No, it's called taste buds, an evolutionary adaptation so that we would actually eat once in a while.

It tastes good because thanks to our non-technological forefathers were born into very active lifestyles and fats are very attractive to the body, making them "taste better" for us.

I've never eaten it but i'm guessing the fact that it's popular is because it tastes good. The same goes for everything else. Also honor in taste is only for retarded chefs and "connoisséurs" who either think "Slap as much high costs blends between two different taste, sweet and salty, sour and bland together" or because they want to feel special about it.

Now I don't fucking know if that thing tastes like shit but I know two things about why people eat "bad foods": It actually tastes good for the body (mind you the body is retarded) or it's filled with a harmless chemical that makes it taste good. Either way, there is no shame or honor in food, just adding that because it's not the first time i've heard something so retarded.

Yet we are making it towards space, are you implying that *Gasp* we are not actually bombing our entire species to hell, ruining our planet and actually figuring out how FTL would work?

I mean yes I basically just described them as evil and reversed from what you wrote but it's not like what we did wasn't done with the thought "Oh god, millions of lives just went to waste." I mean for fucks sake one of the scientist working on the bomb that blew up hiroshima went of to eat the bullet. nearly everyone felt bad about doing it.

We humans are really fucking empathic, and while it's easy to hide that behind making the enemy a big blob of one or two evil dictators forming an entire nation or dehumanizing the other side through propaganda and defacing there's no denying that people that are at least close to normal are afraid of killing people, because it feels wrong, sure it's easier to do it when you can't see them but honestly if you aren't completely fucked up in the head you are gonna be sleepless when you hear the death toll if you ever did something like that.

But they do, that's the whole point of being a social species. Empathy wasn't a thing some old moldy man came up with when he felt he was tired of being pissed on.

Sure, conflict and other horrors can dampen and make us forget or make us push away it, like if you are living alone in the wilderness and is constantly hunted, but that's because that is literally insanity, forgetting human socialization through isolation basically makes you insane much like boredom and lack of using your brain makes you dumber so does the lack of being a normal human being.

Yes, it's thought but a human with a mature social understanding and no general defects won't exactly feel nice about hurting other people. Also no shit a lot is thought from parent to child, a lot of things are. It's just that being a social species wasn't exactly a fucking choice. It's just good and bad are labels for what we should call the feelings we get.

So yes, I will act like a human being feels bad about killing another because if it wasn't we wouldn't be the god damned humans we are today , our society didn't just fucking poof out of nowhere with all these concepts of what is good or bad, the muslims didn't say "Don't enslave another muslim" without actually feeling that enslaving another relatable human being is bad. Rome wouldn't give any respect or actual chance of going free if they didn't think "Hmmm, slaves are important but then again they also cry every fucking night". Guess why actual death sentences are so fucking rare? Because while the prisoners are faceless figures labeled "EVIL" with big black words there's still some understanding that they are humans and we feel bad about doing it because in today's world it's really easy to get info and a face on every human.

Hey, biofags, is this true?

Aren't humans still technically evolving?
Doesn't societal pressure to develop intelligence still count as evolutionary pressure?

We're a species that's produced activities and tools for the general development of intelligence.
It's what education and internet were originally designed for.
More than that, we're a species with enough nutritional resources to actually maintain our brain power
(as opposed to our brains using up too much energy, and not enough is diverted to muscles or whatever, and we end up as lunch on the food web/chain).
IQ tests have to constantly be updated because 'dem young'ins turn out smarter than us.
Aristotle would be a fucking idiot by today's standards.

Am I wrong? I'm genuinely curious.

>Why can we talk so much better than do math? Because the parts of our brain for speech are so much older than the parts of our brain for calculations.

The ability to communicate well is actually useful.
So much so that it's considered as one measure of intelligence.

Actually, due to advances in modern medicine there is no evolutionary pressure for us to develop intelligence. Like, we had a good couple thousand years where being brainy could put you in charge of a disproportionately high share of resources, thus you, your wife and children would be well fed, thus you would have more offspring who survive to reach breeding age. Also, the limited reach of medicine would mean that only you and yours would receive treatment for illness, natal care to reduce risk of death at childbirth, etc.

