(Ir)RationalWiki (IW) is a Wikipedia-style website, where anyone can edit or create an article on whatever they’d like. They are a left-leaning website, so they, of course, don’t like what they consider to be “right-wingers.” Many “HBDers” have IW articles on them, notable hbdchick, JayMan (though it seems like his article was deleted), Emil Kirkegaard, Anatoly Karlin, and even a new one on the philosopher of biology Nathan Cofnas (see his response here). When I discovered my own article on IW, I laughed, since it grouped me in with “Frogs and Swastikas, AltRight.” Well, I think that the “Pepe the frog” meme is idiotic and childish, and I’m not a Nazi (National Socialist).

In any case, I recently looked at the page and discovered that they finally edited it to reflect my new views. My views changed around April/May 2017 due to two books: DNA is not Destiny: The Remarkable, Completely Misunderstood Relationship Between You and Your Genes (Heine, 2017) and Genes, Brains, and Human Potential: The Science and Ideology of Intelligence (Richardson, 2017). I would say that before reading these two books that I was a “genetic determinist.” However, Richardson’s work lead me to the work of Denis Noble, Jablonka and Lamb, Susan Oyama, and David Moore and the philosophy of developmental systems theory (DST). My deterministic views (and outdated views on genes and the physiological system) were then cured.

In any case, here is what the new edit says about me now:

RaceRealist started out as a supporter of hereditarianism racist theories about IQ and a fanboy of Richard Lynn and Arthur Jensen, but later to his credit rejected these views. Instead however of giving up all his racialist beliefs, he still defends racialism,[1] albeit minus the IQ pseudoscience. The latter has led to him to be criticised as still being a racist but using a deceptive motte and bailey strategy of trying to present himself as a more moderate non-hereditarian “race realist” when he still retains the old racist IQ beliefs about inferior black people in private. Furthermore, despite claiming to have changed his views on the latter – all his old pro-hereditarianism posts on his blog are still up alongside background photos of white supremacists.[2][3]

The first sentence is true; I did start out as supporter of hereditarianism. When I discovered the work of people like Rushton, Lynn, Kanazawa, and Jensen I thought “Wow, this all makes so much sense and explains why our societies are stratified the way they are.” Though, as mentioned above, I did change my views.

Yes, I do “still defend racialism”, but a softer, non-hereditarian view of human races (Spencer, 2014, Hardimon 2017). These types of arguments about race are non-hereditarian, non-hierarchical. I do agree that “IQ science” is psuedoscience, but the claim that “I still retain [my] old racist IQ beliefs about inferior black people in private” are completely unfounded. How does whoever wrote this know what views I hold in private? Further, they claimed that I “rejected [those] views” in reference to hereditarianism (Jensenism) but then they say that “I still retain [my] old racist IQ beliefs about inferior black people in private”? How does that make any sense?

Further, I have explicitly stated that the terms “superior” and “inferior” are strictly anatomic terms and, outside of that context, make no sense. The head is superior to the feet; the feet is inferior to the head. It seems that the author of this did not read my article Blumenbachian Partitions and Minimalist Races where I explicitly state:

Biological racial realism (the fact that race exists as a biological reality) is true, however, just like with Hardimon’s minimalist races, they do not denote “superiority”, “inferiority” for one race over another. Most importantly, Blumenbachian populations do not denote those terms because the genetic evidence that is used to support the Blumenbachian partition use noncoding DNA. (It should also be noted that the terms “superior” and “inferior” are nonsensical, when used outside of their anatomic contexts. The head is the most superior part of the human body, the feet are the most inferior part of the human body. This is the only time these terms make sense, thus, using the terms outside of this context makes no sense.)

Yes I have changed my “views on the latter [hereditarianism]”, and no, I will not remove my “old pro-hereditarianism posts” on my blog. I leave them up to show the evolution of my views over time. My blog is almost four years old, and half of the time I was a staunch hereditarian/genetic determinist and the other half I discarded those views and embraced the philosophy of DST.

In any case, the race debate is a philosophical, not biological, one; genetic variation exists between human populations which no one denies. The question “What is race?” is strictly a philosophical question and so, after that question is answered, it follows that the argument about the existence of race is then philosophical. Holding views on racial realism (the claim that our racial categories pick out real kinds in nature; Smith, 2015; 43). Therefore, the views that I hold on race are not scientific, but philosophical.

Re my views on immigration: yes I did write that non-western people are abnormal to our societies (fun fact: I wrote that as a paper for an Abnormal Psychology course, and I got an A). I do still hold that immigration should be restricted/completely halted, though it should not be based on IQ testing, as I once argued in the past. I agree that these views that I once held are idiotic. Looking back at what I wrote and used to believe in the past, I believed a lot of bullshit and pseudoscience. I openly admit that my former prejudices drove my old beliefs. However, as noted earlier (and in the past), I rejected those kinds of genetic determinist “racist” views after discovering the philosophy of DST and reading Richardson and Heine.

