Intelligence caused by genes

An article at the Telegarph:

“We know that genetics plays a major role in intelligence but until now haven’t known which genes are relevant,” said Dr Michael Johnson, lead author of the study from the Department of Medicine at Imperial College.

“This research highlights some of genes involved in human intelligence, and how they interact with each other.

“What’s exciting about this is that the genes we have found are likely to share a common regulation, which means that potentially we can manipulate a whole set of genes whose activity is linked to human intelligence.

“Our research suggests that it might be possible to work with these genes to modify intelligence, but that is only a theoretical possibility at the moment – we have just taken a first step along that road.”

Wow, who could have predicted that? I thought that intelligence was caused by going to the right schools.

Oh my god, what happens if we find out that blacks do poorly in school because they have lower IQ genes?

  1. That will never be allowed to happen in the west. We will probably have to depend on research coming out of China such as what is being done at BGI.

  2. Lion does a victory lap. Well deserved.

    A lifetime of Vox, Salon and Huffington Post editorials just went down the drain. As did innumerable diversity class sneering speeches about social darwinism. I wonder how many college professors are revising their lectures this morning?

    It was only a couple of weeks ago that I read a Vox piece sneering at those so benighted as to believe that intelligence was anything but a social construct.

    • This study will have zero impact on the left-wing vermin in academia and the media. The Left will continue to believe in human evolution while denying that genes play any role whatsoever in human behavior, which is utterly absurd. Of course every time they go to a sperm bank they’re contradicting themselves, but it doesn’t seem to bother them.
