Trance750: 'Smaller brains, more wrinkles, fewer teeth'

So they'll all be Republicans?

Thank you. That article is stupid.

Proteios1: if evolution followed a logical plan it would be called intelligent design.


Or eugenics, or gene therapy.

They took that artwork straight from my family album. Doctor it up all you wish, but I know my wife when I see her. Poor dear is in tears over this.

Amazing amount of BS passed off as science by this esteemed publication..

I suspect we will look more like the current population of Brazil--an attractive blending of various racial characteristics. The males will wear pointy shoes. The females will have major foobies. Everyone will be the color of cafe au lait. None of us will ever know. 

I'm sad now.

Meh. 500 years from now, genetic engineering will be commonplace. We'll be whatever we damn well want and to hell with evolution.

Based on that photo, I'd say alien encounters are more likely to be human time travelers from the year 4000.

Advancements in nutrition?

Exactly what I came here to say

The race mixing thing is probably true and MAYBE the height thing (if the obesity epidemic due to poor nutrition trend changes, which it probably won't). And possibly the shorter intestines, but the rest is absolutely retarded.

2012-10-06 09:32:45 AM  
Humans have gotten larger as food production has allowed, because increased muscle was a selector for survival. Since we've invented computers and robots, the ability to perform big muscle work is no longer going to be a genetic advantage. We're already beginning to shrink, even though our diets are richer than ever, because we are requiring our bodies to do less work every day. Our distance vision will probably get worse from staring at computers all day, as well.

Their prediction (although dumb) is due to scientific advances from now through then. So the prev 1000 years is moot.

We're shrinking because we're eating like shiat. Our genetics allow us to be taller. Since just about anyone can find someone to screw there's very little natural selection going on.

I suspect men will be taller. That seems to be the primary trait we're breeding for.

Women...well, women will be resistant to Monsanto's chemicals, because the ones that weren't will be infertile. I suspect in 100 years the population will be constant simply because of the huge percentage of couples who can't have kids. If you're infertile, doesn't matter what the rest of your traits are, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

So what is an actual selection pressure that we face today? How about driving skill? We had a highway fatality of a young-ish girl recently. She's not passing on any of those slow reaction time genes.

"fingers will increase because of the greater use of devices such as iPhones that need complex eye-hand coordination."

If we're going to be using iPhones in 1,000 years we might as well just freaking end it now.

It'll be twice as thin with 2" of greater screen real estate and a battery life of at least several hours by then, so at least there's that.
