We haven't become any dumber. The general population just seems stupider because, unlike in the past, the middle school dropout next door can broadcast his opinions across the world because he knows how to make "a blogz" (which anyone can make nowadays, because technology has make the process so much easer)

Apply this logic to other forms of communication.

No more weapon physics specialist, chemist specialist or any occupation that go to do with weapons of mass destruction......All these requires great intelligence in physics and chemistry which is quite tough once you get deeper in those field...

Everyday, new weapons are being developed to fight what!?Aren't todays weapon enough destructive?
Aliens!? Nope!!
HUMANS!!

But by the way, today's technology are taking us, I doubt we are actually becoming stupider...We are actually becoming smarter and more cunning....



i believe everyoen on this forum just got a bit stupider for that post. you are now in my top ten list of stupid people right behind mormons and scientologists

seriously im afraid of the future. ive seen how stupid some of my freinds are and its teriffying, (says the girl who cant spell) and its not just a decresing in intelligence but also a devalueing of it and a lack of intrest in well anything out side their own lives. course i am a bit of a hipacrite so i dont really know how much my opinon is worth, lol.

In a way I think we are losing intelligience.....Kids just refuse to work or care about school.."So I dont need to learn this! This has nothing to do with me." and then they just dont care. My class is like that...Alot of kids would rather get in trouble and sent out of class so they dont have to learn or listen to the teacher..*shakes head* Its mainly the kids though. Adults on the other hand...some are smart and some arent.

yeah agreed. today's generation are generalist not specialists. People a century or 10 years ago were trained differently from today like for example the method of teaching a lesson is letting the student memorize word for word but today we just have to look for keywords and analyze what we read. A lot of problems now a days aren't supposed to be blamed by those singing idols, media, and many more because what the individual chooses to be like is his choice, if he doesn't like to read and study then we have no right to tell him that he should stop what he's doing and study.. what I'm trying to say is we shouldn't blame the media, technology, and others because in the end they're much help to us.

I am actually glad that my posts makes everyone a bit stupider if that is what you CLAIMED....This thread is evidently unclear as it does not defined a clear line of cut between intelligence and education...as delicately explained by MidnightZorya...A blur thread deserves a stupid answer...I am too lazy to actually give a logical and profound answer...cause other people WILL do the explanation for you....

A response just like I wanted....
It be no fun if people keep on agreeing with your opinion....
Congratulatons....!!

this is eveident by the medias shown... movies... song writing... and this forums are also evidence of the young generations that they are losing intelligence...

i have noticed this for a long time... our generation compared to the past generations is definitely losing its intelligence on my opinion...

what do you think? have you noticed this too?



Yes, these forums all by themselves show that younger generations are loosing the capacity for creative thought. (in some cases, like the united states, I blame it on the educational system - which wants people to be stupid and go long with whatever is spoon fed to them on the news)



ah! conspericy theories arent they wonderful?! lol, i truly think the public school system is aiming to destroy individual thought, and destroy any posibility of the population questioning the government's actions. i refuse to become a mindless trend zombie!!!!!

yes. last year, we were learning about WWII and hitler.
my teacher also taught 6th graders @ that time, and when she asked them if they knew who adolf hitler was,
only 3 or so ppl knew.
she also asked them if they knew about 9/11.
many of them were also clueless.
"9/11? you silly. it's 7-11!"

Actually, I think we're getting smarter. People 50 years ago started learning Geometry in 10th Grade, and look at us now! Some of us are even starting to learn Geometry in 8th Grade! We have also advanced somewhat from generation to generation, from the prehistoric age when man had just learned how to make fire, to electric heaters.
