    It is a given that stupidity has been observed in the animal kingdom and most reasonable people accept that by and large morons, both human and animal, are born that way. That is to say their attraction to their own idiocy is neither a choice, nor is it a product of their environment. I've also heard many people suggest that it's a natural mechanism for keeping populations in check. Personally, I think this is a very reasonable hypothesis. And that's what led me to ask the philosophical question, should stupid people procreate? If it truly is nature's population control mechanism, then isn't that just another way of nature saying this is the end of the line for this genetic combination? Of course we know that existing technology enables us to circumvent nature's intent in this case, but just because we can, does that make it a good idea?

    Stupidity is more about upbringing than about Genes, however, stupid people have high odds at messing up with the incredibly important early childhood part.

    If stupid people were not allowed to procreate there would be no Republicans so I say take all the stupid people in America, put them on an uninhabited island in Alaska and nuke the fuckers.

    Is it more about upbringing? I'm not convinced. Have you ever noticed that in families with more than one child there is almost always a difference in intelligence level. Take the Bushes, for example. Jeb seems quite intelligent while George seems barely coherent.

    I don't mean to pick on them, they are just an easily recognizable example.

    This statement makes no sense at all. :cuckoo:


    I've never heard anyone say this. Link?



    Existing technology??? You mean like sticking a cock in a dumb broad's ****?? Newsflash: That doesn't require any use of technology whatsoever and it certainly ain't circumventing nature's intent.


    In other words...Wow! Just Wow!

    REALLY? You cannot see the idiot's attraction to idiocy?




    Um, genocide, bombing other countries for no reason, bailing out the rich and leaving the poor to die...need more?





    Way to get my thread booted to the flame zone.

    Ohh great enlightened one, you do realize that you are talking about 50% of the US. You know that group that grows your food, builds your houses and most likely runs your military. Hey we cant all be as "smart" as you great wonderful liberals that think anyone that doesn't think "just like you' must some how be inferior and uneducated. Why is that????

    Yes, genocide is natural. As rational humans it's our duty to reject it.
