    Human race will 'split into two different species'

    I find this to be more humorous than serious.

    The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist.

    100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed.

    The alarming prediction comes from evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry from the London School of Economics, who says that the human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000.

    These humans will be between 6ft and 7ft tall and they will live up to 120 years.

    "Physical features will be driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility that men and women have evolved to look for in potential mates," says the report, which suggests that advances in cosmetic surgery and other body modifying techniques will effectively homogenise our appearance.

    Men will have symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and bigger penises, according to Curry in a report commissioned for men's satellite TV channel Bravo.

    Women will all have glossy hair, smooth hairless skin, large eyes and pert breasts, according to Curry.

    Racial differences will be a thing of the past as interbreeding produces a single coffee-coloured skin tone.

    The future for our descendants isn't all long life, perfect bodies and chiselled features, however.

    While humans will reach their peak in 1000 years' time, 10,000 years later our reliance on technology will have begun to dramatically change our appearance.

    Medicine will weaken our immune system and we will begin to appear more child-like.

    Dr Curry said: "The report suggests that the future of man will be a story of the good, the bad and the ugly.

    Variation is necessary for survival. Greater variation = fittest for survival. Some "pure", fixed concept of beauty will only result in it's own end.

    ...but, maybe that's just evolution in action.


    Good, related discussion:

    I think Curry looks like he could be Conan O'Brien's brother. I like Conan, so I would pick Curry over Einstein--a stictly manly opinion though.
