As already stated, instead of listening to the sound of your own horn blowing about it, listen to the meaning of Norm's ideas as expressed through someone who has had the chance to learn from him what his beliefs are like Haplo. Haplo clearly stated that although certain races like the aborigines have not yet naturally evolved to the same level as certain other races, they are in no way inferior to us. To the contrary they often express a deeper wisdom to the so called 'evolved' races like us who plunder earth's resources etc.
Do you think that if Norman's ideas were racist he would be teaching this kind of viewpoint to those who associate with him regularly?

"It is irrelevant whether or not members of these races are spiritually of equal value."

It is not irrelevant at all. In fact it is of vital importance to your argument because a key element of any racist ideology is the negation of the worth of a people based solely on certain psycho/phisiological differences.
Look at the black athletes. Science has shown that their muscle fibers are different from those of caucasians and other races because they are leaner but have the same capacity for releasing energy. Some claim this make them superior athletes. But does this mean they as a whole are a superior race because of this difference in physiology? Of course not. All races are equal because we are all created and sustained by the same divine intelligence manifesting this creation.
I believe Norman, better than many people at this time, understands this. Probably better than even you O wise one.

Now let me ask you a question:
Do you believe all races, even though sharing the same divine parentage and spark of God within them, are yet equally evolved physiologically or even intellectualy? If so,why is it that there is such disparity between the understanding of some races in regard to natural forces and scientific principles, or of technological development or expression of spiritual
understanding within their various communities?
Doesnt this show, without being racist, that there exists some obvious difference in the degree of evolution? Why is it that some races, like the aborigines for example, in their skull structure, resemble more closely the archetypal skull structures of our common prehistoric ancestors?
Laying aside Norman's theory for a moment. What is your opinion about these things?
