I think you guys are overestimating the amount of intelligence that is inherited.

I never overestimate the amount of stupidity inherent in the human race.  In fact, I think that humanity deserves extinction.............let some other species have a crack at fucking the world up. 
How are we fucking the world up?  We are still the world's bitch.

Do you REALLY want an answer to that question?????  Or are you just being contrary??  Either way I'm taking my pessimistic mindset and ass and hauling it upstairs to bed!  :yawn:

I don't.  Increasing nutrition, decreasing disease burden and increasing information richness are environmental factors which are increasing the average IQ, but these factors can only act on the genetically determined neural hardware that each person receives, and some people inherit the genes for a creaky Pentium I while others inherit the genes for a Core 2 Quad.

To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

The Muslims are also outbreeding the west.
Looks like there is going to be a big underclass to destroy, most of the smart people in Islamic countries have fled elsewhere. Iran has had one hell of a brain drain, Ahmedinijad is one of the smartest people there...

And they sit around on the internet all day, complaining about the hardships and incompatibilities of being a minority platform, while the Mac Classics piss off the Mac Pros with their incessant gibberish about ginseng, diapers and fire agates.

Mankind is degenerating and will inevitable become a species no more developed than chimps if we continue the path we're on right now. The only way out is a radical change in our mentallity, which means reinstating ancient traditions that allowed man to live more in line with nature. Our current degeneration is the direct consequence of our own arrogance and our abandonment of nature as the provider of moral and social guidelines.

With the dregs of society breeding like rabbits while fertility continues to fall among the more intelligent individuals, I sometimes wonder about the future of Homo Sapiens Sapiens.  It seems that the average IQ is set to decline, but that decline won't be across the board, as people tend to breed with others of a similar IQ.  Instead, it looks like Homo Sapiens Sapiens is in the very early stages of a speciation event in which human partner preferences have caused a degree of reproductive isolation between the high and low ends of the IQ distribution.  Since this reproductive barrier stems from basic human nature, it should be resistant to cultural, economic and political shifts, and is only likely to grow stronger as the population continues to diverge.  With time, the classic IQ bell curve will split and there will be two peaks with a valley between them, which will grow deeper and wider as the groups continue to separate, and as less people will be in the middle IQ range to provide a bridge population, there will be less genetic flow between the two groups, increasing the rate of separation.

stupid hot broads will keep the advanced breed from getting too far ahead of the jerry springer guests. Biff won't care how dumb she is if she is a 10

The rest of the world would definitely be better off without humanity....
