also we aren't evolving much anymore due to safety and technology
survival of the race is irrelevant. only the individual matters.
I don't really know enough of diseases or the human immune system to say anything, but it's an interesting view on things.
I have been more worried by what I see as total lack of mental growth during the last few thousand years. There is no doubt that humans have more knowledge these days than they had before in terms of understanding how the universe around us works. This has allowed people to develop all kinds of powerful technologies that have the potential to greatly benefit our lives.
The problem is that the wisdom of people hasn't grown a single bit in my opinion. The greed and the instinct to fight against your enemies instead of trying to understand each other is still there as strong as before, even if they become apparent in different ways these days. The difference is that with all the intellectual development, some people suddenly have much more responsibility on their shoulders than their wisdom should allow.
I still am somewhat afraid that the human race will destroy itself before things like those you said can even take their toll.
Thats correct. The way i see it is:
Instead of making ourselves stronger by not using medicines and thus increasing the resistance power of our bodies, we are making the bacterias and viruses stronger by making them adapt against stronger and stronger medicines. Soon a day will come when all the harmful bacterias will be resistant to all kinds of medicines on earth. Scary.
As the diseases,viruses and bacterias grow stronger,so will the human medicine and science.It may just happened for some biological enemy of ours to beat us all,but I don't see that happening in some time.So as much as our biological enemy gets stronger,so do we and maybe with a higher rate.I must add I agree on what #5 said.
Here is the only real argument i can come to from your blog: People with weak genetics living is bad because people with strong genetics might mate with them instead of other people with strong genetics, leading to weaker offspring. Othervise it makes no difference that there are people with weaker genetics. This might mean that in the long run there are less people with "really strong genetics" but only by a few percent.
Anyway, no disease can wipe off the whole race, even if it killed people instantly if at any form of contact there would be plenty of people alive who would be able to isolate themselves and mate and live happily etc
Not only medicine, but also capitalism saves "bad" genes. Just imagine a fat fuck, with zero intelligence, antisocial with chronic diseases. He will still get the hottest chic if he's rich.
I'm more afraid of the population becoming too big.
we will born with a steam account instead of a identity document
Everyone has the right to live since that's why he/she's been born. The modern medicine is a bonus for us. So what if the population is growing? "Exterminating" ourselves isn't a solution, though we act like barbarians with the animals nowadays. There are so many planets outside the Universe waiting for us.
Anyway, my opinion is that the higher ranked people outside the world will find a solution to this by making "wars" so they can have a cover on their ass, if you know what I mean. But there are also those people who will make new viruses so they will let people die before "making" those drugs to save the others.
So you're denying the necessity of progress? Do you realize that all material/non material goods you have were created/invented by people whose health was far from ideal?
Back to the stone age, when all depended on physical strength?
Human being that was evolved to live in harmony with nature as all beings live,turned through years and became parasite of Earth. Nature is wise and will deal this slip one day.
If the evolution continued like that, in the future we would be all black guys with a big dick and stupid as fuck.
I agree with Pus, population is becoming too big, so I have an ideia!! We must kill all habitants of Africa, so Africa only have animals, we could shoot some atomic bombs into China, so we can exterminate them, also India.
The rest of the world could live, atleast for now. ;)
human race is abomination and curse of planet earth.
the faster we destroy each other the better it will be.
i think only people with iq over 110 and good health should be allowed to procreate :D we would get fast results in only 2-3 generations.
Medicine helps the weak but does not change one from weak to strong. Unhealthy means less chances in competing with others in life, girls would not choose a weak either. While healthy ppl hanging out there digging for money and girls, you're happy to chew your medicine --> loser.
The future of human race.. prob destroy ourselves before the earth.
imo the future of the human race seems robotic like for western society. we will spend our entire lives working and paying back debt we owe banks, eating and consuming food that is harmful for our health, and brain washing ourselves with television. The only way for us to evolve as a race is to all live as one, where no one is less equal to another.
+1 charlieadam :). Buddism is really good solution right there in my humble opinion.
Knock knock Neo...welcome to the real world...
oh men, you explained the Charles Darwin theory better than my Biology teacher :')
"survivale of the fittest" AS MOBB DEEP NAMED MUFUCKA
you're on the right way. Just swap physical strength with intelligence. You'll come to the right conclusions, I believe. I'm glad to see that SOME people get the nature of the problem intuitively. PM me if you wish to discuss it further :) I don't feel like starting a flame war and my views (while not racist in any way) will definitely start one.
after all, the inevitable future is extintion
