Women may think of men as primitive, but new research indicates that the Y chromosome — the thing that makes a man male — is evolving far faster than the rest of the human genetic code.

We may be evolving ‘faster’ than women.

The question is, what are we evolving into?

Is is better or worse than what we are now?

Dude seriously this research is done by “scientists” thereforwe its worthless drivel, someone isjust justifying their grant cash.

This really should be on Oprah or whatever talk shows are on tv now if they still have talk shows.

Haven’t seen one in years.

Ahh, that’s just because you men have so much further to go before you reach the level we women are on. ;-)

The gender under the most stress/pressure/demands will indeed evolve faster.

Why do men die younger? Stress, pressure, demands...

Pressure and time make diamonds, they also fire-up adaptation, growth, or evolution.

Just a theory, just put’n it out there.

I’ve heard that in male liberal metrosexuals, the “Y” chromosome is actually evolving into an “X”.

Men aren’t evolving faster than women. We’re becoming women. Look around. Any male who insists on being a man will either remain unemployed, or lose his job soon if he’s lucky enough to have one.

“There were even entire genes on the human Y chromosome that weren’t on the chimp, said Hughes, also of the Whitehead Institute.”

No doubt someone will ask if that news has anything to do with:

“The Nephilim were on the Earth in those days, and also afterwards, when the sons of God mated with the daughters of men and they bore children for them: these were the heroes of old, the men of renown.” (Genesis)

“it’s because the “Y” chromosome has so much farther to go....”

Following in the path and tone you set:

Why does it take a million sperm to fertilize one egg.

I hate sensationalist “science” reporters. Men are not evolving. Living things mutate. Favorable mutations surviving when others without them die off is adaptation. Evolution doesn’t happen for a long, long time after that, if you follow the scientific school of thought. No single being, group, or generation of living things can evolve.

Perhaps the Y chromosome is trying desperately to get rid of the metro sexual male.....it leads to a dead end....I like men, but the metro sexual is a wussy....

A coincidence?
