I agree that industrialization does impead the progress of natual evolution. Advances in medical technology and soft ethics lead to the preservation of bad genetic traits that are passed to futur generations.
Although, to allow disease to be the means of culling out the weak is illogical because of examples such as Professor Stephen Hawking. Hawking is the Sir Isaac Newton of our time. If a system of ethics existed that allowed the ALS disease to "cull out" Hawking, then the cultural and technological progression of the Human species will have suffered a great loss.
The process of evolution could be applied to ideas, education, and knowlege.
Bad Ideas will eventually go extinct and only be refered to as the dynasaurs of philosophical thought, for example, the idea that the universe orbits the earth.
Because the system of religion is really a political tool that bases it's power on the exploitation of ignorace and undiciplined imagination, as the Human species reaches a higer level of education, then the philosophy of religion will finally go the way of the ugly dynasaur (the desendants of which are the birds that we have established our superiority over, because most of us like to eat chicken ).
Some people are so brilliant and intelligent, with effortless understanding of mathematics, that I feel like the Neanderthal in comparison. Perhaps the next step in brain evolution will hopefully be in mathematics rather than linguistics. I think that people talk too much, and that any further evolutionary "advancements" in linguistics could backfire and lead to the extinction of the human species.
The dinosaurs went extinct because of a large meteorite impact with the earth. If this had not happended, possibly we would today have intelligent dinosaurs instead of intelligent mammals.
Such large meteorite impacts, which kill most of the life on earth, happen every fifty million years or so. Thus, before the sun becomes a red giant, we can expect many such large meteorite impacts. Will humans be able to outlive such an impact, or will we go extinct at the next meteorite impact, just like the dinosaurs (excpect the birds) did?
i think the intelligence are not remining their status...
they may change sometimes...

Individuals differ in intelligence, and especially in their scores on intelligence tests. Intelligence test scores predict individual differences in school achievement moderately well.
Egentligen borde sådana här gamla, dåliga översättningar av texter i Web4health nyöversättas med de mycket bättre översättare som finns idag, jämfört med 2006, då översättningen som jag svarar på nu, gjordes.
Intelligent dinosaurs: But that is what would probably happen. And probably much earlier in time. The meteor which killed the dinosaurs may have opened up the future for mammals, including mankind. But the dinosaurs had a great advantage. It would take millions of years for the mammals to evolve to the status which would produce intelligent beings. So intelligent dinosaurs would probably appear many millions of years before intelligent mammals.
