By the same token, it's not racist to identify empirically verifiable
differences between races. Nevertheless, people call _The Bell Curve_ racist.
BTW, if testosterone can explain why 95% of those in prison are male, why
should it not also explain why 95% of those in Congress are male? For that
matter, why should it not explain the achievements of Socrates, Newton,
Einstein, Galileo, et al.?
Useless hypotheses, etc.:
consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, and ego.
Everything that can happen has already happened, not just once,
but an infinite number of times, and will continue to do so forever.
(Everything that can happen = more than anyone can imagine.)
We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
