A request regarding blogger comments
I'd like to allow people to comment freely on this site. However, I ask that comments use scientific language as much as possible. Please avoid using terms such as genetically pristine, pure and race. The common term is now genetically isolated. Also, words such as Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid are no longer in common usage. Please use European, Asian, Central Asian, East Asian, African, or even better, West African, Nilo-Saharan, San, etc., as the case may be. Perhaps it is my bias, but as far as I am concerned, there is only one human race. In fact, many mammals and birds display qualities of empathy, intuition, rationalism, and humanity and our concept of ourselves as uniquely possessing these qualities is increasingly in question. Thank you!
