- Jack was not hired in favor of Jill.
- Jack had a superior education to Jill.
- Jill was hired by virtue of greater intelligence than Jack.
- DNA tests show that Jack lacks an allele of the XYZ gene associated with higher intelligence that Jill has.
- It is illegal to discriminate on the basis of one's genome.
- It is illegal for Jill to be hired for, in essence, having a gene that Jack lacks.
- Because genetic advantages may not be used as the basis for hiring, only education can be considered.
- Jack should have been hired.
The obvious question is how a employer determines if the advantage in intelligence was due to the XYZ gene or other factors. I tried to muddy the issue by giving Jack the better education.
