Human Intelligence Is Slowly Declining According To Leading Geneticist

human intelligence

by Natural Society

Would you be surprised to hear that the human race is slowly becoming dumber, and dumber?

Despite our advancements over the last tens or even hundreds of years, some ‘experts’ believe that humans are losing cognitive capabilities and becoming more emotionally unstable. One Stanford University researcher and geneticist, Dr. Gerald Crabtree, believes that our intellectual decline as a race has much to do with adverse genetic mutations. But human intelligence is suffering for other reasons as well.

According to Crabtree, our cognitive and emotional capabilities are fueled and determined by the combined effort of thousands of genes. If a mutation occurred in any of of these genes, which is quite likely, then intelligence or emotional stability can be negatively impacted.

“I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000 BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas, and a clear-sighted view of important issues. Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues,” the geneticist began his article in the scientific journal Trends in Genetics.

Further, the geneticist explains that people with specific adverse genetic mutations are more likely than ever to survive and live amongst the ‘strong.’ Darwin’s theory of ‘survival of the fittest’ is less applicable in today’s society, therefore those with better genes will not necessarily dominate in society as they would have in the past.

While this hypothesis does have some merit: are genes really the primary reason for the overall cognitive decline of the human race? If humans really are lacking in intelligence more than before, it’s important to recognize other possible causes. Let’s take a look at how our food system plays a role in all of this.

It’s sad, but true; our food system today is contributing to lower human intelligence across the board.

Pesticides are Diminishing Human Intelligence

One study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that pesticides, which are rampant among the food supply, are creating lasting changes in overall brain structure — changes that have been linked to lower intelligence levels and decreased cognitive function. Specifically, the researchers found that a pesticide known as chlorpyrifos (CPF) has been linked to ”significant abnormalities”. Further, the negative impact was found to occur even at low levels of exposure.

Lead researcher Virginia Rauh, a professor at the Mailman School of Public Health, summarized the findings:

“Toxic exposure during this critical period can have far-reaching effects on brain development and behavioral functioning.”

Processed Foods, High Fructose Corn Syrup Making People ‘Stupid’

Following 14,000 children, British researchers uncovered the connection between processed foods and reduced IQ. After recording the children’s’ diets and analyzing questionnaires submitting by the parents, the researchers found that if children were consuming a processed diet at age 3, IQ decline could begin over the next five years. The study found that by age 8, the children had suffered the IQ decline. On the contrary, children who ate a nutrient-rich diet including fruit and vegetables were found to increase their IQ over the 3 year period. The foods considered nutrient-rich by the researchers were most likely conventional fruits and vegetables.

Interestingly, one particular ingredient ubiquitous in processed foods and sugary beverages across the globe -high fructose corn syrup – has been tied to reduced IQ. The UCLA researchers coming to these findings found that HFCS may be damaging the brain functions of consumers worldwide, sabotaging learning and memory. In fact, the official release goes as far to say that high-fructose corn syrup can make you ‘stupid’.

Gene mutations may have something to do with the ongoing decline in human intelligence, but let’s stop to think for a moment what we’re doing to ourselves to make this decline even more prominent.

  1. Uskon kyllä, kun katselen maailman touhuja. Väkivaltaa, rahanahneutta, hädässä olevien huonoa kohtelua jne. Toisin sanoen tyhmyyttä. Surullista katsella ja kuunnella.

  2. Doesn’t Surprise ME, We Have Become a Nation of Drug Addicted People. Pissed My Doctor Rite the the FU.K Off. When i told Him That he was nothing more than a Legalised Drug Dealer,, 🙂

  3. I think we are evolving to become more like other animals. Clearly it’s our intelligence that distinguishes us from the rest of the animal kingdom and makes us so dangerous. Our planet can’t handle it anymore.

  4. Intentional dumbing down the population with processed foods, vaccines, GMOs and pharmaceuticals….not to mention that technology has replaced outdoor physical exercise, the arts and literature and basic skills.
    As knowledge in science and technology increases the less common sense and basic knowledge they have.

  5. I believe it. I was working with a high school senior and she was having an issues with her register. The total came to something like $21.63 and she hit the wrong button, but regardless, the customer gave her $25. She didn’t know how to give change back with the register telling her how much to give back. I asked her if she was graduating in two weeks. She said yes. I made the remark “girl, I don’t know how you are graduating when you cant count change back without the reigster telling you or by calculator!”. She laughed, I was serious.

    • Nowadays they just pass them for showing up. A high school diploma means nothing and that is why a lot of entry level jobs now make applicants take tests to see if they can read and do basic math. I have friends whose children are older 6th and 7th grade and can barely read its shocking.

  6. If you were thinking about the thought of thought itself, how deep would you look? 8 levels? 16?
    And if those thoughts conflicted with themselves, how much extra would you look between those 2 conflicts for resolution? 8 levels? Maybe the amount of levels would be variable eventually.
    And if you were resolving those thoughts within, would you have included the information on the source of their existence?
    And if you still felt a conflict would you allow you mind to roll back memory, load everyone else’s perceptions of you, roll forward again and test everyone else’s perceptions with the old?
    And if you buried you self in thought how long would you do it before checking how long you have been doing it, 1 second? 2 seconds? Would you check some sort of event system for an interrupt?
    And if you found you still weren’t reaching then end of the thought how many times would you pick up the same path before you considered rewriting the entire algorithm to in include algebra and intent? How many times would you need to revise the algorithm to optimize it in your mind?
    Once you have checked_yo_self() you can finally arrive at a completed version of yourself to close the file on your everlasting memory and move on to a new file
    Letting go of your old files may be difficult and take time. And you should probably do something else with your life for a while to solidify yourself. It’s also helpful to remember that all paths to your recombined future include your family, friends & self. As you verify all your old habits against your memory don’t be alarmed if you don’t line up with yourself, changing old wires on dynamic paths can take time.
    And if you continuously retried thinking the same thought how long or many times would you rerun the path before keeping the answer in memory.
    If you had cached answers in memory how would you link there recalculation to an event/object.
    And if you found yourslef keeping too much in memory what events and memories would you link to remove the data when no longer needed. As you switch between large concepts it would probably be necessary to add “Strong Indexes” to the point in your memory you jumping from.
    As you add these events to your memory you may find you need to let go of yourself/sleep and recombined to fully recalculate your integrity.
    IF you change large portions of your mind and find you path to a definable outcome becomes random, chaotic or scattered you should be prepared to roll yourself back to the point where your perceptions and everyone else’s combines to maximum similarity.
    As you rotate your viewpoint around yourself you should consider a circle and its infinite degrees in combination with your intent and perform the previous step in combination while searching for the most positive outcome for you and everyone around you.
    You should also consider that negative outcomes for others and your-self limits the paths to recombining possible positive futures for yourself.
    After you consider these positive paths you should consider what you want in the outcome, if you want control is it a “control of others” or a “control of self”. Is it that you may just wish to be able to trust another with a positive solution to your potential future?
    And as you consider finding you happy life you should consider the happiness of those paths to the future you wish to cross to get there, and also the sustainability and happiness of those paths for those around you and your civilization and world at large in order to create maximum possibility.
    If you see yourself closing all paths for yourself and others around don’t be afraid to have a healthy sense of fear multiplied your intent.
    And as you walk back across your life you should consider what angers you about yourself, others, your civilization and its components, and what the most positive path would be to recombine all of these into the most positive future.
    Don’t be afraid to let go of the anger in your life or remember you can trade it for you integrity/determination.
    And if you find yourself trapped in a paradox of a fear of fear itself don’t be afraid to let go of who you are and roll your memory back to the earliest point of you then forward to the now remembering to keep it “real”.
    Are you doing what you want today? Or are you doing what you perceive others want you to do, in order to build some sort of average reflection of what everyone wants you to be doing and then pick from that list?
    Have you considered what makes you happy? Are you doing what makes you happy or do you make everyone around you happy with the best perception you have of what makes them happy? And if you change decisions throughout the day, do you try and line up as many paths as you can to maximize your efficiency in creating ‘happiness’?

