In the Very Distant Future, Is It Possible for the Human Race to Evolve into More Than One Species?
It might happen even in very near future.If we start to meddle with our own genes and we start to colonize other planets, then it will be rational for different populations to make different alterations. People living on Mars might modify themselves to be able to breath in thick atmosphere, while people living on orbital stations might replace their legs with much more useful second pair of hands. There will be other feasible alterations and eventually these populations might diverge into completely different species.â¢ Suggested ReadingWhich is better: to be Colonel in Indian Army or Captain in Indian Navy? Who has more authority and responsibilities? Who has more manpower under them? How many personnels are under the Colonel and how many personnels are under the Captain?Both the ranks are equivalents. Usually, a Colonel is the commander of a Battallion or Unit which might have upto 500 people. Of course, there are colonels who hold staff appointments in the HQ of a Brigade, Division, Corps, Command or Army HQ. Such guys may have just ten people directly under him.Similar thing goes for a Captain of the Indian Navy. When he is in command of a ship or a station, depending on the size, he could have many people under him. When he holds a staff appointment, he might have just ten.------Why are Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Andaman-Nicobar and Tripura not part of Bangladesh, when they all are Bengali? When will they join Bangladesh?Why should they even be considered part of Bangladesh? Wow, you mention about being all Bengali. What were you doing when this Bengali was brutalized in Calcutta and Noakhali at the call of your leader.. Nah! other than some similarity on account of the language - there is hardly anything common between Bangladesh and the people living in India. Stay happy where you are, respect the border and it will be great if you accept the sacrifice made by people from across the border in 1971, it will be okay if you dont------Why is India not part of the International Space Station in spite of major ISRO successes in recent years? Like China, does India plan to have its own space station in the space?Essentially despite the large number of flags that show the nations involved there are essentially 5 agencies participating. These are NASA, Roscosmos , ESA, JAXA, and CSA, with each nation contributing a significant element to the project. India did not have sufficient budget or expertise when the project began over 20 years ago.India has caught up fast however so may be a partner in the future however, either with NASA, China or another agency. Currently it does not have a booster that could lift a station to orbit. But no doubt that will come because the cost of space launches is very reasonable.------Why was George Floyd arrested?Supoosedly was trying to use a counterfeit bill to purchase cigarettes. Does not matter what he did no one deserves to die like he did. I believe it was right they upgraded the cops crime to 2nd degree murder. He the officer, was either extremely stupid or did not think he would be charged. But having 20 citizen complaints with convictions on two in his jacket. He should have lost his badge in exchange for bars a long time ago. Shows how powerful police unions are!.------Why does Vietnam have a much higher IQ than India, although they have similar GDP per capita?IQ is a score derived from one of the several standardized tests designed to test human intelligence,while GDP is one of the primary indicators used to assess the health of national economy.IQ differs from one individual to another,so it depends on the individual,GDP depends on the masses.Also just because certain group of people having IQ scores does not mean that the value of goods produced by them should be higher.GDP can decrease due to external factors like war,recession but IQ is not affected by that.------Do you write less on Quora nowadays?When Im tired I tend to write short answers. There are many times where Im not well and I tend to leave Quora completely for days or weeks. Right now, even after going out Im not getting any better. So generally Im writing less these days. Im happy that you all share my answers on twitter and translate them but im simply unable to provide great answers like I used to. Ill soon go back to writing my ebook Superamas Galaxy Party once I feel better.------Which movies spoil the entire plot in the very beginning?Not ruined at the very beginning, but the entire plot twist blown by one word*.The VillageAn isolated American community living in fear of creatures that prey on them if they stray too far from their homes, seemingly set in the 19th century.A really cleverly written plot which sadly falls apart when one of the characters, discussing her past, says just one word which rips the historical rug out from under the story, launches it forward a hundred-or-so years and you can throw that clever twist at the end into the*Dumpster..------What was the significance of the Red Woman being so old?Thanks for the A2A! I think the significance of Melissandre (aka the Red Woman or Red Priestess) being shown as old when she removes her choker is that George RR Martin wants us to know she is not what she seems to be. She has referred to illusions in the past, and she is clearly one herself. I dont believe her to be all evil or all good. Hopefully, season 8 gives us at least a glimpse of who she really is. And if she happens to go out in a flame if glory, even better!------What if someone from the future traveled back in time and caused this chaos in 2020?Are you looking for an excuse?The human species doesn't need any help from the future, or from anywhere else, to get itself into it's current state - it is quite capable of doing so on its own.If you want to look at it from a positive point of view, you are actually experiencing evolution in action because the young who are susceptible will die-off before reproducing and those that are resistant will provide the future population.It is just unfortunate that there are so many 'unintended consequences'/collateral damage in the older population. (very bad joke).