    Intelligence Gene Discovered

    I am grateful to my parents.

    Intelligence genes discovered by scientists

    Imperial College London has found that two networks of genes determine whether people are intelligent or not so bright.



    Genes which make people intelligent have been discovered and scientists believe they could be manipulated to boost brain power.

    Researchers have believed for some time that intellect is inherited with studies suggesting that up to 75 per cent of IQ is genetic, and the rest down to environmental factors such as schooling and friendship groups.

    But until now, nobody has been able to pin-point exactly which genes are responsible for better memory, attention, processing speed or reasoning skills.
    “Our research suggests that it might be possible to work with these genes to modify intelligence"

    Dr Michael Johnson, Imperial College London


    Now Imperial College London has found that two networks of genes determine whether people are intelligent or not-so-bright.


    They liken the gene network to a football team. When all the players are in the right positions, the brain appears to function optimally, leading to clarity of thought and what we think of as quickness or cleverness.

    However when the genes are mutated or in the wrong order, it can lead to dullness of thinking, or even serious cognitive impairments.

    Scientists believe that there must be a ‘master switch’ regulating the networks and if they could find it, they could ‘switch on’ intelligence for everyone.

    “We know that genetics plays a major role in intelligence but until now haven’t known which genes are relevant,” said Dr Michael Johnson, lead author of the study from the Department of Medicine at Imperial College.

    “This research highlights some of genes involved in human intelligence, and how they interact with each other.

    “What’s exciting about this is that the genes we have found are likely to share a common regulation, which means that potentially we can manipulate a whole set of genes whose activity is linked to human intelligence.

    “Our research suggests that it might be possible to work with these genes to modify intelligence, but that is only a theoretical possibility at the moment – we have just taken a first step along that road.”

    That explains a lot about milkman/Barbara/Black Heart.

    He's a mutant.

    Blackheart was the placebo in this study. The one with the itelligence gene missing enabling others to be measured

    The word you are looking for is "control".

    I think your genes are in disarray.

    Now comes the politically unacceptable part; taking and analyzing samples from each racial group and reporting what percentage of people within each race have the intelligence genes.
    The results are quite predictable, but I doubt if it will be done to confirm what we already know but pretend not to know.

    And that somehow adds gravitas does it?

    They are still desperately trying to compete with a barrage of online rivals.

    Very interesting if true.

    We have computers for calculations and number crunching but coming up with radical new hypotheses for how the universe works that push the boundaries of human knowledge is an act of creation that relies on the miracle of human intellectual abstraction.

    If we can find a way to turbo-charge this capability the rate of innovation could be increased. Abstractions like string and brane and M-theory could be crystallised and become tractable into a deep understanding of the nature of everything in a mathematically n-dimensional universe with a quantum theory covering gravity.

    This is an open forum and as you are not now, nor ever likely to be a moderator, you can get stuffed. Is that English enough for you?

    There are some retards of all races that believe that racial equality crap. After all there's no evidence whatsoever to suggest that Asians or Whites are more intelligent than Blacks, who have accomplished so much for the World besides throwing basketballs through hoops.

    There are retards that believe in all the racial superiority crap, too. You probably hold yourself up as an example, but it's only working in your own mind formulating your own self-serving assumptions.
    For example, the findings posted by Blackheart don't designate what "race" they studied to make the determination, yet you assume it is either white or asian without knowing any of the details. Post one up for bigots hooting bigotry.
    Finally, there is not such thing as "race". A long established fact, but it takes a sufficiently high IQ to understand the data.

    Did you know that racism is linked to a lack of intelligence?

    Ironic no?
