    You can't dismiss academia offhand. Talk show rhetoric shifts no weight in science.

    Assuming this isn't a typo, you have your terminology confused. At one point, you say they aren't the same species and, in another, you say they are just different subspecies. Different species...

    AIDS is spread heterosexually in places other than Africa. It might be more predominant in homosexual populations (I don't know what the exact statistics are on that), but it does exist in...

    There are no human subspecies. There might be races, but not subspecies. The statement that the subspecies are older than the species doesn't make sense, either. If humanity branched out before it...

    Gene pools exist, but not "clearly defined" ones. There's overlapping in most of the gene pools.

    Genetic differences between populations doesn't prove the existence of races. If you look at...

    What Race are the Ainu People of Japan?

    Out of idle curiosity, what race are the Ainu people of Japan? They seem to have characteristics that go across the board.

    I'll consider it, but I have a reading list a mile long. In addition to pleasure reading (I have overdue books in two libraries, books borrowed from friends, and more books than I have shelves), I'm...

    You're right, common ancestory doesn't necessitate unity, but 200,000 years isn't a very long time. The differences between what you might call "Caucasoid," "Negroid," and "Mongoloid," are...

    What do you mean "AIDS is from Negroes \ Homosexuals"? Did they invent it in a lab? Was it just encoded in their genes? I don't think AIDS sprang forth sui generis from the African or the...

    You forgot the phrase, "biologically speaking." Even assuming that what you say is true, sex habits, IQ scores, and crime rates are culturally influenced.

    If man separated into five distinct "sub-species"...

    If man separated into five distinct "sub-species" 500,000 years ago, then why does humanity apparently share a common ancestor ~200,000 years ago (ie, the mitochondrial eve)?
