The real evolution happened to our awareness not our bodies
Please don’t try to be right by taking the higher moral ground, it is just rude. There is always a point in an argument with a mind which is at a level to understand. If you are coded for what I am trying to tell you, then it is important to explain the slam dunk. Otherwise, it is not turned ON in you or being USED—get it? Can you understand I don’t argue good food for everyone! I argue that giving a population antibiotic and not teaching them how to farm properly just creates a population explosion which results in massive death by starvation. Get the Genetic potential and then make decisions on your hypothesis that good food for everyone is a good idea. To repeat myself, are aphasia genetic or due to trauma? It is one way, both, magic, or science???? The genes on and off are the expression. THE POTENTIAL is what needs to be understood and studied. The slam dunk is that the schools, world, and people would be improved if we studied the potential. (all genes ON and all genes OFF: what happens?) I get you want to put a band-aid on the system and try to help. I respect this. Furthermore, I agree. I am just arguing something that you seem to not understand (i.e. slam dunk.) Your genes make your mind… How do you argue this? If the genes don’t control/basis for your mind… why don’t dog run the world? In fact, why not trees, rocks, clouds or unicorns… Again, the slam dunk is the fact that your genes did give you the platform to make that choice to have this conversation… What else do we not know or take for granted? This would be in regard to how critically genes impact our mind. Again: “I don’t believe you do. In fact, I believe you are caught up in arguing the inane..." Ok, give everyone good food and smile... I think there is an additional level to this. Stupid gene on or off, let the computer environment influence your perception and turn OFF the Stupid gene--ok? Even with the stupid gene off, can you pick up what I am dropping down?

Learning to forgive is 'the PhD" of being human. True or False? It represents the highest level of human development or does it?
Forgive the analogy, it is more like you taking a laxative and expecting the other person to give a shit. In the end, you get cleaned out which is the important thing.  I am more thought than emotion; therefore, it is a matter of logic for why it happened. I cannot resolve the emotion if I don't understand the mental process the person applied. You don't forgive or ask forgiveness of inanimate objects. Therefore, thought plays a huge role in the process. I just have issues with people whom cannot admit they are to blame and need to ask for forgiveness. It is pretty simple to understand your part in any situation from the other person's perspective; not that we need to accept their perspective as the truth. Yet, you are a better person if you can exhibit this behavior and request forgiveness from their perspective.

Plus, I cannot accept ignoring genes being a fact of life at the single expense of one person afflicted by a genetic disorder! Really, you don't want to talk about how to understand the root cause? "This year the NIH Office of Rare Disease Research (ORDR) encouraged everyone to wear jeans to show support for the campaign of using a genes and jeans concept to educate the public on the prevelance of rare genetic diseases and the lack of available drug treatments." http://addiandcassi.com/national-center-advancing-translational-sciences-ncats-announced-national-institutes-health-nih-director-francis-collins/

“..the neo evolution idea is really not going to provide for any schooling - just another eugenics disaster waiting to happen. Explain to me how neo-evolution provides good schools?” First and foremost, I thank you for the slam dunk. My argument is simple. Genes code for the mind, the mind is what learns, the school is where the mind goes to learn… Thus, the right genes to the right school means better learning! SLAM!! (I am actually the product of this. So, I speak from first hand experience.) How much do you know about aphasia? Moreover, how much do you know about learning differences (aka: disabilities)? We are complex organisms. The way we learn best differs from one group to the next and I am a firm believer in the genetic link between these differences. Thus, screw the archaic way of teaching, it has been 40 plus years of talking about cigarette smoke and people still smoke. So, argue all you like that the money should be spent telling future heart-attach victims not to eat red meat. (good luck, there is precedent.) For myself, I think it is inane. Don’t bother with what you want to put a bandaid on. Fix the root cause of the symptom. Do you see where I am coming from? I don’t believe you do. In fact, I believe you are caught up in arguing the inane. SCREW CREATION VS. EVOLUTION! If you debate it, I will not see you as an intellectual equal—sorry. This is the honest truth, you don’t need to believe in the past to understand the future and your argument (i.e bacteria to man) is not changing the fact that the world will burn to a pulp, be blown up, or massive epidemic.

