Interesting to see some racism in opposite the usual direction. Vile and disgusting, but interesting nonetheless.
Also, factually wrong on many accounts.
1) Many other organs produce melatonin, including the skin, which is by far the largest organ and most likely produces the largest amount of melatonin.
2) Melatonin is not known to have any particular effect on normal emotional response. It can be useful for treating Seasonal Affective Disorder, but beyond that has no clear effect on emotion.
3) No scientific evidence has ever indicated that melatonin is related to morality.
4) Pretty much every pineal gland becomes more or less calcified over the course of the individual's lifetime.
5) The idea that blacks universally have low calcification is not accepted everywhere and not supported by all studies (one in particular is Mugondi and Poltera, 1976, which found a rate of 68% among a population of Ugandans).
6) The study cited above also found that calcification did not have an effect on function.
So, yeah, you're wrong on pretty much every level. Which, really, doesn't make you a whole lot better than the people who use lies to slander you.

Melatonin /= melanin

Wow, a black racist. Haven't seen those in awhile. Glad to see diversity knows no ideological beliefs, idiotic as they may be.

Melatonin is actually a sleep hormone.. hardly something 'stimulates' mentally. Melanin is just a pigment, although some fungi use it to feed on gamma rays.

Afrocentric word salad! It burrrrrns!

Often, during your extended bouts of philosophical and scientific rumination and prolonged periods of scholarly research, many ideas must be revealed to you that could potentially spawn great benefits for humanity. However, this probably isn't one of them.

Why did Africans view the European as a child of God, but the Europeans viewed the African as a soulless savage?
Because we had the fire sticks? Because we had shit that was way beyond a tribemans understanding, therefore we must be gods?
As for the rest, how is this any different from some white guy going on about bullshit proof of the inferiority of the black mans brain?

Ugh... Just shows that no human being is exempt from being a racist biggot, no matter the race.
Sad. Very sad. You make me sick.

Ok, white people fucked up, but please keep the blame with the white people who did something.
7/24/2009 1:34:00 PM
Way to be just like the people that once persecuted you. Does it make you proud?

"Why did Africans view the European as a child of God..."
Wait, what? If they had superior spiritual intelligence or some kind of morality detection system or whatever, would they really have made that mistake? (I don't believe anyone's a "child of God", but racist imperialists in particular must not be designated as such.)

"Scientific research reveals..." that you pulled that stream of consciousness warrrrgarble biobabble bullshit out of your rectum, didn't you?

Are you getting melanin and melatonin confused? Melanin is the skin pigmentation which absorbs light, protecting the skin from the sun.
Melatonin regulates sleep.
You are batshit insane. What gland regulates that?

If you're going to come up with bullshit pseudoscience like that, why not make it a religion and make a load of money? Worked for Scientology.

>>"Why did Africans view the European as a child of God, but the Europeans viewed the African as a soulless savage?"
Well, why did so many groups of people have legends that described their gods as being pale-colored? (The Aztecs thought the Spaniards were gods at first, I think.)
Anyway, it's not that white people don't produce melanin--they just don't produce a lot of it, since they ended up in a part of the world that didn't get a lot of sunlight. But white people do tan--how would you do that without melanin, hm?

I thought that MELANINE, not melatonin, was what makes your skin dark. Man, a little sciencce.
7/25/2009 10:11:43 AM
Nice word salad.
Too bad you're wrong, "races" are just a cosmetic feature, nobody is inferior or superior to anyone just because of that. We humans are all the same, no matter the color of our skin, eyes and hair.

Wait a minute, I have freckles. Does that mean I can partially feel and have semi-morals?

Either he's lying for Hitler, or he's so stupid he accidentally made whites seem better than blacks. I mean, come on, what do you think is better? Globe-spanning empires, or "spirituality". Hell, if you think a trait that supposedly caused you to think whites were gods is good, you should probably reconsider your values.
