    we'll have tod ecide for ourselves, as we now have the technology (eugenics, genetic engineering, etc) to decide how our species should evolve.

    or we could evolve into cyborgs, but then if that happens then we will probably have to ask what evolution is in the first place.

    evoultion has to do with genetic changes that can effect how the body looks or functions internally and externally. Becoming cyborgs and using surgerys isn't really evoultion, and besides, evoultion is suppose to take thousands and thousands of years. We're in the A. D. period that which has only seen 2,005 years. Not alot of time to see any drastic changes in human evoultion. I think that's what we're forgetting here. Evoultion effects an entire population, not just a few individuals, and it takes a long long time for these changes to occur. I don't think anything will truly happen to make humans evolve and until we expand into space. Seeing that separation can cause evoultion, right?

    I think the fact that we'll live longer is. The age average will go up and continue to go up over the years. I wish I could say something like athletically we'll become better, but I just dont see that happening for a long while.

    Perhaps, but doubtful. when you think about it, humans have been evolving for millieums. I mean, how else did we get black people, and asians, and indians and europeans to look so different? That's evidence to human evoultion right there if you ask me. We've already done a great deal of evolving.

    First of all, I resent that. I'm about 5'3", and while being a little taller would strike my fancy, I don't like being called a "lido shortie", as you so eloquently put it. e_e

    Secondly, because of the way genes work, there is always a chance a short person will be born. I completely forget the name of the system, though, but even if you're tall, you may have a short gene lying dormant within you. It's the same way as how two people carrying the Down's Syndrome gene, but don't have the disease, can have a child with Down's Syndrome.
