By this logic deciding not to have children is a mental illness.
I dunno. If you have a profound genetic flaw I suppose there could be rational reasons for not procreating. Otherwise, its pretty textbook mentally ill to deliberately end your own lineage, yeah.

The APA published a paper from a "known nazi" Kirkegaard. Man the introduction page is quite a whooper. Its like 20 redpills in less than 1 page of text.

Fun Fact: Jews today are not the chosen people. Jews before the time of Jesus were the chosen people. Jews living today are the descendants of those that rejected Christ, and thus are no longer the chosen people. They are the Synagogue of Satan.

IQ (and all the variables that go with it) heritability increases with age (up to 80% at 25 where it plateaus).

As long as they work on making super babies, that's cool. It's when they start working on zombie virus that I'm starting to get worried.

some thoughts.

Single point of IQ gain is ~$800/yr increase in income by adulthood.

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), when used to pick the best embryo based on predicted intelligence of the embryo's DNA using standard deviation of 15...
* between 1-2 embryos its estimated to raise IQ by 4
* between 1-10 embryos its 11
* between 1-100 its 19

So a single IVF procedure is $10k. even choosing between only 10 zygotes, you get $12,600 per year in increased income.
