    Germanics Vs. Natives Intelligence

    Let us view intellect in the form of mental capacity for something as simple as art/culture.

    Native Americans

    1200s-1800s


    Germanics/Mediterraneans


    Compare?

    Injuns 1700 - still using stone tools, bow and arrow, spears, and has to drive large herds of animals over a cliff to get food, still wearing animal skins, lives from hand to mouth on a seasonal diet.

    Germanics 1700- has developed refined iron and steel, firearms, ships that sail around the world, written language, can grow and manage food supplies from year to year, cloth clothing.

    I have to play devil's advocate here. Metal working reached western Europe via the Middle East/eastern Mediterranean . There was no such contact with the Americas.


    As for art and culture, Franz Boas definitely promoted an agenda driven pseudoscience but that comparison is pretty shit too.


    Compare Babylon to contemporary NW Europe, or Egypt. It will look just as ridiculous.

    Lots of native Americans grew crops too. Just not the one who inhabited the plains.


    In the thread title you say Germanics and then you change to Germanic/Med in the post while showing some Italian art.

    This entire post is made of fail and bad history.

    Sorry

    This is an interesting clash of what the cultures were actually like- between Europe and the Americas- when they first met.

    A painting doesn't really show intelligence- though to some extent it does. What if that cave painting was done by a child. The characteristics of art stem from a combination of intelligence and learned cultural knowledge.

    Yeah Natives had lower intelligence (read 10,00 year explosion for the reasons why their intelligence didn't come about), but they also had much less cultural knowledge (no art schools for example).

    Well to say devil's advocate in relation to metal working actually could be quite true. As in certain myths people who worked in iron were sure to go to hell as they employed the devil's powers.

    Metal working did start in the Middle East, but it was us who made the best uses of it. There is enough proof of Metal working skills of Germanics that it should not even be debatable.

    Lots of native Americans grew crops too. Just not the one who inhabited the plains.
    Sure they grew crops, but they did not have a crop rotation program like those of Medieval Europeans. Nor did they utilize the soil to its best advantage. When the soil was depleted they moved the whole village. Not to mention outside of a few turkeys they had no skills in animal husbandry. Ever wonder why they had low population per area, when their resources were depleted in a area they had to move on or starve.

    If everyone in the world were to behave like a Native American there would be no environmental destruction or depletion, no major social dis-cohesion, and no self destruction.
    Remember now, it's because of these advances and the irresponsibility to use them wisely that the earth is in such peril.

    The "cards" were not in their favor if you like. North America was isolated from the rest of Humanity which played and shared with each other technological advances that certain cultures capitalized on and some discarded. Then when those who were technologically advanced arrived (Spaniards, Portugese, Dutch, and English) they destroyed and demonized the sustainable native folk and culture.
    This is based of the false idea of the noble red man. When fact they were not all that noble as I stated above. As far as them being subjugated it was bound to happen and is part of our history. The whole idea we should feel guilty for what happened to the red man is the same kind of placed on us for slavery.

    Native Intelligence?

    The first Europeans to land in N.A. died out or left. Some examples are Roanoke Island and the Vikings, their technological superiority not withstanding. There wasn't a successful European Colony until those "ignorant-stone age" people took them underwing and taught them how to survive on and in the Land. Although, they may be "ignorant-stone age" peoples, I doubt we Moderns for all our "intelligence" and "technical savvy" could survive on the land without our modern conviences and life support systems. As an example, does any one here know how to convert Acorns into edible flour. Is the Cattail edible? What is White Snake Root good for? How does one harvest Wild Rice? What are the best nutritional crops to produce and how? And the list goes on and on and on...

    Yep, them Native Peoples sure were ignorant.

    To all those things - yes I do and so does my woman.

    There are more people then you might think that are into woods lore.

    Despite that the first settlers at Roanoke were more of the gentile class searching for gold and less interested in settling the land.

    The vikings that came here were too few in number to even take into account other than discovery.

    If these settlers were so much less then the natives how did they take hold. Most historical accounts show that the colonist were most of the time fighting the natives. Not to mention the French and Spanish were also sending their native allies to fight the English and Dutch settlers.

    Europe was connected to other vast continents which made it easier to connect or trade vast amounts of ideas, advances, and knowledge versus the native americans that were on a isolated continent that wasn't discovered until the late fourteenth century.

    What does this prove?
    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.
