We begin this paper by attempting to define the highly nebulous, ambiguous and misleading concept of race, and review current literature to show that the term ‘race’ is a fundamentally a highly antiquated and flawed concept. We also revisit various other contemporary theories on human classification including anthropometric and genetic ones. We also summarize the principles, concepts and tenets of our paper of the ‘Certainty uncertainty principle’ for the social sciences which was published by us early in the year 2023, and show how the principles of this paper can be used to demonstrate how and why racism and scientific racism are highly dubious and questionable concepts. Even though these concepts have been more or less jettisoned by mainstream researchers and scientists, they continue to linger on in the collective imagination of the common folk, who harbour qualms and inhibitions about the absolute equality of all humans. We also discuss the ‘Flynn effect’ in all its ramifications, and propose the ‘Comprehensive socio-cultural persecution complex’ to account for alleged differences in IQ scores from across cultures and societies. We also not only discuss the merits and demerits of IQ tests, but also review the concepts of persecution complex, discrimination complex, and inferiority complex. Of course, the objective of any form of research is to get to the truth, and we stand steadfastly by this principle at all times. We only recommend that certain factors based on the ‘Certainty uncertainty principle’ for the social science must be isolated before getting to the absolute truth which would be the ultimate goal of any meaningful research.
