From this he inferred that educational interventions in communities whose members have lower measured intelligence quotient IQ could not succeed. The Bell Curve elicited a flood of strong criticisms of the data used, the statistical analyses, and the policy inferences . Much of the criticism of Jensen and Herrnstein and Murray centers on their interpretation of heritability of IQ. In , Richard Lewontin and I  stressed the failure of the heritability statistic to do what these authors claim; namely, to show that IQ is largely genetically determined and hence that traits related to IQ, such as educational or economic success, would be impervious to environmental intervention.
As pointed out by Nicholas Wade in the first half of A Troublesome Inheritance , we are now in a genomic age, where individual differences at the level of DNA can be detected. The early chapters present a hodgepodge of historical ideas about race, aggression, and genetics. Whereas inferences on the causes of human behavioral variation referred to above were based on correlations between relatives, on pages 97ï¿½99 Wade develops his arguments for the genetic basis of social behaviors in the second half of A Troubled Inheritance from results on worldwide variation in DNA polymorphisms, namely microsatellite polymorphisms The Rosenberg-Feldman studies  ,  and single nucleotide polymorphisms another Stanford study  , from the Human Genome Diversity Panel .
Here, as in his previous journalism about these studies, Wade exhibits a complete lack of understanding of their implications. Using data from 15 protein genes, R. From the data and analyses of worldwide molecular genomic variation, Richard Lewontin and I amplified the conclusions of Lewontin and Barbujani et al. Thus, racial assignment loses any general biological interest.
The increased resolution on patterns of human variation that we now have has enabled us to understand a great deal about human migration, admixture, population size, and natural selection. However, it has not told us that the earlier studies underestimated the biological reality of race.
In the second half of the book, he claims that differences among continents in economic development, social institutions, and social behaviors are based in genetics. This classic correlationï¿½causation error cannot be excused on the grounds that Wade is just speculating; continents can be distinguished genetically; they also have different economic and social histories. One cannot conclude, as Wade does, that the former causes the latter. But these institutions, though heavily imbued with cultural traditions, rest on a bedrock of genetically shaped human behavior; and when a civilization produces a distinctive set of institutions that endures for many generations, that is the sign of a supporting suite of variations in the genes that influence human social behavior.
The first is by Gregory Clark, an economic historian who studies changes in interpersonal violence, literacy, the propensity to save, and the propensity to work in the English population from CE to CE .
Its longevity and stability point strongly to a genetic basis. Wade devotes almost four pages of chapter seven, the longest chapter in the book, to IQ. In placing so much emphasis on Lynn's work which was strongly supported by the notorious Pioneer Fund, which also supported William Shockley and was chaired by an even more notorious scholar, J.
Philippe Rushton , Wade has apparently chosen to ignore important studies on IQ and environment such as those by Brooksï¿½Gunn et al. In the same vein, Turkheimer et al. By omitting reference to such studies that find very strong environmental contributions to IQ, while focusing on Richard Lynn, the book takes a very hereditarian stance. This section of the book is redolent of the claims of Jensen, as well as Herrnstein and Murray, mentioned at the beginning of this review.
It also harks back to claims by Taubman  in the s, based on correlations between relatives, that variation between individuals in wealth has a strong genetic basis. It is most informative to compare Goldberger's  criticism of Taubman's analysis with related negative evaluations of studies on heritability of IQ. Wade goes even further than proposing a genetic basis for continental variation in wealth; he would have us believe that differences in economic and political institutions among populations have a genetic basis.
We can juxtapose Wade's conclusions on the genetic basis of racial differences in wealth, economies, and institutions with those of Ashraf and Galor on a similar topic. Wade's use of worldwide patterns of human molecular genetic variation to define races and his inference that genetic variation between races explains their economic differences are qualitatively similar to Ashraf and Galor's thesis.
Speculation aside, readers of A Troublesome Inheritance are advised to heed the admonition by Guedes et al. Wade's premise is that molecular population genetics has shown sufficient variation between continents to define races.
Ironically, the molecular genomic data that have become available in the last fifteen yearsï¿½the very data that Wade argues we need to bravely acknowledgeï¿½explain in terms of admixture, gene flow, demographic change, etc. Echoes of the hereditarian arguments about racial difference in IQ and the reductionist arguments of sociobiology and evolutionary psychology resound in A Troublesome Inheritance. I have no trouble with the existence of human genetic variation. It is Wade's dangerous interpretation, however speculative, of the meaning of human genetic variation that is indeed troublesome.

Wade juxtaposes an incomplete and inaccurate account of our research on human genetic differences with speculation that recent natural selection has led to worldwide differences in I. We reject Wade's implication that our findings substantiate his guesswork. They do not. We are in full agreement that there is no support from the field of population genetics for Wade's conjectures.
