>muh IQ

is there any worse argument for intellect? most East-asian countries score way higher than Europe, and yet they were nigger-tier civilizations before europe introduced their superior ways of governing, their inventions and philosophy.
>>
>>3918648
But anon, China have always been superior in ways of governing and philosophy.
Read Le despotisme de la Chine by Francois de Quesnay.

Averages don't tell you anything about the actual distribution.

Imagine two groups of four people with the following IQs:

A = { 103, 103, 103, 103 }
B = { 70, 140, 100, 100 }

Group A has the higher average IQ of 103, while group B has an average IQ of 102.5. But which of the two groups has the greater chance to achieve a great scientific breakthrough?

You got a point but asians, on average, have more geniouses than europeans.

>asians, on average, have more geniouses than europeans.
I don't think that's the case. I think Europe has more retards but also more geniuses.
>>
>>3918648
Europeans were nigger tier before their contacts with Egyptians and Middle Easterners.
The Chinese developed their own writing system, Europeans stole their from Phoenicians.
>>
>>3918648
>China
>nigger tier
The civilization of China itself is practically a wonder of the world. It's like if Rome never fell. For most of its existence it had been the most economically powerful and technologically advanced state in the world. The 19th century really fucked them up, but that's one window in a continuous history that literally goes back to the bronze age. In the case of China, European interaction was a huge net negative.
>>
>>3919280
Except do know the distribution. In pretty much all cases, large scale IQ data fits a general bell curve. If 100 is your average, then about 16.5% of your population will be between 100-115 and 16.5% will be between 85-100.
>>
>>3919297
When did a european come in contact with niggers?
>>
>>3919309
>large scale IQ data fits a general bell curve
It does, but there is still some variation. e.g. among women you find significantly fewer retards and geniuses than among men.
>>
>>3919309
No, there's something called kurtosis that makes it vary from one race to others.
>>
>>3918648
>and yet they were nigger-tier civilizations

This couldn't be more wrong.
>>
>>3918648
Are you retarded?
European superiority was born of war and a constant threat to their civilization at the hands of expantionist assimilatory foreign powers.
Huns, muslims, Mongols all attempted absolute destruction of europe.
The border bations that heald them off were later drawn into wars against their stupid internal neighbors.
Attrition insured that only the most shrewd european leaders rose at the head of a hardened people who had only death to look forward to anyway.
The nations of europe coaleced around their monarchs because anything less would have meant the subjugation of all europeans and the eventual dilution of their peoples.
China and its counterparts despite facing the mongol threat they
Never actually were put in a position where their entire existence was about to wiped off the map.
Islam never penetrated as thoroghly into china as it did europe. They literally got too bogged down in indian blood-mud.
The turks at the time were a marginal threat on the fringes of the empire.
And so they fought each other in a series of half assed succession wars.
But nothing like europe...
By the time europe was launching its counter sttack against the world.
China and company were doing what they always did because they had no reason not too.
Only europe and the middle east were thinking on a global scale at the time

Europeans violating borders and selling drugs isn't Nigger tier?

>Europeans
I'm sorry, I mean't British. French/Spaniards/Dutch/Portuguese actually respected Chinese trading rules and only scrambled for concessions to counter Britshit moves in the region.

The pattern variance on a racial level is not not to a particularly significant degree. Maybe A few more retards and geniuses here or there, but to use that difference to justify the misnomer of Asians being primitive is ridiculous. Also I meant 34%, not 16.5%.

Alright, but your example of the two groups was still an exaggeration. If you were to pick five random people from China and five random people from Germany, the IQ distribution would be very similar. You'd only start to see reliable variance on a region or country wide scale. The general bell curve fit is still in effect even if there's slight differences. And the slightness of said differences means that they're less likely to be a factor in the historical narrative than others.
>>
>>3919362
Deny it all you want.
Differences are limited to. Language nd food delicacies.
You could take a summary of french history, english history, polish and german, replace the names with letters, and move the dates a year or two off, and not one of you morons will be able to tell the difference.
European development as we know it was near uniform in circumstance where the only differences were experienced on the membrane states like spain italy greece and eastern hungary onwards.

When Yuronigs started their colonization, it wasn't a "COUNTERATTACK TO DA WURLD HERPADERPA."

It was in literal competition with each other.

Jesus, the two world wars shit on your views of Europe.

It served to exemplify the point that scoring a few points higher on average has little meaning.

>what are institutions

Gee. It's almost like institutions matter. It's almost like the Korean peninsula, divided artificially after WWII with one side getting a market economy and the other one getting communism, indicates that perhaps institutions do matter.
>>

>When Yuronigs started their colonization
It was ultimately meant as a permanent solution to the foreign invasion problem.
The theory being to civilize the world so the hordse would never again march on "christendom"

>It was in literal competition with each other.
Yes obviously but it came with a general understanding of who's side everyone was really on.
In the end as much as spain hated the british, they both understood the trie enemy to be a possible reunification of islam or an invasion from the barbarians of the new lands.
>Jesus, the two world wars shit on your views of Europe.
First one revealed the jewish threat.
Second one proved it undeniable.

*Kills other Europeans in Colonial Wars across the globe.*
>In the end as much as spain hated the british, they both understood the trie enemy to be a possible reunification of islam or an invasion from the barbarians of the new lands.
Which is why the British propped up the Ottoman Empire, I guess.

fuck off to /pol/ or read history
>>
>>3919446
>The theory being to civilize the world so the hordse would never again march on "christendom"
pure retardation. The prime motivation for colonization has always been economic. "Civilizing" was a tertiary goal at best and an ad hoc justification for atrocities at worst. Hell, half the time western Europeans lumped Russians in with the rest of the "horde."

>In the end as much as spain hated the british, they both understood the trie enemy to be a possible reunification of islam or an invasion from the barbarians of the new lands
kek, do /pol/ tards just live in a perpetual state of fear so much that they have to impress said fear on their ancestors too? There are many instances of European countries allying and/or aiding Muslim polities in order to better fight one another all across the early modern era. Europeans generally hated/feared their European neighbors far more than foreigners from another continent.

Because they cheat

Only Japan's and South Korea's results are more or less reliable when it comes to IQ

No they werent no Eurasian group has produced a negro level civilization.

Slightly higher, but their distribution over the curve is different. Europeans are more scattered to extremes, Asians are more tightly clustered to average.
>>
>>3919468
>Kills other Europeans in Colonial Wars across the globe.
Later stages when the counter attack proves successful, and the world is generally pacified allows the europeans room for halfassed political wars like china.
>Which is why the British propped up the Ottoman Empire, I guess.
Nothing wrong with propping up a nonpowrr in order to vassalize its former subjects and use it as a check against tatar aggression.
In the later half of european expantion the foreign threat was subdued and the era of european hegemony was ushering in.

They don't. For PISA they crackdown on cheating and ironically America has cheated in the past among other Euro nations.

I'm not sure, probably the same reason they have such little variation in their appearance. Same hair, same hair colour, same eye colour. Like a soulless clone army.