A final note on my politics: I support closed borders, I support capitalism and I am a nationalist. I don’t care about what people do in private, just don’t bring it out on the streets. I would say that I am somewhat of a libertarian, and while I do hold some “AltRight” views, I would not self-identify as an alt-righter.

In sum, (Ir)RationalWiki is a joke of a website with how they attack individuals who do use their real names. I’m just some anon guy with a blog and Twitter account. They libel people with mined quotes and don’t reflect their views correctly. In any case, yes my views have changed, and no, it’s not some “cover” for my old views. I do not still hold those same beliefs “in private” (how would whoever wrote this know what views I hold in private? It’s idiotic). I’m not “AltRight”, nor have I ever been.

  2. Your article clearly needs updating. I created a large number of articles there on racialists/hereditarians, but there has been a problem with Mikemikev creating articles on racialists/hereditarians as a parody and that’s when articles have dubious content. Most recently, Mikemikev created the James Watson article (that I voted to delete): https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Draft:James_Watson while he was pretending to be an anti-racialist communist: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Glamour_Sickle

    Unfortunately, I often get blamed for Mikemikev’s stupid behaviour. The JayMan article was deleted because it was a parody (probably also written by Mike).

      I’m obviously not a terrorist, nor could you fin court defend that as opinion as it has no actual basis. The reason I’ve never sued you for defamation is because I believe in freedom of speech (unlike Kirkegaard). I don’t believe in suing people for writing mean words over the internet.

    • I was trying to find where you got the misinformation my lawyer said I own your RationalWiki sockpuppets, unless you made that up out of whole cloth (like you have with many other false and misleading claims about me). It might though be this:

      https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/RationalWiki:Articles_for_deletion/Emil_Kirkegaard

      A year ago out of good faith I submitted deletion requests for all the OpenPsych articles I made, including Kirkegaard’s. I partly did this thinking Kirkegaard would take down his various pages attacking and smearing me, so we just removed any mention of each other’s names on the internet which would calm things down; predictably he never did and since that date he’s created or instigated more – so it was a waste of time. All those RationalWiki articles are staying up and have since last year been heavily re-edited by different users anyway.

      I have no idea how from this you misunderstood this meant I owned your sockpuppets. As far as I’m aware, aside from heavily trolling the Davide Piffer article, especially its talk- you had no involvement with any of the OpenPsych pages I made: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Talk:Davide_Piffer#Request_to_delete_talk_page

      I’ve never claimed otherwise. Rather I claimed (with good reason and concrete evidence) you own a bunch of troll/parody socks, mostly with Antifa or communist in title. Those are listed on Abd Lomax’s blog — none have anything to do with OpenPsych. Those accounts all fit your MO, not mine.

      Regardless, notice the troll who shows up on the above deletion request page impersonating me/or at least trying to mislead people by using my surname, Smith, is none other than Abd Lomax:

      https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Some_random_Smith

      https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/User_talk:Some_random_Smith#Hey_FYI

      “Some random guy has accused you of being Abd ul-Rahman Lomax. It’s plausible… — Dysk (contribs) 20:09, 12 February 2019 (UTC)”

      David Gerard then blocked this sock as Lomax after it was obvious it was his based on his writing style in the replies.

  3. “In any case, yes my views have changed, and no, it’s not some “cover” for my old views. I do not still hold those same beliefs “in private” (how would whoever wrote this know what views I hold in private? It’s idiotic).”

    I totally get you argue you’re sincere, but people are sceptical because other hereditarians have adopted your more moderate form of race realism, while in private holding their extreme racialist/hereditarianism views. Take for example John Fuerst – https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/John_Fuerst#Motte_and_bailey_strategy

    I debated Fuerst back in 2015 on OpenPsych and he claimed he was defending a “thin racialism” (more or less equivalent to the minimalist race concept you support) opposed to hereditarianism. The problem with this is Fuerst is a huge liar. He always was a hereditarian (which I saw in his old blog posts and his colleagues at OpenPsych also knew he was a hereditarian), and his most recent publications are from a hereditarianism POV. So that’s why some editors of your article don’t take your word at face value. Also there’s the fact that your more moderate form of race realism is just regarded by RationalWiki as pseudoscience. Its like you’re basically equivalent to an old earth creationist, while the hereditarians are young earth creationists. So while the “minimalist race” concept is more reasonable than herediatariansm, it’s still false.
