White Racists maintain that Northern Europeans are superior, and the cause is that they had to adapt to the harsh cold conditions of Northern West Asia. While I do agree that Europeans are advanced, their argument that the cause is geographical is absurd for:
(1) Polar people, like the Lapps, Nenet, etc. live several hundred kilometers to the North, in much harsher climates, and they are always tested as having one sigma lower IQ than Northern Europeans. Cold climate increases head size but not IQ. There is no correlation between latitude and IQ.
(2) Northern Europeans, like the Swedish Goths, live in the area only the last few thousand years, having immigrated from Eastern Europe. The original Goths are found in the Azov Sea and Crimea. The expansion of warlike Hun, Petcheneg, Mongol peoples from Eastern Asia pushed them out of their homeland (although still there are Goth speaking villages in the Crimean peninsula) and forced them look for refuge in the Roman empire. They settled in Northeast Europe, which was empty in those times.
(3) Modern population genetical studies show that Europe's original, ancestral population is almost unrepresented in the people we find there today, which originated in Turkey and colonized Europe by gradual agricultural expansion. The Ice people, if any, did not survive to our days.
The highest IQ national population is found in Japan, which is a semi-tropical country.
