Not just intellectual, physical too..


Humanity has peaked and it's all downhill from here, says study.

A multi-disciplinary team led by physician Jean-François Toussaint from Paris Descartes University has conducted a review of over 160 studies stretching back 120 years. This research looked into longevity, how well humans can perform athletically, height trends over time, and the environment.

What the review has concluded is that lifespan, physical performance, and height - which were steadily rising throughout the 20th century - have plateaued over the last three decades, since around 1980.

"These traits no longer increase, despite further continuous nutritional, medical, and scientific progress," Toussaint said. "This suggests that modern societies have allowed our species to reach its limits."

too bad Hitler got a bad name by taking Eugenics too far in creating a master race, because now we have a mess.

EUGENICS was outlawed in the 1930's... still some persisted until the 1940's but the purpose of Eugenics was selective breeding to increase the population's intelligence and prime DNA.
 Quoting: MissCleo


BS, it was racist at it's core, all clocked in the pervasive liberal myth of "it's for the greater good"
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 71661743


American eugenics didn't target blacks. Contrary, it targeted mentally and physically ill white people, a lot of the Irish and Russians who were immigrating at the time.

During the Civil War many blacks were cherished for their help on farms, blacks were essential. So much misconception today because of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960 creating myths about American history.

In America there hasn't been a genocide against blacks... ever.

 Quoting: Sungaze_At_Dawn

That's simple minded, mean, and just not true. There is NO place where that is the case. There are many places, even in the US, where people don't get a chance to develop intellectual skills, but given a chance we do see great mathematicians coming from India, Africa, South America, actually there is no population anywhere on Earth that is statistically less intelligent especially when it comes to surviving and developing skills to survive. I would have died an early death in many parts of the globe unless I learned how to survive there.
The problem you have is that many of these refugees are smarter than you are because they survived an epic journey and they become a successes when given the opportunity while your tired "sophisticated" genome is about to become extinct, and that has you scared.

The low IQ coloreds are out of control in their breeding. Now they're invading all formerly White countries. I see a bleak future. Maybe this happens over and over and our science and society is destroyed by ape people, leaving only small pockets of intelligence to rebuild civilization.

I believe 1967 was our intellectual peak. That was the end of classical human education and culture. 1968 was the start of the decline of western society and we've been going downhill ever since. While technically we may be "richer" than in 1967, other than a few trinkets and gadgets we have today our lives are but a caricature of our former human eminence.
 Quoting: Vigilant Guardian 74520468

1967 is when libtardism began kicking in.

The war on the nuclear family. "free" love.

The welfare state expanded. This enabled low class people to multiply more than anything else.

World War I and World War II were carefully orchestrated plots by the ruling class to wipe out the smartest working people. War removes the bravest most alpha middle class males from the gene pool, but most rich people are exempt from serving in harm's way.

It's all intentional. The rulers still have high IQs, but the working and middle class have been dumbed down.

"Technology may be getting smarter, but humans are getting dumber, scientists have warned.
...
Some have even contentiously said this could be because educated people are deciding to have fewer children, so that subsequent generations are largely made up of less intelligent people."

[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

It's sad how the PC culture is trying to bury the evident reason for the decline, because it doesn't fit their "everyone's equal" doctrine. Of course, it is about smart and highly educated people choosing not to have kids.

I am a smart and highly educated person (PhD + professorship). I was also dead set against having children ever. I used to sugarcoat it by citing moral reasons ("the world's such a clusterfuck that it'd be immoral to have kids"), but my true reason was:

"I've spent two decades working 70 h weeks and sacrificed everything in my life - including my social life and health - to advance my career. There's no way in hell I am going to throw it all away by having kids."

Then I fell in love, got married and got shafted at work because I couldn't put in the hours like before. I was torn between my obligations at home and those at work, and conseqeuently I burned out and my priorities shifted. I downshifted at work and we had a child. I was 45, my wife was 37. At our age it was touch-and-go, but eventually my wife gave birth to a healthy child.

Anyway, the point of my little story is that most people like me will either choose not to have kids or they'll postpone it until it's way too late. Had I not burned out, my marriage would have ended up in a divorce, because that's how hell-bent I was on my career. While recovering from the burn-out, I had time to think about life and how there must be something else than work to it. The realization that I was destroying myself and causing grief to my wife who truly loved me really woke me up, but most people like me will never wake up.
