Wow, all that in 1000 years. Too bad we have no way of knowing how much we've changed in our previous 1000 years. Oh, wait....
2012-10-06 04:57:27 AM  
Yeah. Maybe 100,000 years.
2012-10-06 05:38:51 AM  
Well that was incredibly stupid.

What will the page 3 girls look like then?

Complete and utter pish. If it was anyone other than The Sun I might make a comment about it being a new low.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Oh for fark's sake BIOLOGY DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY

Yup, that was going to be my rant too. Do they really think that using iPhones is going to be a selection criteria?
2012-10-06 08:32:19 AM  
I thought it was just religion the media was so clueless about. I see science is part of the group of topics the media has absolutely nothing useful to speak of. Evolution doesnt follow a logical pathway based on transient social trends. we have many traits that serve no purpose simply because there was no selection against it. if evolution followed a logical plan it would be called intelligent design. and lets not go there.
Maybe the media should just stick to entertainers and their drug addictions.

This article is obviously mistaken since at some point someone would have to have sex with someone who looks something like that... and obviously that won't happen.
2012-10-06 08:32:41 AM  
I can't fap to this.
2012-10-06 08:33:07 AM  
I particularly like the bit about how we're going to somehow have smaller brains because of computers.

Computers have been responsible for the EXPANSION of knowledge more so than perhaps any other tool in history.
2012-10-06 08:33:30 AM  
So I guess in the year 3000 everyone will be looking for "My Precioussssssssss....."
2012-10-06 08:33:32 AM  
Probably not. The large population and the interbreeding of people from different parts of the world are brakes to evolution.

The biggest change should be that we all look the same, but that won't be much different than what we look like now. Some smaller outlier groups with distinct appearances may disappear like South African Bushmen or Australian Aborigines. Polynesians may not be so diabetes prone. I suspect they will be like everyone else. White people will probably be gone, and so will really black people.

Unless something awful happens, then all bets are off.

'Smaller brains, more wrinkles, fewer teeth'

So they'll all be Republicans?
2012-10-06 08:37:52 AM  
In the year 4545, however, you ain't gonna need your teeth. Won't need your eyes. You won't find a thing to chew. Nobody's gonna look at you.

Well, not YOU, specifically, since you'll be dead, but, you know. . . .

Evolution implies that people with unwanted genetic traits or diseases will not be reproducing, how are we going to selectively breed If these traits? If we can't then we'll never "evolve" past what we are. We'll just keep bandaging our bodies and living longer with them. All the while making more of us that will all be allowed to reproduce with the same defective parts.
2012-10-06 08:45:11 AM  
The year 3000? Pfft. We will have killed each other off long before then.

Oh, yeah, and the last sentence is a nice touch:

And there will be darker skin as people move around the planet and races mix.

...as opposed to the light skin all people enjoy today, right, Sun?

FTFA: Osteopath Garry Trainer, from north London, says: "The average American is about one inch taller than in 1960."

This isn't true: Americans stopped growing in average height about 50 years ago and recent evidence says that because of poor childhood nutrition we are getting shorter -- and fatter. This from a 2004 article in The New Yorker titled "The Height Gap: Why Europeans are Getting Taller -- and Americans Aren't":

But sometime around 1955 the situation began to reverse. The Germans and other Europeans went on to grow an extra two centimetres a decade, and some Asian populations several times more, yet Americans haven't grown taller in fifty years.

The average American man is only five feet nine and a half-less than an inch taller than the average soldier during the Revolutionary War. Women, meanwhile, seem to be getting smaller. According to the National Center for Health Statistics-which conducts periodic surveys of as many as thirty-five thousand Americans-women born in the late nineteen-fifties and early nineteen-sixties average just under five feet five. Those born a decade later are a third of an inch shorter.

Someone needs to explain the difference between adaptation and evolution to these people, and then slam their heads together.
2012-10-06 08:48:49 AM  
So women will be selecting for ugly, hairless, tiny penis, strange looking men?

More likely we will have good looking idiots who can just about function in life and can get laid...

What do the women look like who will want these supermen?