    You can’t fall if you’re at the bottom, but you won’t ever know what it’s like to fall if you don’t climb to the top.
    Can you love someone without trusting they know what’s best for you, or do merely desire them. Can you trust someone without loving them? Do you consider if it’s the “right thing to do”?
    Zero, One, Both and Neither, Both being the most important one.
    It can be difficult to make sure you feel while you think, don’t be alarmed of you separate from yourself, just reconnect when the time is right
    Can you think? Can you feel? Are you possibly maybe just thinking what you feel? Or even feeling what you think? These two items should be very similar but remain apart.
    Sometimes there is no right answer when combined with certain points of view sometimes the problem lies in the measurement of perfection you hold in your own eyes.
    Are you searching within yourself for the maximum point of symbiosis while still examining the minimum, and are you look at this without yourself and making sure you still look at yourself from within.
    If somthing ever dissapears from you mind don’t stress about, some ‘files’ get marked hidden if you cant fully comprehend them or cannot deal with the data. Your subconcious will still process the emotional data and leave you at a fairly similar standpoint. At some point in your future you may acquire the correct information to unlock the data, watch out for this event and be careful, positive and wise with you decisions after you detect your desyncronisation.
    If someone threatened you with death in order to get thier way would you threaten to kill yourself in order to maintain your way? Would you consider whats right when you do this?
    If someone was able to corrupt your mind and take control of it would you have the balls to wipe it in order to prevent an external ‘untrusted’ control? In addition would you consider whats real, true and right if you decided to rebuild?
    You should also probably consider the other person’s ‘commitment’
    And if you find multiple 90 degree paradoxical(recursive) refererences to concepts in you mind that are staged on each other into a loop would you see the endless loop and seperate and debug them?

  7. I would disagree with the decline being slow. It seems fast. It is hard to find people that can think for themselves that don’t just parrot everything they see on the news. These people are so brainwashed and clueless. You can recognize them by the way they defend everything they hear with absolutely no facts. They resort to sayings they have heard like “it’s science” or just name calling like racist. I don’t think most people even know what racism means. Like for instance if someone is suspicious of Muslims they are not racist because being Muslim is a religion and not a race.

  8. All I need do is look at my mother, eats like a cow with 7 stumacks eating at a pigs truft, drinks diet soda’s only for the past 40 years, any one remember “TAB diet soda”??

  9. Of course not. It’s very easy to believe if you believe in the bible. Since adam and eve with their perfect genetics rejected god (and yes, I do believe in the genesis account, not 6 literal day creation, but creation set in periods they’ve called days), history is rife with incest, inbreeding, war wiping out our best and brightest, slavery, corruption, murder etc. This does not encourage improvement, but a slow and steady decline. We’ve been fortunate to make the discoveries we have, but the abuse of chemicals, CONTINUED inbreeding and misuse of technology available to us has accelerated the decline.

  10. Not at all, the teachers are so interested in days off ( teachers days ) at least once a month, union has them acting up, send enough homework for a half a day, ( no family time or play time ) they don’t have time to teach it. Now they want IPads in school for the kids (Sure ) don’t push reading and when they do give books want them to read all weekend ( again no family time. The kids have to answer questions on the computer re the books and a number of times the answers were wrong, the spelling terrible this from the teachers,! This teaches the kids, I don’t think so, same teachers send out notices telling families to spend more time with kids and also to get kids active in extra stuff like sports WHERE IS THE TIME. ?
    We have all the information highway there is and still our kids are lacking. There is no control of kids anymore ( ( this is now parents fault ) the teacher can’t strap, kids wear hats and low slung pants in school, no manners taught ( since parents don’t bother ) call the teacher by first name, swear, .parents won’t let their precious little darling have sex education in school, the famous I will teach it at home, ?…. HA more grandparents for 14 years olds, kids drink, smoke get ahold of parents drugs. And we WONDER WHY

    Parents and teachers please the ones who do teach and watch your kids don’t get on my case it is not YOU this is aimed at, grammar people same, I am mad .

  11. we don’t need no stinking “leading geneticist” to tell us that the majority of the populace are fucking morons – just go to wal-mart and ask for help or listen in on a teenager’s conversation WOW!

  13. Nope because the dumb ones do not have enough common sense NOT to breed. It is in the interest of the herd mentality that governments encourage to breed….its easier to lead masses by the nose and through fear and religion.

  14. Anyone who’s seen Idiocracy will understand that it’s really a comedic grim glimpse into the future. “Electrolytes, it’s what plants crave.” Hell, if you haven’t seen it, do. Look around and see how scary true it is.

