We are all protoplasm. The
difference between humans and flatworms is the size of our petri dishes.
But, enough of that.
a broadening of the use of the term "Franken" this prefix
was also applied by some people to the dog that attacked and killed
San Franciscan Diane Whipple a couple of years ago. You may recall the
story. Whipple was returning to her apartment when a dog, owned by a
couple who lived in her building, attacked and killed her. The story
had legs mainly because the owners of the dog got it from reported white
supremacists who had bred and trained it. However, no scientific insertion
of genes took place. From all reports, it seems that this dog was bred
the old fashioned low tech way, which is to say, uh, doggy style. Nevertheless,
some in the press tried to create a Nazi superman/superdog angle, where
it probably didn't exist, and this kept the story alive for a couple
of weeks even though dog breeding has been conducted for centuries by
people in all parts of society and of all political persuasions.
Of course, you may end up with just the opposite or
some other variation. There's an old joke, maybe true, maybe not, that
a famous and attractive, but not remarkably intelligent woman was once
reported to have said to Albert Einstein, "Albert we should have
children together. With my looks and your brains, we'll have great looking,
smart kids. Einstein is reported to have replied "What if it goes
the other way?"
on. News reports this week indicate that Morris Goodman, a genetic researcher
at the School of Medicine at Wayne State University in Michigan, believes
that chimpanzees should be added to the genus Homo which now only has
one member--humans. Goodman's idea is to have three species fill the
Homo genus. These would be Homo sapiens, Homo troglodytes (common chimps)
and Homo paniscus (bonobo chimps). The reason that this makes sense
is that chimps and humans share 99.4% of the same DNA. So, .6% of our
DNA has kept us from being short hairy critters with long arms and bad
manners. Don't let any race deniers tell you that we should emphasize
the things we all have in common and forgot about tiny differences.
There are no "tiny" genetic differences.
Today, "race" is taking a lot of hits from
blenders who continue with their race denying in order to break down
resistance to the blending away of distinct races. They figure you're
a racist if you believe your own eyes about differences in skin color,
hair type and texture, bone structure, and many other physical differences
as well as scientifically proven differences that require special equipment
to determine, or if you believe the statistics about different crime
rates, I.Q. scores, school performance, and other things that point
back to mental differences. Many of these deniers come to their ignorance
from a religious bias, and reason, consciously or subconsciously, that
the "real" person is the "soul" or "spirit
within the flesh," and this soul or spirit is raceless. Thus, race
isn't important. Thus, race doesn't exist. Others come to their bias
with various quasi-scientific rationales based on incomplete or false
information about genes. Still others come to their bias from a belief
that if you deny differences, the differences won't exist.
Nature has given all animals sense organs so that they
can survive to breed and replicate themselves and struggle to improve
and make their kind the dominant kind. Generally speaking, nature isn't
about cooperation and getting along. It is about constant change. All
living things are nothing more than the result of the natural evolution
of inert chemicals. Nature's endless experimenting with a chemistry
set. Some experiments work, some don't. Some experiments work for a
time, only to be discarded as some new model evolves. We can see, hear,
smell, touch, and taste things in our environment precisely so that
we can survive to breed true and pass on our genes. When we start to
override our senses and deny what these senses tell us about something
as basic to us as knowing who is US, and who is not US, we run into
trouble. And, humans are, indeed, running into trouble because they
are overriding their senses and can't seem to distinguish between what
is acceptable and desirable to override and what isn't.
you don't believe there are racial differences between the very different
peoples on this planet, you may be on your way to changing your family's
racial characteristics forever. You may wish to consider whether or
not your understanding of what this really means is scientifically correct
or whether you've just bought into the cartoon version of reality that
uses dogs and cats as metaphors for humans and where the mongrels are
seen as better than those that aren't mongrels.
