Who ever called eugenics unscientific? The objection to eugenics is just that it's tremendously unethical to prevent somebody from having a family.
>>
eugenics always falls apart when you seriously consider who gets to decide who reproduces. I have yet to find two people on this board who give the same criteria

Eugenics is unscientific. It works on the presumption that desirable traits can be passed off to future generations without the need for the close inbreeding that serves as the cornerstone for animal husbandry.
>>
>>13264439
The fact that we've been doing eugenics on animals for thousands of years does prove it and make it scientific. Where the fuck were you in 9th-grade bio you stupid forgetful fool
>>
>>13264138
>don't try it on humans it's totally unscientific and unwholesome

Just curious, but to breed something you have to have a goal, an ideal specimen.
So what color human are you breeding?
>>
>>13264454
As white as the blinding snow in February

>>13264453
Animal husbandry isn't eugenics. The theory of eugenics works on a model of constant outbreeding which is something animal husbandry specifically disallows. In order for eugenics to actually work as intended, there needs to be careful breeding among family members with occasional outbreeding to keep the breed from collapsing.
>>
>>13264476
The breed only collapses if there are bad genes. Eugenics, fucktard.
>>
>>13264494
The breed collapses when the coefficient of inbreeding exceeds 25% which can easily happen over a couple generations.
>>
>>13264469
why
>>
>>13264502
Because although the white race is already at the top, we could be whiter

>>13264354
It's a female early education teacher. Shouldn't be surprised they can't do math. Can still be pissed off though.
>>

why do you want to be whiter though, as opposed to olive colored? like, can you list reasons?

Women practice eugenics all the time
>>
>>13264167
Essentially this.
Most people don't realize how they'd been breed to be servant slave cattle.
I meant many Europeans lived thousands of year in serfdom or slavery, no wonder they're so fucking pozzed.
I personally refuse to consider anyone who is circumcised to be an intelligent being.

Joke's on you, I'm uncircumcised and I'm still a retard.

It is done on humans 100% of the time.

Even pug population alone is larger than wolf population, and number of all dogs totally destroys wolves. Dogs are clear evolutionary winners.

Eugenics was being pushed hard by Science Inc. in the early 20th century and was endorsed by Churchill and multiple American presidents, but after Hitler it became uncool. It's still ok to endorse it today though as long as you don't call it by its name and have politically correct goals.

Any knowledge derived via the scientific method.
>>
>>13265457
Eugenics isn't a knowledge. It's a process of improving humans gene pool via selections of desirable traits.
>>
>>13265461
A process is knowledge. Like a recipe, a procedure. I cant believe you are resorting to pilpul so soon, playing games with the dictionary instead of talking about ideas.
>>
>>13265463
I mean there's a difference between a recipe and a meal cooked with the recipe. The knowledge of eugenics is not the same as doing eugenics. But there is still knowledge involved, which is not scientific.
>>
>>13265463
Well the only necessary knowledge behind eugenics is selection of heritable afaik. Do you think that's not scientific?
>>
>>13264138
This image is soul crushing. A system designed to destroy any creative thought.
>>
>>13265473
It is not scientific what is meant by desirable trait. Sometimes it can be. Birth defects are not good. But you can't just say manlets or average people are defective or that blonde hair is superior like there's any science to that.
>>
>>13264224
Same, sending power now check your venmo
>>
>>13265479
Yeah what is considered "desirable" trait is subjective but that does not make eugenics unscientific.
>>
>>13265469
>The knowledge of eugenics is not the same as doing eugenics.
Sure, but it is part of doing eugenics.
>But there is still knowledge involved, which is not scientific.
It largely is.

The pressure should be broad and weak desu. Strict enforcement is what everyone whines and moans about. In fact, maybe a better approach would be to only encourage certain groups and not discourage anyone. If intelligent people were highly influenced for example but no pressure applied to normals I dont imagine the push back would be too strong.
>>
>>13265477
The worst part is that it is designed to encourage "thinking outside of the box" and questioning the premises. But it makes it so you can only think inside another box outside of the box.
>>
>>13265485
>everything i like is science
If all you want to say is that traits can be inherited that's science. Genetics. People knew about that millennia before the discovery of DNA, they just talked about blood. But the "only desirable ought to reproduce" is a political statement, not a scientific fact. What is desirable is not an universal truth and the idea that only them ought to reproduce is also not a scientific truth.
Just say it would be better for future generations and make a case. Just dont lazily throw around the word science for points like bugmen do.
>>
>>13265500
For instance you can say that if only tall men reproduce because then humanity as a whole gets taller. That would be a scientific statement. What isnt scientific is to say that would be "good".
>>

I agree with everything said here.

Eugenics is not as good as direct genetic engineering and modification. I don't think it would be possible to bring forth the Amazon female small male master race with just eugenic breeding practices, we need to modify the Y chromosome in a way that eugenics can not do.

>humans breed animals for their meat, milk and fur for thousands of years

>>
>>13265819
Domestic animal breeds are often prone to genetic problems. Look at dogs for example. Some breeds are now so inbred that their life expectancy is perhaps half of that of a healthy dog.

>>13265797
wrong with advanced enough genome analysis you can just pick the gametes that have the traits you want
>>
>>13265948
You can't do that to gametes because you have to extract the dna to analyze it, and so you destroy the cell.
It's only possible with embryos with cells to spare.

That's it. The child called the problem correctly but the teacher essentially said that a one pound of feathers weighs less than one pound of steel.
>>
>>13266699
damn, i didn't even read the kid's answer
kind of surprised the teacher would make such a mistake though, the "how is that possible?" in the question means that it is true, just that you're asked to explain it, not that it's some trick question where it's actually false and luis actually did eat more pizza than marty
>>
>>13266746
makes no sense, maybe it's fake
>>
>>13264138
Let x, y be positive real numbers that represent the volume of Marty's and Luis's pizza, respectively.
According to the problem statement,
4x/6 > 5y/6
x > 5/4 y
Hence, Marty's pizza is at least 25% greater in size than Luis's pizza.
