Is this what people in the future will look like.

If they looked at a picture of modern homo sapiens, would they find them repulsive just like how we find our ancestors disgusting?

Will they look at the size of our head and disgusted, just like how we are disgusted of our ancestors brain size?

Wouldn't increasing intelligence cause problems? Would bigger heads cause a lot of problems?

Why would people nowadays be less intelligent aren't we storing more information in our brains?

From all the media, why would we be less intelligent?

Why would our education and knowledge of world that increases daily make us dumber than people 2000 years ago.

No.

The Dysgenic effect is that the more wealthy and more intelligent population has less offspring. The dumber and poorer the population, the less kids. Well that is the belief, so intelligence becomes less common.

Like today, I was at work and saw this blonde woman, with 5 nigger children and she could not count properly. Then I saw another man (something related to electronics because he saw I was designing a micro FM transmitter when I had no customers to deal with) had 3 little red head girls.

So, I guess we need to prepare for a world of stupid people to come.

Intelligent? More media, more data flowing around us doesn't make us more intelligent. It might do the opposite, if it discourages us from having to create our own thoughts.

Who said anything about 2000 years ago?
Couldn't that reference be to people from a decade ago?

That humanity learns more overall doesn't ever mean that the knowledge of individuals has gone up. Yes, humanity knows more than they ever have. No, that doesn't mean individual people get smarter every time a single scientist learns something.

1) Natural selection is no longer the strongest likely driving force to human development in the future. It will be in our control and therefore you'll look like anything you want.

2) All of this will have happened much before the problems of over reproducing niggers can affect our technological development. Our technological development is becoming vastly more complex and powerful, so if there's anything to be worried about it's technology being too powerful for a planet of this size.

I think the basic knowledge of any individual now is more than people a 50 years ago (in a good country)

I don't think its fair to compare it to 10 years ago because that's no long enough ago

Yeah, thats pretty true. If you have ever read aldous huxley's Brave New World, the people have endless information available to them. But it is covered in crap. Constant brainwashing crap and lies.

Seems Huxley was very correct. He predicted where the world was going, much better than orwell.

Sure... but not all of them... just like there are some furries attracted to apes and fantasize about interspecies sexual intercourse


>Will they look at the size of our head and disgusted, just like how we are disgusted of our ancestors brain size?

No one is disgusted by our ancestor's brain size... I bet they would be fascinated by us

>Wouldn't increasing intelligence cause problems?

No, none whatsoever, it would make life better.

>Would bigger heads cause a lot of problems?

Yes, during birth. Unless the female's pelvis also grew larger. Also, for the head and the brain to get larger, the rest of the body would have to be larger as well

this was a problem for our ancestors as well. as intelligence pushed up the brain size, evolution stepped to keep us from waddling too much out in the grassland by completly rewiring our brains 10k years ago and evolving us from Homo Sapiens to Homo Sapiens Sapiens ( modern man )

You got it. Or entanglement posting wouldn't be nearly so popular as it is.

>>No, he should be slightly tanned and have slightly slanted eyes.

It's true that as a rule you can't tell the ethnic background of anyone just by looking, but that's due to reprogenetics, not the gradual merging of all ethnicities predicted around the turn of the century. Everyone has considerable choice as to what traits their offspring will have. You see some odd mixtures (east asian facial structure, blonde hair with african texture, etc.) but for the most part people reflect their parents' notion of the genetic ideal.
