Humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years' time as predicted by HG Wells, an expert has said.<br />
<br />
Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics expects a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge.<br />
<br />
The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said - before a decline due to dependence on technology.<br />
<br />
People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added.<br />
<br />
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.

Wow. That sounds scary. 2 races? No emotions? NO CHINS?

I think this is a bunch of baloney. Seriously, all because we will become more <i>choosier </i>in the choice of our partners? Please...

Meh it's possible..then again watch any movie from the 50's regarding life in year 2000 and you won't be so confident in the words of futurists.

That, however, depends on the (false) assumption that attractive people are more intelligent, and vice-versa.

A few references to the movie Time Machine, based on the original book written by H.G Wells.

I think the earth will be over within 100 years anyway, WW3 will most likely be the end of mankind...Bombs with 1,000 miles radiuses going off all over...<br />
<br />
And ww3 doesnt seem to far off. I wouldn't be surprised if we are still alive when mankind dies out. <br />
<br />
Just my honest opinion.

I'm saying that mankind dying out will probably be in our lifetime. Meaning we will live to see "the end of the world"..<br />
<br />
I dunno how to explain it, lol.
