Human species 'may split in two'

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6057734.stm


Humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years' time as predicted by HG Wells, an expert has said.

Funny...

And, in any event, I live in So. California. We are already split into the beautiful and the ugly.

Unless there's an aggressive health conscious movement in the future, humans will more likely resemble "Jabba the Hut" than anything else!

Sex without the fear of getting pregnant.

Expert?

Say, doesn't "expert" imply some level of "experience"

Just what makes one an "expert"... "theorist"?

One interview by CNN or FOX and you become an expert.

I heard an interview with a DNA researcher the other night and he said that we are only about 98% identical, as opposed to the 99.9% or so previously suspected. Could be some branching off w/o extensive interbreeding (be still my foolish heart).