But nowadays, the thing you have to understand is that while intelligence of you or your parents strongly correlates with wealth, wealth isn't actually relevant to evolution unless it defines your ability to survive. At the moment it is probably detrimental and selected against. Now sure, the poor or less intelligent have higher mortality from disease and violence even now, but there isn't enough in it when you compare to the rich and intelliegent, who reproduce sparingly.

We will only resume developing towards increased intelligence when we get back to a situation where the crafty, inventive and generally brainy folk breed like rabbits compared to their counterparts, OR there are good odds that the 7 children that a dumb couple shit out perish before the age of ten from lack of care or disease rather than simply becoming more unhealthy but fully functional copies of their parents successful r-selection based subspecies.

While technically yes, humans are still able to evolve we've pretty much eliminated all selection pressures on our species. Smart, dumb, strong, weak, pretty much anyone can find a mate in our society /tg/ notwithstanding.

The Flynn effect, where IQ scores seem to consistently rise, is currently poorly understood but is thought to be because of increased exposure to examination and IQ-test style questions during school, rather than an actual increase in average brainpower. Recent research also suggests the Flynn effect is diminishing in more developed nations.

So basically, our brains today aren't any different than Aristotle's. It's just that we learn at an early age what was in their time the cutting edge of mathematical and scientific progress. They are the giants upon whose shoulders we stand.

But doesn't our current situation just result in more variation in the human race?
I mean, if two couples - one smart and one retarded - decide to have their our offspring, you would have two sets of offspring.

This is opposed to just having one intelligent couple having their offspring.
The same number of children would occur, and they would be just as intelligent regardless of the idiot family.

The only real differences that would occur are if you marry off an intelligent person to an idiot (which is suboptimal),
or if you allow intelligent people to have their own harems.

I have no problem with the second difference.

We don't know if there are any aliens to even contact us.

It's grown in popularity somewhat in the last few decades with the discovery of hundreds of "earth like" planets, none of which show any outward signs of advance life.

Evolution refers to the total genepool changing. If stupid people occupy a larger and larger portion of the gene pool, the effective intelligence of homo sapiens decreases. Evolution is a pretty forgiving term because even if natural selection is driving us towards idiocy, those idiots are still the most evolved specimens. But if people are added and removed from the gene pool essentially at random as they are now, no evolution occurs, because there is no driving stimulus to respond to.

If intelligent people never, ever interbreed with stupid people for thousands and thousands of years, and the dumbest of the intelligents are slain, as well as the smartest of the stupid, you might start to see speciation into a smart walking ape and a dumb walking ape.

And variation isn't necessarily great. People make a big deal of the irish potato famine being a sign that conformity always breeds disaster, but the fact is that there can only be one optimum design for a single task, and also higher variation provides more notional 'entry points' into the species for diseases, even if it aids in slowing their spread once they arrive.

In nature, if multiple species occupy the exact same niche the more effective one will always destroy the less competitive one, because ultimately all resources are finite. If a subspecies of human that cannot contribute as effectively as humans at literally any task arose, allowing them to continue consuming resources with the rest of us is literally just pointlessly advancing our doomsday clock.

>> No.33559210

Yes, I would question it. Intelligence isn't built by literally adding more intelligent people to the population, but by educating everyone on how to think and use their brains. The main obstacle to this is, as I said in >>33559077, people who want to stifle this process for personal power.

Yeah, you're right. I can't think of a counter-argument.

Even considering how people tend to be attracted to those with similar perceived intelligence, resources - including living space and attention - on earth are still limited.

It was a line of discussion that required assumptions.

Technically speaking, we're on the same side of the debate.
I believe in general that people who engage in an activity become better at it.
Therefore, people who use their brains in general become better at using their brains.
These same people, whose brains have been epigenetically affected and who engage in activities that increase intelligence, would thus likely produce offspring who are also intelligent.

Thus, I believed that the early development of education and internet by our species would be more than enough to offset the lack of evolutionary pressure in relation to the alien species who had 2 million years of fucking mega-Australia.
However, now I'm not as confident.