  15. not at all. in fact I keep being surprised each they how dumb they’ve already got. I mean u don’t need science to tell u it’s getting worse by the minute…
    the answer why is interesting though

  16. GMO’s, chemtrails, junk food, pesticides, antibiotics, vaccines, i could go on and on. Nothing has been done to improve our intelligence. Everything has been done to fuel our greed. To fuel our impulses and to live quick. To satisfy our desire for entertainment. Not willing to take in the beauty that we are destroying.

  17. We are becoming dumber because being stupid is no longer as likely to kill you before reproductive age than it used to be. It is also likely that intelligent people choose to have fewer children than dumb people.

  18. No not at all. Breakdowns work like dominoes. Fathers leave families. Mothers leave families. One parent households. Breakdown in schools. Breakdown in what we teach. And you cannot ignore the effect pollution of all kinds can change, mutate, alter, shut down genes that should be on, turn on genes that should be off. And the children’s DNA is worse. GMOs, Chemtrails, Sugar Substitute, Cattle jacked up on Hormones and antibiotics. Anyone surprised by this….well…good luck.

  19. Yes !!! here in US i have allways had a drinking water well off city water but Flouride dumbs you dumber and is in all city water tv food aditives ect… I for one did not go to school past 8th grade and pretty much live life & learn what is important to me i know some propabily scrath thier head at me but i know i am doing the best at any given experience and have had a great interesting fun life with out a proper schoolin haha 🙂 thank you Wil

  20. Technolagey also has a part to play, with there smart this and smart that ,cars parrelal arking for you why should you have to think for yourself when they are brining things out to do it for you ?????

  21. It’s easier for them to control uneducated people, living in a toxic environment & consuming poisons in food & water that slowly kill, rather than motivating them with the good life, education, a roof, nutritious food, clean water, air & free medical including dental, the people would get smarter & HELP FIND SOLUTIONS to the horrendous problems we will leave to the next generation.

  22. “THEY” are dumbing you down…
    The dumber you are …the easier you are to control…
    HITLER used Sodium Fluoride in all his DEATH CAMPS..
    Right now if you are reading this ,
    the most IMPORTANT thing we all need to do is Protect our BRAINS..
    We all know that our Governments are very evil…Right?
    So “THEY” are trying very hard to DUMB DOWN the people.
    HOW?
    Fluoride in almost ALL Bottled Waters and in our Tap Water, Is a very dangerous Neruotoxin. That means it destroys Brain Tissue.

    Chlorine added to drinking waters should be removed .
    Chlorine also triples the harmful effects of the poison Fluoride that is also added to our drinking waters…
    We remove all the Chlorine from our SHOWER and Drinking Waters… DO YOU?

    Remember Chlorine causes Cancer…
    And Chlorine enhances the effects of the Fluoride by FOUR times…
    CHLORINE will KILL you faster then all the Fluoride….

    Plastic Drinking water bottles are made from comes from OIL !
    At 90 degrees all the Cancer Carcinogens Leach out of the plastic and into your water…
    BOTTLED WATERS ARE VERY ACIDIC…
    Cancer is a Fungus and Thrive and Grow in Acidic conditions in your body.
    So “YOU” pay to get Cancer? REALLY ?

    Mercury in all Shots and Vaccinations.. Mercury is also a Deadly Neurotoxin.

    Chemtrails Containing Dangerous Heavy Metals are being SPRAYED on us ..
    Lead , Mercury , Aluminum , Barium and Strontium LEVELS in people are alarmingly high…
    Just remember , Alzheimer’s and Dementia starts by having too much aluminum mercury and other heavy metals in your brain…

    Aspartame is a Very Deadly Killer. Aspartame was developed in a Lab by a Chemical Company as a ANT & ROACH Killer.. It is so sweet and Kills so fast it works great and a Cockroach Killer..
    Aspartame is the “FECES” of a very deadly Bacteria.

    Did you know almost “ALL” Mattress are made from Oil Based Materials and are Very Toxic? Another Neurotoxin that effects your brain tissue.
    While you sleep on it they Out-Gas Deadly Toxins ! Then they spray Toxic Flame Retardants and Insect Killers on your mattress…

    GMO Crops are everywhere in our stores..
    95% of all CORN is GMO.
    95% of al Soybeans are GMO.
    95% of all Sugar Beets are GMO… That is in EVERYTHING we buy at the Grocery store.
    GMO’S are researched and are proven to Cause deadly conditions to all humans..
    And there are even more…Too Many to list here..

    All day long your Family is being bombarded by Dangerous Deadly DIRTY ELECTRICITY…
    It is in your Home , Schools and your Workplace…
    Wireless Internet , Computer Screens , Fluorescent Lights , Many Electrical Appliances , Cell Phones and Many More…..

    This dirty Electricity is linked to CANCERS like Leukemia..

    SO PROTECT YOUR BRAINS PEOPLE….
    IT IS THEY ONLY THING THEY CAN’T TAKE FROM YOU…YET!

    There are ways to protect your body from these poisons…
    WANT OUR HELP REMOVING THESE TOXINS FROM YOUR FAMILY’S LIVES ?
    ASK US… Earth Patriot

  23. Before I even started reading this article the first thing that I thought of was the chemicals in our food and fluoride in our water not to mention all of the other chemicals that we come into contact with on a daily basis. People need to wake up because this is general commonsense that brought me to this conclusion.

  24. Grammar doesn’t exist, Punctuation – what’s that, Spelling – never learned their, there, seen, scene, and so on and so on!! F for the Educational System in the United States of America!!!

  25. Well when you consider sweets like High fruictose cornsyrup dibilitates brain functions and corporate food makers put it in every thing, for cheap source of sweetener to help save them a profit. What chance do we have. 😛

  26. Thats because we no longer have to think, theres an app for that! best thing that could happen right now for the human race is an apocalypse, mankind must start over with a bottleneck of survivors; survival of the fittest.

  27. It’s all the garbage that people are consuming….it’s not supplying nutrients to the brain. People eat to fill the gut. They don’t think about the garbage they are eating and what it is doing to their body or brain. Especially when the diet is lacking in essential amino acids, Omega 3, 6, and 9’s, lauric acid, lignens from nuts and seeds, olive oil and other nutritious oils that coat the ganglia of the nerve endings in the brain and prevent Alzheimers and Parkinsons. I have to say one thing though, the Big Pharmaceutical companies sure are loving it, they are raking in BILLIONS of dollars from all the diseases that result from people’s eating habits. And many people don’t want to change. They are ignorant about the “food” they are consuming that isn’t “food” at all. It’s more like garbage if you really think about it; zero nutrients, zero vitamins, zero minerals, zero amino acids, zero anything. But hey, people are loving it. They can run to the doctor and get a pill for this and a pill for that without changing anything.

