Google to the rescue.

So it seems that while our heads are getting bigger our brains are getting smaller. And why am I not surprised? And what fills the empty space in our heads? Marshmallows I think. Here are the facts: 20% of Americans believe that the Sun revolves around the Earth

Our heads are getting bigger while our brains are shrinking.

Did the 20th century make us big-headed? Maybe so, since forensic anthropologists at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville found that white Americans’ heads are getting bigger and bigger…in size, that is.

The researchers studied about 1,500 skulls that dated from the mid-1800s through the 1980s. They noticed that the skulls gradually became larger, taller and narrower. As a result, faces have become longer

Humans' brains is shrinking
Filled with hot air?

While the human brain is shrinking.

A new study has confirmed what scientists have long believed to be the case – the human brain is shrinking.  For more than 7 million years the hominid brain has grown increasingly bigger, almost tripling in size.  But for the last 10,000 years, the human brain has been shrinking at an alarming rate and no one really knows why. New research has attempted to answer this question by examining size changes in specific regions of the brain. – See more at: http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-evolution-human-origins/scientists-are-alarmed-shrinking-human-brain-001446#sthash.lWdqQdAo.dpuf

Technology makes us dumber.
Why do we need brains if we have “smart” phones?

inhabitants built incredible buildings and cities with great precision and beauty, often with astronomical alignments that we are only just beginning to realize. Nowadays, technology has taken over, rendering our need to apply skill, creativity and memory virtually redundant. Instead of memorizing navigational routes we switch on our ‘sat navs’ and rather than storing phone numbers and addresses in our memory banks, we have them all in hand on our iPhones and Blackberries.  Our technology is evolving rapidly, but sadly it seems that we are not.  http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-evolution-human-origins/scientists-are-alarmed-shrinking-human-brain-001446

We emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1979. I am proud of my children who grew up here in America. America is truly a great country and I am trying to do what I can to keep America great. We the people need to participate in a Democracy. I think that in a Democracy we need to constantly be vigilant and work to uphold our way of life. I am fighting for the freedom of speech and expression and against all kinds of extremes including political correctness.
