China isn’t just about mining everybody’s minerals anymore…they want the good stuff: They want human DNA. They are out to design the superior race, and they have already got a good start:

At BGI Shenzhen, scientists have collected DNA samples from 2,000 of the world’s smartest people and are sequencing their entire genomes in an attempt to identify the alleles which determine human intelligence. Embryo screening will allow parents to pick their brightest zygote and potentially bump up every generation’s intelligence by five to 15 IQ points

They seem mostly interested in people of Chinese and European descent. You have to provide some evidence that you’re as smart as you say you are. You have to send your complete CV, publications you’ve produced, standardized-test scores, where you went to college… stuff like that.

BGI Shenzhen

What would you do if some guy in China came up to you, and wanted some of your DNA because you are smart, and they want to use your DNA to make some really smart Chinese babies? Would you give it to them?

Of course you wouldn’t, because you happen to be smart. But Geoffrey Miller, an evolutionary psychologist and lecturer at NYU was just too excited that they thought he was smart..and did.

(By the way…When did evolution need a psychologist? Is the missing link now considered a mental disease?)

Here Geoffrey was asked how this would work: :

And over the course of several generations you’re able to exponentially multiply the population’s intelligence?

Right. Even if it only boosts the average kid by five IQ points, that’s a huge difference in terms of economic productivity, the competitiveness of the country, how many patents they get, how their businesses are run, and how innovative their economy is. And they’re sending hundreds of thousands of college students to America and Europe to see how our education systems operate so they can bring their own systems up to our standards and above.

I have a friend who is very worried about this. I should introduce him to Geoffrey.

First: Did China give the world electricity? How about the toaster? Or cars? Or frozen food? Or nuclear energy? I know that once upon a time, China was the best thing around…but how did they get where they are today? Is the reason that China has had to steal every invention from us is because its people are stupid?

Or is it because, communism doesn’t allow for much creative thinking? And can you CLONE creativity? Is that in DNA?

Chinese baby

China must think that we invented more stuff because we have more smart people, therefore, just take those genes and reproduce them. Steal our genes like they steal everything else.

And they wanted Geoffrey Miller’s highly intelligent brain, who also said this:

 Do you think global domination is in the cards, then?

The Chinese Communist party has never really sought global domination. They think of it as restoring China to its rightful and historical place as the central culture of humanity. Europe got a temporary advantage, but they’re just restoring the natural balance as the world’s most populous country. I don’t think they have any imperial ambitions to spread China’s borders—they’re not going to act like Nazi Germany or America in the 20th century—but they do want respect and they do want influence and they don’t trust America or Europe to run the world in the right way, in terms of issues like global warming or equality or economic stability.

“in terms of issues like global warming or equality”

Right. China doesn’t trust us because we’re polluters and racist…unlike their country.

Can I buy a vowel here?

If the Chinese think Geoffrey Miller is the brightest bulb on the porch, and they are going to be mixing his DNA in their general population….we have nothing to worry about.

    No surprise that some leftist lecturer at NYU would think this is a great idea. I seem to remeber another country trying to create a "superior race" back in the 1930's and 1940's. Now which country was that again, oh yeah Germany under the Nazi party.

    O/T..not sure if you all are following the former Army soldier who was fighting with Syrian Rebels (they may have been the rebels associated with AQ). He has been charged with conspiring to use WMD's which carries a life sentence.

    This is bigger than just this one soldier as what it is that was the WMD he was planning on using……an RPG. No kidding. If these morons in the administration go through with that charge they are opening all of our soldiers up to a whole heap of trouble as they will be setting a precedent that you know our enemies will use against us. I could see Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, etc using the "RPG is a WMD" to call for war crimes tribunals to be set up against the US as we used weapons with much more destructive capabilites than an RPG all over the place (to include our "lead from behind" air campaign in Libya).

    More here at BlackFive along with a very good question:

    DOJ prosecutes Army veteran that conspired with wrong rebel group to shoot 10 Syrian soldiers; refuses to prosecute Attorney General than ran guns to narco-terrorists used in 302+ murders http://www.blackfive.net/main/

  3. SignPainterGuy on April 1st, 2013 1:19 pm

    Shrillary`s fingerprints are all over the orders to run guns thru Libya to Syria. Many of the weapons in Syria came from the cache of weapons hurried out of Iraq before Gulf War II.

    We`re talking serious WMDs and they`re concerned over RPGs ?

    Freedom, culture and environment have as much to do with creativity and IQ as does DNA, if not much more.

    The USA has been free and a large part of freedom, in addition to the freedom to succeed, is the freedom to fail. Our history is full of success because people learned from failures. Sewshallism / calmunism fails to learn from failures and punishes it, thus instilling a fear of attempting anything new. Besides, "new" was seen in many countries as rejection of what has been, in effect, insulting their heritage. Creativity is stifled when a death sentence may be the reward.

    Government and politics in China is what needs to change, not their DNA !

    O/T…Dear Leader has told a great April Fool's joke!

    I am guessing it is someone over at DoJ trying to get cute on how to charge this guy. They feared charging him with providing support to a terrorist group as they themselves have been running weapons and supplies to the "rebels" in Syria. The sad thing is their attempt to try to cover dear leader's a$$ (and those of his administrations) are going to leave our troops open to all sorts of legal woes internationally.

  7. Truesoldier__ on April 1st, 2013 1:36 pm

    And as for those real WMD's. I am guessing that this is the real reason that deaer leader warned Assad about using WMD's in Syria. He fears that if those weapons are used they will be traced back to Iraq via their chemical signature.

  8. Truesoldier__ on April 1st, 2013 1:51 pm

    So true. Just look at what is happening here in the US. As more and more kids are growing up with a sense of entitlement we are seeing our productivity go down the tubes. You combine that with over regulation by the government and you see a stifling of the creativity.

