Generally, people with lower IQ will have more children than people with a higher IQ. And because they people with the lower IQ will have children with low IQ, the offspring will do the same. Not all families with tons of children are of low IQ, but majority of the low income/lower class members of a society will just have children repeatedly as a way of generating more income.

Also, for about 500 years people were persecuted for having a high IQ, or thinking differently than the church in any way.

The brains with the most crevices, all those little wrinkles on it, have the most capacity for brain power.

Brains are cool. When you hold them in your hand they are soggy and kind of gooey and go through your fingers. They're still cool.

it's not the size of the brain that matters but more so the speed of the connections within the brain.

I knew this for some decades. And the same is knowen for domesticated animals. A pigs brain is much smaller than that of a boar. Apparently you need a bigger brain to survive in the wild. A brain with lot of matter dedicated to sensual input, quick reactions and other vital functions.

I'm pretty sure people are cramming their brains with knowledge today, I doubt we`re getting any more stupid.
