  I'm curious if there have ever been any non biased studies of the physical and cognitive differences between the different races here on Earth?

It's a touchy subject, just by doing the study, one could be considered racist.

Unless the study were conducted by a diverse group with no agenda, it would be hard to believe the results.

Although in my opinion, such a study is a step in the wrong direction. We should be concentrating on how much we are alike .

It's better to walk alone, than with a crowd going in the wrong direction. H.S.

If you talk about diverse, there are two ways of diverse.

First in the sense there are two types of diversity to note:

identity diversity, which is the diversity defined as defined through politically correct terms, which talks about racial diversity, sexual orientation diversity, diversity of sex, etc.

The other definition of diversity as I mostly favor is psychodiversity, which is defined as the diversity in thought and worldview. Sample of use of this term: universities of today lack psychodiversity since they no longer allow ideas deemed "politically incorrect".

With having no agenda, that is agreeable, but especially if they are conscious about that.

Anyways, finding a correlation between races and IQ seems controversial and according to some refutable. However, there have also been correlations between brain size and race, with genes linked to brain size, susceptibility to chemicals that are known to reduce IQ (i.e. fluoride (has been correlated, but reasoning by thinking about interaction with aluminium (AlF3 forms) is enough to prove one mechanism), mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, etc). A reason for this is has to do with how much fat the brain has, especially in infants (differentiated by race).
