Well assuming nothing disastrous enough comes along and takes out all of us, civilization will continue to march along just fine. I can't imagine
that it would be all that much different from now in terms of racism. Of course it wouldn't really be racism since multiple races would not exist,
but I have a feeling that no matter what, human beings will always find a way to hate one another. It may be based on slight differences in skin tone,
or social affiliations, but I can't imagine it would bring about peace in any way.
Individuality will remain, sure we would all look extremely similar, but who cares, people would most likely continue to have very distinct
personalities, styles of clothes, what they like to do, etc.
I also imagine that there would continue to be a large amount of genetic diversity just like there currently is within any particular racial group.
Also as far as evolution goes, there is currently a debate amongst scientist concerning whether or not humanity is in a state of static evolution.
Meaning there will be very little change in the human genome as opposed to a member of the equine family or some other fauna group. The reason for
this is that humans no longer adapt to their surroundings, we force our surroundings to adapt to us. Which leaves little room for natural selection,
and other evolutionary devices to cause us any real change.
I agree however that our craniums and brain capacity will probably increase, but other than that, I can't see much happening.
Thanks for the thread, I love hypothetical questions. Pondering hypothetical situations is a great way to increase your own intelligence. Peace out.
