I wanted to start this blog for a long time ... It’s totally a different controversy y i didnt :) So here goes nothing ..
Recently I read this article in Times of India about James Watson, co-discoverer of the DNA double-helix.
His most recent comment that he is “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really”, There it goes the first topic for this blog : Is the Universe programmed to be equal
So what does this scientist has to say "Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so." So when we say that every1 will get equal opportunity, everyone has some skill less or more, ultimately we are all born equal etc etc ...give it a second thought.
Its more than agreed that females are physically less strong than male counterparts [feminists : no offence meantt ]. Can it be not true that some section of society cannot be more smart than other? Few people would never be able to do what others can?. We are not born equal?. In this case is it justified to have equal opportunities for all ? Off course there are exceptions...
The topic isn’t about men and women , scientists .. The idea is to find Is equality justified?
