yo. well, the main "religions" of this site are christianity and evolution idealism.
so, with those two in mind, lets take into effect the smartness of people
now, lets say that every generation gets dumber. now lets say we start with Adam and Eve, for instance. Adam and Eve are perfect, nothign wrong, the
most brilliant people ever to live- can figure things out the human brain could never do today.
now, Adam's kids are SLIGHTLY dumber than Adam is, slightly less perfect. and his kids, his kids, his kids, all get dumber to present day dumbness
So Adam has Cane, and Seth. Cane and Seth both have the same IQ, or smartness. lets stick with Canes lineage (made up figures)
Cane's lineage has kids every 500 years (as it wasnt uncommon for peeps to live to 1K years old back then) so it goes Bob, Larry, and Junior. thats
only 3 generations
Seth's lineage has kids every 20 years. so thats a WHOLE lot more generations. thus, Junior would be a whole lot smarter than Seth's youngest son.
infact, Seth's youngest son would be just downright stupid, and his genes would be awful.
Evolutionist view point- the more generations, the smarter, better, better genes and all. so in evolution, the MORE generations, the smarter, the less
generations the dumber.
and that would explain, and answer the question of why/if people are truly dumber/smarter today.
