Hello there guys!
I have been thinking about a subject for a while now, as the headline says, the future of the human race. Maybe this is the wrong kind of forum to discuss such a dilema, but I would like to read somebody elses opinions about the issue. So I decided to share this with you.
First of all I have to say that this is not some kind of fascism blog. I am not saying that we should exterminate the weak. I just have to make that clear before I start writing about the actual dilema, as a lot of people start flaming before they have read all of it.So, with that said, lets start.
For thousands of years the people with the best genes has survived, and the ones with the worst genes died. That is how the nature work, "survivale of the fittest" as Charles Darwin named it.
There has always been children who didn't make it. The weakest succumbed by different diseases, while the strongest survived. Yes, it was really sad that the kid died, but that is just how it works. Diseases have a purpose, make the species able to live on for generations, have the ability to resist all kind of infections, virus, bacterias and so on...
So what is the problem? It is the modern medicine that has created the issue. By saving the individuals that that under normal circumstances would have died we put the natural selection out of commission. In the long run this could weaken the resistance of the human race to certain kinds of diseases.
Could this be what in the end will eliminate the entire human race? Could the will to live in the end be what's killing us? This wont happend in our life span, still in hundreds of years this could be a problem. I just find this really interesting, feel free to share your opinion!
Just to point it out there again, I do not think we should kill anybody that has weaker genes thank ourself. I just find the topic interesting, there is not so much to do about the issue thought.
