Human Evolution Has Come To A Halt

I’ve long had a theory that human evolution has stopped. While it’s great that we can keep people alive who have genetic diseases. It may not be ideal that they birth more people with potentially damaging genes. There’s nothing to cause the natural selection of beneficial traits anymore.

Could this be what ends the human race’s rule on Earth? We slowly lose our intellect until we can no longer support our infrastructure? Or do we survive, coming to a happy medium of mediocre intelligence?

I’m not sure what the solution is. Encourage people to breed for intelligence instead of looks? Artificial Selection?

Here’s a study that says humans are dumber

We don’t have 5 senses, we have 7. And none of them are supernatural.

We all know the traditional 5 senses. I think we have 2 more, for a total of 7:

  1. Sight
  2. Hearing
  3. Touch
  4. Smell
  5. Taste
  6. Temperature
  7. Equilibrium

Some people say that temperature is the same as touch, but I proffer that even though the sensors are in the same place, your skin, they are different. One detects texture and pressure, the other differences in temperature. Two very different things!

Equilibrium is like a gyroscope. You can tell if you’re right side up or upside down. You can sense acceleration and zero G (that initial fall in a roller coaster).

So yes, we have 7 senses. Let’s change our textbooks.
