I doubt what this guy is saying is going to happen; with all the interbreeding and the different dominait traits being thrown around in the entire genepool we will most likely all be infected with maddness traits. naw.... However wouldn't we be hangin' out in outerspace by then? I bet by then we would at least terraformed Mars. Or maybe a moon of Jupitar or something... Dear Alien Embryo. Yeah, I am skeptical too, when it comes to speculations about future evolution. We are already 5000 years past due for the start of the next Ice Age. I believe that the most useful trait of human beings is ad... [More]

.The logical outcome would be two sub-species, "gracile" and "robust" humans similar to the Eloi and Morlocks foretold by HG Wells in his 1895 novel The Time Machine.

I definately agree that the human species may split off... and for the reasons laid out here. I really don't forsee it happening as soon as they say... I rather expect we'll wipe ourselves out before any of this process really begins to display results.

What about a culture similar to the Amish, if their way of living remained unchanged for years? Some how I just don't see why they would fall into either category.

I just read an article which stated that in 20,000 years we will all be dark (skined) and intiligent except, there will be the has nots, so to speak. Now I know this sounds obsourd, almost like a movie, but reality is, what reality does. Think about that.

Someone's look depends on the way they treat themselves and appreciate life. An intelligent person knows that they should eat healthy food (not fast food everyday), do exercise or choose to walk when possible, avoid using too much drugs when ill, express himself as a human being by looking good (higher level of hygienes)... Whereas someone who doesn't have much social intelligence will retract into interracting with others using the computer, and use devices that makes live too easy. This passivity can make the person evolved in that direction. The lower race might include super-intelligent pe... [More]
