I came to a sad conclusion after reading the following in the Nov 18-24 issue of [i:148208b9a2]New Scientist[/i:148208b9a2]:
[quote:148208b9a2]"...[I]f there is a major disaster some of us will survive. Then, nature will take over and biological evolution will start again, since cultural evolution will have failed. I confidently predict there will be selection for small people with bodies sufficient to support the required amount of brain power. Obesity will have been solved."[/quote:148208b9a2]
Hmm, Sydney Brenner might be right about the "selection for small people". But what about my kids (and my beloved selfish genes) who practically live on antibiotics (that’s if they were to survive the "major disaster")? My genes would cease to exist the moment the biological evolution would take over.
Thank you, Dr. Fleming, for giving my genes a chance! But we have to go now; the trilobites and the dinosaurs are waiting for us…:cry:
