    Evolution does not work like that according to Darwinism. Beneficial mutations won't just happen like this. It needs an accidental mutation that is beneficial for survival that is then passed on to other generation by sexual selection. Also thinking of all the technology we possess those mutations may appear futile so will not be passed on through sexual selection as mates will not find any advantages in those very small mutation. For example we will not wake up with web between our fingers, it would be a very small membrane that would be beneficial in the competition to acquire food. But technology will compromise this type of competition so that individual with a very small membrane will not be more seductive to other mates, so they will not reproduce more than anyone resulting their mutated gene may just disappear in the gene pool. Voilà! A course in Darwin's evolution theory for free!

    How is it that so many people don't seem to get how evolution works? Like how everyone thinks that humans will magically evolve long, thin fingers to make us better at typing just because we all use computers. But for that to work, people with short, stubby fingers would have to die out, which they're not because the ability to type at forty words a minute isn't essential to survival.
    If it was, then all the people with short, stubby fingers would be so slow at typing that no office would hire them, so they most likely wouldn't have a job, so they'd have no money to live, and they'd all die.
    Meanwhile, all the people with long, thin fingers would be amazing at typing, so they'd be fast-tracked into all the cushiest positions, so they'd have plenty of money to live long and happy lives, and they'd settle down and start families and their genes would be passed on to the next generation. Eventually, the short-stubby-fingers genes are eroded from the gene-pool, leaving only the long-thin-fingers genes, and evolution works its course to make all future humans have long thin fingers.
    This is obviously not true.
    What actually happens is that, while it may be an advantage to have long, thin fingers for typing, it's not enough of an advantage to make any meaningful difference; and either way, people with short stubby fingers are having children every day in every country the world over, so the evolutionary process is null and void.
    Don't believe the hype that we're all going to become super-intelligent aliens, because it isn't true. It's a myth propagated to credulous morons pop-culture pseudo-science. End of story.

    This guy has absolutely no idea how evolution works. Because we may need to have webbed feet and hands to survive, we can't just decide to grow them. He acts like once we want something, we can force our bodies to evolve. Please people with children, do NOT send your kid to any school he is working at.

    The paleoanthropologist doesnt say 5000 years but the title does. 5000 years is about 200 generations give or take. That is not enough time to have any major differences at all. Only very slight variations unless we had a directed breeding program.

      We also dont die before we have offspring because of technology and medicine. It use to be common. Now its rare. That alone will have a huge affect on humans. Whether we will even be around for another 10,000 years is another question.

    ive noticed that people are not as hairy as they used to be when i was a kid. well the reason is because i have had many bfs and most of them have very little hair on their bodys and i dont think its a coincidence. was born in the 80s btw. Also kids are much taller and a little over weight. when i was a kid if you were chubby you got made fun of and ppl didnt want to play w you (kids are cruel) and now there are lots of chubby kids.

  • Bruce Johnson
    Bruce Johnson 13 days ago

    Random evolutionary changes such as webbed feet would only progress if those with webbed feet survived to breed much more than people without webbed feet. It's the same thing with every example he mentioned. People with smaller jaws and fewer teeth would hold no advantage over those who had larger jaws, therefore I don't see how any of his examples could be accurate. Evolutionary advantage is actually largely dismissed among humans, due to their use of technology to negate changes which would threaten survival.

    Evolution does not initiate neither from a change in environment nor does it speed up. It happens from millions of years of tiny genetic mistakes, that coincidentally better the organism in its environment, building up for a very long time to eventually improve the organism. Furthermore, considering we do not kill cancer patients and deformed babies, these changes will not be part of the human population as a whole. But this is just my two cents.

    This is the biggest shit I have ever heard of. If you want to know how we will look like in Year 5000, look back how we looked like in the Year 1000 BC. At this time, humans didnt looked much different than we now. Maybe a bit more hairy. The only thing that changed is our intelligence. And that is what will happen in the next 3000 years. We will get smarter, and not more.

    Just watch the movie Idiocracy ! it sums it up pretty well. Also on average the western IQ has dropped by 14 points since the victorian era, thought to be due to women of a lesser intelligence being more likely to have more offspring. My theory is we will have smaller eyes from staring at bright screens, smaller brains due to computers replacing our working memory, fair to translucent skin from lack of sunlight & vit D deficiencies, taller from selective breeding, elongated didgets from increasing use of hands and fingers and hairless body's due to living in air conditioned environments. That to me is a more plausible outcome.

    this isn't how evolution or natural selection works :/ we don't simply evolve webbed feet because it would be useful, adaptations don't know that they are useful to an organism. Mutation is the only raw material for evolutionary factors to act upon so you are basically asking the evolutionary dice to give us the perfect adaptation because we don't want to die. Genetic engineering would be the only way.

  • Jaimentalli
    Jaimentalli 26 days ago

    I believe in evolution, but this is just retarded. There are so many problems with this video. First of all, yes, the ice caps are melting. But no, earth won't just become a giant Atlantis where we all have to fucking live underwater and create new civilizations down there and bullshit. There will still be plenty of land, only many minor changes to coastal areas like florida will be gone and lakes and rivers will be bigger. Even if the earth was mostly water, we're not just gonna be like "oh shit. Most land on earth is gone. I guess we'll have to build cities and live underwater." That's fucking stupid. We'd either find and inhabit the remaining land areas, or die off because WE CAN'T LIVE UNDERWATER. Second of all, evolution takes hundreds of thousands of years. And that's for minor changes like bigger noses or stronger jaws. If your talking whole body changes, that's millions of years. 3000 years is FUCKING NOTHING. Unless we used technology to adapt, we are not going to magically turn into mermaids just because we attempt to go underwater. We'd die off, quickly, like i said. That's not how evolution FUCKING WORKS. I guess it's the fault of the retard that named this video, because this guy never mentions this happening in 5,000 years. Anyway, as for the volcanic ash thing: There is not nearly enough volcanos on earth to do that. And for the asteroid impact thing, certainly if it's an impact that changes the climate of the earth, then it would have to be big enough to wipe us out. We'd be dead. We'd probably be able to detect one LONG before it happens. Honestly, it's dipshits like these that are the reason many people don't believe in evolution. smfh
