Tony: How long until we start seeing things about religious people, or people of a certain demographic/ethnicity being genetically inferior again?

Oh wait, that's right. We are already seeing these things happen again. It always starts small.


David: I looked through your reference sites. I never could stand Stenger and his downright hostility. I don't understand your apparent approach to Muslims and first cousin marriages. There is a danger in recessive genes popping up with too much close breeding. Don't you want them discouraged? Rabbi Daniel Lapin in his book, America's Real War, 1999, warned sharply in just the way you are of the current attacks on religion, Judaism, yes, but especially Christianity.

It is not "my apparent approach". I don't have an approach to Muslims. Most of the ones I met are genuinely good people. As for their breeding habits, sure, I wouldn't encourage imbreeding, but I am not going to stereotype 23% of the earth's population based on the actions of a few. Just like I won't stereotype their religion based on the actions of a few extremist. My point was how easy and common it is becoming to use genetics to discriminate. All blacks are.... All Muslims are... All Christians are... All Jews are... its sickening, but it will only get worse.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
