    Humans Still Evolving As Our Brains Shrink...Sickle Cell/Lactose Tolerant

    "As to why is it shrinking, perhaps in big societies, as opposed to hunter-gatherer lifestyles,we can rely on other people for more things, can specialize our behavior to a greater extent, and maybe not need our brains as much," he added

    "Although sickle cell is best known in Africa, there is also an India-Pakistan variant of it that seems to have evolved separately," Hawks explained. "Both variants have evolved very recently, in the last three or four thousand years, and in that time have risen to as much as 10 to 15 percent of the populations. That's pretty rapid change

    Interesting. But from what I read most of the scientists involved in intelligence research (and these two are linked) who state an opinion about this say that intelligence is dropping because stupid people reproduce more then smart people.

    Combined with the fact that more of them survive in to reproductive age thanks to work done by the smart people and you have a more likely explanation than what is stated in this article.

    brain sizes shrink and average I.Q.s go down, crime goes up etc. and people call eugenics a "psuedo-science" hmm. All of society will collapse once it reaches a threshold. Most of our citizens today come from primitive tribes whose grandparents were wondering around naked with crude stick tools trying to find bugs to eat. We bring them into our society and give them the best education's imaginable and they still can barely read or write. We then blame ourselves for being "racist" when this happens. Then we throw them out into society where they can't take care of themselves so we again blame ourselves for being too racist and not tolerant enough and throw them a welfare check. What's going to happen when the majority of society are modern primitives who are incapable of taking care of themselves or running a civilized soceiety?

    Then with whites again our most degenerate, defective and lowest people are the ones that breed. lol
