What truth? More correlations? Still trying to tell us that correlation
equals cause? Same old broken record. Brain weight? Neantherthal brain
weight was 25% greater than that for Cro-Mangnon. Where is the data on
the genes, proteins, chemical pathways, etc., that constitute a causal
demonstration? A correlation is not a test of a hypothesis, no matter how
sophisticated the statistics are. It wasn't Hitler that was the point,
it was advertizing, which Rushton seems to do best. Give it a rest
