Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

Hi Tom, You said,


Take another look at that cartoon I posted yesterday. ;)

I'd say war is a good tactic for spreading better warrior genes. What advantage does the wife of a successful...

Off topic diversion? Maybe not.

Something for all of us to consider: ;)

We shouldn't assume that the window we each look through is the only window in the universe or...

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

OK Tom, Let's see if I get it.

You are saying that either:

a) We make choices solely according to the operation of our CNS.

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

Tom, There are many reasons why you may not get a reply to a post. Notice that I got zero replies (so far) to my last two thread openers. I thought they were both pretty cool - especially that...

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

Tom, I enjoy these discussions as a way to consider various ideas and discuss the evidence pro and con - but when I do that I am not trying to say that other views are wrong. Some here are looking...

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

Fred sed,

No, I was responding to your question,


I knew at the time it was probably a mistake to do so. We both know this is just a transparent attempt to sidetrack a polite discussion of...

Who's got rhythm?

Fred sed,
I don't remember him saying anything about that. But, he and his wife who I became friends with were doing that. They were both working and saving for a down payment on a home.

Who's got rhythm and where did they get it?

Tom, I see your reasoning and preference for a genetic basis. It's a fascinating question. I came across this interesting article that appeared in the NYT in 2003 on this topic. Thought you might...

OK Tom, get ready for it - just kidding. ;)

What you are talking about is something that I have also spent a lot of time wondering about. I mentioned previously that I am a musician. I have...

Re: back to the future . .

I said in a previous post,
This opens up other questions:

What causes a child to adopt a particular identity-image (or parts of an identity image) and pursue it over the years? I was certain...

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

Tom, a very reasonable reply.

You said,
But then why have a forum like this on EP? Isn't that the point? IMO this discussion is another version of the nature-nurture dichotomy that has dogged...

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

Just in case there's someone out there who hasn't been totally turned off by reading the posts to this thread - let me recap.

The moderator started the thread with a paean to Francis Galton. I had...

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site

Fred, Thanks for the links. I'll admit that I have read several of his books and I never thought that he was more political than simply left-leaning and progressive in his politics. Being on the...

I didn't offer that as a regurgitation of what your ideological enemies have written. These are my own thoughts...

Re: Two Cousins: Francis Galton Site
