Hunt->Eat->Sex->Sleep->Repeat.

That'd be a pretty nice simple life.


How interesting! So you hate stupid people? What you said is completely ignorant. If there was no intelligence that doesn't mean all we would do is hunt - eat - have sex - sleep and then repeat the process. It means we would all die.

How would we know how to hunt? Humans are not like predatory animals we aren't naturally equipped for hunting, through innovation and invention hunting tools have to be created you know hence the Palaeolithic, when stone tools were created.... Humans are more likely to find food through foraging, but since we'd all be stupid when one of us ate something poisonous and dropped dead no one would think "oh no better not eat that." So eventually we would repeat the stupid action of eating poisonous vegetation and die.

Not to mention since we'd be dumber then animals we wouldn't know how to store away food for non productive times and so some of our population, the young, old and weak would probably die off. The weather would be another factor since now we would be too dumb to make clothes or shelter.

I however agree with you. Intelligence is the root of many evils. For example intelligence lead to the invention of the internet and the creation of this website which in turn gave you the opportunity to make a really stupid comment. Surely it would be better to eradicate stupidity.

Evil Intent. Weapons aren't bad unless a person uses them for evil, there are times were I would like to have a gun, i.e. if a crazed animal would be attacking me, a family member, or a friend. And other things like communism aren't bad as an idea, but it's a person's intentions to use them for evil which are bad.

I mean have you ever heard of a drive by swording or axing? No! Did 5 or 6 people used to get killed by accident when the target was one person if the attacker had a sword? No! I've never heard of a sword going off by accident and killing someone and if you accidentally hurt yourself with one then it's more likely to be through lack of skill then a mishap with the machinery since there is none.


Also, the weapons of mass destruction, gun powder in general should have never been invented.

Edit: I don't know if the question covered the aspect of ideas and concepts as inventions. But, in any case things like violence, hate and evil are words that we humans use to qualify mainly actions as "good" or "bad". To ask for such things not to exist or be "invented" its almost like asking for humans not to exist or not to reason to the point were they can understand such concepts. In my opinion, I don't think evil or good can exist independently of humanity.

At first I thought this would be an easy answer but when I thought about it ... I don't think anything should not have been invented.

We may not like it but even nasty things like weapons of mass destruction have their purpose. It tests us and hopefully furthers the evolution of mankind.

What we survive from makes us stronger!

Money - simply because it can bring out the best or worst of all of us, but most times it's the latter.
