  • This sounds a lot like the stories about how we're all going to evolve to be four-foot-tall greys who are missing pinky toes.

    That's only after the Lizard Aliens from the Zeta Reticuli Galaxy make their move on December 12, 2012, and finally reveal themselves to the world at large, like David Icke was warning us all along.

    Once they reverse-terriform the planet for their kind, and all of humanity is forced to live in the lower gravity of the Lagrange Colonies and Luna, that will be the form humanity eventually evolves into.

  • I'd argue humans haven't been sexually selecting on the basis of intelligence in a major way in the past ten thousand years, and that hasn't stopped us from building a giant world dominating super culture.

  • We are evolving in a lopsided dumbbell shape with the humans of lower intelligence mating with each other and creating a large lower-intelligence group on the one hand and humans of higher intelligence mating with each other and creating a distressingly smaller high-intelligence group on the other. While there is some cross intelligence mating, for the most part like mates with like and the better educated, higher income, higher intelligence people produce high intelligence kids while the uneducated, poor, low intelligence people produce large broods of low intelligence kids.

    We're all still homosapiens, so there's no problem with mating yet, but give it 10,000 years and we'll be completely different species.

    Whoa, man, dumb it down. We're not all rocket surgeons here.

    They do quite a bit of selection based on finances, and the children from wealthier families are more likely to prosper. So I would argue that intelligence (reflected in your ability to gain and maintain wealth) is a driving factor in human cultures even if its not enforced by nature.

    /being poor a century ago was far more lethal than being poor today.
    /being rich in a polygamist culture is also a great way to spread your genes.
  • Nowhere is this more evident than in these punk kids one sees every day. They're little more than blithering idiots, barely capable of interacting with others or their environment.
  • I would argue the greater concern for human intelligence is proper prenatal and adolescent nutrition as well as a developmentally engaging environment. However, the comments made in this appear to be just a short opinion piece compared to any novel research.

    This man just summed up the entirety of the "news" produced by the Daily Fail.

    The only measure of intelligence that correlates with income and personal wealth is degree of higher education, which itself has been shown to be mostly a side effect of having wealth to begin with. There's no scientific support for your view. If there was, every population would have equal upward and downward mobility based on their place on a theoretical "absolutely" intelligence bell curve.
  • Is that the back of Obama's head?

    Wow. Just wow.

    but you say world dominating super culture like it's a good thing. sad truth is there may have been a time when folks lived in peace, their extended families working together as they tended a farm like environment and thrived. in time someone somewhere was born with a badly wired brain who chose to use violence to take what he wanted instead of earning his daily bread.

    as more time went on this mentally ill violent doosh found others to join him on his daily riff-raffing. and they took to terrorizing local extended families, burning their homes, raping the women and making the men their slaves. by being horrible violent dooshbags their wealth and power grew. this shiat kept happening and voila look at the world today.

    the sooner we get back to eugenics - no, not mass killing, just selective breeding - the better off mankind will be. we have far too many horrible pieces of shiat making babies they don't want, can't raise, and often neglect or simply beat to death. pretending this isn't so won't make it stop. having babies should be a privilege for those most well suited to do same. it doesn't take a board of geniuses to figure out who should be sterilized and who may be considered to be parents.
