The Next Stage of Evolution: How Will the Human Species Evolve?

Next Stage of Evolution

Scientists argue that evolution is the gradual change in the genetic structure of species in order for them to adapt to the environmental changes. Evolution is based on the past, hence leaving the question of how the modern humans will evolve in future? Some claim there will be alien colonization or men might be living on mars, but these are mere suggestions without any surety. Let us take a peek at what might happen to us in near future.

Evolution stopped

What if we are evolving no more? “The survival of the fittest” theory is no longer applicable, as it is clear that humans are not the weakest of the species anymore and now are able to survive through proper medical care. Crossbreeding is no longer practiced, hence making it hard to pass genetic mutations to generations. Moreover, environmental changes are no longer leading to human evolution or there is no need for adaptation since humans can control the environment themselves.

Evolution continuing

What if we are still evolving but secretly? Studies show that females show signs of evolution as they have become much stronger and plumper over time. Another sign of evolution is the fact that presently people tend to breed on the basis of class, hence passing their characteristics to their offspring. This distinguishes their offspring from others.

Adoption to technology

With the advancement in technology, mostly biotechnology, the next generations will take technology as a part of their existence. Their bodies and genetic structure will be integrated with devices through genetic engineering; making them more superior and causing a new type of human species.

Life on another planet

With the eagerness of humans to know what’s beyond their planet, they will create newer environments outside the earth where future humans will make their homes. The environments will be much different from the once on earth, so they will have to adapt to thoose. This will lead to a whole new species from those that are presently on earth.
