Human race will 'split into two different species'
Daily Mail ^ | 26th October 2007 | NIALL FIRTH

Posted on 10/28/2007 7:11:09 AM PDT by Bringbackthedraft

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.

Just re-positing what Wells (The Time Traveler) and many other socialists have been saying for the last hundred years.

I guarantee that it will not happen this way. Events are happening too fast, technological change is accelerating too much, we will quickly move out into the universe. Humanity is likely to split into numerous sub-species, become part of a human-machine synthesis, or go extinct.

re: # 1

The report claims that after they reach their peak around the year 3000 humans will begin to regress. He's off over a thousand years -- the regression to ugly began when the Demorat Party was fiormed. If you don't believe it, just takle a look at, Maxine Waters, Reid, Pelosi, Kennedy, John Lewis, Hillary Clinton, and the list goes on.

100,000 years from now? LOL, it hardly seems 'news' - it's how liberal dems like Hil already consider themselves as aspiring to be this ruling elite, lording it over the dim-witted 'conservative' (always said with a sneer) peons, and the lower level leftie sheeple. But having a 'scientist' say it will help the idea along. Hence the need for all the contraceptive 'help' for the underlings. Didn't the Nazis also think like this? And the Soviets? Etc...

But we see the lesser species now, let’s take it out.
My bad, the World Bank handles that by saying ‘no contraceptive, no moolah and no debt forgiveness’.

Yep, never too early to set up the meme for eugenics.

Ask Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao...

All we need are more ‘sustainable development, overcrowding, food and water shortage, cloning, engineering studies, etc. (pinging the UNPFA).

according to Curry in a report commissioned for men's satellite TV channel Bravo

Bravo a mens' channel? More like gay man's channel.

I do agree with his assessment about race. I figure in the next 1000 to 2000 years, race will no longer be delineated.

I really don't understand how larger penis sizes would indicate a super race. Human penises are more utilitarian than other mammals. If women's breast are "perkier" would this indicate that women stay fertile longer?? It sounds somewhat made for the people who watch Bravo and Oh!.

I for one, do not think that this is very likely. One thing that we know from human history, is that humans from different social groups always interact sexually when they are in proximity to one another. This cuts across barriers of race, culture, class or caste. Even a relatively few pairings per generation will prevent a split in the human species. The only thing that might cause such a split would be complete geographical isolation.

Once we learn how do do a computer to human brain interface and store our intelligence on-line, look for a shared consciousness, not unlike the Borg. I also see a human machine fusion. Arthur C. Clarke wrote about this concept in “2001: A Space Oddessy”—IMHO, a very prophetic book.

Interesting. I always thought that because the world gets smaller by the minute, eventually there would be a massive amalgamation.

If this guy is right, I hope the goblins don’t emerge dominant. Will they be called morlocks?

Whatever’s going to happen on this subject is going to happen a lot faster than the author predicts. In one hundred years or less, people will start actively tinkering with the human genome for the benefit of their offspring. Maybe it will start with the rich, maybe it will start with a kind of bio-hacker. Who knows. But it will start, and it will spread, wiki-fashion, through the population. I don’t think there’s going to be 2 distinct groups. More like 2 thousand. Or maybe 2 million.

A couple of centuries from now the earth is going to be littered with an ungodly mess of various kinds of Children of Men.

(Just my prediction.)

Not possible. The ruling elites (liberals) are not breeding their replacements, but the uglies (the Christians/Jews/Muslims) are.

So I predict ... more Islamofacism.

This is as loopy as telling us what the climate will be like in 100 years!

I think that any “splitting up” of the human race could only happen if transportation is stopped. As long as people can move their DNA around freely, a distinct race won’t develop. But isolate people in a geographic area for long enough, then drift may cause some significant differences.

To a degree it’s happening. It’s not quite as political as most of us think, but it’s reasonably close.