To sum up, get the science of why and try to fix it. Either way, you gain knowledge. As for Eugenics being an issue, only an idiot believes that the actions of the Nazi party is the only expression of eugenics. Get over it, it is the argument that the dinosaurs’ bones are really placed there by satan to trick you into going to hell. Eugenics is a wonderful thing and the complete expression of a conscious mind; otherwise, keep reproducing with out thought or logic… even worse, no regard for the future you destroy. I hope you can get past the you, you, you…. Are you ready to kick it up a notch? Explain to me how schooling and neoevolution would work best together? If not, this is why Harvey stated to pull out your phones and ignore the rest of the talk. The reality is we are creatures and there are rules to how we work—period! I am here to discuss how we can use these rules and how to improve the overall species. Should everyone be placed on a restrictive diet? Why are some people susceptible to heart attacks? Wow, does that not sound more like a high school science project? Leave the isolation of the gene, and large scale experimentation to the university. In fact, maybe the high school student will become the same college student studying the phenomena.

In the end, I think your idea of education is correct. However, you need a school to teach in and with out neo-evolution your “school” will never exist. Post script: Nature vs. nurture is really BS unless you understand how it actually works. Genotype creates the phenotype! Dogs dont start walking on two feet and shop at starbucks.

Plus, when amy and bob get married and have kids we can have the observation tested. Moreover, this would be done as high-school science classes. Any abnormal traits would be encouraged to increase the width of the gene pool. However, we would choose which is considered “best” based off the decrease in obviously unfortunate genes. In other words, you pay/assist people to keep having kids if they contain BRCA2!! However, exhibit control if the frequency is high to the point of damaging the healthcare system. Plus, how would you know if it will damage it unless you test for acceptable holistic approaches? Wow, health care becomes cheaper, you know to eat xyz, and your life is increased and improved because the level of science is not elementary… it is HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE!!!!!! To point out, my family name is a known genetic disorder, my friends who exhibit disorders have heard my argument in full, and this is not impractical for someone with imagination. So, how would you implement your idea? Moreover, using my idea as a template make my argument for me! If you are hear to understand and move forward, you should be able to run with my idea and point out the ways to improve it. (regardless if you agree or not!) However, you stated the idea is ridiculous before proposing any. “So, why would we even reconsider such a rediculous notion?” “Clearly we don't have any "ideal" genes in humanity.” Mother Theresa gene? “We actually desperately need education and knowledge and perhaps we need to go back to our roots to understand how moral responsibility and love and care and working together could perhaps be way more important than seeking the right genes. This involves education, not "neo-evolution" As stated and I believe you cannot argue, negative to the above (e.g. love) are favorable. The argument of loving upbringing is nurture which cannot change the nature. Otherwise, we would teach trees to dance. cont:

To PM on 02Jun2011: Yes, the "attempts" at control you point out are the same crock. Furthermore, I keep hearing it. So, let us leave the “idiots” in the past and understand how to implement it on a constructive path. Realize that the ability to love, care, understand morality etc are GENETIC! Otherwise, a zygote become a human because you love it. If true, we could do it with dogs, cats, and trees! If you choose to focus on education, be happy in a world filled with sociopaths because that is evolutionarily favorable--regardless on where you think we came from! To the specific comment: "I too care about where we're going, and neo-evolution is a complete crock for dealing with that. Do you honestly think we can drive evolution to some higher ground in the short time needed to deal with problems on the world today? " Yes, I do. I think the ability to give a crap, see, understand, and drive to implement change are genetic. Your mind is not a magical thing. It is the intangible functions of the brain. The brain is made of cells and cells are driven by genes. Do you not agree? "Now I will proceed to disagree on the future benefits of gene "defining the best possible gene pool we can create"... ... Okay, in a practical way, describe how we can do that?" Make the impractical practical! It seems you already believe that it is impossible. Therefore, any attempt would be viewed as impossible. For example, genotype everyone at their first check up. This would complete the current “phylo-genetic” tree for our species and we can then test theories off this data set. Cont:

The system does change and new things come into being—yes/no? Therefore, I agree with you that humans did have intelligence similar to us (if not the same). Yet, were they all the same? Is everyone equally as smart, self aware, socially aware, etc? I would say no. The point of me saying veganism, it is a simple understanding which I have either A: collected from the mass unconscious / conscious and learned B: became aware because of an insight beyond what is "normal" or average. So, taking into consideration that there are different levels of thought, I argue that people who think outside the box are better. For whatever box is normal for them, it is this difference from the average. I argue that consciousness (i.e. mind) is actually derived by genes. Thus, I should not argue conscious or unconscious. Simply, we are a product of genes while others are different products of genes. It is this future science of study which will show us how the boxes are linked and we can fine tune consciousness.
