View Full Version : are peoples of an african descent genetically more rhythmic than other peoples?

ive tried googling about this but ive found no satisfactory answers.

first off i know that all peoples are not genetically similiar. this is because different peoples have evolved differently eg peoples living in high altitude generally have higher lung capacity than other peoples.

also i noticed that peoples of an african origin seem to be better with rhythm. jazz music is the most complex music in terms of rhythm and if you listen to african music its more rhythmic than majority of other types of music.

i know that this might not be because of genetics but because of culture or socio-economic factors.

but on the other hand the african people had very rhythmic music for so so long that it could have become partly genetic.

its been shown that animals such as geese are born with an instinctive fear of certain predators even though they were just born and couldnt have been taught about the predators.

all animals are born with certain innate mental qualities so why can rhythm not be one of them. i know humans are born with an innate fear of falling.

also if you think of natural selection. africans who had more rhythm would probably be more sexually attractive because rhythmic music was such a big part of african life. and therefore their offspring would have better rhythm and so on.

i know that hardly any research has been done on this and that theres hardly any evidence but i want 2 hear other people's ideas because i didn't find anything interesting from google.

i wont be learning biology in university but i might find out some other way.

there used to be a loophole which meant if northern irish people got an irish passport they could go to a scottish university for free. but they closed that loophole this year so youd be happy to know i wont be going to the same country as you for my university.

this is the worst thread on wu corp because u actually think cremos work is 100% authentic when most of it is pseudoscience and cremo has no understanding of the scientific method.

this post doesnt expose in any way that i was in denial. ive got no idea where ur getting that from.

i always believed different "races" had different genetic variations. i also thought this could be applied to their brain. ive also often thought that people of an african descent were more rhytmic. nothing i ever posted before contradicts this.

its also why i thought black kids in usa didnt do as well as whites in iq tests because iq tests cant really test for something such as aptitude for rhythm. and i believe rhythm is a mental faculty.

although i think my ideas on this were originally too simplistic and i think socio-economic factors might be far more important.

stop copying me!!!!!

if knowcheeze jumped off a bridge would you?

naw B...eye brought up in earlier threads how you was obsessed with race and not even in a good way and you pretty much riverdanced around that and basically quelled mah attempts to expose you as such...

but this thread...please don't ever complain about the 5 percent being racists or whatever...

anyways....don't get it twisted...om glad you here...message boards need people like u to survive!!!!!

PEACE

im not copying u. are u the type of person to jump off a bridge.tbh i wasnt that serious about this thread. it isnt even bad. are u scared people of african descent might be slightly more rhythmic because of natural selection.

QUICK!!!! lets get some less controversial beliefs such as white people are descendants of people in caves having sex with animals and that white people are a deformed version of black people from yakub experimenting on them. yes thats completely reasonable.

lets also twist the words of the bible and make up a story that jacobs descendants are blacks and esaus descendants are whites. and that esaus descendants will serve jacobs descendants as the birthright says.

This is a great question and there has indeed been research into this that has yielded some theories.

Theory 1: (audible patterns)

There is a theory that peoples that lived in grassland savannas tend to have more intricate musical patterns than peoples that lived in other terrains. The thought being that grassland and lowland savannas by nature tend to allow sound to travel further and more accurately. This is thought relevant due to hunter gatherers leaving the homesite further and further away and over time using chants, percussions and "music" as a communicative network with the homesite.. Over time, this disposition toward chants, pervussions and music proves beneficial and is made more complex to communicate more complicated messages...thus over time providing survival value that can be refined and passed fown through darwinian and mendelian mechanisms.

thanks timbs that was useful.

also another good question about sound is why are asian people usually better at identifying specific musical notes than other peoples. i know its related to pitch and that asian people seem to use pitch a lot more in their speech to stress different syllables.