After publication, the letter was signed by four more faculty members. I am confident that most of the signatories have not read my book and are responding to a slanted summary devised by the organizers. Evolutionary geneticist Mark Jobling, one of the signatories to the letter, wrote an opinion piece in the peer-reviewed journal Investigative Genetics explaining that the unprecedented letter was necessary due to both the fallacious nature of Wade's argument and its political ramifications, stating that "Its enthusiastic proponents already include some high profile white supremacists and a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
Marks , Jennifer Raff , Charles C. Roseman and Laura R. Stein, which were published together in the scientific journal Human Biology. Anthropologist Greg Laden writes that anthropologists were mostly critical of the book, while psychologists and economists generally received it more warmly. Its arguments are only mildly amended versions of arguments discarded decades ago by those who methodically and systematically study human behavioral variation across cultures.
Evolutionary biologist H. It is not, however, without error. He exaggerates, for example, the percentage of the human genome that shows evidence of recent natural selection. Wade also thinks that "evolutionary differences between societies on the various continents may underlie major and otherwise imperfectly explained turning points in history such as the rise of the West and the decline of the Islamic world and China.
Political scientist Charles Murray wrote a positive review in The Wall Street Journal ,  calling the book "historic"  and stating that opposition to the book among academics would be motivated by " political correctness ". Block criticized parts of the book, but concluded Wade's "moral and intellectual courage cannot be denied.

Ultimately, Wade claims that modern anthropology ignores key scientific information for political reasons, yet his own arguments are only thinly supported by data, and much of the data he does reference isn't rigorous.
Only G-d can make that claim, and we see that it is just such self-evidence that brings judgement on the nations lost in idolatry cf Rom For human beings self-evident truth claims are necessarily wrapped in the culture, assumptions and language of the presenter, and need to be interpreted and discerned by the hearer.
That a powerful, wealthy and widely distributed culture presents a truth does not imply its validity. The early believers certainly did not feel this way about the Roman culture though its truths could be compelled on the point of death. Scriptural witnesses such as Joseph, Daniel and Moses bear witness to unconvinced by the truths of dominant culture merely because it is dominant. Self-evidence becomes loaded with the supporting apparatus of the culture, and as in current times believers then become worried with the erosion of that tacit acknowledgement, little knowing that it will purify the message.
Additionally, the belief in the faithfulness of G-d to his covenant with Israel animates this resistance, even as the verbiage is recast in support of what seems a competing belief system. The proposition that G-d would cease to be faithful to His word occasions the obvious conclusion that this is not the same G-d, or more charitably believers are confused by their own texts. Again, looking at Deut should be clear, if the message of Messiah and His salvific work is so foreign to the text without the use of such mental practices, then it becomes suspect.
Assuming the answer and finding the proofs is a form of thinking with a long but questionable provenance. Compound this with an almost total lack of knowledge about the Jewish context and the type of religion and such it is looks a whole lot like something for gentiles and not Jews, a common rejoinder from Jews. Assimilation is a strong producer of converts, but a draw only for those who are seeking to be other than they are called.
Then the saying will truly apply, "When a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into the pit" [cf. Luke ]. You cannot learn anything from them except how to misunderstand the divine commandments For example, he shifted the direction of prayers from Jerusalem to Mecca, made Friday his special day of prayer, and renounced the Jewish dietary laws except for the prohibition on eating pork. Jews have had a long and unfortunate history as a trope throughout many veins of Western thought in which Judaism stands in for any defeated and irrelevant position, sometimes even ones in mutual competition!
Ancient Egyptians spent a good deal of papyrus on the Hebrews; early and not so early Christians filled pages attempting to distinguish between the New Israel and the Old; Muhammad's followers were intensely worried about the Prophet's relation to Jews and "Sons of Israel"; medieval Europeans invoked Jews to explain topics as diverse as famine, plague, and the tax policies of their princes.
And in the vast archives of material that survive from early-modern and modern Europe and its cultural colonies, it is easy enough to demonstrate that words like "Jew," "Hebrew," "Semite," "Israelite," and "Israel" appear with a frequency stunningly disproportionate to the actual number of Jews living in those societies. For that reason, any critical theory should inquire into its habits of thought, the history of its ideas.
There is something encouraging in their imperfection as it bodes well for all who will heed his words today. Paul is often seens as some dusty individual who penned theological tomes on scrolls and forgot his clothing in diaspora cities 2 Tim , but perhaps that is more of a reflection of his readers than the passionate planter of congregations who sought their good with tears.
