Readers interested in the biology-anthropology discussion should read Jonathan Marks to learn about the common fallacies of Taxonomism, Racism, Hereditarianism and Essentialism.

His article http://personal.uncc.edu/jmarks/pubs/folkheredity.pdf on folk heredity is of relevance. I recommend his wonderful book "What it means to be 98% chimpanzee" (University of California Press, 2003).

Merry Christmas and all that.
