This Is What Humans Will Look Like In 1,000 Years

All lives on earth are constantly evolving. And as one of the living beings, humans too are evolving. In the last 130 years, humans have already seen a boom in height. So even 100 years from, we will be getting much taller.

All lives on earth are constantly evolving. And as one of the living beings, humans too are evolving. In the last 130 years, humans have already seen a boom in height. So even 100 years from, we will be getting much taller.

Also in the last 40000 years, thousands of our genes have evolved. With today’s gene editing tools like CRISPR, we may be able to control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of ageing.

Humans have also been making technological advances so much that one day we may merge with machines that will enhance our health and our ability to see and hear. Also, we may eventually start to colonize other planets.

Watch this video by Tech Insider explaining how humans will evolve to look differently in 1,000 years.

  1. You’ve hit on few points I haven’t thought about. What do you think about the evolution of a 6th finger. I know it happens once in a while now, but really not a useful digit.

    1. If you lost your pinky finger, your hand would lose 50 percent of its strength. While most evolutionary scientists say evolution of 6th finger wouldn’t be much beneficial, I think it would be (if it’s fully functional like the rest of the fingers). For example, your hand would increase its grip strength, and also you could definitely type faster. Well, that’s just my opinion and it opposes the Darwinian Theory which says “most of humans would be six-fingered if having an extra finger were really a beneficial mutation. Natural selection eliminates characteristics that are less beneficial to the organism.”
