The First Dysgenics Awards
Whose genes did we lose in 2022 that made our species weaker?
Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species' chances of long-term survival.
However, we at ISF think there should be a Dysgenics Award equivalent!
That is to say, who are the best people humanity lost in the previous year?
More specifically, who was selected out of the gene pool? Hence, there are some obvious rules:
The person did not reproduce, or:
The person was sterilized. Also:
The person demonstrated excellence in some socially desirable sense (they were not, for example, excellent ax murderers).
ISF puts the question to you, our readers.
You can submit a candidate in the comments below until the end of February.
You must provide evidence of either (1) or (2), and (3).
ISF will award the best nomination with a $250 Amazon gift card (or whatever your chosen currency is).
If the same person is nominated more than once and we decide they likely had the “best” genes, the winner will be the person who nominated them first.
We will announce the winner in early March.
Do remember that this is very much tongue-in-cheek, just like the Darwin Awards. We don’t want any autists in the comments calculating that Joe Bloggs’ IQ and GFP were 75.78% more likely to beat Alan Smith’s.
One of the bonus questions we’ve started asking our podcast guests is, who is the most intelligent person you’ve ever met? That’s the type of exclusive content only our supporters can access. Sign up today!