Those who are really wealthy (and there’s nothing wrong with that) from both sides of the aisle, have quite a bit in common. Their social circles certainly do intertwine like a bad strand of DNA. This particular circle does not only comprise of the wealthy cognitive elitists, blue-blood Republicans, etc.

If you have ever had the “opportunity” to visit someone living in a wealthy gated community, you will really see this.

I agree. The English have a strange way of looking at technology. (i.e., Dr. Who)

The next 30 years is going to be a whirlwind of technological advancement with the ultimate merging of humanity with technology. After that, I think it's impossible to know what's going to happen. We may not be capable of comprehending it.

I agree. I don't know if it's quite as political, but I can really see some trying or hoping to politicize it, especially in socialist circles, nanny state thinking.

Those who are really wealthy (and there’s nothing wrong with that) from both sides of the aisle, have quite a bit in common.

I don't see anything wrong with that, per se, the beef I have is with those who do look down their noses at the rest of us. Sure, it's likely to happen between various groups. I mean the kind who fail to see their 'help' staff as people, etc.

Their social circles certainly do intertwine like a bad strand of DNA.

I, too, have seen the really blue bloods and also some very 'hick' folks.

It's funny to read of, or see on Law & Order, lol, a blue blood hobnobbing on the down low with, for example, cheap hookers - how sometimes someone in a particularly elite group will be drawn to the lifestyle of someone in a very different group.

From my observations; the human race has already degenerated into several sub species. But it’s taboo to even suggest such a thing.

Given that the signal characteristic of speciation is inability to interbreed, I'd say this is more than a little unlikely. That aside, we shouldn't be too certain that the silly old socialist Wells had the good guys and the bad guys in the right order or for the right reason. Neal Stepehenson made a fair case that the Morlocks were the good guys in In The Beginning Was The Command Line. John Edwards strikes me as a pretty representative Eloi - cover-girl pretty and as useless as teats on a bull. If that's the direction the human race is headed I'm awfully glad I won't be there to see it.

It’s not ncessarily the trailer living trash that are reproducing more (although they may be happening in some places). Instead, it’s Bible believing, strong families who are conservative in orientation. They are having more children and are able to properly raise them to perpetuate a civilized concept of society. So, the future is really brighter than this article presupposes, unless we allow ourselves to be overrun with low-IQ peasant midgets who haven’t come that far from their pagan-worshipping, human-sacrifcing, troglodyte ancestors and who refuse to assimilate and want to eradicate the superior American culture and language. This is exactly what is currently happening because the mentally deficient elite, who while indoctrinated at elite universities, are deficient in thinking ability and tend to embrace mindless socialism and multiculturalism and an amorphous “peace” as a remedy for everything because it “feels” right and not because they can analyze anything more complicated politically than the scientific equivalent of boiling water. Oh, and yes, they hate everything American, Western, civilized and Jewish (including Israel) or Christian.

That is the thing with a lot of people who deride or insult people they believe to be beneath them. Don't they realize that to another, they're the 'lesser' human?

Sort of suggests that if you wish to be respected, you should respect others.

Subspecies have distinct, unique characteristics. Human 'races' (if that is what you're getting at) don't have that, although some characteristics are more common in one group than the next. They closest you would get would be very small groups of people with genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, but then you would have to separate that very tiny group from its larger one ('race') and make it is own subspecies, which is not such a great idea, because people with cystic fibrosis (or other genetic diseases) would probably marry and have children with non-cystic fibrosis people, and their children would have a cystic fibrosis allele and a non-cystic fibrosis allele. Only if you sequestered (or quarantined) a group of pure cystic fibrosis carriers, would you create a group that might be considered a full-fledged subspecies--which could merge into the mainstream society and their subspecies disappear (as other freepers here have posted, it's about segregation; if you segregate a population, they could eventually turn into a subspecies or another species. Without segregation that is not probably going to happen).

It isn't just because it's non-PC (which it is) to make that suggestion, it's also an irrational suggestion not based on scientific observation and research.
