This post is pre-mature.
In around 4.5 to 4.6 million years from now, ATS scholars will likely resurrect this message and work the issue and fix the problem.

According to The Conversation Website


the Y chromosome has degenerated rapidly, leaving females with two perfectly normal X chromosomes, but males with an X and a shrivelled Y. If the same rate of degeneration continues, the Y chromosome has just 4.6m years left before it disappears completely.

Recommendation to webmaster: Preserve this message for millions of years into the future, so future ATS readers can remedy the situation before it becomes out of control. Thank you.

You’re joking right?

Besides in that many millions of years we won’t even have internet websites or “archaic” information transfer

If we’re even alive as a species

And just what makes you think that humans will still be around in 4.6 million years?

Hi ManBehindTheMask,
Yes, indeed.
Hopefully ATS webmasters will establish archives
deep underground to be retrieved by whatever species replaces
us then.

I forgot to mention that (oh, I hate to post this)
... that Y chromosomes from ET (done during alien abductions)
may be more robust and last longer.

It won't matter at that point because we'll all be immortal brains in robot bodies.

..... Agreed..........................Ha ha, or even a thousand years. and even viable in a soup of past nuclear war fallouts. Areas will be uninhabitable for millennia.

IMO it's by design

For example, a recent Danish study, published in PLoS Genetics, sequenced portions of the Y chromosome from 62 different men and found that it is prone to large scale structural rearrangements allowing “gene amplification” – the acquisition of multiple copies of genes that promote healthy sperm function and mitigate gene loss.




The study also showed that the Y chromosome has developed unusual structures called “palindromes” (DNA sequences that read the same forwards as backwards – like the word “kayak”), which protect it from further degradation. They recorded a high rate of “gene conversion events” within the palindromic sequences on the Y chromosome – this is basically a “copy and paste” process that allows damaged genes to be repaired using an undamaged back-up copy as a template.


Sorry but were not going to turn in the Stargates Asgard.

Pretty much much thoughts, nobody that should, yet wants to talk about any real consequences of all that nuclear weapon testing, Vietnam poisoning Agent Orange, deliberate chemical experiments on people, or even a combination of all that...it's all been brushed under the carpet..didn't we win the war...yada yada!!

I prefer a Billy Goat body please! (I've mentioned this is a previous thread)

OH!!.. as a note of interest.
I believe this future Y Chromasome situation
was fortold in the classic DEVO song
"Shrivel up" from my personal favorite
album.
" Q: Are we not Men?"

* A fortelling anf fitting title.

or that there will even be separate genders at that time.

ATS scholars? LOL

There is nothing to fix and don't fret: the male of the species is not going to disappear. The SRY gene will probably move onto another chromosome to continue producing males. A recent study has also confirmed the Y chromosome is fighting its degeneration hard, and in some men it has developed some unusual structures to keep it safe and going. It's a small sample study, but still interesting:

Analysis of 62 hybrid assembled human Y chromosomes exposes rapid structural changes and high rates of gene conversion- 2017

Some mammals have already lost their Y chromosome, I'll try to find the article and post it here because it may show what could happen to us if this eventually happens.



Preserve this message for millions of years into the future, so future ATS readers can remedy the situation before it becomes out of control. Thank you.


Out of control? LOL I'm not sure if you are kidding or serious.

.... I wonder which is the real stronger gender.......

Only four point six million years? I don't plan on living more than eight hundred thousand years anyway.

No offence, but if you are correct, then I hope we are not around with people who think such inane things.

I said no offence....

Humanity will be long gone in 4.6 million years. I can assure everyone here of that. Based on how we have come this far in the last 2000 years. There is no way where humanity will make it beyond the next 5000 years.

Nothing but a joke.

4.5 million ???
We have not been here that long!
um! Evolution !
a great deal can happen in that time.

and that with out man messing about with DNA.
in 200 yeas we will be able to Make
man in to what ever he likes!

spend some time as a dolfin? a cat!
sounds good to me.

To quote Dr Ian Malcolm "Life uh uh uh...finds a way."

There are already certain species of aquatic animals that change sex or reproduce asexually. So 4.6 million years in the future the term 'go f*** yourself' could be used literally.

If we evolve and incorporate the reproductive methods of our fishy friends then online dating would be a nightmare.

*Man seeks woman*

*Woman seeks man*

*man seeks man*

*Woman seeks woman*

*man seeks himself*

I imagine future porn would be disturbing, but it's 4.6 millions years and that's a long time, if this is true science or evolution will correct the situation and leaving the toilet seat up won't be a felony.

YES! I totally agree with you and would hope AND pray the Webmasters also comb through and select my many witty and inspirational responses from the various forums I've visited to spur on and help encourage these future ATS scholars!

Our shared and collective contribution could could turn the tables on this "shrivel situation"!!

Ummm...it's all the estrogen in the drinking water...

That's why there's so many Nancy boys these days..."Not that there's anything wrong with that"...as Jerry Seinfeld often stated...

I am so glad I won't be around to see it if it did happen.

I love men and I don't ever want to see a world without them. Of course this will never happen, but just the thought of it saddens me.

I might be in my sixties but my heart is still in my teens. Some of my fondest memories involved men.

Get your mind out of the gutter. None of them involved what you are thinking right now.
