I'm watching Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs with the kids and I'm wondering if humans are slowly still evolving.
How about our bodies can handle bulk better now? Or develop better. Look at one of the greatest NBA stars of all time, Jerry West, then look at the build of an equal great like Michael Jordan. Jordan was a sculpted athlete but Jerry just looked like a skinny white boy playing amazing ball. Was it just because athletes these days hit the weights more than they did in the 70's? Might be a bad example. How about intelligence...
Are humans getting dumber? Are the kids graduating high school right now really less intelligent or do they just seem that way? There are exceptions obviously, but I see too many unmotivated, lazy, helpless, youth these days. Or is it just because parents these days just don't seems to care? Is it because parents don't want their kids to be raised in the same conservative, old school fashion that they were? If you spank your kids now, prepare for a visit from DCF.
So is it that we are evolving to a lazier form or that kids have too many rights?
Maybe our evolution is self created. As we ignore the warnings and contribute to Global Warming are we going to slowly change? Will we slowly develop more sweat glands? Will we start to have less hair? I know I already have less hair on my head but I've gained more on my ears.
One day we may have the same climate as Venus as the ozone layer breaks down, and future Earthlings will have to study what life was like before the Heat Age. I really hope my bones don't end up on display in a museum.