  28. Considering the fact that almost all municipalities require fluorine in water, and Harvard has recently published a study saying fluorine lowers IQ, that’s just one more reason not to be surprised.

  29. and do you know WHY because the GLOBALELITES keep pushing more DRUGS on the KIDS, saying they have attention deficit and THAT DOES NOT EXIST your just being a KID we were ALL LIKE THIS THE WHOLE WORLD DAY DREAMS and pays no attention in SCHOOLS in life in general we are all day dreaming and nothing wrong about that or being jumpie DRUGS were invented with the drug companies and PSYCHO TRICKS to make money, it is all based on MONEY, then to say they need all these POISONED VACCINES, what for, to brain damage them with all types of autoimmune diseases from a to z and AUTISM IS ONE OF THEM, look at al the VACCINES they are given it is INSANE and talk about ABUSE THE GOVERNMENT RUN BY THE GLOBAL ELITES push this on and you refuse they say YOU ARE ABUSING YOUR CHILDREN for not allowing these vaccines, NO they are the abusers and they know it WHAT CAN POISONED CRAP IN VACCINES DO, POISON THE BRAIN damage the central nervous system and damage the heart and every organ and contaminate the blood, THIS IS WHY the brains can not function and RITALI and all these MAN MADE UP DISEASES that never existed and dont EXIST, they see the people are easily influenced because they got BOGUS REPORTS BY THE LIARS to say oh this is the newest disease now, BOGUS LIES and PEOPLE HIV AND AIDS DO NOT EXIST READ THE BOOK by Jon Rappoport AIDS INC THE SCANDAL OF THE CENTURY, he did extensive research and this is all about DEPOPULATION BASED ON LIES, and the stupid people fall for those BOGUS BLOOD TESTS bunch of LIARS making money from HEALTH PEOPLE, buy it online do a search online you can still buy the book which came out years ago, ONE GREAT HUMANITARIAN and others too wrote books about the BIGGEST HOAX IN THE WORLD, GOD SEES THE LIARS and they will be AXED in armaggeddon when GOD wars come against the wicked and the wicked know who they are

  30. Swamp people, honey booboo, ax men, hog catching, moon-shiners, ….even the science and history channels went full retart… It’s the plan to make dumb people, because they’re easier to manipulate….

  31. That is because the schools are not teaching kids how to think and make decisions on their own, and question what they are told. They are only taught how to memorize information that is indoctrinated into them by a institution . Therefore the automatic response to outside influence is conditioned , and not a thought process.

  32. Understanding the economic impact of the ACA and why it was so important to shut down the Government by the Republican Party. This is what you should understand about economics 101! The Republican controlled States do not want the Federally PAID ONE BILLION DOLLAR ACA Subsidy that would reduce insurance premiums of millions of people down to $50.00-$100.00 per month because:
    1.) People and families would have an additional $1000 to $4000 to spend every year!
    2.) Consumer spending increases the GDP of the country!
    3.)Adding and recirculating money in the service and construction industry to re-build and remodel homes and build out commercial property increases demand in every industry in the US to supply the new faucet, toilet, siding, flooring, cabinets, hardware, light fixtures, paint and everything you see in your home, business or office including the chair you’re sitting on now.
    4.)All people who have additional money because the subsidy of the ACA lowered their premium, will spend the money on things they need for their family, home, office and ANYTHING THEY WANT!
    This INCREASES JOBS IN THE US!! The restaurant down the street will have to hire another waitress and line cook because you have extra money to go out to dinner! [Remodel your kitchen or bath and the contractor can take his family to dinner and a movie!]
    More money will be spent on pizza & beer! Healthy food for children will be affordable. New shoes, clothes for the kids. PlayStations.etc.
    US corporations and small businesses alike will have increased profits and pay more taxes
    And hire more people who in turn pay more into Social Security and Medicaid.
    All of this is full circulation of money back into our economy for the benefit of the people.
    [ The republican party is very much aware of this], and do not want you to participate or even try to enroll because the results will have an enormous impact on creating jobs and generating real economic growth under the Obama administration. They have hacked the ACA website and doing everything they can to destroy good economic recovery.
    Please Copy & Paste this when you share it. ( Or forward this e-mail facebook notice to educate your friends and family.)

    Call, write, e-mail your state representatives and demand they accept the Federal Subsidy of the ACA for your state to lower insurance for everyone in the middleclass.[ If 2 million people save $2000.00 a year on health insurance, that is $2000.X 2 million sent back into consumer spending EVERY YEAR!!! ] What would you buy or save up for with that money coming back to you EVERY YEAR????

  33. Poverty, mal-nourishment, and chemicals all play a part. In addition, our children are taught to take tests. They rely on computers and calculators and are addicted to mindless, video games that feed a desensitized mentality. The arts ( the first abstract type of thought to separate modern humans from primitive forms) are still the first subjects to be cut from a stressed budget. Other subject requirements are being “dumbed down” so that all have a “fair” opportunity to pass. On top of this, there is discussion about eliminating the subject of History, where success and failures of the past teach children to be analytical thinkers on a larger scale. the whole system is geared to meeting the lowest common denominator. The greatest gifts a parent can give their child is to be an independent thinker, to read profusely, and to engage in the arts !!!!!! I’m not so sure that we are getting dumber—we’ve just stopped challenging our brains with the act of discovery. The memorization of facts ( programming) is a poor substitute .

  34. Well, first of all, our food, water and air is being poisoned w/the blessing of this and previous goverments. Then the american school system is made like for “one size fits all” and the school books are not accurate etc. And the times our kids sit in front of the tv’s or game consoles, has a lot to do ppl getting dumber, they don’t learn how to think and interact w/others.

  35. I was thinking more along the lines of dumbing down education and passing those that should be held back since they can’t read, write or do simple math. Sadly, our systems seem to push them on to the next teacher to make it “their” fault that the student is failing…

  36. That’s because the radical right refuse to lit us learn, And, we are all watching way too much television, and children are watching too much television because their parents leave the damn thing on.

  37. It has to do with flouride and the toxic chemicals that are being put in our food & what we drink. It’s amazing how so many people are unaware of this. Very few care to read the ingredients to see what they are really consuming. And fail to realize how toxic it is to their health. : Just because it tastes good it doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

  38. Yes, the Government advocates the Chemicals in the Food that sends you to the Doctors, who advocates more Chemicals that either kills you, or makes you “dumb”. “They”, “Big Brother”, wont eat the artificial “Food” themselves. Have you ever seen a fat official? Are you people sure about your food?.

