Are the future generations more smarter and intelligent than the previous generations?
Are the future generation?s more smarter and intelligen?t than the previous generation?s? I think yes otherwise we would have been still living on trees! What do you think?
I am speaking solely for America. No. We have more information, laregly due to the Internet. Therefore, we have access to all of the knowledge that anyone has gathered in the history of humanity. The U.S. Department of Education was solely created to raise national test scores (which were pretty bad). Now, test scores are even worse. The U.S. no longer leads the world in any intellectual subject. It still has the best engineering schools, but over 50% of the degrees are awarded to foreign students. Only a tiny fraction of U.S. students major in science or math, which are the only viable subjects for advancing society. So, if you analyze the evidence, today's generations (on average) are actually dumber than those in the past.
i think it depends...
In the past there were very smart people, otherwise we wouldn't have what we have now such as fire, light, wheels... that then helped other things to develop. As technology evolves so does our brains that manufacture this technology...
I guess that every age (in terms of period of time) has its intelligent people.
No one is going backwards in terms of intelligence and development.
No. If we have seen further, it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants.
We build on the knowledge created and built by the previous generations. Socrates would know previous little of modern life, but few would call him less intelligent that today's philosophers.
Each generation builds on the information left by the previous.

Acts which made the hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctica, this hole permits UV rays to melt the ice glaciers resulting in floods and hurricanes (UV rays are also harmful for us, as these rays lead to skin cancer). Acts...
