    We are talking here about population IQ, not about individuals.

    Go on then, what is population IQ and what is the point you're wanting to make?

    Why should I bother, you are so entrenched in idea that all populations on Earth have the same ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills, without influence of various cultures, educational opportunities or personality traits.

    If you want honesty a combination of trauma and malnutrition during childhood has a serious impact on mental development. Add in a lack of education both at school and from parenting and you wind up with noticable effects on a population as a whole.

    This can also be reflected in other measures such as height, ability to handle stress, and other factors.

    These are epigenetic effects and are reversable to a significant degree.

    Given how long Afghanistan has been torn apart by conflict it is no wonder that it has had a major impact on its population. Anyone born in Afghanistan since 1979 has known nothing but terror and war.

    Afghans raised outside of Afghanistan show none of these effects.

    Candy Crush is just asking questions.

    Population IQ... What does that even mean?


    Pretty sure Candy has never interacted with an individual with 70 Iq or less.

    He talks to himself on this forum quite a lot.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Of course it is true that there is a wide variance and i do not see anybody disputing that. Why they are calling you out is the simplicity of your yard stick and outcome. A base IQ test is terrible, a country wide IQ is a mere guess and only works when you can get a decent baseline via a good educational system but still a guess.
    Sure you can test for cognitive abilities etc but even in NL those take 3x 4 hours over 2 weeks (granted there is a spectrum test included). Good luck doing that in Ethiopia.


    There is a nature and a nurture part in people's ability to do anything.
    Schopenhauer:

    All truth passes through three stages.
    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    Journalist Craig Whitlock’s new book, “The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War,” will help ensure that no one forgets the harm America’s civilian and military leaders did, the lies they told, and the war they lost.

    Synthesizing more than 1,000 interviews and 10,000 pages of documents, Whitlock provides a stunning study of failure and mendacity, an irrefutable account of the U.S.’s ignoble defeat in the words of those who — from the battlefield to NATO headquarters in Kabul and from the Pentagon to the White House — got it so wrong for so long, papered their failures over with falsehoods, and sought to avoid even an ounce of accountability.

    https://theintercept.com/2021/08/17/...raig-whitlock/

    The documents are available here