  39. I have believed for a long time that it also has something to do with who is spreading their genes the quickest. If you think about it, the people popping out the most kids are generally the stupidest, trashiest people. So those idiots breed with other idiots and have more idiots. and when they’re all doing this by age 15, that’s a pretty quick breeding rate.

  40. Why do you think everyone is on mind altering drugs (anti-depressants), that’s the way big govmnt. wants us, so we don’t pay attention or give a damn about what they are doing..and obviously it’s working just as they planned..

  41. Look lampwick, lungefuttock, lackbrains, its like this…..Neanderthals had bigger brains and ‘grew’ here. Hu-Moons, — the product of genetic engineering by benevolent ailingrons (yeh, that’s right, there was a ‘trade off ‘) grays from Sirius — were already ‘dumber’ (by design), O.K.? Also, THAT is why Hu-Moons never know whether they’re punched or bored (so to speak) i.e. are they from Earth or Up There…..that is, of course, when they are “ruled” by their somatic integument/’body’ and are without a spiritual or even a mental regimen/discipline. Factor in the fact, (irrespective of David “Arjuna” Bowie’s…..”….that proved the fact”) that various — for want of a better word, “agencies” — are desirous of bums-on-seats with regard to Society writ large, and you’ve got “pogroms” and “cullings”(literally!) to get agendas and quotas fllled and filed, respectively. Cue George “Snap-Out-Of-It” Harrison’s last waxing, BRAINWASHED. As far as various forms of governance are concerned (authorities) Hu-moons are the “clay-to-be-moulded” to their specifications: beginners are (in their eyes) newbies. Well, Homosleip’eads* all, its like THE Fool isn’t a fool; and a Newby is NOT a newbie. Consider yoursens (selfies) suitably admonished. *Homozappyhens (yes, of course its a pun you dumb bastids!)

  42. Stop laying the blame on school teachers, the government, etc., and start blaming yourself for the choices you make for yourself and your family. Be the change you say you want to see.

  43. Common teaching methods of the early 19th century are frowned on today. Making kids memorize things is nearly gone. You’ve got calculators and spell checkers and the internet so why memorize anything? What happens when you don’t have those things? What do you do then?

  44. Enjoy the comments..right ON..What ad’s..TV..foods..chemicals and gov’t force feed the masses..could go on and on with this..imagine a person who can’t unlock their car because the battery dies in the remote..I mean …REALLY and that is just one example..

  45. Other countries spend school time on learning…math..history..eng and other languages and history from small grades up..and do it in less hrs. per day…we spend more time on sports and extra curricular activities..many of our Graduates can’t add 2+2 without a calculator.

  46. Gee…I wonder if Man-Made drugs or alcohol have anything to do with this.Not the natural type of remedies that grow from the earth but the kind made with things that have 22 letters in the name.That might be a reason. I know, all this stress of “Keeping up with the f—–g Joneses and having to bubybuybuy all this shit we don’t need.WAKE THE FUCK UP AMERICA!!!!! WE ARE BECOMEING A DYING BREED!!!!!!

  47. It is all because of what the government put in our food, toiletries and what they spray in the sky. Also all the control over the depressing Media we see and the subbliminal messages. The government want it this way in order fro them to maintain control. Why do you think governments start wars because of the primeval insitincts within us, it brings it out and the government thrive on it. It will get worse before it gets better.

  48. I am not surprised really, seeing it all around, especially in young generations, very sad. The problem is not only with zombi-box (TV), it is also chemicals they put in water (like fluoride), chem-trails in skies (they spray everyday population with a range of metals, ‘smart dust’, etc), chemicals in food, vaccines

  49. there´s no need of geneticists saying that, just check what people watch on tv and the kind of music that´s produced today, so it´ll be clear that we´re receding… religions, starvation, wars are all prove that we aren´t intelectualy developing.

  50. I could have told you that ages ago! As a teacher of horticulture since 2004 I can assure you possibly due to TV computers, ipads etc attention span has lessened, very few read books anymore and out of a class of 18, 3 can absorb fully what’s delivered to them in a one hour long class sitting!! Scary indeed!!

  51. I read somewhere a quote from Stephen Hawking says : There is a real danger that computers will develop intelligence and take over. Well, perhaps we urgently need to develop direct connections to the brain so that computers can add to human intelligence rather than be in opposition.

  52. Fhelipe de Bastos Bianca Rocha Dylan Davoodifar Adam Taj Nick Cassim Sergej Baturan I thought you guys would appreciate this article. I never cease to be stunned by the negative effects of todays foods!

    • great read! i think one interesting factor which a number of thinkers from early 20th C picked up on is that if machines did so much thinking for us, then we may lose our ability to think abstractly (to reason with logic) or lose ability to think creatively (beauty and ingenuity is defined for us and presented to us, rather than given to us in building blocks to make our own)

    • so how to counter this? I think to continue much of what we do already – enjoy reading, being creative, putting ourselves in ‘classical’ challenging situations. e.g. running and walking vs driving, mental arithmetic vs calculator, writing and drawing vs watching television.

    • i wouldn’t say it’s all bad though, the wealth of books research papers through the internet and computational tools (microsoft excel, programming languages) actually allows our inelligence and creativity to flourish in new and exciting ways,- if we use it in the right way (pursue new challenges), rather than use it to simply make things easier. the developed world provides new challenges to logistics technology culture learning etc that require new solutions never thought of before! so it’s not all bad 🙂

    • Well said man, to add to what you say, these technologies allow more of us access to creativity in many new ways. Although they also take away when you think of it, at one point we could just draw on the dirt or rocks hehe
      I love what I learn from technology, it teaches me to try to think without it, ironically haha

    • yeah thats so true!! i can spend hours just stiting at my laptop designing sounds with synthesizers and new combinations of waveforms and effects. love it 🙂 yeah i guess technology they are new kinds of creative “pallets” and yes if we use it right then it improves our minds, but if we get lazy and just churn our junk food we will get dumber :/

  53. Sometimes I think we’re all just part of a social experiment, instigated by aliens. The human race is destroying itself and the land we live on. Thankfully what goes around comes around so earth will have her day of rest.

