    BBC 10/17/06:

    "Human species 'may split in two'"

    "Humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years' time as predicted
    by HG Wells, an expert has said.

    Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics expects
    a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge.

    The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said - before a decline due
    to dependence on technology.

    People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity
    to divide into sub-species, he added.

    The descendants of the genetic upper class would be tall, slim, healthy,
    attractive, intelligent, and creative and a far cry from the 'underclass'
    humans who would have evolved into dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like
    creatures."
