May I correct you? Horses (Equus caballus) and Donkeys (Equus asinus) are NOT of the same species. They may be of the same genus, but that is a horse of a different color (groan, apologies). It is somewhat surprising that this needs pointing out to you, and given the potentially charged nature of this thread, I wonder why you overlook the point.
Yes, very good, well done!
Classifications by genus, species, sub-species etc are based on outward appearances and physical characteristics.
You are talking about classifications.
Genetic is the study of genes and chromosomes and is not based on the physical attibutes of the subject, but it can explain the differences in outward appearances as well as the cause of many diseases e.g. gene mutation causes Alzsheimer.
I am talking about genetics.
Don't confuse the two.
So what is the name for a cross between "Equus caballus" and "Equus asinus" ? From the point of view of genetics, the issue is with the "scrambled" genetic code of the mule which renders it almost impossible to breed true. That is to say, a mule cannot breed with another mule. In evolutionary terms, this is a dead-end.
I wasn't even going to join this discussion till someone pointed out the error in the horse and donkey B.S. Try breeding an Arabian and a Belgian...no problem there.
Re-read my posting. Sei nicht so stur und rechthaberisch !
I will point out that Persia was a White area a couple centuries early. I wonder what the true ethnicity of Kharazmi was? Even today, over 1,000 years later there are some obvious White characteristic in the Iranian population.
Yes, even Hitler acknowledged that these were the original Aryans. Successive waves of migration (Voelkerwanderung) from the East to Europe created a rich, biological diversity. Don't tell the Australians, their government believe Persians and Chinese are racially one group of people, we are all "Asians" to them
Could there be genetic reason why the White countries are the richest? Could there be a reason why Whites made 99% of significant advances in science, technology, and mathematics? Could there be a genetic reason Whites are tolerant enough to let so many known White into their nations?
Since the cultural suicide of China after the Ming dynasty (thanks to the imperial court lackeys and a series of accidents), the baton passed onto Europe. Indeed the last millenium has been a "white millenium".
There is no genes that I'm aware of, or any other research institutions are aware of, that make "whites" more intelligent or compassionate. A lot of these laboratories have brilliant Asians working there - silent achievers.
Indeed, judeo-christianity is an aggressive religion with a patriachal religious stricture whereas buddhism is a pacifist, compassionate and forgiving religion.
Question is what will the next millenium bring? My money is on the rebirth of China.
In my opinion, intelligence is the lynchpin of the whole bloody paradigm, out-of-balance, tottering and ready to fall.
More to the point, when the contemporary paradigm of human nature does fall, China will be chief beneficiary of the change.
Bring on the paradigm shift !
QUESTION: How many people on this particular thread are actually Chinese?
