exponential growth, followed by exponential decline.

But... we're getting more intelligent every generation. We just have way, WAY more advanced social media then we used to, so it seems like people do stupid stuff more often, when in reality, people have always done stupid stuff.

If you don't believe me, ask an elderly person for help with your math. They probably didn't even know that letters could be a part of math.

At least from my experience rich people don't have many kids. And, rich people are usually smart. Whereas the poorer people I know have ~2-4 kids and aren't as intelligent.
As for asking an old person about algebra who would remember highschool math that you don't use daily after 50 years?
IMO: average IQ will drop gradually, but we will have a few geniuses still.

well not so much stupidity but general weaknesses like lactose intolerance and allergies that would have been bred out because, well you know, the ones with them would have died before spreading their genes.. the stupidity comes from lack of education and discipline, children need to be put into line. i was punished corporally as a child if i didn't do my chores, acted out or if i didn't do my homework and i've turned out to be a decent hard working contributor of society, if anything it's the laws that we have now days banning parents from hitting their kids if they do something wrong that are the main problem with children being idiotic fools with their swag and yolo **** . if i were to have been like that i'd have had my head slapped and told to button down and do my school work by my step dad, my mother would have had me cleaning all the dishes in the cuboards and cleaning the house by scrubbing the floor, walls and roof or polishing all the shoes and then cutting the edge of the lawn with a pair of scissors or doing push ups, sit ups and running on the treadmill till i almost passed out before sitting me down and making me do my homework and then some.. she used to be a drill sergeant in the air force and knew how to get **** done, she even did room inspections and had us up at the crack of dawn to do what we were supposed to do.. and this was from the age of six

If anything our modern society is an even greater danger to people with serious allergies. As for lactose intolerance it's more of a mild inconvenience for most people and I highly doubt it would have been bred out as well. I agree with the rest of your comment. Raising the next generation is the responsibility of previous ones.

Odd how the average iq in the population is increasing then

Its called dysgenics if anyone's interested. Sadly it also applies to all physical flaws as well; poor eyesight, weak frame, asthma.

Essentially, we are ******* up natural selection.

We are a species intelligent enough to invent medicine, natural selection is our bitch.

One more reason why I don't agree with evolution
User avatar #213 to #212 - sidathon (01/30/2013) [-]
How does that relate to this? Besides it being thought up from the same guy.

No way, the second one is so much better.

You know, there was a German with the same idea about 80 years ago

That's not 'natural' selection. It's human selection. We could in theory evolve humans like we did bananas and dogs. All the factors of natural selection have been overwritten by human selection which allows even handicapped people who'd never have survived some hundred years back. We evolve our technology instead, to do all the work for us

Having read some of those labels, I think it's a great thing that it's a special occurrence in the U. S. of fukken A.

In my country, those idiots don't get past early childhood. And this country is rich.

Sounds a bit like the plot of "Idiocracy". A bit. Just the part about stupid people surviving to reproducing and blow the ratio of smart-to-stupid, not so much the WHY.
