intelligence 265x165 Leading Geneticist: Human Intelligence is Slowly DecliningWould you be surprised to hear that the human race is slowly becoming dumber, and dumber? Despite our advancements over the last tens or even hundreds of years, some ‘experts’ believe that humans are losing cognitive capabilities and becoming more emotionally unstable. One Stanford University researcher and geneticist, Dr. Gerald Crabtree, believes that our intellectual decline as a race has much to do with adverse genetic mutations. But there is more to it than that.

According to Crabtree, our cognitive and emotional capabilities are fueled and determined by the combined effort of thousands of genes. If a mutation occurred in any of of these genes, which is quite likely, then intelligence or emotional stability can be negatively impacted.

“I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000 BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas, and a clear-sighted view of important issues. Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues,” the geneticist began his article in the scientific journal Trends in Genetics.

I been saying for years that we are not evolving ... We're de evolving, I had no idea years ago that we are being effected by what we eat, what we breath, and what drugs have been introduced into our daily lives voluntarily and without consent .. The fluoride thing really hit me like a ton of bricks .. Sometimes I feel down right retarded.. I am aware of it and believe we can fight back by choosing to do things to get back some of our cognitive abilities, natural (if you can find it) food and food supplements, FIRE YOUR MD. .. if you have one, do not take any drugs if possible, Fever reducers like aspirin are ok.. Find your common sense, there really is a natural cure for everything, start today it's never too late but first you have to realize that if there is dumbing down going on ... Start with yourself realize that you have been dumbed down too!! Don't point your finger at the sheeple and say " at least I am not as retarded as he or she is" .. When I realized what was going on i suddenly realized i had powers i had never used .. I was as dumb as a rock.. I was a sheeple but I know now its not all my fault but I can begin to recover some of what they took... I am now on the learning curve, we all know something good and share and that's great! But non of us know it all ...the journey begins when we say maybe i should listen and be open minded to all points of view.. Like all of us here on 12160 ... Well that's my 2 cents :). Oh ... I almost forgot .... STOP WATCHING TALMUDVISION ( TV) i truly believe it is the most dangerous tool in there kit of dumbing down the world !!!!
