                                                      I have found this (actually on my ovn site tongue.gif)

Human Future

Humans will have big heads (brains), spindly limbs (disuse), bald heads (in progress), and no wisdom teeth or little toes (vestigial)?

Some scientists have researched that in the future we humans will have bigger heads (bigger brains). It will take around a million years for us to adapt this 'gift'. So im sure many of us will not be around to see it. Im guessing you have seen pictures of aliens, cartoons or photos. You may have noticed that what makes them look like aliens are their large heads. So may be in the future, we may become like out fat headed friend out there, i cant help imagining it could be humans visiting from the future... May be, but we will never know... Also some scientists believe that we may also evolve spindly limbs, bald heads, tiny toes and not grow any wisdom teeth.

1,000,000 years from now, what will we humans be eating?

Primates have been termed "an order of omnivores," and in this we are super-primates. Would a chimp taken on a whirlwind restaurant tour warm up to our staggering array of cuisines, from seafood to beef to rice to cheese? Maybe. The chimp would certainly be capable of eating most of these. But the chimp wouldn't have access to them! Our technology for procuring, cutting, cooking, storing and transporting foods gives us control over our environment a chimp in the wild couldn't dream of. "So, what will we humans be eating in 1,000,000 years? Anything we want!"

Human behavior in 1,000,000

The village cats are leaving with their kittens, horses are stampeding, cows are breaking out of barns, rats are roaming the streets in broad daylight, birds are singing at the wrong time of day? This could happen in the future! Such behaviors have been reported for centuries as precursors to earthquakes or volcanic eruptions, says zoologist John Downer in "Supersense." The animals may sense electrical changes in the air as rocks are stressed. Birds and elephants may hear the low-frequency rumblings-- inaudible to humans--of a quake on the way; snakes, keen to surface vibrations, may feel the tiny pre-tremors. Dogs too have this sort of emergency ESP--extra- sensitive perception--and stories abound of their heroism in wresting their special people out of bed before an earthquake or tornado hits, says "Exploring" magazine. Untrained dogs have also been known to warn their epileptic masters of an imminent seizure, up to an hour in advance and by one tally of family members, with 97 percent accuracy!

How is having a bigger head a gift? If you're implying the bigger brain is our gift, wouldn't it be a better gift if we could just utilize our entire brain with it's current size huh.gif

                                                      Kimm, where did that little lot from?

It's not the most scholarly investigation into the evolutionary future of humanity, is it?

                                                      Quick question, why not grow any wisdom teeth, I would have thought that one neat evolutional advantage would be permanently re-growing teeth, like sharks have.

A reason why I say that would be a good idea, is that a few years ago I had most of my front teeth knocked out, thanks to a brain-dead idiot. And I now have caps on the front lot.  It wold be an advantage to be able to regrow them.

                                                      And when you say that some scientists have decided that in the future we will all have bigger heads... and it will take around a million years for this to happen, and then you go on make the sad assertion that "many of us will not be around to see it."

What percentage of us, in your opinion, WILL be around to see it?

I mean, are we talking about only 5 or 10% of us who will be lucky enough to live a million years, or is the number even lower? As low as 2%?

                                                      i agree with Homer.  humans don't need a bigger head, we just need to utilize our present ones.  

i see humanity becoming more beautiful in the future.  you can see evolution in beauty from generation to generation- people just seem to look better than their parents did.  this is not always the case, but more often than not it is.  

all this talk about not using arms and legs in the future is nonsense.  look at models-  they use their bodies for sexuality.  i foresee that trend continuing.  even without work, people would still desire healthy and strong bodies.  makes for better sex and that is the driving force of youth.  humanity will never give up sex, so we will never give up our bodies.  

people will start to look more similar for a time as more and more races intermarry; however, i believe that certain traits will develop that are desirable to certain groups and we will see a diversification of races again- although never rivaling the diversity we have today.  there may be some groups that resist intermarrying, but i believe the effect will be achieved through gradual intermarrying with children of intermarried couples and members of the present races of mankind.  for example, some may find interracial marriages offensive, but they might not find marrying the offspring of an interracial marriage to be offensive.  as people become more similar looking through these types of marriages, the social norms will change.  for example, the ideal beauty will shift from blonde haired, blue eyed (hey, its not my ideal anyways but i think its the ideal represented by contemporary society) to a beauty that represents more of the masses.  fringe groups will be pressured to acquire traits that will make them more beautiful, thus promoting interracial marriages in an attempt to fit into the norm.  various varieties of olive skinned people will develop and from there, we will see certain traits that become the standards of beauty.  i think most of mankind will become one particular olive tone eventually- with a few groups of people committed to perpetuating the races as we know them today.  people will still look very different from one another as a result of recessive genes that periodically produce a child unlike the parents.  i believe the different eye colors will persist, as will different facial features and some unique traits.  

people will be most definitely smarter, but more importantly people will be even more human.  at some point in our future, we will embrace our humanity over our technology and experience some kind of a social revolution in thinking.  i can see AI becoming reality, as we hand over our daily grind to machines and large recreational classes develop.  people will work much less and spend more time enjoying life.   education will shift from IQ to EQ, as it becomes much more important for a person to be balanced emotionally and spiritually than to be a good employee.  crime will decrease as people seek to marry based on judging a person's emotional character.  unstable individuals who act improperly will be shunned and an elitist core of moral intellectuals will shape society.  you will be judged on your human qualities and character in everyday life.  

anyways, that's some of my idea of it.  i will save the others for my book original.gif                                                      

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                      Kimm,
Part of the title of this thread specifically states 'might be true', so we know you aren't arguing about facts here, and are merely posting a possibility. There is nothing wrong with that, and actually this is an old theory.

We are just having a little fun, that is all, so please don't take our sarcasm personally original.gif

                                                      Remember kids, a bigger brain means a bigger pelvis.  Without one, the babies don't make it out.  

As it is, a human baby's head is (on average) 102% the size of the pelvic opening.  Ask any of the lovely ladies around here what there thoughts would be on a baby having a head 115% the size of the pelvic opening.

And just how do these scientists propose that we support bigger heads and pelvises with smaller limbs?

                                                      Just means a lot more cesarean sections being performed.




Maybe it's a hospital conspiracy to make more money from all those needed cesareans.  laugh.gif
