Men not becoming extinct after all?

St. Louis Dispatch reports:

Scientists used to think that men might become extinct, that people might have to find new ways to have sex, and that we might evolve into a new species, all as a result of the demise of the Y chromosome.

But a new study by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis and the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Mass., has determined that the Y is here to stay. The landmark research is the first to explore the contents of the Y chromosome of any species. The results appear in today’s issue of the journal Nature.

  1. We’re not extinct yet, and we’ll go down fighting, you alien bastards.



  2. Nice one! Ever considered a career in stand up comedy Brenden?

  3. I will accept this compliment in the spirit in which it was given.

    By plotting revenge.

  4. My freind says in 50 or less years this earth of human people will be extint!
    Is man kind going to end?
    My thoery is life will most definatley not just end.
    We’ve gone from different stages in life to get to this form like homosapian, homo erectus, and now man. Maybe we will become more efficient!
    I believe that it will take more then 50 years for us to die off!
    more like a couple 1000.
    theres way to many healing solutions and computerized technoligy to make men become rare.

    MEN are becoming extinct, not MAN.

    Soon women will no longer need or want men. Within 50 years sex as we know it today will be obsolete, in fact repugnant to many women. Cloning , artificial insemination and in-vitro fertilization make it possible for women to dispel any need for men. Once men are no longer neede for sex they are as good as extinct already, for this was the one thing that they had to offer society that was unique to their gender.

    Brace yourselves, guys! Anyone who doesn’t see that this is coming is hiding their heads in the sand.
