Obviously Never Read the Book


So scientists are saying that 100,000 years from now the human race will have split into two species, a superior race of intelligent, beautiful people and a race of low intelligence goblin-like servitors.

They compare this to the eloi and the morlocks of HG Wells' The Time Machine. Not a very good comparison really. He describes the Eloi as In the 1895 book, the human race has evolved into two distinct species, the highly intelligent and wealthy Eloi and the frightening, animalistic Morlock who are destined to work underground to keep the Eloi happy It may have been that way in the older version of the movies, but in the book both species had badly declined and were only semi-intelligent and considerably smaller than present day humans.

Actually it reminds me more of the beautiful and intelligent alphas from Huxley's Brave New World where people were intentionally bred into castes with the lowest being the "simian appearing, moronic" epsilons who did the most menial of tasks and were considered below all others.

As far as being two species goes, if they can easily interbreed they are still the same species just like a Great Dane and a Chihuahua are both Canis lupus familiaris which is a subspecies of the wolf. They are both dogs and they are the same species but they look very little alike. They can interbreed put I hope for the females sake that the Chihuahua is the male.

I can see it happening

the semi-intelligent "progressive" become entirely regressive ... start living in caves and dress in fig leaves ...

the intelligent conservatives continue to slowly but surely make life wonderful ...

the barbaric communists quickly die out ...

libertarians die out due to the drugs they insist are "beneficial" to their well-being ...

LOL

It seems they think this already. The libs are the 'morally superior' along with being 'smarter' than the 'lower class'. That would be the drooling, gun loving, nascar watching, Christian, dorks like me...

They call this guy a scientist? He sounds like a plagiarist.
