    What would the next level of human evolution look like?

    If humans evolved again into a higher species, is there any idea of what they'd look like or how they'd behave?

    They would look like this, and protect a humanity that fears and mistrusts them. Then they would go on to star in some pretty mediocre movies.

    Humans will evolve big eyes, thin arms and alarmingly small genitals. Their brains will increase in size by a factor of seven and they will travel back in time to insert probes into the anuses of failed authors. That's been proven by science.

    We are evolving into shapeless blobs with useless legs, and a mouth that can feed on a steady diet of fat and sugar...we will be dependent on mechanical means to transport us. Just like those fat humans in Wall-E.

    P.S. This would be an excellent CHOW subject.

    I think you managed to capture about three common misconceptions about the study of evolution in only two sentences...

    Evolution is a response to a changing environment. Given that we've learned to control our environment, no further evolution is likely. Any environmental changes that occur that we cannot control will take place so rapidly that extinction is a more likely result.

    A better question might be, what creature now living, will evolve to take our place?

    Of Course. Though I do love the bumper sticker that imagines Every monkey evolving into a person, and does so with indignation.

    That only accounts for natural selection, we still have sexual selection and genetic drift to shape us into increasingly cosmetic forms. Don't forget that beneficial mutations that decrease chances of heart disease, diabetes, increased resistance to hiv etc. would increase our survivability, and probably be passed on. Our population is so enormous though that it's hard for anything to take effect.

    oh, and

    I believe the world will eventually be taken over by insanely horny religious zealots who want to live forever. Scientists at gunpoint will make them immortal and that will be the next evolution.

    Have a nice day.

    Women Getting More Beautiful

    The rate of evolutionary change has increased in the past 40,000 years, and in the last 10,000 years, since the development of agriculture: link.

    To synthesize that information: we are approaching an age of numerous, incredibly beautiful women, and we are developing to that point faster than we ever have before.
    I don't know about you, but I'm excited about that.