------What are the advantages and disadvantages of Pentecostalism over traditional Protestant churches?Pentecostalist sects are into salvation by works. They dont believe in eternal security, nor in the Perseverance of the Saints. And theyre obsessed with their false categorization of Christians who have and have not been baptized with the Holy Spirit, viewing those who merely have received the Spirit have not been baptized with the Holy Spirit, and that such baptism is reserved for the elite who then pretend to speak in tongues as a sign of their superiority over other Christians. Its sickening.------Was Jimmy Carter a good President of the United States?Abysmally bad!!! The worst presidents weve had in my lifetime even worse than Nixon far worse!He was a good man, but way out of his league as a president. Total failure. Double digit inflation, double digit interest rates, AND double digit unemployment. Also a total downer brining an emotional malaise to the people. No spine to stand up to Iran, very, little positive to say about him other than he helped build houses for the poor with Habitat for Humanity.Again, a very good man but a god awful President------If you could genetically redesign the human race how different would it be?Several suggestions:Humans can breathe underwater.Women only can get pregnant with a conscious decision. (Some spiders can do this)Humans go into suspended animation instead of death when deprived of oxygenPeople can change gender by force of will. (This could either be a good thing or a bad thing. It might reduce sexism, but on the other hand, people might be coerced into one gender or the other)People can easily turn on or off specific immune responses.Pee is just water. Poop is little dry pellets------Why do people like Oberyn so much?Because he just doesn't care what anyone thinks. Oberyn breaks with all courtly tradition by bringing his bastard paramour to the royal court. He's known for being a master of poisons and fighting, and ridicules Cersei and Tywin for their cruelty and prudishness. He knows that his family holds a Lannister ward, Princess Myrcella, so he has protection in the capital. And he's willing to fight for Tyrion, as an excuse for exposing Tywin's treachery in killing his sister and her Targaryen children.In short, he's a righteous badass------What does an educated Chinese person think about the Chinese government?The Chinese are unique people on that planet. What they care most is money, food and family. They dont care much about politics.The Qing dynasty lasted 300 years, founded by ManJu nomads who is first class. Manju is greatly outnumbered by Chinese, yet still Chinese have lived 300 years under their rule without much question about it.Without outside push, todays Chinese most likely live under Chinese Communist Rule with all these problem within the system for a long time. They might not like it, but will not do anything either.So, the answer is they dont like it and that is all------If smoking was banned, what would happen to frequent smokers?A fair percentage of smokers would quit, maybe not right away but as their supply runs out and cigarettes become harder to get. Hard core smokers would continue to smoke as there would be an extensive black market that law enforcement couldnt possibly control because it already has its hands full with narcotics and other controlled substances, illegal alcohol distilleries, and so forth. The overall effect would be to strengthen organized crime and induce poor people to spend too much of their money on cigarettes. Although it would slightly reduce health care costs, banning smoking would not be a good idea------How is it that the Beatles are ranked above a band like Led Zeppelin when they were much more talented?Theres no official band rankings. However, you are correct: the Beatles are usually described as the greatest band ever, and Zeppelin is often described as the greatest rock band.I think there are four reasons.The Beatles came first.The Beatles defined what pop music is.The Beatles were accessible to a wider audience.The Beatles wrote more well-known songs than anybody else.By the time Led Zeppelin arrived, the pop music scene was already defined. Markets were becoming more niche and are dramatically more niche now than then------Can India ever get the whole of Kashmir?All thanks to cheap ,dirty ,vote bank politics back in 1947, India will never get back whole of kashmir as it was meant to be.India would have tackled the kashmir issue as it tackled hyderabad.Sending the army to take control of the region was the best nehru should have done .Now case is too complicated to be solved.Kashmir was given the option to either go with india or pakistan or stay independent .With involvement of UN,pakistan and china there is not going to be any kind of resolution anytime soon------What is the biggest human weak spot?I am (almost) a black belt with more hand-to-hand practice. Accordingly, I will presume that you mean in a realistic (accessible) and physical manner.The highlighted area is the solar plexus, which covers the diaphragm. If youve ever had the wind knocked out of you, it was probably related to that spot. I call that the biggest because in a fighting stance, your elbows are are tucked and your knuckles are at your cheeks.What this means is that, with enough speed, you could land a hard palm-up punch to the solar plexus.I reeeellly hope I helped and answered the right thing!------Which tweet really infuriated you?Alka Lamba - Congress leaderYogeshwar Dutt - Olympic medal winner in wrestling.Apologies for making you read this disgusting tweet by Alka. I am sure she was not in her senses while tweeting this. No one even think of disgusting a national hero like this. Shame on Alka.translation -Alka : All the bjp leaders are Illegitimate children of RSS.Yogeshwar: you are mentally sick to write something like that about PM Modi. Whole country stands with him.Alka - Ask your mother about your real dad. Mother's dont lie. I am sure PM Modi is your real father. That's why you are hurt!------SPOILERS What did people think about the fight between Oberyn Martell and Gregor Clegane? Did people find the outcome disturbing?I still remember how terrifying it was. Although I had read the books, I never expected this much of a magnitude in the death scene. It made me numb for almost half a day, could not even eat my lunch..After this, Pedro Pascall (the actor who plays Prince Oberyn Martell) shared the below pic online. It was only after this that I felt a bit better..Everybody loves Oberyn: Game of Thrones Pedro Pascal is the most popular man in WesterosSince then I have watched the battle scene a 100 times.. Not at all affected