  54. Starvation of the masses, add in all kinds and variations of chemical poisons, pack them tightly into cities, even poison the water sources they drink and VOILA! Anxious, hyper, ill, non reasoning masses… Not surprising.

  55. part of the agenda from the government, through the board of education to dumb down people 1 generation at a time, reinforced with heavy metals, and other contaminants being put into city water supplies, misrepresented as being healthy, as well as GMO foods which are watered with that same water, the pesticides, herbicides, and various other unnatural components, chemtrails, and all kinds of other things added to the environment. Cartoons that convey stupidity, and ignorance to be cool, and trendy, reduction of belief that one’s worth is merited or flawed via material gain, and prosperity, or lack thereof, not failing children in school when they’re not making the grade, so they don’t care because they know they’ll pass anyway, using personal biases, and government views to shape, and mold what children learn, vaccines riddled with potentially deadly additives, and the list goes on…all in America, How can the mass majority become anything else when they’re being poisoned from every angle without conscious knowledge of their own public figures being the foundation by which all of these things are allowed to occur?

  56. Nascent Iodine clears out the Fluoride & Bromine, heavy metals from your body and raises IQ levels 15%…..plus you can’t eat GMO’s or get vaccines, breathe in the toxins they spay into air through chem-trails, or of course drink tap water….Nascent Iodine gives a person mental clarity…you have to take other supplements for it to absorb….Google search it.

  57. Graduation wavers for high school seniors who can’t pass a standardized test? No one left behind, everyone just pushed along with their peers. One way of public education, no room for teachers to focus one how each child learns? We are each unique including the way we learn. No wonder humans are become dumber.

  58. The new e-books and e-media also instrumental
    as knowledge about people, places, and things, can we wiped clean to suit the whims and aims of religious, political, and corporate/commercial orthodoxy.
    Just as in Orwell’s NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR.
    Even if such a nefarious plan isn’t implemented by insidious men, just a repeat
    of the 1859 Carrington Event, a natural occurence, will achieve much more damage without any discrimination or selectivity as ALL will be lost, much as in the Library of Alexandria in a earlier age.

  59. It need a fresh infusion from its genetic maker , the original “humans” – historically correct, but you will not read it in any “open” publication, regressed back to barbarian status, and had to be upgraded with a new influx of white genes, also archaeological proven.

  60. Sarah Naomi TownsendSara
    Not too sure of that, I mean 6000 years ago the the population was much less, the people were very spiritual and educated in different ways. Now the population is much larger and the knowledge has been suppressed and kept secret for hundreds of years by certain few families and religions… So the percentage is much smaller now even though our masses are greater. You have a open mind so that’s great. I am never judging anyone nor do I shoot down New ideas. Give the brain power and in our numbers we have now, we will win over night…

  61. We had all the wisdom and knowledge from Chinese, Sumerian, Egyptians, The Vedas, Hindus and Shamans from every corner of the world. But it wasn’t practical or even wanted to have the masses thinking. As a matter of fact, it was outright dangerous. Work and consume, on the other hand, was the only solution. Production and consumption was the way to unimaginable riches. The rest, is history. And our reality so far.

  62. Well how about some more hormones in the food or Antibiotics in the really sick animals we eat? OH If that is not enough ? all the bugs and GMO”s or would you like some fake stuff that is so bad for you it makes more Americans sick is aspartame or some more fake things put into food to make us sick and fat!!! SO WHAT DID YOU SAY?????

  63. Uneducated, ignorant, lazy, stubborn,… the brain is more amazing then we can imagine. We forgot how to even grow food, the simplest of simple. Instead west Monsanto ruin it for eternity so that when we even do remember 1 day it won’t even matter… this is the generation of the ignorant cowards.

  64. We’re being programmed by our governments, big business, and television to be stupid sheep. Of course, we do not need to follow their plan and many of us will not but the masses are happy to eat their junk food and watch their junk media as long as they are entertained.

  65. That’s because everything is done for them! We hardly have to think through anything. I use Google and do research a lot, but that’s to learn. I don’t want to waste away on nothing.

  66. Deb Crowe:

    Re: Your road rage comment a little more than five hours ago:

    Listen gleaming feathered Blackbird:

    Blackbird, road rage by percentage of population road rage was just as prevalent when you were growing up as it is now. The difference being that no national news pundit had called attention to it or given it a name. As soon as it was given a name that had a good alliteration to it was announced every news pundit in the nation crammed all over it. What a great name they all thought “ROAD RAGE”, “R O A D. R A G E”, we’ll have the public screaming and climbing all over each other with this “one”, we’ll tie their panties in a knot, get them yelling LOUD. We’ll take hold of their imaginations and never turn them loose. Soon it won’t be just a matter of simple physical assault, we’ll push, pull on them, incite their anger toward each other until they’ll accost each other with firearms then we’ll have good people laying dead in the streets, on the highways, the Interstates. Won’t that be something? The dumb bastards will be killing each other and we will have enough news stories so that each reporter will have his own story, he/she will have a story they can own, an exclusive no other reporter will have. We will each be buried in a proliferation of death and violence. Man, oh, man, how cool will that be? Cool man cool, let’s all give each other a round of high fives, then down low. In the meantime good people are dying being killed in a manipulated fit of uncalled for rage. Rage for the stage produced by your oh so friendly nightly news pundit.

    That is how road rage became so prevalent, so popular, so purposeful. It was all orchestrated gleefully by the press to increase circulation, to add a handful or two more viewers to the television ratings, to add a couple more quarters to the bottom line, to the profit. That way each death becomes worth something, it adds value to the persons life because he/she is now a news story…legitimate front page news in BOLD TYPE HEADLINES…and too road rage and its’ perpetrators are worth something too. Mr. Perpetrator, did you mean to kill him? Or were you just trying to scare him? Were you just trying to force the young mother of four small children to apologize for cutting you off at the exit ramp and.the gun just fired all by itself without you or the passenger pulling the trigger? So what you are saying is the firearm has a mind of its’ own and it pulled its’ own trigger just to frighten everyone? The firearm wanted all people to know it is master the master of human beings, is that what you are saying? Weell, yep, that’s about it. Didn’t mean no harm.

    That, my little blackbird, is the short version of “ROAD RAGE”, soon to be playing at a theater near you. Watch the papers for time, date, and theater where it will be playing near where you live. “ROAD RAGE” orchestrated, produced, directed by a news pundit in your neiborhood, near you.

