We're downgrading ourselves!!!!  The becoming more evolved and therefore smarter of the human race is being reversed.  My example proof: touch typing.  

Our education used to have higher levels...now...not so much.  A simple thing of touch typing equals a type of instinct that worked.  But now we have this thing of flat screen typing without feedback becoming more and more prevalent.  In recent years, I've noticed people typing in ways that wasn't touch typist style.  Ok, so they didn't learn the typical typing keyboard.  So, they were still typing without watching their fingers.  My father was a programmer and let me tell you, thought their typing wasn't typical typing words...they were still touch typists.  Now...though...with the whole flat surface typing thing becoming more and more prominent, I'm wondering...is the taught instinctual typing gone????  Hubby just pointed out that nobody types touch wise, but watch their fingers.  The flat non-feedback typing just emphasizes that everyone watches their fingers, which in turn slows us down in our typing whatever our thoughts are trying to spew out.  Is that really making things better for human evolution????


P.S.  Extra tipsy, but I'm really believing we're being steadily dumbed down. :( :(
