The article presents a compelling hypothesis involving Darwin's theory of Natural Selection, high IQ levels associated with European Jews, and genetic diseases found in European Jews.
Near the end of the article, an "easy" test is proposed.
Inbreeding. Not too many people converting to Judaism in old Europe, so the genetic pool was limited. Also, I would imagine the Jews had to live by their wits, being considered outsiders. Being intelligent would be a definite plus, marriage-wise.

("It does no good to be a super power if you have to worry what the neighbors think." BuffaloJack)
"Scientists are increasingly finding that propensities for human behaviors -- for addiction, aggression, risk-taking and more -- are written in our genes. But the idea that some groups of people are inherently smarter is troubling to many. Some scientists say it has such racist implications it's unworthy of consideration."
What I find troubling is that scientist allow their personal views to interfere with data. With all the the Globull Warming stuff, I wrote them off as liberals who would lie to get their own way (and I suppose "liberal" by itself would have worked). The idea seems pretty simple to me, and could very well have merit. Any scientist who would refuse to investigate something - anything - based on his feelings of the potential results should be ashamed of themselves.
The idea doesn't seem that crazy to me. Some people are really smart, some aren't. If you have groups where inteligence is valued and there is a high level of inter-breeding (relative to current standards), you would expect that group to become smarter over time.
theorists should stfu about Jewish genes & Darwin, in my humble opinion
Someone else was obsessed with Jews & Darwin
On the plus side though, they have a very low rate of cervical cancer, for... mechanical reasons.
The Jews send forth doctors and medical theorists who will likely find ways of preventing genetic damage to future generations in general.
Muslims however, mainly sit on their hands and complain about their self-imposed plight, and blow themselves up.
It seems a fair comparison.
