Clarified TFY.

The humbleness he displays is somewhat unique among committed materialists, and for good reason.  After admitting with such candor that neuroscience can not explain the conscious experience, it is astonishing that he has no problem stating

I don't understand your question.  You can't do brain surgery if you believe that some aspects of human intelligence are not necessarily physical phenomena?

He needs to be dealing with everything in its physical manifestation.

He wrote "As a neurosurgeon, I have to accept that everything I am thinking and feeling as I write this is a physical phenomenon."

Not "has a physical manifestation." Which is not at all controversial.  MRIs measure the physical manifestations of thoughts.

Something tells me that even if the IQ differences were hypothetically proven as undisputed fact Watson would face the same treatment for daring to espouse something politically incorrect. These same liberals who claim there are no differences will hypocriticaly avoid the ghetto neighborhoods late at night while claiming that anyone who stereotypes is racist.

#FakeNews on your #FakeNews. It doesn't say far right anywhere in the article. It says 'right-wing elite' and 'who’s-who of right wing celebrities'. I think Piers Morgan fits right into that category.

How far to the left do your goalposts need to start for Piers Morgan to be considered right-wing?

I guess we're talking semantics here, but he's a conservative - without a doubt. To me conservatives are right wing and progressives are left wing, simple as that. You want to call him a centrist or something, that's your prerogative, but the very concept barely exists in today's political environment.

What are you trying to prove? That he's to the left of Shapiro on one specific issue? That does not preclude him from being labeled right wing. If it had said conservative, would you have been okay with that?
