    I am of the opinion that the human mind is evolving from generation to generation.

    Whether I am correct or not I believe that humans should submit applications and undergo rigorous testing interviews before being allowed to breed.

    A caste system should be created with the intellectuals' spawn at the pinnacle governing the spawn of the athletes, workers, etc.

    Crossbred fetus' should be aborted so as to ensure the purifying of the two new species which will eventually arise.

    Do you consider yourself to be one of those "worthy" enough to breed?

    Whats you criteria specifically?

    A. Hitler tried this, it is still not popular.

    Your post is evidence that your opening statement may be incorrect.

    Actually its called eugenics and the nazis gave it a bad name, however, before that time it was widely supported within the mainstream scientific community.

    I suspect it will soon rear its ugly head once more. People tend to have short memories.

    Indeed. Who is worthy and who is not? I suspect what he values is where you will find your answer. Is it intellegence, is it physical ability, is it a particular hair color etc?

    Well, pure intelligence as a guidepost seems to fail too, just look at the life of William Sidis, who proportedly had the highest IQ of any person living or dead, estimated to be around 300, google him, look what happened to his life. MD at the age of 10, had the essentials of black hole theory a couple of decades before anyone else, at the ripe old age of 14, etc. but look at what happened to him.

    No no no. The next step of human evolution is on you, like stepping on a bug.

    Iron Hand

    With all the clarity of a dream
    the sky so blue, the grass so green
    the rank and file and the navy blue
    the deep and strong, the straight and true

    the blue line they got the given sign
    the belts the boots march forward in time
    the wood and leather the club and shield
    swept like a wave across the battlefield

    now with the clarity of a dream
    the blood so red, the grass so green
    the gleam of spur on chestnut flank
    the cavalry did burst upon the ranks

    oh the iron will and the iron hand
    in england's green and pleasant land
    no music for the shameful scene
    that night they said it had even shocked the queen

    well alas we've seen it all before
    knights in armour, days of yore
    the same old fears and the same old crimes
    we haven't changed since ancient times.