>> No.33560319

I can think of a few counter-arguments.
1) Intelligence is neither linear nor uniform. There are a huge number of various ways different brains can contribute to mankind through mathematics, music, language, empathy, self-perception, categorization, and so on and so forth. Diversity breeds survival.
2) While resources are technically limited, they're still vast, and we've only harnessed a tiny fraction of what we conceivably could. Solar power, geoheat, wind and ocean currents, the huge untamed expanses of non-European continents, all these things are capable of supporting humanity many times over if we would just reach out and grab them.
3) As we said, intelligence, whatever its form, is mutable and can be trained by whoever wants to. There is no "dumb chunk of humanity", and anyone who tries to convince you otherwise is trying to sell you something, probably while degrading whatever people they deem unworthy.

>> No.33560461

Even if that were true, I would gladly die for the sake of leaving a cleaner world for the mankind that follows to reach for my dreams in my stead. Earth has vastly, vastly more people than are productive for essentially any fathomable purpose human beings can be put to except I dunno, punching every other vertebrate on the planet to death without using tools. It needs to stop, and while any cutoff to determine who lives and who dies is essentially arbitrary because we are all quivering meats balancing ourselves on an elaborate series of hydroxyapatite poles, it would probably be most agreeable to leave behind those best capable of continuing on mankind's most unique features, IE our capacity for critical thought and invention.

1) Intelligence is not linear or uniform, yes. That doesn't mean that there's noone on earth who is literally worse than the norm at everything. We give autists some credit for the occasional show of savantism, but contrary to popular belief this is fairly rare and intellectual disabilities are overwhelmingly just that. Not to mention that there is a huge spectrum of capability outside of glaring failures in the formation of the brain.

2) You are only thinking of electrical energy, which is only one limiting resource that the mass of humanity is steadily butting against its capacity to rip from the environment. In order to survive we are destroying vaster and vaster swathes of biodiversity of non-human species, that actual possess inventive adaptations from millions of years of indepedent evolution we could learn from, as opposed to the thousands offered by other people.

3) You've been brainwashed by the PC crowd if you believe that everyone's capacity to become intelligent through education is equal. And I don't mean 'muh some people learn in different ways' I mean there are studied genetic differences that define our ability to gather information on associations between concepts, and our ability to concentrate on a certain number of variables simultaneously.

A chimpanzee, sufficiently trained, would not be able to attain these as well as a human would. Likewise many humans are not as able to attain these.

The brain, as one of the many highly complex tissues constructed from our genetic blueprint, has its function greatly effected by even small changes in genetic and epigenetic makeup. People seem to be born equal if you compare to other animals, but they really, really are not. Certain beneficial mutations have greatly expanded the capacity of the human brain for critical thought to no known detriment, but surprise surprise this didn't cause everyone without that mutation to abruptly cease existing overnight.

1) Intellectual disabilities are also uncommon, and most of their victims can still find some way of contributing to humanity, even by a fraction of labor.

2) Species die out every day with or without our "help", and even then, most of them have nothing special compared to those who survive. We learn what we can from those we meet, theorize the rest, and steadily trudge onward.

3) >PC crowd
C'mon man. The wonderful thing about the brain is that it's malleable as hell. Genetics only play a tiny role in its ultimate capacities, kinda like athletes who depend more on training than genetics, save for the guys who go to the absolute maximum of their craft.

You say this like you expect to be able to guilt me into rescinding my argument because my argument is 'mean' to certain people.

In any case, the groups, by their nature, are defined by who has the gene and who doesn't. There can be a racial association, but ultimately every one of these mutations has to be capable of 'catching on' into new populations or it never would have made its way into the genetics of the first hosts children, and it isn't like any race on Earth has had less time to evolve. For an example of the sort of thing I am talking about, see "Neurotensin Receptor 1 Gene (NTSR1) Polymorphism Is Associated with Working Memory " which is available for viewing on the Public Library of Science website.

I don't care about 'meanness', I care about the implication that these genes somehow determine worthiness to live in your eyes. In nature, the "unworthy" die, simple as that. If you're alive, you still deserve to live.
