Human species 'may split in two' (BBC News)

From BBC News (UK): 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 (info - 2nd entry) of the London School of Economics (LSE) 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. [Evolution, Science, Genetics, Sex, Theory]