Whether it was living out Deuteronomy 13 himself prior to meeting Yeshua, or standing guard at the door of the minds of his congregations; passionate. In Ephesians he helps the congregations to understand some critical things about inheritance, unity and purpose. Why is this important? Because earlier in the same letter Paul had baselined the Gentile condition which looked 15 of all the members of a third Jewish tribe except for the women and children, who were sold into slavery.
This was the view advanced later by Augustine and others, laying the groundwork for dispensational thought. How far from the great mystery Paul celebrates of the One New Man. When you read this, you can understand my insight into the mystery of Messiahï¿½ which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations, as it has now been revealed by the Ruach to His holy emissaries and prophets.
Is it not enough to be a co-heir? Sadly, Christian history, including its many of its luminaries, have thought not. In counterpoint we have the generosity Yeshua taught about in the parable often called The Prodigal Son 17 Luke In it the elder brother has always been with, and full partaker of all the goods of his father; the younger prodigal bailed, but upon his return had to be celebrated because he was dead think without G-d in the world but was now alive.
The rub comes when the inheritance of G-d is looked at like a pie. Pie is often made of sweet and tempting things, and as a desert is usually somewhat celebratory in character. It is also the final memory of a meal. A pie is also limited in size; the number of partakers and their share diminish what is left. With a pie this makes total sense. What a Jew sees in Replacement Theology, coupled with the almost ubiquitous tacit proclamation of the tenets of Replacement Theology through eisegesis, is pie-envy.
Paul in the Aereopagus is a favorite passage on this theme. However, Paul gently makes clear that the very categories of worship idols, resident gods, etcï¿½ are still beyond the pale, not to be baptized. If the total gains of the participants are added up and the total losses are subtracted, they will sum to zero. Unfortunately for all proof texts, context is critical and that reading is unsupported, IMO.
I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Before approaching either point it is good to get outside of the concept of G-d as popular culture dissect Him, a wealthy but stingy American; He is limitless, created everything from nothing, and a brief review of the universe or even just recent pictures of Pluto see below show that His amazing resources in the physical realm are boundless in comparison with any legitimate or even fanciful desire we might have.
He can never be exhausted or reduced to a pauper. Yeshua himself makes this the very essence of the relationship we have with Him and the Father in John There is no end to life with G-d, there is no pie plate to constrain what can be given. It is in fact this root that supportsï¿½ the Gentile church 18! Paul makes clear the gifts enumerated earlier and calling are irrevocable for Israel; it is a purpose that no one can void or appropriate.
Who can snatch from His hand? But is this fair? In the world of the pie, it seems like a piece has been reserved for someone who is not at the table. Here we find the nation travelling to their new home, ordained by G-d, and to be conquered upon his charge to the people. Did Israel complain about this state of affairs? Feel entitled to everything because of their chosen status? No, they were thankful for the provision of G-d, and trusted in His purposes for them. There is no need for the church to be Israel if that were possible not , instead it must consist of what the nations were meant to be in all those years of prodigality: shaped by the only G-d, the G-d of Israel, and bearing fruit He has intended for them.
Which brings the second and more difficult question: is there any spiritual significance to this? Is not the latter even greater than standing on the former, and a definite spiritual reality? The willingness to critique thought, to acknowledge the universal reality of tradition and cultural power, will go a long way toward making this both possible and fruitful. Where to begin? Such a choice will mean what has been set aside for Jews to bring will be left on the table, and the body will be impoverished.
That makes this more than an issue for cross-culturalism, token engagement or novelties in worship and practice. The message for all parties is, instead, we are insufficient to the task of G-d, and incomplete without both parts of the One New Man.
There is no imperative given in scripture for the ascendancy of the nations to replace or become the measure for Israel, for Jews. Before your eyes Yeshua the Messiah was clearly portrayed as crucified. I want to find out just one thing from you: did you receive the Ruach by deeds based on Torah, or by hearing based on trust? Her suffering, her stumbling, her hostility brings blessing, reconciliation and life from the dead. It is also worth noting that being the root for a bunch of grafted branches is far from an exalted position.
Many time the root stock is chosen to compensate for a deficiency or problem in the soil waterlogged, poor aeration, etcï¿½ but all the fruit is on the branches! It is often overlooked that the 1st century believers represented a much more diverse body than the current worshipping bodies by and large. A review of Romans 14 would show the challenges faced. That same diversity, specifically of Jew and Gentile together, is the intended remedy to the situation they face alone.
The groups people belong to because of their place or position in history and society. All people have a social location that is defined by their gender, race, social class, age, ability, religion, sexual orientation, and geographic location. To destroy Jewish identity in this situation, or relativize it, supposedly in service of truth is to uproot the seeds created before time, planted in Ur, and whose fruit is Messiah.
The anachronistic application of a seeming necessity based on current circumstances does nothing to remedy them, but only provide an excuse.
