: whoa!!!! I think you missed the point, or are you suggesting that we should 
: measure the heritability of IQ so we can breed for (or against) that trait???
: the concept of heritability is only useful as a tool in a selection 
: experiment...

Just because you study the heritability of a trait does not mean that you
will run out and select for that trait.  Knowledge does not have to be applied.
