For those defending Andrew. It is not the content of his posts that
evokes the angry response. Others have in the past (and will in the
future) express similar views without provoking a flame war. What makes
Andrew intolerable (and has for many years, sometimes even when I agreed
with him) is this pugnacious assumption that on any issue there is only
one minimally respectable view, Andrew's. Obviously on this issue no one
has _proved_ anything, for reasonable people (other than Andrew) are
disagreeing vigorously on it. The history of racism is not to be
encapsulated into a series of theorems in euclidiean geometry.
