There is no such thing as an evolutionary peak. Evolution has no end. Evolution is not a process that has an end goal of perfection. There are a great many changes that could happen to us and will happen to us, unless we go extinct.

You have to remember we did not come about in heavily polluted concrete jungles. The fact that we now do is the most likely cause of future human evolution if we for 1000`s of more years continue to live in these places.

nacho187:

I think humans will eventually modify themselves. We`re already fairly close to having enough knowledge to do so. Technological changes (e.g. cybernetics, internal nanomachines, etc) wouldn`t be inheritable but biological modifications could be.

Incidentally, the Minotaur was part bull, not part horse, and was bipedal. You`re probably thinking of centaurs.

Even considering anything that could be added that would improve upon our current design, there would be no natural predator(s) to continue the trait along down the line. As I stated already we could only adapt to a climate change, even then we would adapt(most likely) technologically, not through natural selection. Any threat greater than us (aliens, zombies, stuff like that) would not force us into an evolutionary change, but only, again, technologically advance ourselves as a species. Even then, I personally believe, we won`t be able to as we as a planet/species find too many differences among ourselves to pull together to face the threat.

BTW I am an atheist and I`m 16

The second being we will not evolve again, unless we experience a ice age or some natural event, as we are most likely (for life on earth at least) have reached an evolutionary peak. Meaning that (think about this next part) we as we are (ten fingers, ten toes, bipedal, eyes on top) can not be improved upon (evolutionary wise of course). Even then if you were to add something to us, there would obviously be major drawbacks (compared of course, to what we know/experience right now). The Minotaur (half horse half man I believe) for example seems ideal. This has worse drawbacks than we experience daily. The Minotaur, due to it`s size, must either run from a threat, or fight, as hiding (easy for us now as bipedals) would be incredibly difficult.

(yet again continued)

While on the subject:

We as a people will most likely not evolve or survive long enough for any descendants of any living organism on earth to see the 4,500,000,000

Only because of two main resins which can then be divided into a whole lot of sub-categories

The first being that we, as stated here by others, will drat up the earth. Even if something were to survive, let alone people, it would be too long for us to rebuild into a society capable of what we have already accomplished.

This is wrong.

I did some research on this once, Jehovah`s Witnesses did not predict the world would end in 1914.

They predicted that something big was gonna happen. Never did they say it was going to be the end of the world.

& Guess what something big did happen. WWI

I don`t know about this list, but there are a few.

Sol is going to become a red giant, which might literally end the Earth and will at the very least cook it to a crisp. Well before then, its energy output will probably rise to high enough levels to kill everything on Earth.

The Andromeda galaxy will collide with this galaxy, which is a pretty big deal and likely to mess things up on an incomprehensible scale.

Although you`re looking at a few hundred million years absolute minimum for Sol getting too hot and several billion years for the other two. If humans still exist in a few hundred million years they`ll probably have the technology to do something about it.

Hey, at least all the years from now on will be covered by some theory or other.
I wonder who will be right in the end and how glad they will be to have `won`

On a second thought, that`s a really long time, we`d probably have figured out by then how to travel super fast and live in another solar system.

/sigh
Yes, you are correct. Also grammar is a noun, not a verb, so grammared/grammered would be grammatically incorrect. I wasn`t trying to be a nazi, I was making a self referencing joke.

I believe it`s going to end in 1844. So I didn`t plan anything after that.

The world is such a small, cramped thing. I want to see the day when humans colonize other planets so they can say "End of the world? Pfff... whatever, we`ll still be around"

As far as I am personally concerned, the world ends the day I die. As it came into existance the day I was born, from my perspective.
