Is humanity getting dumber over time?
Heading straight for Costco and the Idiocracy.
Stupid is as stupid does!
I believe there are larger number of Americans these days who think it is cool to be dumb or gullible. Although, they don't think they are. Those people are the ones that believed even one of the many lies the POTUS spit out of his mouth.
Copy & paste is what students need nowadays or they'd be screwed but yet their grandparents graduated just fine without wiki.
Technology is so advanced & soon it'll do all the thinking for us
I predict H.G. Wells results in our future.
Yes at a shocking pace
Look at the ancient monuments of stone which we have neither the ability, nor the know-how to move. Someone in the past was obviously smarter and/or more technically advanced than we are today.
Humans not humanity.
Yes. It was harder to survive in the past. Only the fittest and smartest survived. Don't have to be fit or smart to survive and reproduce today.
As technology increases, human wisdom will decline.
No, but the average person is less educated. If you look at speeches and high school tests a hundred years ago, most people who graduated a four year college would not pass.
Not humanity, just the US. #merica
no I think humanity as a collective is definitely getting smarter. but keep in mind, that's 7 billion people. its hard to make a generalization of such a huge number. We're advancing technology quicker than ever, and have learned quite a bit about
the world around us in a comparatively short time in regards to overall human history.
Larger groups eliminate the need for independent intelligent.
Yes. Its obvious and everywhere.
I'm afraid Idiocracy is becoming close to non-fiction.
I was thinking the same thing!
no. i do think we tend to overthink things now more than in the past though
See my last poll!
Dumb is a necessary minor in today's college
Most people are pretty dumb but no, we are actually getting smarter
