Is the Human Race Getting Dumber?
If you ever look at the world around you and think... Are people getting dumber? Well the answer is not really surprising. A new study out of Europe has proved that we are getting dumber.
The study found that the average IQ in first-world countries has dropped 14.1 points over the past century. Every decade, there's an average drop of 1.23 IQ points.
And the researchers say the reason really is that, quote, "women of higher intelligence are having fewer children, meaning women of lower intelligence are driving population growth."
Do you remember the movie "Idiocracy"? The plot of the movie was centered on the fact that the human race had become dumber over years of smart people not having kids and the less intelligent breeding like rabbits.
Alright smart people start making babies!
