So, what would classify as stupid? Besides the retards who believed "#cutforbeiber.

I don't think the warning labels interfere with natural selection, 'cause you have to be pretty stupid NOT to read the warning labels.

But, but, intelligence isn't hereditary...
User avatar #262 to #259 - collegedood (01/30/2013) [-]
watch the move "idiocracy". it explains everything
#261 to #259 - anon (01/30/2013) [-]
Meh. the stupidity of parents may rub off on the kids, making them not worry about education. Stupid parents help make their kids stupid.
#260 to #259 - anon (01/30/2013) [-]
It isn't, but if you have stupid parents, 9 times out of 10, the child will be stupid as a result of the stupid parenting.

Socialism is undermining natural selection amongst humans. Whereas in nature, the weak would fail to breed and die and the strong would breed and pass on their genes; society now artificially supports those to survive who otherwise would not. The bad genes are being passed down more numerously than the good genes, and so ultimately what we are experiencing is the devolution of mankind as a species.

We've evolved past nature's limits...
#290 to #286 - donglewotsit (01/31/2013) [-]
No. We are as much part of nature as anything else. You'd be naive to think we were above it.
User avatar #291 to #290 - newposterintown (01/31/2013) [-]
Nature's limits, not nature, dummy.

idiocracy is probably going to turn out to be even more accurate than we feared.

I suppose you would like that Eugenics started up again, wouldn't you?

Holy **** , Idiocracy is actually on TV right now.

Getting smarter makes us stupid.... okay...
#253 to #234 - anon (01/30/2013) [-]
He meant biologically smarter. He didnt mean the overall knowledge we gathered, which has ofcourse greatly increased.
User avatar #232 - psychopilot (01/30/2013) [-]
That's not true. Look up the Flynn effect.
#246 to #232 - anon (01/30/2013) [-]
Oh god, I love throwing the Flynn effect into arguments to **** with adults.

By the by, it's actually assumed that we're not necessarily increasing in intelligence, it's just that we're more practiced at problem solving due to interactive puzzles and games.

your just NOW realizing this??
Warning labels prevent natural selection

<how i feel knowing this for years

Anyone else see the contradiction? If our generation gets dumber each generation, how do we develop better medicine?
User avatar #245 to #221 - mrnolanbarker (01/30/2013) [-]
Doctor's or scientists in the medical field are getting smarter, everyone else....not so much.
User avatar #230 to #221 - galkawhm (01/30/2013) [-]
As a whole we get more stupid. Only a few people have to be smart.

the theory of natural selection no longer applies to us, as it has become to easy for us to survive. much like when certain animals are placed in perfect environments and ruin the ecosystem around them with overpopulation and over eating.
User avatar #243 to #209 - ninjasquirle (01/30/2013) [-]
I'm really worried FJ, here we are complaining about every one getting less intelligent by the generation. Yet here we are completely misunderstanding basic biological theories ourselves. Maybe you should complain when you have more than a middle school understanding of biology.
User avatar #266 to #243 - iforgetwhattosay (01/30/2013) [-]
okay yes, i'm not good at biology and i realize it was not proper to mention natural selection in this context. though i still think the basic idea of my statement is valid, don't you think?
User avatar #275 to #266 - ninjasquirle (01/30/2013) [-]
Well natural selection will always apply but people need to remember natural selection is a theory to explain the observation. In this case the most fit of the species produces more, whether or not intelligence is even being factored anymore depends on our environment. As far as nature goes as long as produce more kids than the next guy and most of them live then your succeeding at life. Intelligence was probably once a major determining factor but in reality it has always been about resources. Many account the Renascence being helped out majorly by the massive die off from the plague freed up alot more resources, people started eating better (are reached heights of normal humans similar to ancient times, this won't happen again until the industrial revolution.) and were able to live better because of it. Too many people dismiss diet as a factor in intelligence anymore but take a two day fast from eating then a take a test, the lack of nutrients and calories to an extreme can make it hard to remember your own name. Basically like machines, humans need the right fuel to perform optimally, and in the processed food of today is unfortunately largely empty of nutrients. Intelligence however is not an inheritable trait, if someone is stupid or lazy and not consistently malnourished (many young girls today don't eat enough to get proper vitamins and minerals in the quantity they need), they probably just had lazy parents and followed their work ethic. Largely the failing of our generation can be blamed on the previous ones for their "everybody is a winner" attitude can really sap the motivation out of people by giving them praise for not even trying anymore.

seen this movie?
#224 to #195 - anon (01/30/2013) [-]
Isn't that basically a documentary of how that America country is now?
User avatar #200 to #195 - holsety (01/30/2013) [-]
This is pretty much my fear for the future, as it is true that the dumb keep procreating and the smart have 1 or 2 kids tops.
#194 - thebritishguy (01/30/2013) [-]
it's not true though, I.Q has gone up loads since the 60's
User avatar #204 to #194 - beerterror (01/30/2013) [-]
Do you see that? Well I don't. And IQ isn't an indication for wisdom and common sense.
User avatar #216 to #204 - theshadowed (01/30/2013) [-]
But it says in the post intelligence. Not wisdom
User avatar #219 to #216 - beerterror (01/30/2013) [-]
In my opinion intelligence without wisdom is worth **** , and it creates danger and moral black hole, to quote a certain band.
User avatar #211 to #204 - piobaireachd (01/30/2013) [-]
mass media has allowed us to see the stupidest people firsthand
plus people just seem dumber if they're in larger quantities. Their stupid traits stand out
User avatar #222 to #211 - beerterror (01/30/2013) [-]
Perhaps you're right. But the modern understanding of intelligence isn't helping anyway.
User avatar #210 to #204 - thebritishguy (01/30/2013) [-]
maybe our I.Q has gone up meaning we see no point in educating ourselves and some of us want to have an ignorant blissful lives were they don't get involved in conflict or deep thought, our intelligence and freedom has become our enemy
User avatar #214 to #210 - beerterror (01/30/2013) [-]
Ancient Greeks would laugh at such stupidity. If you say that ignorance is bliss, then you can call cattle in the field "happy". But yes, it's possible. Sinister, but possible.
User avatar #244 to #214 - thebritishguy (01/30/2013) [-]
I think in some cases my own knowledge has upset me like I know that when I buy something it could have been made by a poor child or even slave on terrible conditions. I would be happier if I didn't know that but I don't regret learning about it.
#197 to #194 - anon (01/30/2013) [-]
I.Q. isn't overall intelligence jackass, it's the ability to learn.
User avatar #196 to #194 - HarvietheDinkle (01/30/2013) [-]
That's the result of education - another variable.
User avatar #191 - hauptishere (01/30/2013) [-]
I don't think we're getting dumber, we're just able to see more of the dumb people due to media advances such as television and internet. Also, channels like MTV and E! have shows dedicated to idiocy.

.... So you're just gonna pull stupid things out of your ass and sct like you know what you said, huh? The percentage isn't getting higher... The percentage stays the same, while the total population grows making the number of smart people higher.. But not the percentage.
