The future of science

It has always been the case and probably always will be that if you sitting here now try to "reinvent the wheel" when looking at a science fact (for example) you will fall very far short so most people don’t do it and almost everyone who does is wrong.

Only every so often is an individual smarter (even in a limited area) than the (admittedly not perfect) sum of humanity before him. That is both natural and the exceptions are likely to be a diminishing group until one day it is basically zero forever.

What will that mean for us?

Interesting. Perhaps the scientists and philosophers will then find that the theologians were right all along?

Interesting thought. But IQ scores are rising. Information, intelligence (a bit), and number of people (more exeptions), are increasing too.
