QuoteIn a paper co-authored with his colleague at the Future of Humanity Institute (Musk donates), Carl Shulman, Bostrom explored the possibility of engineering human beings with super-high IQs by genetically screening embryos for "desirable" traits, destroying those that lack these traits, and then growing new embryos from stem cells, over and over again. They found that by selecting one embryo out of 10, creating 10 more out of the one selected, and repeating that process 10 times over, scientists could create a radically enhanced person with IQ gains of up to 130 points.

No, genocide has the-ide suffix, like fratricide, suicide and homicide. It requires killing people.Depopulation as it is currently operating is lowering the birth rate below replacement level. No killing required.This is neither a capitalist or socialist phenomenon, it's a biological one and no goobermint of any flavor has found a means to stop it.Everybody has their own pet theory on why this is happening across so many different countries all at the same time. Personally, I think it's basically economics, kids just cost more than most people can afford to pay, or want to pay. There really isn't much reward for it anymore either. Used to be kids were parents insurance policy for when they got old. Now, kids either disappear and move away, or they are a continuing drain well into their 20s and 30s. So why go through all that sacrifice when you can live better without them?https://www.vox.com/23971366/declining-birth-rate-fertility-babies-childrenYou can't even pay people to have more kids RE

QuoteHumans have inhabited the Earth for approximately six million years, yet one of the most basic instincts known to man is still considered taboo in Korea: sex. It has always been the elephant in the room to the point where children and teenagers in Korea are oblivious and feel awkward discussing the subject.
