1883 Francis Galton coins the term eugenics perceiving it as a
moral philosophy to improve humanity by
encouraging the ablest and healthiest people to have more children.
Galtonian ideal of eugenics is termed positive eugenics.
eugenics, on the other hand, advocated culling the least able from the breeding
population to preserve humanity's fitness.
The eugenics movements in
the US, Germany, and Scandinavia favor the negative approach.

1900 The model of August Weismann
is eagerly adopted by degeneracy theorists who embrace negative eugenics as
their favored model.
1904 Alfred Binet and Theodore Simon develop the first modern
intelligence test in IQ history.
The French Ministry of
Education asked the researchers to develop a test that would allow for
distinguishing mentally retarded children from
but non-compliant children.
1907 The first eugenic
sterilization law in the US enacted.
Adherents of the new field of
genetics were ambivalent about eugenics.
William Bateson in Great Britain, Thomas Hunt Morgan in the US
shun eugenics as a vulgar
unproductive field of research.
Unfortunately, Bateson's and Morgan's
contribution to basic genetics is quickly absorbed by eugenicists, who take an
interest in Mendelian analysis of pedigrees of humans, plants and animals.
Many eugenicists had
some type of agricultural background.
Charles Davenport and Harry
Laughlin introduced by a shared interest in chicken breeding ran the
Eugenics Record Office.
Both were active in Eugenics Section of
the American Breeder's Association (ABA).
Eugenics: The Science of Human Improvement through Better Breeding, had
a distinct agricultural flavor, and his affiliation with the ABA was included under
his name on the title page.
Agricultural genetics also
provided the favored model for negative eugenics: human populations, like
agricultural breeds and varieties, had to be culled of their least productive
members, with only the healthiest specimens used for breeding.
Evolutionary models of natural
selection and dysgenic (bad) hereditary practices in society also
contributed to eugenic theory.
was fear that highly intelligent people would have smaller families (about 2
children), while the allegedly degenerate elements of society were having
larger families of four to eight children.
Public welfare might
also play a role in allowing less fit people to survive and reproduce, further
upsetting the natural selection of fitter people.
Medicine also put its
stamp on eugenics.
Physicians like Anton Ochsner and Harry Sharp were
convinced that social failure was a medical problem.
criminologist and physician Cesare Lombroso popularized the image of an innate
criminal type that was thought to be a reversion or atavism of a bestial
ancestor of humanity.
When medical means failed to help the
psychotic, the retarded,
the pauper, and the vagrant, eugenicists shifted to preventive medicine.

Virchow's public health movement was
fused with eugenics to form the racial hygiene movement in Germany and
came to America through physicians he trained.

The IQ score was calculated by dividing the test taker's mental
age by his or her chronological age and then multiplying this number by 100.
For example, a child with a mental age of 12 and a chronological age of
10 would have an IQ of 120 (12/10 x 100).
Children who had exceeded the
average of their age group were said to have a higher "mental age" while those
who performed below that average were deemed to have a lower "mental

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
