View Full Version : The Bell Curve

Any one else here had the chance to read the Bell Curve? Amazing to me that a study conducted by some of the most Liberal universities in the US concluded that the black is the lowest most unintelligent life on the planet, yet these " Ivy Leaguers" still stand firm that the black is equal?!

This book is the most perpetually "debunked" book ever written. I mean EVER.
You know how there is like a cottage industry in publishing for academics to try to make a quick 24.95 off their brilliant term papers on Shakespeare and Canterbury Tales?
The last 16 years they have been trying to take that book down, and smear it like it is all about race, but it isn't.
The points in that book stand today, with better research and evidence, from test and just experience, than they did when first published.
1 Standard Deviation is just accepted, for example, and nature not nurture dominates thoughts on intelligence.
