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.

Leaving aside your fellow Paulsen admirer Joe Belton/Dwayanu's absurd impersonation of a semi-literate 17 year old called Haplo, we can easily see that this is not what Paulsen teaches, unless he has changed his views. Paulsen states that certain races have inferior brains, how then are they "in no way" (your words) inferior? If they have inferior brains then they are clearly inferior in at least one way, that of brain development.

At best your argument seems to be that Paulsen claims all races are equal spiritually even if they are not equal mentally and physically. A vacuous statement with no substance.

It's no good trying to deflect attention from Paulsen's racist ideology by asking for my views. I do not claim to have all the answers. I do not claim to have any supernatural insight. Paulsen does, as do you.

Neither is it any use refering us to scientists studying ethnology. Scientists look at the evidence and derive theories from the evidence available. Paulsen does not. Paulsen simply states his own prejudices, and palms them off to his gullible believers as divine insight.
