I think the whole concept of natural selection is completely wrong. People who become highly educated, acquire good careers, and actually have something to contribute to society usually have to wait to have children. By the time they do have children they have an increased risk of birth defects or problems with pregnancy. On the other hand, it seems like any teen with half a brain, but able to screw, is able to get pregnant on the first try and have a completely normal baby. Unfortunately, these teens will have their babies, never go far in school, will take the scut jobs in the world and be total drains on society, while all the highly educated people who can't have kids end up paying high taxes to cover the medical care, food, etc. of these young societal black-holes. Natural selection is failing miserably.
