A scientist reveals "strange" evolutionary traits that may distinguish humans in the future

Evolutionary biologist Nicholas Longrich has revealed strange ways in which humans will evolve in the coming centuries, including women becoming pregnant at advanced ages.

“We have largely eliminated predators as a selective factor,” said Longrich, an Alaskan-born academic at the University of Bath in England. “Violence has also decreased dramatically as a selective factor. It (violence) still happens, but fewer people die from war or murder.” "At no time in human history."

The disease is also mostly, but not completely, eradicated: The coronavirus is not influenza, but it is not the Black Death either, according to Longrich. 

Here are 3 ways in which humans might evolve:

A more attractive generation

The scientist explained: “In times of hunting and gathering, there are two men, one of whom is very handsome but is foolish and gets killed. The woman is attracted to the other man only because he is alive (he may be ugly).”

But in the future, as fewer people die, attraction will become more important, especially when people meet their partners digitally.

He hypothesized that with women choosing partners who were proportionate to their height, and both sexes choosing facial symmetry, humans would become taller and more beautiful.

“Women often choose height, and I think we will have lower levels of baldness,” he said.

Fertility

Longrich said that people with many children will drive human evolution, as the genes of individuals who can reproduce longer will be favored.

He added: "It is possible that some people would have more children if their fertility remained longer." Delayed menopause in women will also make them more likely to continue having children, and thus delay aging and live longer.

Skinny build

Longrich said that women may tend to prefer men with a lean physique, such as Jackie Chan, rather than men with athletic bodies, in order to have more children regardless of shape, thus spreading the genes for the father's body (with a small belly).
