We are all a minority of one when it comes to the sum total of our opinions.

When the planet gets to 20 or 50 billion and there is standing room only and half rations of everything, and no entertainment and only horizon to horizon buildings, and grinding, hopeless poverty then billions of people will vollinteer to go to the stars. It could easily turn out like African slave ships where only half the people make it. Or it could be that only one in ten ships makes it to where they were going. But, the point is still valid, population pressure will push people into space and it is not so hard from there to sending people in mass out into the stars.

True, an apocolypse could visit the human race... Yellowstone might blow, or a comet might hit us, or some 100% deadly plague might evolve, but... I doubt it. There will always be a handful of people who escape to start again, IMHO.
I just wanted to rmind you that space is huge and theres tons of dangers when your traveling through space. Ill leave it at that

This actually has some truth to it, but not because of Evolution, or Adaptation. But, because of.... Transportation!!!

With the ability to fly anywhere in the world within a day, the mixing of the various ethnicities has started to increase quickly.

I tend to agree that within a couple hundreds of years, most people will be a light to medium brown, with medium brown to black hair, with brown eyes.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

The geneticist/anthropologist Spencer Wells also said the same thing in one of his National Geographic films (which are online). I forget which documentary it was but he said he wasn't exactly sure what we would look like in the future, "but we won't look like me".

Skin pigmentation may have some evolutionary advantages, protection from UV rays or vitamin D absorption, but eye and hair pigmentation have no such characteristics, they are only useful for sexual selection. Whether the alleles for depigmenation survives into the future, I have no idea. But demographically, the odds are against it.

Why would our skin revert pigmentation towards the original colours? We have already came from african decent into anglo saxons why would it reverse itself?
I just don't see the necessary purpose of colour pigmentation back towards to where it started from.
It wouldn't be evolution it would be more down to the world interbreeding races (no issue) but that is not evolution it is genetics.

Mental Compacity or Skin mass/texture are still my best bets tbh. Our mental state is already evolving hence it would be the next thing in mass evolution imo.

why is everyone so &^%$ing concerned with "the end"...
new beginnings is what you should be concerned about...

Pinky fingers are pretty essential for playing guitar chords ..  i'll pass on the six finger for now. I wonder if we are getting a little dumber in a way (maybe it's just me) since we have been using our hands much less than in the past . ? Everyone did Something ...  with their hands..  We MADE things ? We finally made so many things that now, we don't have to...  Someone Else makes our things .

I predict that human's will evolve an extra finger if the human race survives another 250,000-500,000 more years or so. Mutations is even happening now.

We will evolve an extra finger because we use our fingers so much. Once we recive our extra finger we will also unlock more of our brain powers.


We have more brain powers but that is another topic...

And I predict that in the same amount of time we will evolve a prehensile tail.
I challenge you to see who'll be proven right.

I prefer vastly to have a tail, rather than a sixth (useless) finger!
It would be much much usefull! We could have our hands free while talking to the phone, or we could finally scratch that itchy and unreachable spot on our back!
That would be a jump on evolution!

Which one would you prefer to have, a furry tail or a bare one?
