On The Way Home To Earth
Two millennia ago people were using computers to track astronomical movements, they invented underwater concrete so they could create seaports where none existed, they created aqueducts with slopes of 1” to every 10’ to carry water hundreds of miles to supply their cities with fresh water, they built bridges, roads, auditoriums, and arenas that are still in use today, they built giant arched and domed buildings that not only baffle us today on how they built it, but still stand despite centuries of earthquakes.

Today in 2021 we think people can control the weather, people can change sex on a whim, there’s no difference between male and female, socialism works if done right next time, buildings and stadiums are torn down because they’re falling apart after 40 years, most people today have no clue where basic needs come from outside of a store they totally rely upon.


Do not confuse intelligence with knowledge. Or knowledge with wisdom. People today may have a smart phone but can’t even figure out how to tighten the loose bolt on the garage door without being told how to do it. People today may know they can dress little boys up as girls and send them out in public that way, but have no concept about how unwise they are.

And it’s not just my observation:

I’ve wondered for years if humanity is getting dumber——— one look at the world might make you wonder so. People used to be highly dependent on themselves— reasoning and perception, for their survival, now, the average person can’t conduct their simple daily affairs without carrying a miniature computer with them complete with internet and phone access in order to bring with them a knowledge base and people to turn to for assistance.

People today are more EDUCATED, but are they smarter? It would seem that today, people are more TRAINED to be highly specialized in some very small niche field and may have great knowledge and skill within that small domain yet lack basic understanding of huge areas in everyday life.

I’m always reminded of the story of the professor who taught theory of carburetion yet couldn’t FIND the carburetor on a car motor to save his life.

Most people today know little or nothing of basic skills needed to fix a car, take care of a house (hire people instead), fix things, hunt for food, survive in the wild, live without electricity, make things, come up with creative solutions to normal problems, don’t know their history, have a poor grasp of the world, poor science and math skills, and have little or no understanding of the universe around them off the surface of the Earth (I was once asked whether the Moon or the Sun was closer).

Well, in only 5 years, Donald J Trump managed to lower the average Republican IQ in this country by 30 points. ;)
Tell us more how humans can change sex on a whim.
How have transgenders affected your life? I know already - Not a whit!
Instead of asking me you should ask the women and children sexually assaulted in restrooms and those fired for calling a guy in a dress he.
Oh yes - The bathroom assaults. Despite your incessant claims, they are rarer than hen's teeth.
And truth be told, you have it exactly upside down.

(Reuters Health) - Transgender adolescents may be less likely to be sexually assaulted when they can use school bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity rather than their sex assigned at birth, a U.S. survey suggests.​
The survey of 3,673 trans and nonbinary teens in American middle schools and high schools found that more than one in four reported being sexually assaulted in the previous 12 months.​
When schools required students to use bathrooms and locker rooms based on their sex assigned at birth, transgender boys - who identify as male but are labeled female on their birth certificates - were 26 percent more likely to experience sexual assault.​
And transgender girls - who identify as female but were assigned male at birth - had more than twice the assault risk when they had to use restrooms and locker rooms for boys.​

No shock you justify thinking humans can change sex on a whim and the mentally ill sexually assaulting children.

Again, your "facts" suck. The only instance I've heard about was a straight guy who dressed like a woman in order to creep around women's bathrooms.
Probably a Rump voter! ;)

Humans are getting smarter in general with more education. It's this board that's getting dumber by the minute.
Knowledge and intelligence are not the same thing just as ignorance and stupidity are not the same thing.

The right wing obsession with transgendered individuals is weird.

I guess you guys had to do something since it’s no longer cool to hate on gay individuals.

Hilarious how the Left jumps in defending their call for mentally ill people to be called normal.
