Evolution sucks?

What we may look like in 1000 years
Quote
- We’ll be TALLER at 6-7ft because of improved nutrition and medical science. Osteopath Garry Trainer, from north London, says: “The average American is about one inch taller than in 1960.”
- Our INTESTINES will get shorter so we don’t absorb as much fat and sugar — a natural way of avoiding obesity, says dentist Dr Philip Stemmer.
- If male fertility declines further, there will be SMALLER TESTICLES (tough luck, chaps).

Mind you, it means that I know a few people that seem to be ahead in the evolution stakes Cheesy

Re: Evolution sucks?

The evolution theory only works if people with shorter intestines are more successful at breeding than people with normal length intestines. Maybe there is a need for an additional question on the dating site information... "how long is your....?"

Well, it's kinda possible there.  Obesity can impact on your fertility so any mutations which improve your fertility could have a selective advantage.

So far that's not working with smoking and drinking.
Every time I see a large group of little screaming kids they're always followed by their Mum pushing a pram puffing a fag in her mouth. With their Dad trailing behind, can of beer in his hand.
Booze and fags are supposed to reduce fertility but they often seem to have the opposite effect.

Evolution tends to work over thousands of years, not decades Cheesy
