After the talk of natural selection and those brown recluse spiders, I got to thinking about humans, and, does anyone think natural selection is becoming extinct in humans?
I mean, think about it, with animals, if you’re too slow or too dumb, you’re dead. With humans, if you’re too slow you get a personal trainer to get you fit or you give up and move around in a powered scooter thing. If you’re too dumb, you go to special schools and get special help to bring you up to speed. I mean, it’s good in so many senses, but at the same time it gives some people an excuse to just stop trying and take the easy route.
“Hmm… I can get off my ass and work of this winter fat… OR… I can sit here and watch Maury, eat Oreos, and order a scooter so I can move myself around town when my leg muscles disappear.”
With this, these people are going to reproduce and infect their children with the same slack-ass mentality, feed them fast food, and overpopulate the world with slobs. And when these slobs get super fat and their bodies start to shut down, they go to a hospital and get fixed up with new technology before going home and smoking a pack of cigarettes and start going downhill again.
Of course, there are the active and/or smart humans who do good for their communities, regions, provinces/states, countries, and the world and these represent the other half of the population (and I can say for the most part people on here are pretty damn smart), but that’s not that much of the population.
Has this ever crossed anyone elses mind?
