That article, I will bet dollars to donuts is a BS click bait piece..Sorry, but this sounds a lot like pseudo science.... Basically when any 2 people have kids, it is a lottery..... Kids could be "better" or "worse" than their parents in any number of traits.....
For example, one indicator that kids do not necessarily get better is the declining IQ issue
An intelligence crisis could undermine our problem-solving capacities and dim the prospects of the global economy.www.nbcnews.com
People are getting dumber. That's not a judgment; it's a global fact. In a host of leading nations, IQ scores have started to decline.
These days, however, Flynn himself concedes that "the IQ gains of the 20th century have faltered." A range of studies using a variety of well-established IQ tests and metrics have found declining scores across Scandinavia, Britain, Germany, France and Australia.
Details vary from study to study and from place to place given the available data. IQ shortfalls in Norway and Denmark appear in longstanding tests of military conscripts, whereas information about France is based on a smaller sample and a different test. But the broad pattern has become clearer: Beginning around the turn of the 21st century, many of the most economically advanced nations began experiencing some kind of decline in IQ.
I didn’t read the whole thing yet, but have seen MANY things pointing out that for decades they have had to scale up the IQ test every year.
Someone who scored a 100, 25 years ago wouldn’t get an 85 today..
I’m gonna read the article when I have a few and I’m betting it is hyping the results from only a couple years..
100 years ago no one on planet earth knew Pluto existed... they didn’t know viruses or bacteria existed..
Every kindergartener does today..
All of the vast combined knowledge of humanity is at our fingertips (smart phones) and we can all communicate to share ideas...
Thee is only one biblical prophecy that I find profound..
The Tower of Babel fable.
I find it just insane that someone from that era was smart enough to foresee that if language and distance were not an issue. There is nothing humanity could not accomplish.
