    Default Debunking the extremely racist book that is "Homo Erectus Walks Amongst Us"

    Link to the "book" :http://erectuswalksamongst.us/

    I first came across this "book" about 3/4 years ago but have recently re-visted it, due to people in certain websites and forums using it as "evidence". It tries to claim that Australoids, Papua New Guineans and especially Negroids aren't Homo Sapien but that they diverge from Homo Erectus and are now a currently a Homo Erectus like human. So basically a tweaked mutliregional theory.

    I mean I am not saying everything the author says is false as he talks correctly about different hair textures amongst races and other stuff, but he then goes on to say Nigerians have the most actual chimpanzee DNA without any evidence, right out of the blue. He then says that the genetic difference between Homo Sapiens and Homo Erectus is 0.170 and the genetic difference between Africans and Eurasians is somehow 0.23 which is very much crap. This is due to the fact that the genetic difference between Neanderthals and Sapiens is 0.3% and Neanderthals are a descendant of recent Homo heidelbergensis which is a descendant of Homo Erectus according to ,IMO the more sound OOA theory. I mean the maker of the book never studied genetics neither is he an anthropologist. I have just seen to many times were people mix actual facts with bullshit to trick people which this book a prime example of.

    I just want to know if anyone has read this before and their opinions on it. With all the people more knowledgeable in this field than I am I would love to see certain parts of this book debunked, as this book has ruined my day several times.

    Thank you.

    "Erectus Walks Amongst Us" is total pseudo-science. You don't even need to debunk it since the claims in the book/website were never verified or corroborated in the first place.

    I've checked out the site before and most of it is basically trying to make Europeans into Neanderthals and Africans into chimps, or something like that.

Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    I don't how I let the book get to me, I mean when you spend large quantities of time dealing with online racists and their views eventually what they say might get to you.

    Genes associated with Race Differences in Behavior:

    DRD4 7R - Associated with low attention and high risk behavior. Found at twice the rate in Africans as Caucasians and absent in East Asians.
    DAB1 - Cortex organization gene. Most positive allele universal in China, less common elsewhere.
    EST00083 - Associated with high IQ. Frequent in Europeans.
    ASPM - Associated with brain size, civilization and language. Eurasian allele rare in Africa.
    MCPH1 - Associated with brain size, civilization and language. Eurasian allele rare in Africa.
    Sickle cell anemia is is also almost exclusively in blacks.


    Also, one must include the allele for MAO-A promoters, a lower number of which promote aggressive and deviant behavior.

    Negroes have been found to possess the allele for only two promoters, highly violence-prone, at a rate roughly fifty times higher than Whites and East Asians. We usually possess at least three promoters.

    ^^ It's true that blacks have some archaic traits, like prognathism. But if you do an Fst comparison between chimps and Africans/Europeans, Africans won't be much closer to chimps than Europeans are.

    That's the point "Erectus Walks Among Us" isn't telling you.

    Chimps have no lips anyway, similar to many Europeans, whereas Africans have large lips (which is not a chimp trait). You can always find some archaic traits in all human races if you look carefully.
