Thinking Mouse: “What about the exceptions?!?” is good for research, though. You want to know as much as possible.
Even in research, we don’t care much about that. I write for academic journals. In a lot of fields, we don’t care about exceptions. We just look for a statistical effect. Of course we have to discuss the exceptions statistically in our findings, but in a lot of fields, no one really cares about them.
The purpose of life is looking for patterns that help you to explain reality. The SJW What about the exceptions? nonsense is intended to completely stop humans for seeking or discussing any patterns in humans because all patterns in humans are necessarily generalizations, stereotypes, and various forms of bigotry, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia and all the rest of the folly .
On Quora, they often ask people with genius+ IQ’s (140+) how they think. Over and over you hear that they are always looking for patterns everywhere they go in life. If all patterns in human life are generalizations, stereotypes, and various forms of bigotry, and if What about the exceptions? nullifies all generalizations, we are talking about wiping out the very pillars of human thought.
All this dangerous silliness is coming out of postmodernism, a theory which denies even the possibility of truth or the ability of humans to discover it. That’s why in all Identity Politics like feminism, gay rights, trans rights, anti-racism, all the rest of the foolishness, you always get hand-waving away of the scientific facts they don’t like because the facts conflict with their precious theory.
All Identity Politics is based on the primacy of theory over fact, and as such, all IP is intellectually fraudulent. The fact that it is mandatory for all humans in the West to go along with a manifestly intellectually fraudulent and provably false set of theories on pain of job firing, career destruction, etc. is one of the most anti-scientific and anti-intellectual outrages of our modern era. I lay this whole travesty at the foot of the intellectual joke called the Cultural Left, a miasma of propaganda and lies masquerading as truth and science.
The SJW’s are an actual menace to human intelligence itself.

Ive said many times in the past that probabilities in the social sciences are valuable. But depending on what you want to know, there are logically consistent ways of wanting to know the exceptions of certain modells, its not unintelligent, just different. Even you seem to understand this: “Of course we have to discuss the exceptions statistically in our findings, but in a lot of fields, no one really cares about them.”
“What about the exceptions” is also good for hypothesis speculation.
There is no purpose in life, its just pragmatic for most people.
I dont really dissagre with most said on this post, but some people cant understand statistics and go crazy retard mode very fast, so i was just addressing the crazies.
There’s a nice article out there by a man named Scott Alexander.
Please take a read- http://slatestarcodex.com/2017/09/27/against-individual-iq-worries/
Also, why do you use the Feynman example as a minimum. He’s an ultra exception?
Also, remember Robert has stated white nationalism is identity politics – and rightly so!
Well, SJWs shouldn’t be so much into research, as I’ve stated before, but should focus on actual cases of harassment – say cross-burnings or something. But SJWs have incurred the wrath of straight white males because they want to eliminate all harmless fun from society.
Of course, extreme racism and sexism is wrong, maybe not homophobia, transphobia, Islamaphobia. Anyway, the keyword is “extreme”. So if the generalizations become so accepted by society that people become monsters – as say in the Jim Crow era – then things need to be rethought.
Note, I came back from South Korea – and over there, there isn’t any political correctness. People are mean, heartless, you name it – with no guilt or remorse. Hell no, it isn’t a better society. Imagine a place where if some parents find that a teacher has a fake leg (a hidden one) and then they remove all the kids from the school!
There isn’t “extreme’ racism. It is normal for species to align with their own kind. People weren’t “monsters” during the Jim Crow era, they knew much better what they were dealing with and chosen the right way. All those phobias are jew machinations to promote degeneracy in the society and disintegrate white cohesiveness.
I think what really happened then is blacks got smarter than they were as slaves – and smart people don’t like being treated as mentally challenged.
OK, the IQ of slaves was at the most 70 and probably an average of 50 or 60. (Something ignored by liberals.). But I don’t advocate bull-whipping retarded people!
Anyway, by the 50s, the intelligence of blacks obviously went up to where some whites couldn’t see the sense in denying them rights. Jews? I’m sure they capitalized on the idea out of revenge fantasy – but the it was a trend of the time. How can you deny someone as intelligent as you – not a blathering disabled case, equal access to public facilities.
OK, you see people of their own species hang together? Not really, when I was in South Korea, whites could eat everywhere Koreans did – because it was assumed we are intelligent enough to handle our selves civilly. If it was thought we were retarded, then we would have been invited or would have been segregated against.
Anyhow, I see the liberal hypocrisy in treating the mentally challenged as different and special – but saying slavery was a horrible evil, as though the people owned were not retarded.
Blacks scared by Klan ghosts? I’m sure that actually did frighten slaves with IQs of children. It wouldn’t frighten them now, obviously.
It would shock white supremacists, many with deep seated hatred against non-whites, that probably most southern whites did not hate blacks on an individual level. They simply didn’t trust them as a group and thought they needed to be controlled. But of course, as in India, the lower IQ was a big justification – but it began to fade as more blacks were simply becoming smarter.
