He says he has an explanation for a fact in social science, not that social scientists would agree with his conclusion (which of course they wouldn't).

Most of genetics is a scam.

To the extent that nationality is a proxy for the relatedness of a population, yes.

Zoom out far enough and it's obvious in the racial crime stats. But even within race, the origins of immigrant populations have explanatory power.
E.g. crime rates of Scotts Irish descendants versus those descendants of 19th century Germans. (The populations defined in the book Albion's Seed explain the geographic support of Trump than any other single variable, btw.)

Over the next 30 years, as researchers find the right level of zoom to cluster common SNPs, the prior 100 years of social science (which didn't bother to control for genetic confounds) is going to be overturned.

At least 125 dead and who knows how many injured. Bombing of Ramadan shoppers in Baghdad.

In a specifically Shi'i neighborhood. The death toll will surely reach 200 in the coming days.

A quick look at this book tells me it speaks of cultural characteristic in a sort of anthropological survey of american pop origins and their influence. Maybe that ought to give you a hint to stop with your crazy genetics bullshit?

The Albion's Seed/Trump connection is speculative fun. But the body of genetics research is overwhelming and robust.

If youre interested in parsimonious explanations in social science, you need genetics (as both explanatory and control variable.)
post #522 of 1314
Which gene, or clusters, is it that dictates this behavior? Surely this overwhelming and robust body of research must have identified interactions at the molecular level that lead to intricate networks of activities and eventually complex social traits. We're just a saliva swab away from the perfect immigration policy

Clearly it has nothing to do with genetics. Iq, how easy you are to manipulate and level of religiousnes are much more deciding factors.
