The Inductivist previewed a new paper from J. Phillipe Rushton, which contained this interesting claim I’ve chosen to excerpt: “Both within human populations (e.g., siblings), and between populations (e.g., races, nations, states), studies find that darker pigmented people average higher levels of aggression and sexual activity (and also lower IQ).” I had never heard the siblings claim before and that would indeed be a big deal. But both Razib Khan and Jason Malloy actually read the paper and found that nowhere inside does Rushton actually support that claim. Searching for mentions of “sibling”, I also found nothing.

For what this has to do with David P. Goldman (the artist formerly known as “Spengler”) see here.
