test scores will eventually be even.

    Because it makes him feel better as a racist white man.

    And what shapes those underlying group characteristics?

    This work can be put to the service of whichever presupposition we happen to have.

    It is important and useful because it can shape what when can expect to get with social programs. Perhaps blacks not achieving in the correct percentages has nothing to do with the education system.

    No, it is because it just goes to show that leftist theology is not based on science.
