    Post The Genetics of Race

    Let me start this off with the following statements:
    I am not a genetisist.
    I am not a biology major.

    I have almost finished my Chemical Engineering Bachelors Degree.

    And lastly I apologize if this has been posted before.

    So i would like to know the specific genetic difference in percentages between the two top extremes of any one group, and any other group.

    That is between the extreme 1 Nordic and 4 Nordic... 1 Nordic and 10 Med. etc .

    I cannot find this data anywhere. Does anyone here have the data or know where to find it.

    What sort of data are you looking for?

    I have some rare books maybe I can help look it up.
    But are you talking about taking a slovenly average quantity cell examination of DNA and RNA and then estimate the convergence (for liberal humanism) or show the divergence (for uniqueness) within two so-called Central nordish races?

    The genes divergence from average Caucasian and Negroes are around 0,8% if im not remembering wrong. but it may not sound like alot but the average Caucasian is at the same time only around 2% divergent from the Pongids. so that should put things in perspective!

    Yep i seen that one before. either way we can fast assume that this % divergence will deviate all depending on the socalled average person they estimated upon and not to forget the sub racial differences all these nations they compare uphold within their own domain.

    Personally, i want to see increasing diversity and speciation occuring, which presupposes groups forming, and sub-groups of these. I am all for preserving sub-races, which, if preserved, will one day become full-fledged races, and from there, new species. I think if new forms of life came from our efforts, that would be beautiful, and something worth fighting for.

    Yep I total agree, a racial segmentation through the echoes of natural selection, through genedrift or Diaspora while disregarding all geneflow as detriment.

    that's another word for genedrift the opposite of geneflow, its like anagenesis versus cladogenesis or something like that, sorry I dont remember more I got this from a gene professor once.

    Thanks Hellstar, I suspected it was something like that, just wanted to check. Those two words you used confused me, I'll see if I can find them on an online dictionary.

    I am specifically looking for the % differences between Major and minor race categories. ( Cauc. Neg. Mong.) Nordic extremes, med. extremes, etc. amd between the sub-races.
