I think that guy needs to realize how big those eyeballs would be, and how impossible it would be in that size skull.

I'd imagine us to be more of a mix of different races. Almost the 'grey race'. Highly unlikely (imo) we'd still be white, black, asian etc.


mixed people tend to trend more towards white then black/brown/red/yellow in skin color. features often stay, but they nearly always go closer to caucasian skin color. And as you get 3rd and 4th generation mixes, the non caucasian skin colors will be more or less washed out. so outside of communities where mixed races is frowned upon and countries with less ethnic diversity, I fear the world will become mostly caucasian in the far future.

You can already see it a lot in America. look a how many people have indian genes and are considered indian according to the law, ten compare that with their features, most of them you can't tell are one quarter indian. much less when you get down to 1/8th.

This is actually bad for mankind, as a lack of diversity makes us far more vulnerable.

Tarsier monkeys disagree.

Anyway, if it were true, those stupidly oversized sunglasses that cover half of one's face, fancied mostly by "fashionable" brats, would finally have some merit.

Just to take my point further though.
When i talk about the 'grey race' i don't mean skin colour alone. More of a blanket covering skin colour, facial features, body shapes etc. So yes i do agree with what you're saying, i think my use of the term 'grey race' didn't quite put my point across as i intended.

What's the size of it's brain compared to a humans. Also a far larger part of it's eyeball is exposed compared to ours. if our eyeballs had been exposed that much, they would actually have popped out. They have nearly half the sphere outside, we don't even have one third exposed.

Yeah, granted, I suspect certain slavic areas, most of asia and large parts of Africa won't be "blended" as much though.unless things change rapidly in the future :) southern America may also stay somewhat un-mixed, But they're pretty mixed already outside of the native areas, and suspect they will be mixed in with the "spanish" soon enough.

When the next pandemic hits, a real proper one. this lack of diversity may lead to a lot more dead than otherwise. it's interestign how humans recognize the need for natural diversity in everything but themselves. on the other hand, if we where to force it, we'd be right back at apartheid and racism... :/ So I guess we'd better make sure our medical technology is top notch to prevent any padnemics :)

Makes me think how collosal squids keep their eyeballs with them at all times.

Not that I don't agree that this "prediction" is a rather bad attempt at trolling...

Me and my flying car would like to laud the predictions of the PhD holders of 40 years ago for their accurate predictions of life today.

By the way, I just lost my job in the sprocket factory, so if any of you are in the cogs business I would appreciate any news of job opportunities.

I would have thought they'd be more obese. Jabba the Hutt it a more accurate representation of where human development is going.


"Going"? For many , we're already there!

Look at Indians, we are mixing from 7000 years and we come in every color, size and features, Some can pass for Europeans and some look exactly like Africans. But i picture humans with Latin or Indian like looks in future.

not quite, future human will replace their brain with quantum chips, so the skull size will shrink instead.
