From /.
According to an article at the BBC, an evolutionary theorist in London suggests that humanity may split into two sub-species within the next 100,000 years. From the article: '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.'

Read the first comment. :^)

Update: Here's a link to the discussion. (Sorry about that!)

Here's a link to the BBC article.

This is yet another proof of the fact that a lot of researchers are simply very lonely people. "Is that a pistol in your pocket, or have you been thinking about evolution?"

It's also worth noting that the "alpha" species bears no resemblance to Dogbert. How is he going to allow this to happen to his new ruling class?

Based on this little bit of info, I would have to agree. Current conservative, or at least centrist to right leaning individuals, will continue to evolve with intelligence, rationality and common sense. The leftists, in order to escape the imagined horrors of global warming, will have reverted into cave dwellers, and eventually live completely underground, living like moles, or more appropriately, orcs. At that time, they'll worship images of Al Gore as their deity.

Bert, I'm sure that with people like you and me in the DNRC, Dogbert will be just fine with the way things go (and he and Scott Adams will have been dead for many millenia -- unless Dilbert(c) goes the way of Blondie, Hagar, et al). I mean we fit most of the quals of uber mensch as described above.

David - :^) lol

Guess these evolutionists were bored and rented Gattaca then based their theories on the movie. I do like the second comment tho:o)
