Humans Getting Dumber As Species

A scientist claims humans are potentially getting dumber as a species.

Are humans getting dumber as a species?

Stanford University professor Gerald Crabtree's research into human kind's intelligence suggests that due to the low level of competition for basic necessities in the modern world, the best and brightest aren't the only ones naturally selected for survival and procreation anymore.

Civilization and modern medicine allow for even the dumbest and most physically unfit to survive and pass their genes on to the next generation.

In the distant past, survival wasn't so easy.

The Darwinian concept of evolution dictates that only the people who could navigate the complexities of life on earth would be able to live on and provide for their offspring.

Crabtree says: New developments in genetics, anthropology, and neurobiology... make a clear prediction that our intellectual and emotional abilities are genetically surprisingly fragile.

When comparing genomes of parents and their children, it turns out that there are somewhere between 25 and 65 DNA mutations between each generation.

Other scientists oppose Crabtree's ideas saying that there is no real way to test his theory.

What do you think? Are humans getting dumber due to the conveniences of modern life?

How I See the US After Living in Europe for 2.5 Years | minimalist travel

I didn't think visiting the States after travelling through Europe for the past 2.5 years would be so difficult (yet illuminating at the same time), but I've experienced major culture shock in the past three weeks. I knew the American way of life was a certain way before leaving the States, but now that I've been away for a while, I feel like I view things differently. These are only a few of the major differencesI've noticed between life in the US vs. life in Europe. I have a lot more to discuss but I didn't want to make the video SUPER long. Thanks for watching!

Why Do Stupid People Think They're Smart? The Dunning Kruger Effect (animated)

The Dunning-Kruger effect can be observed during talent shows like American Idol. The auditions are usually filled with a variety of good and bad singers. The ones who are bad at it, almost never realize how bad they really are.

Low ability people do not possess the skills needed to recognize their own incompetence or lack of knowledge. Their poor self-awareness leads them to overestimate their own capabilities.

However when you become more knowledgeable about a certain topic, that confidence falls. Only when you start to reach above average skill, is when the your confidence about a certain topic starts to pick up again.

But why? Why does being less skilled make you more confident in your abilities?

Emotionally Unintelligent America Idocracy

💥 TRIGGER WARNING: Reproducing 💥

Do not watch if easily offended!

It's my belief that the #1 threat to humanity isn't all the obvious things we think of like greed, corporations, etc.

These are actually side effects of the real, underlying cause of today's dysfunction:

Unqualified parents.

Now, for those of you who've been following me, or who've read the The Divorce is Your Fault article on my page (yes, a true statement said to me by my mother), you'll know why I argue this case so strongly.

We all tend to agree that parenting is the hardest job in the world,

yet few question the innate right we all have to reproduce our own children, no matter what.

I once read in a book about victims of child abuse, how often times these children grow up having more compassion, empathy, and connection to animals than they do humans.

We see this truth on a mass level now, with all the sudden awareness around ANIMAL adoption....

I have to call our society out on some serious BS.

Really guys? We started shaming people for leaving DOGS in shelters before kids?

I don't have all the answers, but I know a way more serious conversation needs to ensue around the epidemic of narcissistic parenting in this country.

Dumm – Great German Words #26

Before Germans came, Americans were just stupid – thanks to them, we can now also be dumb.

Weird, wonderful, disturbing, challenging, funny – the video and podcast series Great German Words (on iTunes & Podbean) presents words everyone needs or at least should think about.

Eric T. Hansen is an American writer – originally from Hawaii – who has lived in Germany for 30 years.

He writes non-fiction books about German culture and politics (Planet Germany, Planet America), sometimes satirical, sometimes provocative articles and columns (Zeit Online) and novels under the name Ule Hansen (Neuntöter, Blutbuche), all in German. His only book in English is Losing My Religion, about loving and leaving the Mormon church.

ARE WE GETTING DUMBER? (let me test you)

Are we really getting dumber? We often assume that humanity is getting dumber from our own perspective. When we see how people mindlessly play with their phones and other digital technology, it might appear that intelligence is on the decline. But are we getting dumber from this sort of behavior? I will test you in this vlog to see if your current behavior and inclinations are positive and beneficial. In the end, we all need to consider whether the way we are living our lives is moving humanity in a positive direction or not. Instead of defending our modern way of life, its time to put this modern life under the microscope. Watch to find out more.
