The Mendelian genetics and the verification of genetic information explain the evolution of intelligence. The existence of gifted children in intelligence
4. Genetics and intelligence
Until today, there are numerous statistical studies on the IQ heritability. The observed correlation in the IQ is low, except in identical twins, which is 80-85% among them; nevertheless, if they had considered the relationship with their parents, they would also have obtained a low correlation.
The problem is they do not define the composition of the variable to study correctly. If the studies were about the correlation of the color of the sisters' flowers or rats, as in the typical examples of Mendel's laws, they would have obtained low correlations!
There is not a simple linear relation; there are jumps in continuous variables with random processes governed by evolutionary genetics laws. Establishing the relations implied by the Conditional Evolution of Life, it is possible to obtain a high IQ correlation between the parents and their children. Therefore, it indirectly proves the coherence of the cited theory of evolution.
The influence of genetics on cognitive abilities has been and continues to be an intense topic of debate because of its possible social consequences.
The EDI Study shows both the hereditary nature of relational intelligence in general and intelligence in the strict sense –Conditional intelligence with high reliability; in other words, it proves a large part of the GTCEL itself.
Although Statistics is famous for its vulnerability to manipulation, it is also true that some people do not want to recognize the reality as evident as it may be. They are happier living in their imaginary world!
We will briefly look at a few points in favor and against a high correlation between genetics and intelligence, and at the difficulties or elements that allow for the coexistence of such different positions.
4.a) Genetic predisposition
4.a.1 Highly gifted children
The existence of gifted children indicates beyond reasonable doubt the genetic inheritance of intelligence.
Another significant argument supporting the genetic inheritance of human intelligence is that it has not been possible to isolate any specific environmental cause, which in itself affects intelligence. In addition, brothers and sisters with similar environments and different levels of intelligence exist.
Furthermore, the fact that children intellectually, physically, or artistically gifted exist supports the hereditary character of these abilities.
4.a.2 Cognitive processes and genetics
If we accept concepts of formal logic, intelligence, and intuition as variations of the cognitive processes due to the method VIG. Indirectly, we are accepting the genetic origin of the intelligence.
The method of Verification of Genetic Information occurs, in this case, just after the genetic transmission and even after the initial development of a new being. However, we want to conserve the adjective related to genetics in the name of this method to indicate that the genes determine the operative structure.
The book Conditional Evolution of Life includes a section on the theoretical framework of the EDI Study about the nature of intelligence and genetics with or without the application of the method of Verification of Genetic Information.
