Could our genes lead to our demise? Could they make us sterile?Hmmm, it is suggested that our jeans can do this, if they are too tight!
Females can survive on their own
It's cruel to say, but the fact that mankind's gene pool quality is deteriorating is solely because we humans, as a species, allow the genetically weak to survive.
Who are the genetically weak? The ones who have Down syndrome? The ones who have diabetes? The ones who have depression? What does it mean that our gene pool is deteriorating? What are the symptoms of a deteriorated gene pool? The things that meant a disadvantage in the wild are not necessarily that disadvantageous here and now.This is a difficult subject indeed.
A question - do we care for the sick/disabled/weak because we live in the lap of comparitive luxury and so can afford to? If we were a small group suffering hardship I expect the Old/sick/weak would be left out in the 'snow' to die as before. I genuinely think we're just Australopithicines wearing clothes.
