I am sorry if this is a question that has already been asked, and I just
missed it, but I want to ask Rushton and others who study similar things
WHY? What brought you to the point of studying racial differences? I am
not just interested in "oh, I found it interesting," but why you thought
it was a necessary field of study? What do you think that it will offer
to the world at large? Or is it knowledge for the sake of knowledge?
Sorry to sound so global, but this is some thing that I have been curious
about the whole time (and especially because I am studying this science
vs. humanism split--sorry for the splits S. Mizrach).
Please don't think that I am attacking you, forcing you to justify
yourself, I am just curious about the reasoning behind studying the
things that we study. (????makes sense I hope????)
