Human species ‘may split in two’

Humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years’ time as predicted by HG Wells, an expert has said.

Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics expects a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge.

The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said – before a decline due to dependence on technology.

People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added.

The descendants of the genetic upper class would be tall, slim, healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative and a far cry from the “underclass” humans who would have evolved into dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like creatures.

  1. In other news, humanity may sprout antennae, use them to communicate using radio waves. Just something to watch out for.

    And now for the sports…

  2. What is with everyone assuming it will be two kinds?

    I see at least three.
    creative/intuitive
    Longevity/Logical
    spawning/working

    Additionally there will be differences depending on what gravity a genepool lives in.

  3. I see at least none because we’ll all be living in the kingdom of Heaven. Blah, blah, evolution is a lie!

    And now for the weather…

  4. Thee sines…
    Arht\there- as is thee foundatION.
    Our simple ingestion ov prepackaged filth over thee course ov aeons is enough to alter chromosomes…who’s to say intelligence is not thee same nature? ney tis a conCEPT. deCEPT ? but … FOOD for THOUGHT – we only use a small fraction ov our cognitive processor…a WHOPPING 10%. and we are no better then cavemen with highly adapt grunting method/s and weaponry…
    Ei do believe it’s a far cry to say 3000 years but i don’t believe this is TOO out there…go to a buffet or something you can already have a peak @ thee squat moronic goblinesque individuals.

  5. Any dumber subspecies will simply outbreed the smarter. Devolution has been in place already for quite some time- best bet’s on the herd.

  6. Ya, this is already happening in many ways??.there are a few studies out there that have shown to some degree that people naturally choose mates who are considered to be of the same ?attractiveness? level as them?.so some segregation does happen. But then there will always be exceptions, my favorite being, an ?ugly? guy with a lot of money so ?hot? girl goes for him?..and the pity couple, but he/she is so sweet, I felt bad for him/her, people like this get a kick out of being the more attractive one in the group and like to have that feeling of bettering the other ones life.

    Oh and then there is gene spinning! Create your baby, want blond hair okay, and blue eyes sure, you want a boy and he has to be 6?11 no problem.

  7. Yeah, I’m with Brenden. Lots of things *may* happen in 100,000 years. Why is this news?
