Well, that’s it, I’ve now officially heard IT ALL. I thought when I found out that people didn’t believe we actually went to the Moon and that Mayor Nagin said that he wanted a “chocolate city” that I had heard it all but this takes the cake. According to a Daily Mail article:
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.
After reading this article I actually felt some of my brain matter dissolve into my cranium. I don’t want to get into a whole evolution v. creation argument here but there is no scientific proof or even any hard evidence to suggest that we used to be apes.
Putting that aside–how about the picture of our future this quack has painted? Some of us will evolve into “dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures.” Like maybe….
Yikes! Dr. Curry may be on to something.
And then he says that the rest of us will be his version of perfect–men will have symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and be well endowed and women will have glossy hair, hairless skin and “pert” breasts. Like maybe….
This is Dr. Candace Pert. She discovered receptors in the brain that respond to heroin. Weird.
I suppose the men will look like…
This man must be a comedian. Here he is on the left:
He is the one with the dim-witted goblin-like grin on his face, not the one that looks like a young Dan Rather. He has contributed to a television documentary “The Root of all Evil?” which argues that the world would be better off without religion. Hmmmmm…agenda much?
I was going to get on here and slam him and talk about what an obvious moron, agenda-driven, quack he is, but then I saw a more recent picture of his son and now I see where he gets his theories. Here his son is pictured at a rally for nudism…
So sorry Dr. Curry–didn’t mean any offense. You are clearly right on target. But do I have to wait 100,000 years for those good changes you mentioned?