    Hey M/W, Did you see that Buffett has decided to voluntarily pay the "Buffett rule tax"? It's more than that though:

    "In addition, all investors in Berkshire Hathaway will have 30 percent of their capital gains and dividends withheld by the company and sent directly to Washington."

    Makes me wonder how many investors approved of that and if they did not is it even legal.

  10. SignPainterGuy on April 1st, 2013 2:05 pm

    We can`t have any confirmation that Iraq did in fact have large caches of WMDs BEFORE we invaded in March, `02. Giving Bush any legitimacy would just never do !

  11. SignPainterGuy on April 1st, 2013 2:07 pm

    The list of those warranting charges of TREASON is long !

  12. SignPainterGuy on April 1st, 2013 2:14 pm

    And we on the right asked a collective, "What ?" Fascinating coming from the Tax and Spender in Chief who knows only to spend all he has and borrow more than he can pay back while saving nothing !

    I didn`t follow the link, but The Blaze has a story about a WH "prank" involving "fart noises" ……… I don`t know if they are smarter than a 5th Grader, but they show all signs of not being more mature than 5th graders !

    This is interesting. Of course again it takes private citizens to figure out what the lackluster GOP leadership cannot:

    A challenge filed by the Pacific Legal Foundation contends that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional because the bill originated in the Senate, not the House. Under the Origination Clause of the Constitution, all bills raising revenue must begin in the House.

    The Supreme Court upheld most provisions of the act in June, but Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. took pains in the majority opinion to define Obamacare as a federal tax, not a mandate. That was when the Sacramento, Calif.-based foundation’s attorneys had their “aha” moment.

    Yesterday, we enjoyed a comparison of Google and Bing and how each did or did not observe Easter. It continues today: http://www.bing.com/?scope=web&mkt=en-US

    Nice. Just one more reason to love Bing.

    I'm not familiar with Geoffrey Miller his work and interest in IQ – but evolutionary psychology tends to be about helping patients with not only traditional medical drugs, but also with using diet as a helpful tool for addressing patients issues.

    One of the more popular evolutionary psychologist's around is Emily Deans. She writes about her work at:

    Yield unto Caeser..?

    Perhaps it is only right and just. After all, this admin. has bent over backwards to benefit crony-donors. Truthfully, I'd be on the PHONE to a securities litigation legal counsel before Doug's nutty uncle could finish the sentence.

    Pretty sure as you go thru that prospectus the board approves every year there's language prohibiting exactly that. Why would anyone be a shareholder without voting rights that determine distribution of dividends? If nothing else this violates STATE securities laws known broadly as The Prudent Man Rule.

    Since BH is functioning as "an advisor" making investment decisions on BEHALF of shareholders/investors I'm pretty sure they just circumvented about half a dozen serious infractions right there! Without giving SH's proper notification so they can LIQUIDATE shares and BAIL before you commit financial suicide you are "holding them captive". They're breaking their fiduciary honor to act in their SH's best interests.

  18. Marshall_Will on April 1st, 2013 4:39 pm

    Curious THAT. They took pains to portray/peddle/SELL ACA is "revenue neutral" while applying the KY in their 11th hour 'reconciliation'. Let's make this STICK.

    On a related note, I've grown concerned Mrs. W's prescription is inadequate to weather the next healthcare/pharma SHOCKWAVE due in 3… 2… Having her thyroid removed years ago she is totally reliant on Levoxyl to regulate her pituitary system. At present they only provide her a 30-day supply.

    Look, it's not like it's "going to get better?" it was freaking REMOVED. At the rate Team O'Drama puts medical suppliers out of biz, underground or offshore how 'creative' a thinker do you need to be to imagine an unresolvable KINK in the drug supply chain..? Countless providers already HAVE.

    Once they're told what to produce and how MUCH they're going to get PAID how many will just liquidate for what they can and bail entirely? Oh and her co-pay just had a 60% increase.., that she NOW has to pay every MONTH.

  19. Truesoldier__ on April 1st, 2013 4:53 pm

    That is what I was wondering. It sure will be interesting to see what comes of this, or was this is even happening (I smell a PR stunt).

  20. Truesoldier__ on April 1st, 2013 4:57 pm

    Yep and all of this is just the tip of the iceberg. With the ACA fully in place next year you can see pharmaceutical research quickly become a thing of the past. No one in their right mind will spend millins developing a drug that they will be forced to sell at a low price.

  21. Marshall_Will on April 1st, 2013 5:05 pm

    Right, everything that have 'now' will be the best we'll ever 'get'. We have seen the pinnacle of American medical innovation. From here on out ( and Prog's will love 'this' ) the only thing we have to look forward to is "The Race To The Bottom".

    Natch it will all fall on "greedy cr@pitalist drug companies" Obstructionist Republicans (TM) and Sandra Fluke's cootchie…

  22. Marshall_Will on April 1st, 2013 6:19 pm

    Wink-wink/nod-nod….

    ( We'll cover you on the BACK side 'ol buddy! ) Here's yet another dumb & dangerous intersection and blurring of lines between 'private' and public sector!

    But be careful not to make a PEEP about it and certainly not on Twitter! Lest you'd want The Dumbald make disparaging tweets about "your past" ? Fall in line or [attempt] to humiliate you publicly! Welcome to the New Amerika….

  23. Truesoldier__ on April 1st, 2013 6:34 pm

    You mean like settle the IRS debt with BH?

  24. Marshall_Will on April 1st, 2013 9:09 pm

    Perzactly! Warren's not going to do something for nothing but the problem is…; it's HIS freaking tax bill! Not the shareholders?

    People say we're paranoid about the actions and agenda from the Left but look how the only way we learn about things THESE days ( is ex post facto? )
