The logical thing would be to assume that humankind also evolves.

I do not know if it has been proven yet or not, but really, the smart thing to do is to assume that it will happen if it hasn't already.


this is actually a fairly interesting point imo.

evolution of humankind. i feel like from a biological sense of how other species evolve (taking the most basic concept of biological evolution to be change in inherited characteristics through successive breeding) it is difficult to pinpoint what our species is choosing to be the most successful biological characteristics. to illustrate...most other species including say bacteria will adapt and evolve to make the entire strain of bacteria stronger and those traits are passed on..you can see this in mammalian species when there is the 'alpha' male who is selected through strength trials to be the only one to do the mating. how does humankind choose the most successful characteristics? survive-ability? social construct? definitely a number of factors outside of other biological species.

Humankind does evolve.

Recently many people have been born without Deciduous teeth (completely).
Humans are evolving towards not having them since dental care and toothbrushes have made their use (Deciduous teeth) obsolete.

Yeah, that just bugged me.

Anyway, on topic, what's the most fun experiment you've ever gotten to do, Bioalchemist? And please, give us the details.

Human kind will evolve very slowly, because we have pretty much eliminated survival of the fittest, and thus eliminated natural selection, and natural selection is pretty much the definition of evolution. Now any evolution human kind makes is pretty much based on societal norms. However one evolution I see in the future is that we will become polarized in our looks. There will be a group of extremely attractive people, and a group of not attractive people, with almost nothing in between.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

Not really

If unattractive people never reproduce, then they won't pass on their genes.
If people prefer to have sex with attractive people, than unattractive people (in the sense of what we currently call unattractive) will simply disappear.
There won't be a group of unattractive people, there just won't be unattractive people at all.

Acutally, I heard that unattractive ppl breed attractive children. Something about variability in the gene pool. Someone should check up on that.
