Do you believe that the human race is at its peak? Does anyone else think we're done evolving and that things won't change for at least another 1000 years? If there's anything undiscovered in this world, do you think it will be discovered by our generation or the next? Is there a possibility of a next step for evolution or growth without science?

I think we could evolve more, but no noticeable changes for a long, long time.

People are already much taller on average now than they were 300 years ago.

We never evolved, we were never fish or monkeys or anything, we have ben the way we are forever, so were not going to evolve any more, i do believe are technology will only get better, one day we will have a watch were you press a button and think of were you want to go and your atoms will break down and travel at light speed and get there

I think we'll grow more, but it will be influenced by science no matter how you look at it. If and when we continue to evolve, some part of our modern technology will have had some sort of influence over it, if not being the entire cause.

some people actually did a study on this

unless old people start reproducing more there will be no more evolutions

I think that once the majority of the population no longer believes in a god, humanity will take a huge jump in intellectual evolution. I know I just sound like a stereotypical angry heathen, but I truly believe that a lack of belief in god is an evolutionary accomplishment.

Technology is increasing exponentially, so we should advance a lot fairly rapidly.

Quite the opposite. The theory of evolution is what most people know as "survival of the fittest", or basically, whoever suits the environment will survive to breed, and those who don't will die and become extinct. I think humans have evolved to what we needed to, and now we're changing the environment to suit us and not the other way around. Unless something major happens, we won't change much at all.
#14
evolution occurs when a need arises, we can help ourselves now (technology, medicine etc) so besides taller or smarter, its not like we need to gain wings or gills

Except our spines are very much curved and the creation story in Genesis is retarded and blatantly wrong.

No, prior to the mythical flood that you believe with no supporting evidence (no, the bible doesn't count) people lived a considerably shorter period of time than they do today.

Edit: and if you want to continue this conversation take it to the creationism vs evolution thread

Exactly. The human race has eliminated Darwin's theory of Evolution for itself. It now only really applies to other species.

You're correct. I agree with the guy, but I think it's a societal advancement as opposed to a genetic one.

actually prehuman species may have evolved to form the conception of god or gods. the idea of a god is very complex considering the fact that pre homosapiens did have an idea of god or religion. on a sociological standpoint, humans developed a part of the brain that deals with the belief of superstitions and whatnot. not that that suggests there is in fact no god, but your reasoning unfair to those who are intellectual and believe in god. but in any sense, the don't blame the idea or conception of god for intellectual decline. 1, there are other more significant factors and 2, pseudo intellectual concepts that people stand for are just as bad as their own views about religion.

While they are fueled by nurture, there is evidence that the human brain is naturally hardwired to believe in god. I believe Christopher Hitchens discussed this in God is Not Great.

Bravo. I second this. It will not only be an accomplishment in human evolution (perhaps cultural evolution...religion definitely isn't genetic), but an achievement for humankind. Unfortunately, as it stands, religion still has the potential to destroy the world I think. It can and it will, essentially, unless it is phased out. The coincidence of nuclear weapons in violent, rapist theocracies like Iran cannot be ignored as a distinct possibility.

So, granted religion doesn't destroy civilization, evolution in humans will not (has not) stopped entirely; it probably never will. As long as there are external influences guiding whose genes get passed on, evolution will continue.

Oh, and the whole creationist thing needs to stop now. Especially in the United States. It can only be a bad thing for our cultural and technological development if children are told at every turn to "believe God, not the scientists."

Fvck religion.

I think that raw intellectual power and the tendency to believe superstition are related, but not completely linked. As I said, I believe it is an evolutionary trait, so I honestly think that on a genetic level, that some people simply can't control whether or not they believe in god. I don't consider theistic intellectuals less intelligent, just less evolved.

that makes no sense at all. Theirs plenty other religions besides Christianity, and their were many more before Judaism (the root of christianity), and the majority before than were polytheistic.

Wrong on both counts. Atheist is basically the "rest state" of religion to put it scientifically. It's what there is before religion is taught.

And of course there would be cults. A cult is defined as followers of an unorthodox, extremist, or false religion or sect who often live outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader. People form cults for money, power and personal gain and don't have a religious motivation.

what i am saying is that people evolved to have this portion in our brains to believe in superstitions. the real question is why? when according to natural selection and the theory of evolution suggest that we evolve towards advancement. this is why i personally see that your argument is flawed.

Presently, the current above this one is titled "Man wakes up to find a penis tattooed to his leg."


I'd say that's a goddamn pinnacle of our advancement. If you think about it, we've come a long way to have the technology to imprint permanent artwork onto skin. The human race is pretty goddamn advanced and I can't see any way to go but up.
