During a 'liberal' debate mocking Creationism...
I am by no means a ‘white supremacist’ SGEW. There has been 30,000 years of evolutionary energy that has gone into each and every one of us. We are simply optimized for the environment in which we evolved. If you deny this than you are the same as a Creationist.
Note that the ‘supreme’ NFL defensive linemen evolved in an environment in which bodily strength would have had the highest value in gene propagation.
Orientals have higher IQ scores than Europeans. Check out who is winning spelling bees these days. But Europeans have beer.
The seven dehydrogenase enzymes most surely evolved in man in the European-Western Asian environment. An effective food storage process for the winter was to convert the starches from grains into alcohol. This alcohol combated the bacteria that otherwise would spoil food, providing calories (sustaining energy) in the winter.
Thus beer was liquid bread in man’s struggle for survival, in some environments.
I have worked on Indian reservations and there is truth that there is a problem with alcoholism in these populations. This is likely rooted in lesser evolutionary development of the seven dehydrogenase enzymes during the formative years of man in North America.
“If the variants of these genes encode slower metabolizing forms of ADH2 and ADH3, there is increased risk of alcoholism.”

It is minus 8 degrees F at the present time. This is not an exaggeration. Note the improvised extension cord from the house to my well. Those are Christmas lights finalizing the connection between the electrical grid and a 75W light lit in the excavation for the well system’s tank, to prevent it from freezing and blowing out.
It has not been this cold in my memory. Currently, the house’s water system is frozen, and I am unshowered. I am trying to keep my water system from exploding.
Yesterday, my car died because of snow stuffing the engine compartment, blowing out the alternator’s drive belt.
