Less “informed” would be a better word.

Tuesday of last week was proof positive of this thesis.

You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude, so that's what you call me. Or maybe His Dudeness, or Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

Don't do it!

Only due to overpopulation in the third world.

The trend in developed nations is upwards in IQ every year.

This is largely due to better nutrition and less childhood disease leading to larger and smarter people on average.

In the USA the trend is upwards.

The last “election” here in this country is proof of that.

Of course, humans are becoming less intelligent. And they join the democrat party. Conservatives aren’t getting more intelligent either. That’s why RINOs get elected and nominated.

Two potential trends which deserve consideration:

1) The gene pool becomes shallower as the survival value of intelligence is diluted by communal support for the incompetent, who unfortunately are rather fertile.

2)The new genetics explores the "turning on and off" of genes according to adaptive requirements in the environment. This neo-Lamarckianism offers the promise that novel intellectual challenges, specifically based on the burgeoning of digital technology, may activate and energize genetic capacities unknown to previous generations.

The possibility exists that the next generation or two may interact and relate to their world in ways very different than what we understand today. The proliferation of the digital age will likely have consequences for cognitive development that are essentially unforeseeable, and may make current understandings of intelligence obsolete.

I’ve seen evidence that as the density of habitation increases, the intelligence level goes down

It certainly explains the results of the last 2 presidential elections... Obamba is a master of the Jedi Mind Trick against those weak minded fools!

As soon as I put down my stone axe and traded my bark canoe for a Denali, I have felt so much less clever. /s

Obviously, people in the bush are so much smarter than we are. Even though that is not reflected in standardized tests, the tests are wrong.

All this means is the OBAMABOTS are taking over. As you all know, we are too stupid to understand his magnificence and superior intelligence.

Conversation on a zerohedge thread...

Water Is Wet(poster), “E’ERY BODY IN CLE’LAND GOT OBAMAPHONE!”

cnmcdee (poster), “LMAO but we have created a new subset language consisting of tonal clicks, pops, hyphenated abbreviations and digitized text messages....

:-)

In three or four generations the vocal cords of the texters should be atrophied enough that they can no longer speak, and when they do it will be primal utterances and inflections...”

So we should be devolving back to apehood soon.

Study claims humans are becoming less intelligent

You don't say.

What you don’t use, you lose.

And, 47% of the populace doesn’t need to use their brains.

nonsense, of course. Because the most common cause of low intelligence is not genes but protein malnutrition. The same high protein high fat diet that makes us fat also allows our children’s brains to grow and their bodies to be taller than their ancestors.
