My theory (or idea) is that right now, the human evolution is going in two separate directions:
Direction 1: Evolution in the Rich Parts of the World
In the rich parts of the world, humans have plenty of access to food, medical treatment, and education. And there is a lot of genetic exchange between populations that were isolated from each other in the past.
As Dr. Hawks points out in his lectures for this course (Hawks, 2014), evolution started to accelerate for about 15.000 years ago. This was mainly due to the development of agriculture (Wikipedia, 2014) and different kinds of societies, that enabled a growing number of sedentary humans to coexist. And that led to the spreading of new useful genetic traits very rapidly. But today, (in the rich parts of the world) with our advanced medical treatments and technology, we are about to significantly lower the evolutionary selection pressure in several key areas: The im…
