    A little too ... speculative, don't you think? I mean, there's no telling in what ways society will evolve, it's not just genetical.

    People would become choosier about their sexual partners...
    Yeah, like there's any basis in fact for that.

    He's certainly not talking about human males.

    this is a good base for a bit of concept art.

    Oh this could be possible, or we could split into three groups, or some strange genetic failure causes a de-evolution in our species, or our dependence in technology would be so great that in a thousand years, people would just be robots ith a bit of organic feel to it.

    who knows? just one coin in a bag...

    It sounds like someone needed to get payed so they decided to waste time by speculating something that doesn't really matter at all. It was good for a laugh though

    Women, on the other hand, will develop lighter, smooth, hairless skin, large clear eyes, pert breasts, glossy hair, and even features, he adds. Racial differences will be ironed out by interbreeding, producing a uniform race of coffee-coloured people.
    So women will become porn stars? Oh man, i can't wait!

    That man has some strange theorys.
    Mine are alot more realistic. Men will have nipples on their testicles and women will have penises on their breasts. Monkeys will evolve into wookies and slugs into hutts. A what the heck lets throw in some invisible cows too

    Such BS, the human race has been seperated into upper and lower classes for the past few thousand years and we still pretty much look the same. Not to mention, I'm pretty sure alot of people are already choosey about their sex partners. I seriously doubt, unless there is some large ecological change, that humans will physically morph to that extent (at any rate of time). Most differences in appearance comes from Geography, not Choice of sexual partners...

    From the comments on that page:

    "Women, on the other hand, will develop lighter, smooth, hairless skin, large clear eyes, pert breasts, glossy hair, and even features, he adds."

    So the guy's a fan of anime?

    @Rick:

    Yeah, his next paper will be about how thirteen-year-old girls will evolve short skirts and thigh-high socks, while men evolve tentacles.

    (Did I just say that out loud?)

    He carried out the report for men's satellite TV channel Bravo.
    Oh really?

    There are so many problems with his ideas.
    The fact that people can hide their ugly genes with plastic surgery, for one.

    Social skills, such as communicating and interacting with others, could be lost, along with emotions such as love, sympathy, trust and respect. People would become less able to care for others, or perform in teams.

    Physically, they would start to appear more juvenile. Chins would recede, as a result of having to chew less on processed food.
    That's suppose to happen in the future? Ain't that happening now?

    Do you think in the future they'll be able to draw better?
