    We learned a while ago in school that if one society is cut off from all others for a long peropid of time, they begin to look alike because of the small gene pool.
    But is not the whole world one big village now that transportation is as easy as it is (and it will only get easier).
    So, theoretically, in ten thousand years, will we all look almost exacly the same? Just a thought.

    What you speak of here is genetic diversity and gene pool size. If the gene pool is limited by the amount of people in the society then you run into to very little variance to keep the diversity going. It becomes homogenous and smoother, if you will. Which explains why they start to look similar and have similar weaknesses to dieases. When you look at the world for a gene base then the combinations are endless and with such you will not wind up with the same results.

    Yes!

    I think it will take a very long time before we all start to look the same, but since people travel more and move to other countries and start families there, then we are definitely blending more. Maybe this is happening because the local genes-pools are getting clogged up and we need fresh genes to ensure the humanity from dying out?

    By the time that is a problem then there will be a solution.

    I guess the question is "Is there a solution needed?"

    Well...

    Since the "greys" are our future selves looking for fresh genes, I guess it will be a problem. But that is so far away in the future for us, so I think that if the human gene-pool will eventually grow bad, then just let it do so. Why should humanity always exist? We can become something else instead, for a change...

    I would like that we would become like butterfly-humans, wouldn´t that be nice? With beautiful coloured wings?

    No....?

    I don´t think so...but I can´t be sure of course...nobody can. We could all be something completely differen than what we think we are. Why do you ask?

    The Future Human Being.
    Yeah, yeah.
    Babbling a lot again don't you all??

    What future human beings????
    If we go on like this, we are all climbing out of the water again in a billion years or so.
    Future humans... You are crazy.
    We can't live our lives now, without fighting and arguing.
    What do you think???
    It goes on and on like this???
    Impossible!
    Humans have to learn not be to fast with what they say to others.
    And humans have to be careful they don't get stuck in this paranoid behavior.
    For then, there is no future...

    Yes Banshee...

    If we continue like this, there will not be any future human beings to worry about...

    There is something that can be added to this thread that Wet1 touched upon but probably didn't even realise.

    Although the gene pool might seemingly be suffering from diversity, I have a few points I would like to make.

    The genepool doesn't just consist of genetics caused by breeding, but that too of food chains, and also of diseases.
    Everytime a carnivorous or omnivorous human eats a creature, they are intaking proteins from that animal which were previously destined for their genetic structure, these eventually work there way into that person and has caused a noticable effect through genetics.

    that's why dogs, horses, fish, sheep have a genetic relationship with man (because if they don't get eaten by one, they usually tend to eat one another, although sheep usually spit dogs out because they taste funny when wet)

    When a person catches a disease, the body might respond by creating antibodies, which change the genetic makeup of that individual. When that individual finds a partner and they have child between them, some of those antibodies can actually be passed on (Most noticably if the female is the one with the antibodies, because their isn't much antibody code's passed on from men.)

    Of course there is a relationship here with two things, Protein of a creatures genetic structure, and protein of a virus. Two things that seem to occur is that particular genetic flaws can be passed from one type of creature to a seemingly different type of creature... For instance New variant CJD (BSE) or mad cow disease.

    You do not have to wait 10,000 years. It will happen in 100 years. First, using gene therapy, everyone will want a good looking kid. The facial features will be slightly tweaked to be close to the parents, yet with a morphing feature to an ideal good look in the respective race. Then the races will lose their identities, because, good looks are irrespective of the race. The first generation will merge into their version of good look and body feature with Miss Universe as the guide line....and so on...

    Ultimately, there will be some variations like eye color, hair color (by design), short or medium or tall body, but they all look fairly close like Japanese do today in the eyes of the west.

    Now that the subject has come up about humans looking alike in the future, I must admit that for the past several years I have been noticing that many people look alike at the present time.
    I thought maybe it was just a coincidence, but this futuristic idea might already be in the making.

    Sorry Kmguru, it was so tempting.
    Try to imagine then.
    I bet you laugh too.

    And let's get real.
    Future human beings???
    Let's see if there is a future.
    Maybe then, we have Future human beings.
    First let us take care of Nature.
    Nature is killed by us, humans.
    Nature can take revenge.
    It happened in Ancient Times.
    It will happen again.

    Earth and her Nature will heal themselves.
    And that will go with much human lives.
    As is the right from Earth.
    We misabuse her terribly.
