Subject: I wonder why Life doesn't pass on knowledge and experiences genetically through procreation. - [Edit Post]          0   0

Seems like if Life was so god damn awesome, it would at least give us the information we need to stop stepping on our genitals with every generation. I also wonder where this fear and irrationality is coming from. I mean beyond the obvious IMO. Like is something making us stupider? Not enough darwinism? Biological disposition/limitation that resorts to self-destruction because we can't adapt to a big world or lots of information?

But yeah I agree it's very sad.
“I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or my grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantative content in the enormously influential media, the 30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.” -Carl Sagan 1995
