    Post Genes are eternal

    The aim of this thread is not to convince that races are temporal and historical stages, subject to evolution either by mutation or adaptation. I am fairly convinced that

    (1) evolution is determined by one single process, that is "selection", whether it is natural, social or sexual selection.

    (2) and that the differences between major races are so ancient and so remote that the same natural social or sexual constraints will cause different results depending on which major races they are applied.


    - As regards the selection process Genetic has shown that genes are very rarely subject to mutation and that the prevalence of some genes within a population is almost always due to the elimination of the other competing genes, not to an adaptation resulting of a mutation of the existing genes. As an example, against the belief developed by Lamarck at the end of the XVIII th century, a blacksmith having become very muscular during his working life will not have his genes change and transmitted to his children so that they will be born muscular. If they are, it is only because the blacksmith has transmitted to his children a genetic potentiality of muscular development that he has himself inherited from his ancestors. In three words "Genes" (like gemes) are eternal.

    - Concerning the ancienty of the current great races differences, proof can be given by the existence of definite borders which prevent selective process to make one population move from one great race to another one without involving exterior inputs. As an example, blondism in the white race is incipient and may have been favoured by particular climatic factors, but such factors never worked in the same way on northern mongolids, Tasmanian australoids or capoid negritids who always remained dark haired.

    One of the last attempts of lamarkians in this respect has been to suggest that blondism may have appeared recently and is due to a non carnal diet by pregnant women that favour during the meiosis the genes of blondism to the expense of the other genes. It is possible that such observation is partly true, but it is only applicable within a characteristically white gene pool and may be responsible for certain ash blondism to turn into platin white blondism and reversely.

    Never it will induce black haired Amerindians turn to blond or even dark brown. The reason for this is that a cautious understanding of the phenomena demonstrates that it does not work as an adaptation of the mother's genes to the diet but still as a selection which, like any form of selection, operates within a particular gene pool. In this case it is an intra-utero selection, a fourth kind of selection, besides natural, social and sexual selection. If we take a very well known example, the primrose seed when planted in a cold climate becomes white, and will never change it's colour during it's life time, but when planted in a warmer climate, it will be red and will keep it's colour.

    This is a particular property of the gene pool (or carriotip) of the primrose to express its colour in different ways depending on the environment where it has first been planted, but this form of expression (phenotype) is particular to the primrose and cannot be found in other flowers of the same family such as the cyclamen which, like the Mongols or the Tasmanian, remain dark whatever the temperature. Coming back to the Caucasoid race, and especially to it's "nordish" components, one can say that certain features such as blondism are a particular and unprecedented expression of this gene stock and that it can be subject within certain limits to slight variations due to selection, and during the life of individuals, to a certain plasticity.


    Hence, the fact that genes are eternal and that their predominance is due to selective processes only, does not prevent a certain variability within the narrow limits that a carriotype allows a phenotype to express. Nor does it hinder, at the scale of a population, a certain variability of the mean of the different features observed, such as cranial and body proportions or pigmentation, it being known that such variability is very limited and subject to constant allez et retour. This variability continue to occur nowadays because, although natural forces are no more at work since the middle Pleistocene, social and sexual selection continue to modify the proportions of the different genes within a same gene pool.

    Having said this, I hope that advocating a certain limited variability within a certain gene pool will not be felt as an intrusion of outdated Lamarckian amateurs in the fields of genetic and of physical anthropology. Unfortunately, lamarkianism is a very widespread belief and one may accuse the word "evolution" to be responsible of the Lamarckian belief that acquired characters can be codified into genes and transmitted to the next generation.

    So far, no adaptation. That's good. I agree with the four other ones. However, Mutation is rather theoritic. Do you have any example of mutation in historical times ?