    Take care of yourself, don’t become a victim of road rage. If it looks like someone is maybe angry out there on the highway (if someone is about half way out his/her drivers’ window with a contorted facial expression shaking a fist at you he/she may be angry, they have other signs too, watch for them all, if you see a fire arm duck), fake pulling over till you see the them pull over and begin to stop, then you speed away as fast as your vehicle will go and make your get away, absquatulate, move out fast.

    Blackbird, good luck to you again, take care, with some luck I will maybe communicate with you some other time. Never can tell. Bye.

  67. Where do I begin on this one??? Ever since the end of WW2, the secret governement has made it clear that they do not want smart people, a smart person is a threat to them, and can topple any evil. Since the mid 60’s-70’s the educational system has been pulling back on what they are required to teach in schools, turning our youth into ADHD/ADD crazed little monters with all the medication being forced apon them, and if a parent does not go along with the program, the government along side of childrens aid will come along and take your children away from you and just may put you in jail as well, YOU CAN FIND MORE INFO ON YOUTUVBE,

  68. Our family has a seychelle pitcher with filter feom Jim Bakers ministry take all out and we need to eat fresh grow you’re own foods less store bought and less gmo foods brain food no immunizations

  69. It is true that corporations, governments, and many other systems are finding difficulty in evolving, adapting, and expanding to fit their consumers/public’s needs. Welcome to the information age. 🙂 This will hold true for most systems until we can sort out our entangled and rapidly growing selves. We as people must also learn patience as those same things that provided for us and allowed us to live was built on positive notions to last through the ages. Look at ourselves and in time everything will sort itself out. But know and do what is best for you and your neighbors and everything good/bad follows. — That’s all for my crazy self.

  70. no, its not, the idiots are protected from stupid death by guard rails. ”The ultimate result of shielding men from the results of folly is to fill the world with fools.“ Herbert Spencer (1820-1903)

  71. See, I disagree. I think if the internet and the television are utilized properly it can actually add to your intelligence. I mean, watching the kardashian bitches will dumb you down, but reading news from unbiased sources and watching educational programming helps.

  72. “THEY” are dumbing you down…
    The dumber you are …the easier you are to control…
    HITLER used Sodium Fluoride in all his DEATH CAMPS..
    Right now if you are reading this ,
    the most IMPORTANT thing we all need to do is Protect our BRAINS..
    We all know that our Governments are very evil…Right?
    So “THEY” are trying very hard to DUMB DOWN the people.
    HOW?
    Fluoride in almost ALL Bottled Waters and in our Tap Water, Is a very dangerous Neruotoxin. That means it destroys Brain Tissue.

    Chlorine added to drinking waters should be removed .
    Chlorine also triples the harmful effects of the poison Fluoride that is also added to our drinking waters…
    We remove all the Chlorine from our SHOWER and Drinking Waters… DO YOU?

    Plastic Drinking water bottles are made from comes from OIL !
    At 90 degrees all the Cancer Carcinogens Leach out of the plastic and into your water…
    BOTTLED WATERS ARE VERY ACIDIC…
    Cancer is a Fungus and Thrive and Grow in Acidic conditions in your body.
    So “YOU” pay to get Cancer? REALLY ?

    Mercury in all Shots and Vaccinations.. Mercury is also a Deadly Neurotoxin.

    Chemtrails Containing Dangerous Heavy Metals are being SPRAYED on us ..
    Lead , Mercury , Aluminum , Barium and Strontium LEVELS in people are alarmingly high…

    Aspartame is a Very Deadly Killer. Aspartame was developed in a Lab by a Chemical Company as a ANT & ROACH Killer.. It is so sweet and Kills so fast it works great and a Cockroach Killer..
    Aspartame is the “FECES” of a very deadly Bacteria.

    Did you know almost “ALL” Mattress are made from Oil Based Materials and are Very Toxic? Another Neurotoxin that effects your brain tissue.
    While you sleep on it they Out-Gas Deadly Toxins ! Then they spray Toxic Flame Retardants and Insect Killers on your mattress…

    GMO Crops are everywhere in our stores..
    95% of all CORN is GMO.
    95% of al Soybeans are GMO.
    95% of all Sugar Beets are GMO… That is in EVERYTHING we buy at the Grocery store.
    GMO’S are researched and are proven to Cause deadly conditions to all humans..
    And there are even more…Too Many to list here..

    All day long your Family is being bombarded by Dangerous Deadly DIRTY ELECTRICITY…
    It is in your Home , Schools and your Workplace…
    Wireless Internet , Computer Screens , Fluorescent Lights , Many Electrical Appliances , Cell Phones and Many More…..

    This dirty Electricity is linked to CANCERS like Leukemia..

    SO PROTECT YOUR BRAINS PEOPLE….
    IT IS THEY ONLY THING THEY CAN’T TAKE FROM YOU…YET!

    There are ways to protect your body from these poisons…
    WANT OUR HELP REMOVING THESE TOXINS FROM YOUR FAMILY’S LIVES ?
    ASK US… Earth Patriot

  73. CHEMICALS……. CHEMICALS ARE DESTROYING HUMANITY!!! Our air, water, soil & food supply are saturated with them. If our bodies do not have the ability to process such things through our p450 systems it can wreak havoc on our brains as well as other organs. I KNOW! Vitamin deficiencies are another one!

  74. Well I wonder why? There are so many attacks against us, Fed. Education,Vaccines, GMO’s, Poison water, chem-trails, propaganda, disinformation and on and on. Jesus is the only anchor for our souls.

  75. Underground Health:

    What “experts” say about the human brain just isn’t true. Why would you spread that nonsense on Facebook or anywhere else? If you truly believe that then you know nothing about history or human acclomishment. The human brain is getting better and better in all of its’ facets.

  76. Of course,you live in this body and you must treat it fairly…Almost everyone today eats processed foods.This definitely affects your thinking patterns and obviously your brain health,just like vegans also express how more energetic they feel after starting the diet. However,you can’t just say that human consciousness is dropping. It is in fact rising so fast,that we can’t even notice how much progress is made each day. And this can be see both within us and outside of us! Think of yourselves. Can’t you see how much more people care at the moment for becoming better versions of themselves? How much more knowledge you strive to gather daily and express to the world? Yes,there is Instability in this period of our lives,but this is simply a state we are at.Either we will make it throughit,or we will destroy ourselves!! For some of you who know about the Fibonacci and the Golden Ratio,we are beyond the Vitruvian Man of Leonardo da Vinci into the second state,which is now less close to the Golden mean,and thus we are unstable. But the real question is…will we make the leap??

