Pick a tall spouse otherwise your great-great-great-great grandchildren will be dim-witted goblins

According to the predictions of an expert, humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years. The evolutionary theorist behind the call expects a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge, falling in line with HG Wells’ The Time Machine.

In a nutshell, smart, bare, coffee-skinned tallies with chin-receded manikin figures will be naturally selected, creating an evolutionary chasm from the miserably shrinking and neuronally-challenged shorties. For every inch the tallies make on their outer temple, they will pass up from their inner temple - losing all virtues such as empathy, love, trust and respect. And they’ll be hopeless at teamwork.

We will have a “super” race of micrognathic power forwards who can’t play for the team.

To say all this is a far cry may prove to be an astronomical understatement, it being based on limited information and extrapolation from transient, conditioned trends. But it’s a great read and some elements of it do make a little sense!

Human species ‘may split in two’
BBC News Oct 17 2006

Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics expects a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge.

The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said - before a decline due to dependence on technology.

People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added.
