Earlier, I was thinking about natural selection and how advancements in technology have hindered our ability to do it. My main example was prescription glasses and contacts. Think about how many people have to wear them because their eye sight isn’t good. What should happen is that people with bad eyesight should ~die off~, leaving people with good eyes to reproduce and put their good genes in the gene pool, eventually leading to people with better and better eyes. But we’re severely impairing that ability with glasses. I mean, fuck yeah am I glad I can see, but I feel bad for humans a couple thousand/hundred thousand years from now because they’re going to have to keep correcting their vision too because their dumb ancestors didn’t let nature take it’s course.