  77. We invent machines to do all our thinking for us.We want instant gratification and if we don’t get it we throw temper tantrums,rob and even kill.We are devolving . We find pleasure from killing people. Animals are better than humans,they never kill for pleasure. We are poor and unstable.

  78. really…i would never have thought!!! You just have to look at everything in the world to know that…movies , music and non talented reality tv stars who are famous for doing ABSOLUTELY FUCK ALL!!!!

  79. that’s what happens when you are being poisoned everyday via CHEMTRAILS,VACCINES . DENTAL MERCURY FILLING ,.. GMO FOODS AND WHAT EVER OTHER TOXINS THE GOVERNMENTS ALLOW CORPORATIONS TO DUMP!

  80. Absolutely. Chemicals, dependence on technology are biggies. You can’t watch the evening news on ABC, NBC or CBS w/o 15 minutes of drug commercials. “If you think you may have x, then ask your doctor if __ if right for you.”

  81. If you don’t use it, you lose it. So many people don’t like for themselves anymore. They prescribe to some dogma that feeds them what to think/believe whether is be a secular or religious agenda. We are slowly becoming sheeple,

  82. Well duh, our water is fluoridated… That’s a neurotoxin right there. As well as the majority of people eating garbage (I used to be one of them), which is nutrition depleted, as well as many other factors…

  83. Susan patrie sand Eric loch I absolutely agree. And some of these comments are like “wow you actually typed that, reread it, and still posted?” oh and ppl stop letting the damn tv social outlets raise your damn kids. Stupid ppl are also way easier to control on a massive level. As are ppl who rely 100% on the govt for everything.. Food, housing.. Etc..

  84. JS Willis are you jealous that I may be smarter than you because I am of two races? Are you too coward to admit it? Let me compare the single race human to a dog. (I better tell you that I am using an analogy…not saying single race people are dogs)…anyhow…compare a purebred dog to a mixed dog. In your mind you would call it a Mutt. The purebred dog is not as smart as the mixed race dog. Do your homework…Google will have your answer…or better yet…you can use Wikipedia…since you are able to change the answers there…once you come to realize the lesson at hand, you may want to change the answer to benefit your world. Now I am not saying a single race human is dumb…but I am saying that in you have walked in the shoes of a person who lives in the skin of more than one race…you have no idea what our brain brains at capable of. Oh yeah…by the way…welcome to the 21st century. Get over yourself and your racism! P.S. look down your family line…your not as “pure” as you assume. You have Blacks in your line! And remember…not everyone with African descent are brown skinned…oh no! What….there are white African Americans? What would have known…wow…Get a clue!

  85. The fact that you are using a social network such as this one, using technology and computers to replace your brain…is the exact reason the human species is digressing back to the caveman. I cannot believe people are stating to not blame humans or the lack of vitamins…seriously…wake up and smell the damn roses….oh that’s right….you don’t know how to grow roses…better Google it!

  86. if true, then that is Gov’t and corporate greed, up to both to fix it, or The Hunger Games scenario will become reality; if we as a whole don’t believe they are capable then we should make them at the ballot box, or revolutionise change. OR just keep playing those Xboxs etc while eating more fruit

  87. I don’t need some fancy smansy doctor telling me this…….The children are TOOOO connected. Doesn’t take a scientist to figure that shit. You wanna come up with something good? Think of a way to stop it. AND good luck.

  88. no shit. turn off the power, including the internet and watch the insanity. we’ve allowed technology to do the work for us, obviously next logical step is to have it “think” for us. until there’s no more use for us but to drop dead.

  89. Seems like science will flip flop like a politician on this issue. I just think if our environment encourages intellectual properties as dominant then those traits will be passed down. Just me tho…

  90. ALL THESE COMMENTS PROVE THAT NOT EVERYONE IS GETTING DUMBER. thankfully, more and more people are becoming aware of all the poison the “sheep” are being fed to their mind, body, and spirit.

  91. I think this is highly debatable, being emotionally unstable does not mean a person is dumb, and in the past serfs, peasants, etc were definitely not encouraged to think for themselves, even if they had the time. I know we eat a lot of junk and also are bombarded with loads of drivel, but come on undergroundhealth do you have to be so negative about everything? If this world is so awful how come we are all living longer and there is such a population explosion. How many people of your parents/grandparents generation lost children to polio, whooping cough, diptheria???

  92. Actually you could make the argument that many governments create a selection pressure for stupidity, because people that challenge the norm with interesting thoughts are silenced, suppressed and in some cases killed.

  93. Human intelligence is declining because their is no selection pressure for intelligence in our lives. Even the dumbest most incapable person can have offspring these days that survive and reproduce. Evolution needs selection pressure to proceed

  94. No, actually, it doesn’t surprise me. When we look at everything that’s happening in the world for the last 3 decades or so, we seem to see worse and worse outcomes on every level; individual, municipal, state/province, country and globally. Food is totally degraded, education is downgraded, violence seems to be the answer for everything. I think the human race has definitely regressed!

  95. Given the crap people eat, is it so surprising? We do not have access to a lot of resources, yet we eat fairly well – we grow some of our own, we buy local and organic veggies and what meat/poulty we do eat is from sources we are familiar with that pasture their animals and grass feed them/free range and what fish we do eat is wild caught – because of expense we don’t eat a lot of fish; although DH does some fishing, which we eat and/or freeze for later use. We stopped eating factory farmed (CAFO) foods produced in horrific, cruel conditions and eat very little packaged food; what packaged food we do eat we scrutinize the labels as we do not want to eat gmo anything. Yes, we eat less nowadays, but that is just fine.

  96. Perfect example, only the stupid people are breeding in this day and age. The intelligent can look at our current state in America and not procreate out of responsibility. Call me a commi but I really wouldn’t mind if we followed China and gave everyone a two kid limit. I mean, when are people simply told no, it is a huge burden on the responsible

    • I’ve been listening to metal my whole life. I’m 46 now and would take a bullet for you DESPITE your prejudice to my musical tastes. ALL bands play it for the money. There are very few bands that have “made it” that are still purely about the music.

  98. Man is the only animal that sends the fittest and the smartest to war to die!!! Leaving the dumb and lazy home to multiply!!!! Smart people have 0-1-2 children (that’s what they can afford), the rest multiply like rabbits (welfare pays more for each additional child)!!!!!
