Intelligent man

How intelligent are we humans? How intelligent are we likely to become? A Stanford University educator and geneticist has contended we’re not as bright as we used to be and we are getting dimmer all the time. He theorizes that in pre-civilized times, only the most mentally nimble managed to survive and bequeath their genes to the next generations. But as civilization developed, life grew safer. The possibility of these less-intelligent individuals passing along their genes increased. These humans survived longer. Human beings, according to this theory, reached their intellectual peak 2,000 to 6,000 years ago. The downward slide then began.
