No.
Although I guess watching our current governments would qualify.

The normal rules of evolution do not apply to humans.

Oh yes, they do. But modern society has changed the parameters radically, so evolution does not take its normal course any more.

If you think that a higher IQ gets rewarded in an evolutionary sense (i.e. by more offspring), just look around you.

Well I should think that staring at all those digital devices all day long may be a factor as well!

I have to agree that the people having the most offspring are the most ignorant, and the most religious people.

The children in the West generally all survive, but if you only have 2 with a 99.9% chance of survival to adulthood, those with 8 kids with a 25% mortality rate are still going to have 6 kids survive to adulthood. The health of these people does not really matter, because as long as a person lives to an age to reproduce, they are being biologically successful.

So those religious people in the US that have large families are probably going to eventually control a larger part of the economy and politics. So, in that way they will be more successful as a group also.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Well this could very well happen. But I have noticed some changes in the younger people, early twentieish to children mostly. Chins are getting smaller and many of them have chubby elbow areas kind of like a babies even if the person is skinny!

''The increase in eye size would be due to a combination of living in space and an increasing tendency for humans to find strong facial features attractive.''

The supernormal stimulus had long been known. Neolithic Venus statues anyone?

So why stop at facial traits?

Interesting, from the wiki article, an entry I could have wrote;

"Harvard psychologist Deirdre Barrett argues that supernormal stimulation govern the behavior of humans as powerfully as that of animals. In her 2010 book, Supernormal Stimuli: How Primal Urges Overran Their Evolutionary Purpose,[9] she examines the impact of supernormal stimuli on the diversion of impulses for nurturing, sexuality, romance, territoriality, defense, and the entertainment industry’s hijacking of our social instincts. In the earlier book, Waistland,[2] she explains junk food as an exaggerated stimulus to cravings for salt, sugar, and fats and television as an exaggeration of social cues of laughter, smiling faces and attention-grabbing action."

With more and reality tv shows coming online every year, celebrating the cult of personality, I have no expectations we will be around in another 100,000 years. Not without encouraging eugenics again.

If we are still around, in 100,000 years we will all look like hairless ET Grays, but in any color we like, and of course with cloth on !

Cheers Id forgotten all about that,  but I think its more of an abstract image than a depiction of someone real !!   Maybe an animal/woman type of thing?

So the normal rules don't apply then.

We're suppose to be more intelligent today with all the advancements we made then our ancestors 100,000 years ago.
Maybe on a technological level. But on a wisdom level? Hmmmm

   It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve.
But to much skepticism can make you narrow minded to extraordinary possibilities.
