Note that this prediction comes via the Daily Mail--not exactly a publication noted for its scientific accuracy.The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist.
100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed.
The alarming prediction comes from evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry from the London School of Economics, who says that the human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000.
Oliver Curry is not an evolutionary biologist either; he seems to be more of a philosophy major: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Curry
Does anyone know whether this guy has any background in genetics or evolutionary biology? I'm unsure of what the study of 'evolutionary psychology' entails.Oliver Curry is a research associate at the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science in the London School of Economics. He is an evolutionary theorist. His Ph.D., on the topic of morality as natural history, was awarded by the Government Department of the London School of Economics, where he now teaches Political Theory.
As an evolutionary psychologist, Curry also contributed to the secular morality segments of the television documentary, The Root of All Evil?, in which Richard Dawkins argues that the world would be better off without religion.
