    Consider that by not having kids you increase the proportion of idiots on the planet though.

    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Except intelligence heritance isn't that big as people make it out to be. Cultural capital, maybe.

    There's an ongoing debate how much of intelligence is carried over by genes but I never said it wasn't. It's just that other factors, like nutrition, parenting, education etc. play as big as the role as genetics do.

    Which is why better access to all of these things make up for smarter society.

    I decided not to have kids because 'muricans consume too many resources and help to destroy the world. Not that I am afraid of the world that the kids would be in, but that I don't want to make it worse.

    Yup. Nature vs. Nurture current Uni education says 50% nature, 10% parenting nurture and 40% random external factors. Yes, life events can have a direct influence on nurture cultivated IQ development.

    I agree with you on that but its what the world uses. You should see true cognitive and ability testing in psychology tho. Highly specialised field and the test is spread out over 3 days (6 to 9 hours) not that multiple choice drivel from the internet.

    I think what I'm really referring to is what you call cultural capital. Like children raised with good parents and homes vs those raising them in a fundamentalist religion or something worse.

    What's the point in measuring intelligence? The only people who seem to give a shit about it tend to be complete idiots.

    Imagine being smart enough to be able to join mensa, but dumb enough to be so vacuous that you do

    Evolution will do its job just fine there, like with every other invasive species: they feed themselves from the local species until there's nothing left and then also slowly die out, giving room to the remaining (fittest) survivors.

    I got confused there, because "Mensa" in German is the name of the students' canteen at an university. Wasn't aware that there's an "IQ club" of the same name.

    People allways forget IQ is fluid. In my first uni year i might have scored 130 but if i would do the same test now i might score 110 simply because i just about lost all my math skills due to the fact i haven't used them since then combined with use of electronic calculators.

    Cognitive and ability testing can be very useful tho e.g. testing if you are on the spectrum or other health and insurance related subjects.
