Inbreeding within a family leads to a substantial increase in birth defects when procreating.
Granted. But would you grant that inbreeding is basically the cause of what we call races, and further that racism depends on this kind of inbreeding?
No such substantial increase occurs from same-race procreation.
Was there a study you know of comparing rates of birth defects between interracial and intra-racial births? Let's suppose hypothetically that todays most common intra-racial pregnancy is 5 times less likely to result in a birth defect than if first cousins mated. If a study showed that interracial pregnancies were 5 times less likely than intra-racial pregnancies to produce a baby with birth defects would this not justify outlawing them by the same rationale that we ban incest?
If you support laws prohibiting consensual procreation between certain adults due to having too close of a family relationship. This would be I think the most common position. I extend the logic of this position and assume it is scientifically well understood that myriad health problems arise with "inbreeding".. I was imagining hypothetically, laws against procreating within ones own race.. I thought it would be interesting to hear someone argue against implementing such a law, and for me to defend it. I find the subject difficult I could argue either position and feel comfortable with neither.
Love the way you quoted me out of context there conveniently removing where I said "if you can't tell he is talking about US wars....you are stupid"
You couldn't tell it was just an underhanded jab in response to yours?
So great you are rude AND dishonest
I have had good debates before with honest respectful people. But they have all left the site...likely due to dickheads like you.
