    also, you are very "cause-istic". i am merely given examples, i'm not taking the whole.
    i am indeed worried about said links because i am a biologist, so this is my concern (and this is also my specialty, so if you want further comments or explanations on something biology-related, you can come to me )
    What an odd post

    Its your sentence structure and the words you're using, plus I'm pretty sure that there's divergence in what meanings we associate with particular words too and communication is difficult accordingly. Although you're also using a style of attribution of opinions and meanings to the other person you're in dialogue with, its not uncommon on this forum but its not a great way to discuss things.

    Hey, I just found this and I thought it was pretty cool and relevant. Interesting that Europe is characterized more by genetic drift. I think eurpean history is somewhat I fluenced by socio-religious balkanization and I wonder if that can account for it.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    The first and possibly the only great western thinker to take in interest in the Chinese was Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz.

    Okay, I think we should split this thread into two: genetic origin of the Chinese and American national debt - the derail is long enough to warrent that.

    Our Common Immunity

    Chinese origins are not different from the rest of the human race by the simple fact that colonialism did not take in China and was rejected.

    Colonialism did not take in China because the Chinese had immunity to common diseases like influenza, measels, the common cold, hooping cough, and other common diseases.

    By contrast Colonialism did take in those countries that had been cut off from the human race for as much as 40,000 years, and so had no immunity to common diseases and which proved lethal to 9 out of 10 of the population.

    Louis Pasteur demonstrated the germ theory of disease in 1864. So before 1864 no one, not the Chinese, not any colonised people, and not the colonisers, had any idea of germs and immunity.

    And where the colonised had immunity they threw off the colonisers, in Africa, in Asia, and interestingly, in Europe.

    And so it was shared immunity to germs that gives us a shared humanity.

    All this is set out in, "Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies", a 1997 book by Jared Diamond, professor of geography and physiology at the University of California.
