According to many posts on the internet, humans are getting dumber. For example:
People Getting Dumber? Human Intelligence Has Declined Since Victorian Era, Research Suggests
Our technology may be getting smarter, but a provocative new study suggests human intelligence is on the decline. In fact, it indicates that Westerners have lost 14 I.Q. points on average since the Victorian Era.
Is it really true? Today's kids can count at least up to 100 at the age of 4 and they can even read. When I was at that age I was only drawing circles. Lol. We have young kids who are entrepreneurs or science prodigies.
The technology enables are to study faster and more efficiently. Youtube or google gives us so much material to learn about anything and to become an expert in any area. This was not possible for our parents and we can see that now many of them can't catch up with the today's technology.
